    Climate change: nursing students rising to the challenge

    Climate change: nursing students rising to the challenge

    How are nursing students preparing for the health challenges of climate change?
    This episode of the Nursing Standard podcast explores how students and universities are ensuring their courses cover this vital topic.
    Nursing student Leonie Harrison and lecturer Alison Taylor discuss the proactive approach they are involved with to make their course at the University of Brighton more sustainable. This matters to nursing students as the climate emergency is a health emergency, listeners hear. Ms Harrison talks about Brighton students’ work with three other universities around the world to adapt and introduce the Planetary Health Report Card to nursing courses. This is a student-led approach to assess how planetary health is considered in all aspects of a nursing course.
    Ms Harrison tells journalist Erin Dean about the experience of using this at the University of Brighton, and how it is leading to practical changes to make their learning greener. The importance and power of nursing students in this area, both now and as the future nursing workforce, is emphasised in the episode.
    The pair also talk about how other universities can take a similar approach, and about the hope their work gives them for the future.

    Why do so many nurses have spooky stories?

    Why do so many nurses have spooky stories?

    What is it with nurses and ghost stories? Why does every hospital seem to be ‘haunted’ by a past patient or long-dead matron? This Halloween episode of the Nursing Standard podcast explores why so many nurses have a spooky story to tell.
    Our podcast guest Ciaran O’Keeffe is head of the School of Human and Social Sciences and associate professor of education and research at Buckinghamshire New University. Fans of the supernatural may be familiar with the work of Dr O’Keeffe, who studies haunting experiences and was a long-time regular on Living TV’s Most Haunted show.
    He talks to Stephanie Jones-Berry, Nursing Standard head of features, about his work with the paranormal and why he thinks nurses have so many ghostly interactions.

    How to cope with the emotional strain of being a nurse

    How to cope with the emotional strain of being a nurse

    The emotional distress of caring for seriously ill and dying patients can take its toll on nurses who may struggle with feelings of unresolved grief. If it is not recognised and dealt with issues can build up that can lead to burn out, compassion fatigue, inadequate care for patients and nurses leaving the profession.
     
    So, what can nurses do to protect themselves and maintain healthy and happy careers?
     
    This episode explores the findings of research conducted with children’s nurses and what it revealed about their experiences of caring for seriously ill and dying children. However, these experiences will not only be felt by those working with children but by nurses working with adults in many different settings.
     
    This episode looks at the psychology behind these issues and why at a time of immense pressure on services, increasingly complex care, acute staff shortages and the COVID-19 pandemic they are so important to deal with. There are some tips on what all nurses can do to maintain their well-being and what employers can do to support the workforce, including an argument that clinical supervision should be compulsory.
     
    Guests
    Speaking to Nursing Children and Young People editor Christine Walker are Alice Nugent, a psychotherapist at Dublin Business School, and Agnes Higgins, professor of mental health in the school of nursing and midwifery at Trinity College Dublin. They are two of the authors of the recently published study in the RCNi journal Nursing Children and Young People titled Nurses’ experiences of managing vulnerability when working with seriously ill children.
