On 1 July 2021, Sarah Hardwick and Sasha Herring, both STRS retrieval nurse practitioners (RNP), launched a new and exciting education platform for nurses within the South Thames region, “STRS Nursing Outreach Programme.”
“As a service we recognise that study leave allowances throughout the region are limited. The COVID-19 pandemic necessitated rapid expansion of virtual medicine – including medical education. The RNP team have decided to embrace this change – we hope that an online format will make STRS nursing outreach education more flexible and readily accessible to staff across the region.
The programme is in its infancy and new material is constantly being added.
Your education link nurses will be sent details on how to access the programme.
Please log in and let us know other topics that you would like the RNP team to focus on.”
