New Additions to Apollo

This Apollo Nursing Resource is an online resource to help the specialist nurse community communicate their work to others for the benefit of patients.

We have had many requests to change both the Job Planner and Service Summary documents from downloadable PDF’s to editable Word documents. We have listened to you, understood that it means that you could  download and save your documents and then add any additional text and information. Our response is clear, if it makes things easier for you, we will do it.

From today both the Job planner and Service Summary can be saved to your computer in word format. We hope you find that being able to alter and further personalise your work is helpful. Also we have added definitions to some of the terms found under the ‘What you do’ section of the job plan to aid your selection of the most accurate activities. When you place your cursor over the activities and hover,  short definitions will appear within a second or so.

Please do let Terri know what you think or any other suggestions you might have.

  • Job descriptions and job planning……. can they be standardised ?

    It is acknowledged that the CNS role is diverse and complex. Evidence demonstrates that CNS’s reduce inefficiency, drives innovation and improve the quality of care and the patients experience. Despite significant role development and evidence, there remains a lack of clarity and understanding about the roles, titles and responsibilities  of  CNS’s. As a response to this many… Read more »

  • Demonstrating the 6Cs in my service

    Yesterday we posted a new page on the website describing how the 6C’s, are values and behaviours and many consider these fundamental constructs in nursing  http://bit.ly/T2V6CJ.
