The Scottish Cardiac Arrest Symposium 2016 – Register now!

THEY ALL DIE ANYWAY. WE SAID NO. WE SAID WE CAN BE BETTER. WE SAID SHIFT HAPPENS. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN. JOIN US.

This year’s Scottish Cardiac Arrest Symposium will be held on Friday 24th June 2016 in the John McIntyre Conference Centre, Pollock Halls, Edinburgh, in the Scottish Fire and Rescue training Centre, Cambuslang, Glasgow and in Aberdeen.
The theme of the conference is Shift Happens. We have planned an all star line up and anticipate another ‘sell-out’ event. There will be a chance to hear from colleagues and experts from around the UK and further afield. We’ll be highlighting the change in culture and clinical outcomes after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest across Scotland in after the launch of Scotland’s Strategy for OHCA.
Time to increase your knowledge and sharpen your skills. And of course to get better equipped to save lives, have fun and be awesome!
In common with previous Scottish Cardiac Arrest Symposia this year’s event will be free to attend. A very new feature is that this year will be a multi-site symposium. We will be streaming content from Edinburgh to locally hosted events in Glasgow and Aberdeen, in addition to the usual simultaneous free-to-view webcast available wherever there’s an internet connection!

We hope you can join us on the day, and you can join in the conversation now #SCAS16. Sign up at www.scas.scot

2017 Annual Team Meeting – EMERGE-RRG What does a Research Nurse actually do?

What does a Research Nurse actually do?

30 Nov 2017 | Miranda Odam

Working as a research nurse is an unusually challenging, stimulating and fascinating speciality - whether it is as a research nurse in emergency medicine, critical care or the Clinical Research Facility - research nursing has something for everyone. And any nurse can do it ;) NHS Lothian has an enormous portfolio of research happening on every ward and down every corridor. Research nurses identify suitable patients, and give them the opportunity to enter innovative and leading studies and trials. It is well know that research is an opportunity for patients, we also know that research improves patient care. So why not give it a go? There are band 5, 6 and 7 research nurse posts throughout NHS Lothian - and we would all be delighted to speak with you and share our appreciation for research. It's not dull, and you don't need to write your own research project - having an attention to detail and a love of team work are key characteristics, and of course a willingness to be enthusiastic and excited about your projects. Join us on 1st February 2018 to learn more about the role, and the various specialities that are research active Seminar room 6 Chancellors building, RIE www.wtcrf.education@ed.ac.uk
