During a challenging year for the profession, the Nursing Times team were honoured to hear the stories and read the entries of those who entered the Nursing Times Awards 2020. The judges had a tough job deciding on the finalists and were impressed by the incredible innovation and resilience shown by the nursing profession during the Covid-19 crisis.
BBUK emerged as a finalist in four categories including, Children’s services and Continence Promotion and Care for projects with ERIC, to provide guidance and practical support to children in schools and PADS (Positive about Down Syndrome) for setting up closed Facebook groups, empowering and supporting parents to potty train their children and manage common continence problems. The Bladder & Bowel UK & PADS project was also shortlisted in two further categories including ‘Learning Disability’ and ‘Promoting Patient Self-Management’.
“Congratulations to all our shortlisted entrants and thank you to everyone who has entered the 2020 Nursing Times Awards.” said Nursing Times editor, Steve Ford.
