Lunch & Learn Monthly Presentations26 February 2017
"Presentations of current research and information by nurses on issues that will benefit patient care delivery"
The importance of a safe, effective, quality service in response to patient need cannot be overemphasised. Here at Cork University Hospital a new Initiative “LUNCH & LEARN” was launched on Tuesday the 26th of January 2016.
This involves four nurses over the course of an hour divided into two 30 minute sessions delivering presentations on research which they have conducted. The impetus of Lunch & Learn is to provide a forum whereby nurses can disseminate their findings to a wider audience thus influencing the audience’s knowledge. It is hoped that this will positively influence patient care and motivate colleagues to undertake further education.
These sessions are held on the last Tuesday of each month excluding July & August in the Oncology Conference Room on the first floor by the Dunmanway Day Unit. Lunch is free for those who attend.
Booking via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 17.00 on the Thursday prior to the event is necessary. There are only 40 places available for each session (13.00-13.30 & 13.30-14.00) hence early booking is essential. It is necessary to arrive 10 minutes prior to each session to facilitate time to sign in and obtain beverage and food. This is a hugely positive step for nursing at Cork University Hospital. Quality, safety, research and evidence-based care are fundamental building blocks of a modern health system. Nurses and midwives have a key role in the delivery of healthcare in a rapidly changing healthcare arena.
