Our next meeting will be next Tuesday 10th March, from 5pm to 7pm at the Glenside Admin and Learning Services Building, Karrayarta Drive, Glenside
The speaker will be Kristy Acres who is a registered nurse now doing her PhD in collaboration with BPD Co. She spoke at a Sanctuary meeting in the past (can’t remember whether it was last year or the year before. I must be getting old!), to ask us to take part in the paper she was working on at that time about carer inclusion when we took our family member to ED’s. She interviewed a few of us to understand what the issues were and what it is we carers would like to be done differently. She presented her paper to nursing staff at a nursing symposium last year.
This meeting, she will be talking about delivery of services to BPD consumers at times of acute crisis and the process of bringing together the voices of patients, carers and clinicians at this time. She will include people’s experiences accessing emergency care delivery and consider ways it can be improved.
I do hope you will be able to attend and, if you like, and we have the time, share your experiences with Kristy.
The library will be open as usual for loans and returns
Hope to see you there!
