News Round Up

Published: 13 December 2012

A summary of the latest news and intelligence from around the Faculty.

Sue Colley has contributed to a celebratory ebook to mark the 30th year of the Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme.  Sue undertook this programme in 2007, when awarded a Florence Nightingale Senior Leadership Scholarship, and has maintained close links with colleagues in Oxford. Her contribution can be found on pages 14, 27 and the podcast on page 34.


Congratulations to alumna Róisín McKeon-Carter who has become the first ANNP (Advanced Neonatal Practitioner) student to win a leadership scholarship from The Florence Nightingale Foundation.  The bursary is worth up to £15,000 and will allow Róisín to look at how ANNPs are functioning within the wider neonatal workforce.  Her aim is to drive and promote the need for an advanced practice register linked to The Nursing and Midwifery Council. 


The project to develop a European MSc in Advanced Rehabilitation Technologies, funded by a grant from the prestigious Lifelong Learning Program: Erasmus Multilateral Projects Award, kicked off recently at a meeting hosted in Southampton.  Nine of the 10 European partner Universities visited the University of Southampton to get the project off the ground.

Dr Mary Gobbi provided professional training for the project partners in Masters Level programme design and the structures and regulations behind a collaborative European MSc.  The meeting was a great success and the future of the project is looking to be in great hands.


The Centre for Innovation and Leadership will be showcasing its MSc Clinical Leadership in Cancer, Palliative and End of Life Care at the Royal Society of Medicine Palliative Care Section Annual Research Meeting next Monday.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide an arena for the presentation of research projects, by MSc or MA students, to an interested but not overly threatening audience.

Dr Sue Duke, Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader MSc Clinical Leadership in Cancer, Palliative and End of Life Care, will be in attendance.
