The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has launched a series of animation resources designed to help nurses feel confident about their decisions and actions.
The first animation is about accountability. Seven more topics will be covered all the way through to December:
- Professional judgement
- Inclusivity and challenging discrimination
- Social media
- Speaking up
- End-of-life care
- Person-centred care
Dr Geraldine Walters CBE, NMC director of professional practice said: “The Code can sometimes be seen as a vehicle which is all about ‘holding professionals to account’. But, in these situations, we want to introduce you to the Code as your friend and guide.
“Caring with Confidence will bring your Code to life, supporting you to make the best professional judgements you can. It will be particularly supportive during the pandemic but the key principles and messages will continue to be useful throughout your career.”
