'It’s a shame great work never hits the headlines' Opinion Nursing Times

  1. One approach may be to say nurses don't need publicity for doing good things; certainly the posted comments on the NT site reflect the stance that a thank you is good enough.
    Another way of looking at it is to remember that failing to publicise good practice keeps good ideas away from our colleagues. Not everyone is motivated to look at journals or contribute to them - indeed I think nursing is very bad at doing this - compared to the field of education. We don't all seek the limelight for personal gratification but let's not keep quiet because some of the profession assume that those who have shared their good ideas are self seeking publicists.
    Nursing needs positive publicity - to encourage it as a career choice, and to remind those who are facing challenges in service improvement that someone else might have found tools that are useful for us. That is putting patients first, not ourselves.
