'SELP' shortlisted in Nursing Times Awards 2016

Published: 11/07/2016

 We are delighted to announce that the Supplementary Experiential Learning Pathway (SELP) from Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust has been successfully shortlisted for the category ‘Nursing in Mental Health’ at the Nursing Times Awards 2016.
SELP was introduced to support and assist students to enhance and apply knowledge from theory to clinical practice, and is offered to first, second and third year students.
Theiba Khan, the lead clinician for SELP explains that: “SELP provides a safe, motivating and nurturing environment encouraging students to engage, achieve and enhance their nursing skills and practice. By embedding the 6C’s at the heart of SELP we encourage students to engage in evidence based and reflective practice to ensure that they are providing compassionate care to enhance the quality of the service user’s care and experience within our services”.
Theiba, along with Colin Burbridge, Lead service user representative, and a student nurse will be attending the shortlisting panel in September to present their entry for final judging.
This is a huge achievement in recognising the hard work that the team has put into supporting students throughout the three years of nurse training as they transition to newly qualified nurse.
Sue Hartley, Executive Director of Nursing, said: “I am delighted that the Supplementary Experiential Learning Pathway has been shortlisted for this award, it is a great achievement for the team and the Trust. We wish them the very best of luck at the judging panel, and the forthcoming awards ceremony in October.”
The Nursing Times Award Ceremony will be held on Thursday 26 October, at the Grosvenor House, London.
