Congratulations to our 2020
Research Medal recipient
an Emergency Care
Clinical Nurse Consultant.
Wayne will use his $50,000 grant to trial the impacts of a dedicated Mental Health Companion caring for patients experiencing mental ill-health while in Emergency. Providing a safe and supportive experience for these patients and families will have the added benefit of improving the environment for staff and patients. Wayne strives to continually improve and innovate emergency care at Prince of Wales by advancing nursing education and integrating community-driven solutions into the way care is delivered.
The Prince of Wales Hospital’s Spinal Injury Unit is one of only two in NSW helping patients regain their lives with limited mobility. For our patients, there is no going back – instead they need to find a new way forward. Their journey begins here with many months of rehabilitation. Please support our spinal injury patients by funding vital medical equipment and ward modification aimed at making our patients as comfortable as possible whilst they adjust to their new lives.
The Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation was proud to support this informative video sharing why staff members within our Hospital believe NAIDOC week is important to them and how healthcare workers can further improve their care of our Indigenous Australians.
