This challenge is now closed. Stay tuned for news of our next challenge coming 6th October 2020.
We are delighted to announce that SameYou will be sponsoring the first challenge of the Nightingale Challenge Global Solutions Initiative. SameYou and Nursing Now believe that nurses have a critical role to play in brain injury recovery and should contribute to the development and innovation in this field.
Our challenge to nurses is: Identify the gaps in brain injury rehabilitation needs and available services. Explain how nurses can transform recovery care and rehabilitation after a brain injury, and describe how your approach could be implemented.
Emilia and Jenny Clarke joined Nursing Now on Wednesday 22nd July, 3pm UK BST for a live webinar to reveal more details about the challenge. You can watch the webinar here.
The Global Solutions Initiative provides the opportunity to connect with nurses around the world to share ideas for nurse-led innovations to resolve global health issues. Your innovations could make a major difference in the recovery pathway for brain injury and stroke survivors.
Innovation can mean a purposeful change – change to realise clearly defined benefits to the brain injury patients. It does not have to be brand new but must be new within the brain injury recovery field. It can be about the design and development of a new service, or modification or redesign to an existing service.
This challenge will run for two months. At the end of that time, along with a panel of experts, SameYou will look at outcome solutions submitted from nurses globally and choose a winning solution. The creator/s of the winning solution will be invited to discuss their ideas in more detail with Emilia Clarke on a live webinar with Nursing Now.
