It's been fantastic to watch from afar the beginning of this community but at the same time it is clear that there is much work to be done around the nurse- patient relationship both in real life on on social media. There was recently a Twitter thread that highlighted some concerns:

I too felt unwelcome in majority of NHS related Tweet Chats (with exception of the WeCommunity run by @AgencyNurse @NRCUK + very few others). Sure they occasionally pacify you but v.little proper engagement#TeamPatient is for all of us who are fed up with feeling like outsiders pic.twitter.com/OlzVpHNvzY— @NusratMedicine 🎥 (@NusratMedicine) November 2, 2019
Yes the #NHSColdShoulder is definitely a ‘thing’, difficult to reconcile with kind, compassionate, caring healthcare.— ??Celebrating Adam?? (@4AdsthePoet) November 4, 2019
Perhaps we should schedule a Wenurses tweetchat on working well together .. what works and what doesn't ?? I have some space in early december if you guys were up for it ??— Teresa Chinn MBE RN 💜 (@AgencyNurse) November 4, 2019
With this in mind this #WeNurses tweetchat aims to explore the nurse - patient relationship and how we can work well together, some of the questions we will be asking are:
- What does nurses and patients working together currently look like ? Both in real life and social media
- What does "good" look like in terms of working together with the people we care for?
- How can we best support/facilitate frontline staff and patients to work together to find common solutions to common problems?
- Once solution worked out how do we support them both to change policy?
- Does social media have a role to play in patients and nurses working together?
- What one thing would you change that would make nurses and patients working together a positive and productive experience?
Everyone is welcome to this tweetchat - nurses, patients, family members, other healthcare professionals ... everyone adds value.
