Award success for nursing and midwifery educators

Tom McEwan, Principal Educator (3rd row, 1st image) and Joanna Greenock, Practice Educator (3rd row, 7th image) received recognition at the British Association for Perinatal Medicine (BAPM) Gopi Menon Awards 2022, at their annual conference held 15 - 16 September 2022.

Tom and Joanna were part of a team who were joint winners in the ‘Outstanding team’ awards category. They contributed to the development of a neonatal transitional care education resource with colleagues from the East of England operational development network and national collaborative group.

This built upon work that Joanna had developed in her previous role as practice development midwife in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to which Tom also contributed. The hope is that this resource might form the basis of a UK wide programme for neonatal transitional care- an important level of neonatal care that closely involves parents and caregivers.

The 2022 BAPM conference programme explored subjects ranging from the use of probiotics on preterm babies and the challenges in providing long-term compassionate care.

Tom McEwan said
“We are delighted to see this work recognised at this prestigious event. Although it originated in Scotland we were delighted to share this with colleagues in England and see it transformed further into a learning package that will improve the care and outcomes for of babies within neonatal transitional care.”
