It will be live until April 12th.  So far, nearly 300 survivors across the country have completed it. The survey can be accessed on forms a critical part of RCNI’s new comprehensive programme of work called Counselling Survivors in an On & Offline World aimed at ensuring that there is standardised and specialist counselling for survivors of sexual violence and harassment fit for a post-pandemic world in Ireland. RCNI believes that remote trauma counselling is here to stay as part of a new hybrid model of on and off-line clinical support for survivors.The survey comes at a poignant moment in time also with the focus on the safety of women and girls following the murder of Sarah Everard in London.“The survivors’ survey we are launching this week is central to our understanding of how counselling is working, or not working, for them, particularly over this past tumultuous year,” said Dr Michelle Walshe, who is the RCNI Clinical Programme Lead on the global leading project.“We are asking survivors and people who are supporting them to fill out our easy to use survey. It will take less than 10 minutes, yet those 10 minutes will feed into the development of training that can ensure that counselling in this country is completely fit for purpose for the new hybrid world we are entering into,” she continued“It also means that survivors will have real choice in how they want to receive counselling in the future. As our survey to date has shown, there are huge advantages to on-line counselling, but there are things we have to address and know more about to be certain that it is working.”The survivors’ survey follows a major survey of over 750 counsellors and psychotherapists throughout Ireland, and with the collaboration of all the main organisations providing counselling and training.It found that 79% of respondents said that it was important to have specialism in sexual violence. However, less than half said that their knowledge of misogyny and gender roles was good, indicating a gap between understanding of root causes of sexual violence and the desire for specialism and standardisation in training.The programme emerged from the experience of the initial Covid-19 lockdown a year ago when Rape Crisis Centres like the one in Limerick had to be evacuated and when trauma counselling services had to move on-line, almost overnight.The initiative is supported by Rethink Ireland, through the Innovate Together Fund, a collaboration between Rethink Ireland the Department of Rural and Community Development. The Fund supports charities’ innovative responses to the Covid-19 crisis that will provide lasting change.The survey is available here.

Nurses urged to cut risk of sharps injuriesOn 1 Jul 2001 in Personnel Today Occupational health nurses are being urged to assess their workplaces to seewhat they can do to help reduce the risks of suffering sharps or needlestickinjuries. The Royal College of Nursing has launched a safety awareness campaign toprevent sharps injuries in the workplace. A pilot study by the college in the 14 sites in England, Wales and Scotlandhas shown that in the six months from July last year, there were 455 sharpsincidents, of which 40 per cent happened to nurses. Launching the “Be safe, be sharp” campaign, RCN senior employmentrelations adviser Sheelagh Brewer said, “A sharps injury is not just aboutneedles. A sharp can be anything from a syringe, scalpel or broken glass to afragment of bone or a patient’s tooth.” The college has produced a campaign pack filled with information on how toavoid injuries. This includes a “pocket action card” telling nursesexactly what to do and who to tell if they are injured.

first_imgEuropean chilled convenience food group Uniq has announced increased losses for the six months to 30 June 2009, despite comments from the firm that it is progressing well.The supplier of sandwiches to Marks & Spencer (M&S) reported a pre-tax loss of £12.8m compared to £2.6m for the comparable period last year. Revenue from continuing operations stood at £141.1m, down from £143.4m in 2008.The firm Uniq is currently in the process of restructuring the company. In March this year, it set out a plan to transform the group in 2009 by returning its UK arm to profitability and either to exit or find joint venture partners for its Continental business. It recently won an extra £15m per annum of sandwich business with M&S, which it said would start to contribute to the figures in the second half of the year.Chief executive Geoff Eaton commented: “We set ourselves a challenging agenda for 2009 and I am very pleased with our progress.“I believe we are on track to complete the transformation of the group to a UK-focused business by the end of the year, and remain confident that we can deliver results in line with our expectations,” added Eaton.Among its highlights, Uniq said, was the agreed €73m (£61.8m) sale of its French business, which forms part of its plan to focus on its UK arm.In the trading statement, the company said consumer trading had been down across the board in 2008. However, it has brought its UK business near to break-even point, having reduced the decline in sales from 4.2% in the second half of 2008 to 1.6% in the first half of 2009; it reduced the level of loss by £1.3m to £0.5m.last_img read more

first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Spence At the age of just 26, John was named CEO of an international Rockefeller foundation, overseeing projects in 20 countries and reporting directly to the Chairman of the Board, Winthrop … Web: Details I think best practices are often useless. I think benchmarking is really stupid. Actually, I think they’re both really stupid and useless … if they are done improperly. Many companies examine alleged best practices in an attempt to simply replicate the exact same processes and practices within their organization – even though the practices might be from a completely different industry and have little or nothing to do with how the other companies actually do business.On the other hand, I think it’s absolutely brilliant to study best practices and then determine specifically what ideas you can adapt, change, modify and then apply to get seriously positive results in your organization. I also think looking at best practices from other industries is essential because it gives you access to something called “the adjacent new.” That’s when you take a brand-new idea you have never seen before, introduce it to an idea you’re already familiar with – and hope the two of them get along and eventually have offspring: a brilliant new idea that did not exist before. That’s originality born out of creativity – that’s where strategic insight comes from.In anticipation of seeing many of you at NAFCU’s CEOs and Senior Executives Conference in Key West, Fla., this April, I sent out a survey to ask what prospective attendees would like me to cover during my session. The answer came back loud and clear: a “master class” on best practices. I’m going to assume you all would rather hear about the useful best practices than the stupid ones …So here’s my plan: I’m going to show you some of the newest ideas on strategy, innovation, competitive differentiation, member service, employee engagement and more. I am also going to reiterate some of the key fundamental ideas that have been around for decades and are still absolutely critical in running a successful organization. Then I’m going to challenge you to look at all of these ideas from multiple angles and figure out how to change them so they will work well for you and your credit union.Lastly, I’m going to do everything I can to encourage conference attendees to do much more networking than they typically do. That’s a lesson I’d like credit union executives to remember whether they’re at conferences or anywhere else. It is the single most important thing I’ve ever learned in my life: You become what you focus on, and you become similar to the people you surround yourself with. One of the keys to success is creating a huge network of bright, sharp, smart and talented people who are interested in your success – then go to them often and ask for help. There is no better place for a credit union executive to build a powerful and helpful network than at a conference like this, and I’m going to give folks lots of thought-provoking and challenging ideas to discuss and explore together.So if you have not yet made plans to join us in Key West, I strongly encourage you to do so – it’s going to be a wonderful event, with lots of great information and ideas and plenty of very talented and friendly people to connect with. I look forward to seeing you in April!last_img read more
