Meet the Care Makers: Amanda Bain, student nurse at Teesside University


24 / 7 / 2013 1.32pm

Amanda became a Care Maker in November 2012 and is a third year student nurse at Teesside University.

“I had the amazing privilege of becoming a Care Maker in November last year and I was invited to London for a Care Makers event in March 2013 which coincided with the London Innovation Event and Change Day.

“Since then I have embraced my role as a Care Maker, promoting the 6C’s in nursing. I have done this by sharing my experience with my school of nursing at Teesside University and I have given a presentation about my experiences delivering outstanding care to each cohort, encouraging others to be passionate about the 6C’s.

“I use twitter to keep in touch with my new Care Maker family, where we share ideas and experiences. Using social media and the new website also helps me keep up to date with current events and get involved with what’s going on in the Care Maker world. Recently I have been out to events in the North East where my fellow Care Makers have gathered with the same passion and commitment to change practice.

“In June 2013 I attended the Public Health Conference in London and had the pleasure of meeting many health care officials to share my student nurse and front line of care experiences with. I have also been invited to speak to several staff team members on my clinical placement settings about my role where I have been welcomed enthusiastically.

“In my work with patients and staff I always keep in mind that, every contact counts. I aim to continue making a difference and encouraging and inspiring others to do the same and deliver excellence in care.”
