Mental Health Awareness Week 2019

Admin No Comments
Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 - Body Image

This week, between 13th and 19th May, is Mental Health Awareness Week 2019.

Now in its 18th year, Mental Health Awareness Week have previously focused on how mindfulness, anxiety, sleep deprivation, exercise and Stress can impact our mental health. The theme for this year’s campaign is ‘Body Image’ – how we think and feel about our bodies.

Last year the Mental Health Foundation found that 30% of all adults have felt so stressed by body image and appearance that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope; that’s almost 1 in every 3 people.

Body image issues can affect all of us at any age and directly impact our mental health; however there is still a lack of much-needed research and understanding around this.

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, the Mental Health Foundation will be publishing the results of a UK-wide survey on body image and mental health. It will look at body image issues across a lifetime, including how it affects children and young people, adults and people in later life.

It will also seek to highlight how people can experience body image issues differently, including people of different ages, genders, ethnicities and sexualities; see below:

Body Image Research Report 2019

Below is a spoken word poem written and performed by Priscila Hernandez for Mental Health Awareness Week 2019.

You can show your support by on social media by posting a picture of a time or a place when you felt comfortable in your own skin – this could be now, five years ago or at the age of five. It can be a photo of yourself or something else that reminds you of the moment.

Use the hashtags #BeBodyKind and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek; tag @mentalhealthfoundation on Instagram and Facebook or @mentalhealth on Twitter.

New Lone Working Module Launched

Admin No Comments
Lone Working

Blue Stream Academy Ltd. are pleased to announce the release of our new ‘Lone Working’ module. This module will be added to our GP, Dental, Hospice, Nursing and Care Home and Urgent Care eLearning suites.

Lone workers are those who work by themselves without close or direct supervision in any environment where there are no other workers.

Lone workers can be vulnerable and at increased risk of physical or verbal abuse and harassment, accidents, theft, manual handling incidents etc. simply because they don’t have the immediate support of colleagues or security staff.

It is therefore important that staff members understand how they can keep themselves safe whilst working alone on site, off site, after hours or whilst travelling.

Employers should also be aware of their responsibilities for their employees and must ensure that policies, procedures and risk assessments are implemented to ensure staff members are safe whilst working alone.

Our ‘Lone Working’ module covers topics including:

  • what a lone worker is
  • employer’s and employees’ responsibilities
  • the hazards and risks associated with lone working
  • the use of risks assessments
  • how to stay safe whilst working alone
  • the procedures to take in an emergency.

Cytology Module Updated and Renamed as Cervical Screening

Admin No Comments
Cervical Screening

Our ‘Cytology’ module has now been updated and renamed as ‘Cervical Screening’.

These updates were essential to ensure that our training is in line with the recent updates to the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.

The NHS Cervical Screening Programme is used to check whether women have any abnormal cervical cell changes that could develop into cervical cancer, by testing a sample of cells (cytology) that are taken from the cervix.

In recent years, controlled trials have considered the use of hrHPV (high risk human papillomavirus) testing as a primary screening test. Compared with cytology, HPV testing has been shown to reduce the risk of developing cervical cancer through increased sensitivity for underlying disease.

In 2016 it was announced that HPV primary screening will be implemented into the NHS Cervical Screening Programme, with full geographical coverage achieved across the whole of England by 2020.

As the information within this module has significantly changed, we recommend that users retake this training to ensure they are up to date with the new guidelines.

For more information on how this can be accessed, email us on info@bluestreamacademy.com, or speak to a member of the team on 01773 822549.

Admin No Comments
Pressure Ulcers

Blue Stream Academy Ltd. are pleased to announce the release of two brand new modules, Pressure Ulcer Management and Pressure Ulcer Awareness; these modules will be added to our GP, Nursing and Care Home, Hospice and Urgent Care eLearning suites.

The development of a pressure ulcer can be painful and debilitating, which can have a major impact on an individual’s overall wellbeing.

The development of many pressure ulcers can be avoided by putting preventative steps in place. However, in some cases, it is not always possible to prevent a pressure ulcer from developing and staff need to be aware of how they can be treated and managed, to ensure the best quality of patient care possible.

These modules provide staff with guidance on how pressure ulcers can be prevented, managed and treated, in the hope that the number of individuals who develop a pressure ulcer is reduced.

Our Pressure Ulcer Management module covers topics including:

  • How pressure ulcers are caused and how they develop.
  • How to categorise a pressure ulcer.
  • How to differentiate a pressure ulcer from other types of skin damage.
  • How to prevent pressure ulcers from developing.
  • How to treat and manage pressure ulcers.

Our Pressure Ulcer Awareness module covers topics including:

  • What pressure ulcers are and how they are caused.
  • How to categorise a pressure ulcer.
  • How to differentiate a pressure ulcer from other types of skin damage.
