World Cancer Day 2017

Today is World Cancer Day, a global event that unites the world’s population in the fight against cancer.

The aim is to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease, pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action. World Cancer Day is the ideal opportunity to spread the word and raise the profile of cancer in people’s minds and in the world’s media

World Cancer Day was established by the Paris Charter adopted at the World Summit Against Cancer for the New Millenium in Paris on 4th February, 2000. This Charter aimed at the promotion of the research for curing as well as preventing the disease, upgrading the provided services to the patients, the sensitisation of the common opinion and the mobilisation of the global community against cancer.

The theme ‘We can. I can.’ applies to World Cancer Day campaigns between 2016-2018 and will explore how everyone, as a collective or as individuals, can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer. To view the key messages of this campaign, please click here: World Cancer Day 2016-2018 Key Messages

Just as cancer affects everyone in different ways, all people have the power to take various actions to reduce the impact that cancer has on individuals, families and communities.

Below is an infographic detailing the impact which cancer has:

Whether you do something as large as running your own World Cancer Day campaign, or as simple as sharing posts via social media, every action has an impact. Show the world that we can, I can …get involved in the fight against cancer!

Time to Talk Day 2017

Time to Talk Day 2017 Logo

Today is Time to Talk Day 2017! The aim of which is to bring the country together to get talking and break the silence surrounding mental health problems.

Time to Talk Day first began in 2014 and has instigated millions of conversations in schools, homes, workplaces, in the media and online. People have felt able to share their experiences without shame for the first time, and have started supporting those around them. After that first conversation, people feel more comfortable talking about mental health and more likely to talk about it again; that one chat can have a huge impact.

Mental health problems affect one in four of us yet people are still afraid to talk about it. For people with mental health problems not being able to talk about it can be one of the worst parts of the illness. So by getting people talking about mental health we can break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects us all.

There are lots of myths about mental health. Knowing a few facts can help us to challenge any negative thoughts and actions.

Here are some to think about…

Myth: Mental health problems are very rare.
Fact: 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year.

Myth: People with mental illness aren’t able to work.
Fact: We probably all work with someone experiencing a mental health problem.

Myth: Young people just go through ups and downs as part of puberty, it’s nothing.
Fact: 1 in 10 young people will experience a mental health problem.

Myth: People with mental health illnesses are usually violent and unpredictable.
Fact: People with a mental illness are more likely to be a victim of violence.

Myth: People with mental health problems don’t experience discrimination
Fact: 9 out of 10 people with mental health problems experience stigma and discrimination.

Myth: It’s easy for young people to talk to friends about their feelings.
Fact: Nearly three in four young people fear the reactions of friends when they talk about their mental health problems.

Young Carers Awareness Day 2017

Young Carers Awareness Day 2017

Today is Young Carers Awareness Day 2017, a day of recognition for the 700,000 young carers in the UK; this year the theme is ‘When I grow up’ and it’s all about helping young carers to achieve their dream jobs or career.

A new survey by Carers Trust has revealed that young carers across the UK are struggling to get the most out of their education and are in danger of not fulfilling their ambitions due to their caring role.

Over 700,000 young carers across the UK are caring for their sick or disabled mum, dad, brother or sister and this is having a significant impact upon their lives. Most care for a parent or other close family member, day in, day out, and shockingly, at least 13,000 young carers are providing care for over 50 hours a week on top of their studies.

Of the young adult carers surveyed over half (53%) were having problems in coping with schoolwork with nearly 60% struggling to meet deadlines. A startling number (73%) said that they have to take time out of school or learning specifically to care for a family member; whilst a third admitted that they have to skip school most weeks. With 82% of young adult carers also reporting stress, a worrying picture is emerging, revealing the extent to which their caring role is severely affecting their future choices.

Below is an infographic detailing more facts about the difficulties young carers face:

Young Carers Awareness Day 2017 Infographic

Gail Scott-Spicer, Chief Executive of Carers Trust, said:

“Our new survey data paints a very worrying picture for the hundreds of thousands of young carers across the UK, if the right support and guidance isn’t in place. Being a young carer should not mean that a child’s future hopes, dreams, and ambitions are shattered.

“We know young carers miss or cut short on average 10 weeks of school a year as a direct result of their caring role, and those aged between 16 and 18 years are twice as likely to be not in education, employment or training (NEET). We must make sure young carers get the support they need so they can enjoy their childhoods like any other young person and achieve their ambitions.”

“On Young Carers Awareness Day, Carers Trust wants to reach hidden young carers up and down the UK, who desperately need our help.”

Below is a short film that was made by members of Young Carers Voice in partnership with Boomsatsumato which aims to raise awareness of young carers; their aspirations, how being a young carer helps or hinders reaching their goals and how support can enable them to achieve their goals.

Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2017 – Smear For Smear

Admin No Comments
Cervical Cancer Awareness Day 2017

Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2017, a campaign organised by Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, takes place from 22nd-28th January.

Cervical cancer is the most common cancer amongst women 35 and under; each day, nine women are diagnosed and three lose their lives from the disease.

Cervical screening (smear test) is one the best ways a woman can reduce her risk of cervical cancer, preventing 75%. It’s free on the NHS and yet in the UK, one out of five women do not attend their cervical screening (almost half a million young women aged 25-29 didn’t attend last year), so raising public awareness of ways to prevent cervical cancer really is important.

With cervical screening attendance falling for younger and older women it is even more important to keep finding opportunities to raise awareness among different ages and groups of women.

This year’s campaign is entitled #SmearForSmear and the message is simple – attend your smear, reduce your risk of cervical cancer.

The image below details how to get involved with the #SmearForSmear viral campaign on social media:

World AIDS Day 2016

Today is World AIDS Day, a global awareness campaign dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection and mourning those who have died of the disease which has been running annually since 1988.

Over 100,000 people are living with HIV in the UK. Globally there are an estimated 34 million people who have the virus. Despite the virus only being identified in 1984, more than 35 million people have died of HIV or AIDS, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history.

Today, scientific advances have been made in HIV treatment, there are laws to protect people living with HIV and we understand so much more about the condition. Despite this, each year in the UK around 6,000 people are diagnosed with HIV, people do not know the facts about how to protect themselves and others, and stigma and discrimination remain a reality for many people living with the condition.

Below are some other alarming facts about HIV and AIDS:

World Diabetes Day 2016

World Diabetes Day 2016

Today is World Diabetes Day, a global awareness campaign launched in 1991 by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), focusing on diabetes.

In the UK diabetes leads to 65 early deaths every single day, it can cause blindness and kidney disease. Every week there are 1400 cases of heart failure, 540 strokes and 140 lower limb amputations as a result of diabetes.

Each year World Diabetes Day focuses on a theme, with past subjects including diabetes and human rights, diabetes and lifestyle, diabetes and obesity, diabetes in the disadvantaged and the vulnerable, and diabetes in children and adolescents. This year the theme is ‘Eyes on Diabetes’ which aims to promote the importance of screening to ensure early diagnosis of type 2 diabetes and treatment to reduce the risk of serious complications.

IDF has estimated that globally as many as 193 million people, or close to half of all adults living with diabetes in 2015, were unaware of their disease. Most of these cases are type 2 diabetes. The earlier a person is diagnosed, the earlier treatment can be initiated in order to reduce the risk of harmful and costly complications.

A person with type 2 diabetes can live for several years without showing any symptoms, during which time high blood glucose is silently damaging the body.

There is therefore an urgent need to screen, diagnose and provide appropriate treatment to people with diabetes. WDD 2016 will highlight the feasible and cost-effective solutions that exist to help identify people with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes and those at risk of developing it in the future.

Below is an infographic highlighting some of the surprising statistic about diabetes:

Remembrance Day 2016

In Flanders Field

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Palliative and End of Life Care: Supporting Patient Choice Conference

Blue Stream Academy will be sponsoring and attending the ‘Palliative and End of Life Care: Supporting Patient Choice’ conference at the Royal National Hotel in London on Thursday 26th October, 2016.

Approximately half a million people die every year in the UK. Three-quarters of these deaths are not sudden but are expected, requiring specialist care and treatment during the final days, in accordance with the wishes of patients and their families. An independent report has rated the quality of end of life care in the UK as one of the best in the world, however, as the ageing population continues to grow so does the number of people experiencing ‘drawn out deaths’. Improvements have been made in all areas of end of life and palliative care, however, to stay at the forefront of provision more needs to be done.

The Palliative & End of Life Care: Supporting Patient Choice conference will examine how the delivery of care in the UK is evolving to support and fulfil need requirements, whilst respecting the choices expressed by patients and their families. It offers the thoughts of highly knowledgeable speakers, sharing both professional and personal experiences. It is ideally placed to update delegates on the latest findings from research conducted to give an accurate picture of the experiences of patients nearing the end of their lives and their families. The day will look to how future care can be improved for all and share some of the excellent examples of good practice.

The event will feature a highly informative agenda, presenting speakers who are experts in their field, plus examples of best practice which delegates may feel appropriate to adopt into their own provision arrangements. Delegates will have the opportunity to question, discuss and debate the very latest policies, projects and emerging models of care, as well as share their own stories and experiences with the conference and contributing to wider thinking about end of life care.

Benefits of Attending

  • Hear what improvements have been undertaken to improve care.
  • Learn about the areas that remain below an acceptable standard and what needs to be done to address them.
  • Gain insight into caring for a dying person.
  • How can we ensure those with learning disabilities have access to the same level of provision to the rest of the population?
  • Hear about forward-thinking practices in end of life care.
  • What can be done to help children, young people and their families in dealing with a terminal or life limiting illness?
  • How will the NICE guidelines improve the experiences of those nearing the end of their life?
  • What difference will Emergency Care and Treatment Plans make in the decision-making process to resuscitate?
  • Share best practice.
  • Benefit from the opportunity to question, discuss and debate current working practices and those for the future.
  • Take advantage of knowledge sharing and professional networking.
  • Gain CPD credits.

Join Us At The Accident And Emergency Summit And Exhibition 2016: The Future Of Urgent And Emergency Care

Admin No Comments

Blue Stream Academy will be attending the The Accident and Emergency Summit and Exhibition 2016 at Adelphi House in Salford, Manchester on Tuesday 18th October, 2016.

The Accident and Emergency Summit and Exhibition – The Future of Urgent and Emergency Care offers exclusive insights from policy makers and experts on the following topics:

  • Services – What approach can hospitals take to protecting standards of service despite austerity, staffing shortages and increased pressure?
  • Staffing – How can A&E departments meet the challenge of maintaining safe staffing levels in the midst of staff shortages and a clampdown on agency worker spending?
  • Funding – What impact have austerity measures had on the challenges facing A&E departments, and what can be done to mitigate these effects?

Join us for a unique opportunity to attend presentations by leading decision makers, quiz experts in keynote discussion panels, find solutions from best practice case studies, and network with other health professionals.

Why Attend?

  • Discover innovative new strategies for maintaining service standards whilst facing the combination of challenges facing emergency care.
  • Come and explore the exhibition, where leading suppliers of healthcare technology designed for emergency care will showcase exciting and innovative products. Enjoy the opportunity to see new technology in action, learn how it can improve outcomes, and forge lasting business partnerships.
  • Connect with over 200 high quality delegates involved in emergency care, problem solve shared challenges with other professionals and learn from the experiences of others.
  • Attend a variety of topical seminars, engaging interactive activities, and keynote panel discussions with experts in emergency care.
  • Quiz experts from across a variety of disciplines to gain exclusive insights into pioneering approaches to care and the latest research.

Discussion Points

The Accident and Emergency Conference boasts a variety of outstanding speakers from across public, private and charity sectors. Each one has been handpicked based on their expertise and achievements, ensuring that delegates enjoy only the highest quality presentations. A wide number of topics will be covered on the day, and delegates can expect speakers to discuss challenges, successes and case studies around the interest areas below:

  • The crisis in A&E is partly attributable to the increased pressure of rising attendance, which has jumped from 16.5 million in 2003/4 to 22.3 million in 2014/15.
  • Waiting time targets are not being met, with more than 100,000 patients having to wait 12 hours or more for treatment in 2015. In November of that year, just 87.1% were seen inside the four hour target, well below the 95% requirement.
  • Research conducted by NICE in 2015 found that A&E departments were short staffed almost half of the time. The NHS has attempted to tackle this issue by using agency workers to fill the gaps, spending £3.3 billion on this in 2014.
  • Health Minister Jeremy Hunt has cracked down on agency staff spending, setting a maximum hourly rate and capping the amount the NHS can spend on this resource.
  • Austerity measures mean many A&E departments are being closed or merged with other hospitals, putting additional strain on remaining services and prompting public outcry.

Who should attend?

Directors of Operations and Transformation, Chief Executives, Heads of Emergency Care, Directors of Nursing, Operations and Emergency Services Directors, Urgent Care Leads, Chief Medical Officers, Clinical Managers, Consultants, Directors of Service Delivery, General Managers and Lead Nurses. The forum is open to NHS Trusts and hospitals, CCGs, commissioning support units, ambulance services, community health organisations and the private and voluntary sector.
