Our School welcomed an international School Nurse visiting from Sweden. Professor Jean Rankin and Dr Ruth Astbury welcome Charlotta Fredheim to UWS.
Charlotta is a practicing qualified School Nurse from Malmo Sweden who is currently supporting 10 Erasmus students from her high school who have recently completed six weeks of work experience in Glasgow.
Charlotta also met School Nursing Practice Teachers and Vikki Murphy, a UWS PgDip Specialist Community Public Health Nursing graduate who is a School Nurse in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde where they compared and contrasted recent evidence-based developments in School Nursing. It is clear that supporting the mental health and well-being of children and young people is a key priority in both countries.
