BAME AWARD 2020

Our BAME Award 2020 winner was Le'Asha Gabriel-Richards, Senior Staff nurse, Critical Care Unit, Manchester Royal Infirmary, Manchester Foundation NHS Trust: Skin care and Hair maintenance in BAME community within the critical care unit.

Le’Asha’s project was chosen as it focuses on an important and fundamental nursing care issue. Her project will evaluate the impact of teaching nurses how to care for critically ill BAME patients’ skin and hair. Le’Asha has agreed to work with the BACCN to record an Espresso teaching session that will be shared with all BACCN members. Well done Le’Asha! We look forward to seeing you in Belfast next year and hearing your experience.
