BACCN Ethnic Minority Funding Award

BACCN ETHNIC MINORITY FUNDING CALL 2021: Invitation for critical care professionals from an ethnic minority to apply for funding for a work project

As part of our on-going commitment to support all our critical care workforce, the BACCN would like to invite critical care health care professionals from an ethnic minority background for an award of up to £2000 to support a work project relating to an ethnic minority issue in critical care. This call is for BACCN members and non-members, working in UK. Successful applicants will receive one year’s free membership to the BACCN.

The project may be a research, service evaluation, quality improvement project or an audit relating to a ethnic minority issue in critical care in the UK. The project may focus on patients, their families, staff, or other organisational issues. The project must align with the mission of the BACCN. Applications will be anonymously evaluated against the mission statement and the feasibility and quality of the project proposal. 

Please find details of how to apply HERE

Deadline has been extended to 17:00 (BST) 27th August 2021.

Our 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 an ethnic minority 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 ethnic minority patients’ skin and hair. See Le’Asha's teaching session above. Well done Le’Asha!
