@WeStudentNurse Hello, I'm Georgie ?? I'm here to learn/discuss because there are always little lifestyle changes that can make a big difference! ?? ?? #WeStNs https://t.co/SBE8HaTuam
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:08
@WeStudentNurse Pollution contributes to ill health. Through changes in climate which promote different bacteria and viruses. Through the way we infringe on the natural world making it more likely that things will cross over. Through living in crowded, unsanitary conditions. #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:08
@lucy_uo And the health care beyond that, right out to contractors etc. Logistics, laundry and lunches all have a carbon footprint #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:08
@nikkilouh Great! We hope you learn something. #WeStNs
@uoldancingnurse

@WeStudentNurse Increase in temperature related illness and death for one! Climate change affects so many aspects of our health ?? #WeStNs

@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:11
@WeStudentNurse Air pollutants which effect our lungs and hearts especially. Creating dirty water which can contain communicable illness. Killing plants and wildlife which sustain us (think of the bees and the importance of them for pollination). Harmful waste which could be picked up #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:11
@WeStudentNurse I could probably keep going...#WeStNs

@WeStudentNurse Climate change impacts on wider determinants clean air, food, water, shelter and security, and infrastructure, challenging our global health system #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:12
@lucy_uo You could- it's a very large area of public health #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:13
some examples of health impacts by climate change #WeStNs https://twitter.com/SamSwabyPUNC/status/1306309994267250688
@StNurseLee
16 September 2020 20:13
@WeStudentNurse Products such as disposable facemask are not recyclable and will end up in land fill. there is a potential they can carry unwanted things on them. #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:13
@WeStudentNurse Yes, not just the NHS as in the caring side! #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse

2) What opportunities do health care professionals & students have to have influence/ impact in the climate movement? #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@HermosuraJhing
16 September 2020 20:16
The impacts of climate change include warming temperatures, changes in precipitation and rising sea levels. These impacts threaten our health by affecting the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the weather we experience. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener https://twitter.com/WeStudentNurse/status/1306308119299907585
@Rachel_A_
16 September 2020 20:16
@WeStudentNurse Many direct and indirect ways. Directly such as air quality being a driver for lung issues exacerbation. Indirectly such as security from natural disasters #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:16
@StNurseLee @WeStudentNurse I've talked about the number of aprons when you have a barriered patient before on placement. Even if that was recyclable it would have to go in clinical waste. Maybe reusable would be better? #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:17
Is anyone else concerned about single PPE litter? (Note: it must be used when stipulated) #WeStNs https://twitter.com/StNurseLee/status/1306310352670461952

@SamSwabyPUNC
16 September 2020 20:19
@WeStudentNurse Health literacy, health education through making every contact count - there are chance to promote behaviour change, through be armed with the knowledge and understanding of what can make a difference #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:19
Who has a green society at uni? #WeStNs https://twitter.com/nikkilouh/status/1306311273903280131
@nikkilouh
16 September 2020 20:19
@WeStudentNurse Yes It is shame there are no bins in public places where these could be disposed of at least in a more sanatised way. #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:19
@WeStudentNurse We can try and make a difference in our personal lives. In hospotals we should be asking do I need to do this? I was on a placement once when a patient was moved on a slide sheet and everyone wore gloves...they didn't even touch the patient! #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:20
@SamSwabyPUNC This answer though ???? #WeStNs
@StnKirstin
16 September 2020 20:20
@WeStudentNurse The rise in temperatures means that plants produce more pollen for longer periods which increases the length of allergy season, increased concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere can make plants grow more and cause more grass pollen which can cause allergies. #WeStNS
@uoldancingnurse
16 September 2020 20:20
@WeStudentNurse Taking part or organising ‘green initiatives’ with your SU, for HCPs doing research into greener or more sustainable forms of treat,ent when appropriate #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:21
Could you incorporate greener behaviours into brief interventions? #WeStNs https://twitter.com/SamSwabyPUNC/status/1306311651982020614
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:21
@WeStudentNurse I think for some it's seen as a 'just in case' when really you don't need it, we need an attitude change there, but maybe by asking you start a thought pattern #WeStNs
@nikkilouh
16 September 2020 20:22
@lucy_uo @WeStudentNurse I agree I have seen HCP wear gloves to make beds and things . I can understand when you are cleaning beds etc but not making a bed. #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:23
@uoldancingnurse Are you part of any? #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:23
@WeStudentNurse Yes. I think sometimes it's used when it really isn't needed. #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:23
@SamSwabyPUNC Thumb on fire here . It's a matter of time before an embarrassing typo occurs #WeStNs
@StnKirstin
16 September 2020 20:24
@WeStudentNurse Recycle in your personal life and at work/placement. My university now does a car share scheme during placement to stop single person car usage, you can car share with someone who lives near by and who starts at the same time as you. #WeStNs

16 September 2020 20:25
@WeStudentNurse My Uni has more than just one! And other societies are given incentives such as grants to be more sustainable and host environmentally friendly activities #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:26
@StnKirstin Reduce > reuse > recycle. Have you heard that catch phrase before? #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:26
@nikkilouh @WeStudentNurse Same. I don't tend to wear gloves when cleaning the beds either, unless it is obviously soiled, but those wipes can be nasty for your hands (should we even be using wipes...would a cloth and spray be better?) #WeStNs
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:27
@WeStudentNurse 3) Seek out opportunities for reducing or improving work-related travel through increased use of online meetings, active transport (walking and cycling) and carpooling. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:27
@WeStudentNurse 5) Embed social prescribing and health promotion principles into your nursing practice, such as using outdoor spaces, physical activity, music, art or similar interventions which promote health with no or minimal consumables where possible. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:27
@NursingTimes now has a declared green section?? Here's some things to get started with #WeStNs https://twitter.com/HeatherBaid/status/1306313056507645954
@StnKirstin
16 September 2020 20:27
@WeStudentNurse Yes, it is very concerning. It's scary seeing the amount of masks and gloves in car parks at the shops etc. Also sad seeing how many animals are getting injured with the straps on the masks. #WeStNs
@SamSwabyPUNC
16 September 2020 20:28
@WeStudentNurse Here in Plymouth Active travel is being heavily invested in. With street canvassing and event promotions. Schools for example encouraging the walking bus, ride your bike to school days, walk for a week etc also providing bikability to promote cycling safety. #WeStNs
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:28
@WeStudentNurse 6) Use a ‘green lens’ to consider environmental sustainability when local protocols, policies and clinical guidelines are updated or when working on student assignments. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@StnKirstin
16 September 2020 20:28
@WeStudentNurse Yes! I have actually! #WeStNs
@SamSwabyPUNC
16 September 2020 20:28
@WeStudentNurse Active travel, improves health - reduces pollution #WeStNs
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:29
@WeStudentNurse 7) For nurses caring for patients with respiratory disease, use guidance on reducing the carbon footprint of inhalers from the NICE patient decision aid and the British Thoracic Society’s Position Environment and Lunch Health Position Statement. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:29

3)Is an organisation such as the NHS ideal to pioneer and showcase climate action? #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@HermosuraJhing
16 September 2020 20:30
@WeStudentNurse Nurses can encourage their practice sites to use safer energy sources. Educating people about how little things can make a huge difference. For example, reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:30
@WeStudentNurse 8)Join the Green Nurse Network from @SusHealthcare - free online site for shared resources and practices. CSH also have green ward competition and their SusQI framework can be used is useful for quality improvement projects and assignments #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@uoldancingnurse
16 September 2020 20:31
@WeStudentNurse I’m part of a society called plan it change which helps push for sustainable changes on campus, I also help out on a local allotment but not sure how green that is ?? #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:31
Recycling schemes such as drugs pack plastic could certain help https://www.terracycle.com/en-GB/brigades/medicine-packet-uk #WeStNs https://twitter.com/StNurseLee/status/1306313142058844161

@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:32
@WeStudentNurse 9) Seek out case study examples and guidance from other sustainable healthcare organisations, such as @CareWithoutCO2 and @HCWHeurope #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:32
@WeStudentNurse 10) Use social media and online conferences to learn from other nurses and celebrate your own successes with environmental sustainability to share ideas and knowledge about what works and does not work for green nursing. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:33
@WeStudentNurse I thought they already were recyclable. Been putting them in the household recycling for years ?? #WeStNs
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:33
@WeStudentNurse 11) Explore links and co-benefits between ecologically friendly nursing with financial savings and social responsibility. Use this ‘triple-bottom-line’ approach while communicating to others about ethically sound, responsible and sustainable healthcare. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:33
Cutting straps of masks before disposing is a good idea incase the mask ends up somewhere it shouldn't #WeStNs https://twitter.com/StnKirstin/status/1306313903543144448
@SamSwabyPUNC
16 September 2020 20:33
@WeStudentNurse I think for many many years it's been misunderstood, the argument of climate change being caused by natural or anthropogenic activities has been the focus for too long. #WeStNs
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:34
@WeStudentNurse 12) Whether we are a student, newly qualified nurse, an experienced practitioner, or a manager with strategic leadership responsibilities, we can all take a role in greening up nursing practice! ?????????? #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@StnKirstin
16 September 2020 20:34
@WeStudentNurse Yes, the sustainable society. #WeStNs
@SamSwabyPUNC
16 September 2020 20:35
@WeStudentNurse @StnKirstin Yes ...many times. Was in Bob the builder cartoons too, educating the young ! #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:36
@WeStudentNurse Yes! It's so big that most people would see it, and some may have a better response if they understand the health implications. But it has to be done right, things like smaller carparks to encourage people not to drive can lead to congestion which makes it worse #WeStNs
@uoldancingnurse
16 September 2020 20:36
@WeStudentNurse I think if the NHS could prove that even with all it’s single use items it could promote sustainability and be environmentally conscious it would encourage other organisations to do the same #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:36
@uoldancingnurse @BrianWebster18 Is the go to for allotments. Definately a link between allotments and green behaviours. We love the group name- clever #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:37
@WeStudentNurse but if you do that and make it easier to get public transport, and make sure people know the options it might work better. #WeStNs

@nikkilouh
16 September 2020 20:39
@WeStudentNurse Yes as lots of peopl respect the NHS so if they promoted how to take more action on climate change people may well do it. #WestNs #WeGoGreener

@AnthonyLongbone
16 September 2020 20:40
@WeStudentNurse I do understand that especially when it comes to sorting and disposal of waste from hospitals etc. My current Trust does appear to be doing it’s bit & going greener goes much further #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:41
@SamSwabyPUNC @WeStudentNurse B'ham is just pretending. We have a tramline put in to take you walking distance across the city, the road works of which are causing chaos. New places are trying to promote traveling by public transport but just end up with constant queues of traffic at drop-off points #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse

@uoldancingnurse
16 September 2020 20:42
@WeStudentNurse I think so! As a student I'm not 100% sure of all the ways I can push for sustainability in health care (apart from stuff I've come across by chance). With the right education we can have the confidence to challenge and change things #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@nikkilouh
16 September 2020 20:42
@WeStudentNurse More understanding on these subjects as the vocabulary is banded about but do people really understand the implications or indeed how to make positive changes. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:42
Does the #NHS meed to green up to remain a respectable organisation? #WeStNs https://twitter.com/nikkilouh/status/1306316836372393990
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:43
@WeStudentNurse Wonder how that would go with disposal of drugs? I think always that part of the packet has gone in medicine bins when I've been on placement, presumed it was due to possible traces of drug ?????#WeStNs
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:43
For nursing students and teachers: use a 'sustainability lens' in nursing assignments (works for any topic!). Not just for adding in green elements, but financial and social considerations. Adds reflection, analysis, critical thinking too. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@AnthonyLongbone
16 September 2020 20:43
@WeStudentNurse It would get the thought processes going and create the conversation. You would begin to create a greener culture if you explore the issue as part of the learning, becomes an integral part of what we’re doing. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener
@SamSwabyPUNC
16 September 2020 20:44
@nikkilouh @WeStudentNurse Yes definitely the NHS is one of the most significant public sector contributer to climate change with nearly 20 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, their permits costing over 50 million, I think they are under pressure to < their carbon footprint and lead the way #WeStNs
@WeStudentNurse
16 September 2020 20:44
@uoldancingnurse Perhaps a further #leadership project for you ? #WeStNs
@HeatherBaid
16 September 2020 20:45
SusQI framework is an excellent starting point for planning green projects in healthcare practice and/or adding theoretical framework to nursing assignments. Scroll down on this website to find 2 articles which explain the framework: https://sustainablehealthcare.org.uk/susqi #WeStNs #WeGoGreener

@CathCooper2 Super ?? #WeStNs
@lucy_uo
16 September 2020 20:46
@WeStudentNurse I think so. If student nurses are aware then they are more likely to take it into placement and onto practice. @UniBham_Nursing we build our electives around the sustainable development goals, so we all know at least a little. #WeStNs

@SamSwabyPUNC
16 September 2020 20:49
@lucy_uo @WeStudentNurse Infrastructure is definitely a concern, I think there is a need here for collaboration between agencies and gov departments (transport etc). Many cities and towns are not designed adequately to accommodate active travel. #WeStNs
@StnKirstin

@WeStudentNurse Yes! It brings awareness to students and hoping they take it onto placement might end up educating there practice area into developing sustainable goals and areas of development. #WeStNs

@SamSwabyPUNC @WeStudentNurse No Birmingham was built around the car. They literally pushed walkers underground. Then they realised it wasn't working so pedestrianised the city centre...turning the surroundings into a massive ring road. #WeStNs

RT @WeStudentNurse: 3)Is an organisation such as the NHS ideal to pioneer and showcase climate action? #WeStNs #WeGoGreener

@WeStudentNurse One of the many joys of MH nursing for me is the opportunity to have a diverse range of conversations, there always the chance those conversations will turn into action. #WeStNs #WeGoGreener

@SamSwabyPUNC @WeStudentNurse But what do you expect from a city famous for its insane road #SpaghettiJunction #WeStNs
@StnKirstin
16 September 2020 20:55
@WeStudentNurse Yes! NHS is all about promoting good health and well-being and we now know that climate affects health, yet we don't hear much from the NHS regarding climate change and promoting sustainability etc. #WeStNs

@SamSwabyPUNC
16 September 2020 20:57
@WeStudentNurse Yes ...@PlymUni @jennie_aronsson asked us to complete a questionnaire regarding sustainability or understanding of it and its links to health. As time has progressed understanding has grown of the links between the too. #WeStNs

@SamSwabyPUNC @PlymUni @jennie_aronsson It's astonishingly complex isn't it #WeStNs

@WeStudentNurse Maybe something similar to encouraging patients to ask staff if they've washed their hands. Do you need to wear those gloves? And maybe patients could do things like change their own beds, or request not to have their beds and towels changed everyday #WeStNs
@SamSwabyPUNC

@lucy_uo @WeStudentNurse That's good, less air pollutants from being pedestrianised whilst shopping, also less accidents #WeStNs

@WeStudentNurse I know in certain area's you can get appointments etc emailed rather than printed out and sent, now I understand this would not suit everybody's need's but those who can could be encouraged to do this, this would reduce the amount of printing. #WeStNs
