BAUN and UKONS join forces with Janssen to deliver a masterclass for nurses looking after men with advanced prostate cancer

Many nurses working with men with advanced prostate cancer will come to the role with a urological or oncological nursing background.  However the role requires a hybrid of knowledge, skills and experience to successfully manage the effects of the disease and the treatments.  This unique one day course takes place on 12th September at The Robens Suite, Guys Hospital in London and will bring together these specialities to examine the support and care we offer our patients

The day starts with an overview of the ever-changing treatment pathway for men with advanced prostate cancer. UKONS and BAUN speakers will then discuss both the oncological and urological care of men including LUTS, ED, ADT side effects, oncological side effects and emergencies and the future of the management of this client group. We really look forward to the opportunity to update ourselves and learn from each other

We also have an interactive session form Inspire Change looking at techniques we can develop in engaging patients, managing treatment adherence and motivational interviewing

There are only 80 places so please sign up early to avoid disappointment

You can register by contacting Jo Cookson , Medical Education Manager from Janssen at jcookson@its.jnj.com




Nurses On-Line Resilience Gym Seminar

 “Build your Inner Strength & Outer Power”


Monday, 12th September 2016, 6pm - 45 minutes webinar


What is it? – A 45 minute live and virtual on-line seminar (Webinar) broadcast directly to your smart phone that aims to boost your wellbeing and your mental, physical, spiritual and emotional resilience (the ability to bounce back and cope under pressure and shock.)


Who is it aimed at? – NHS Nurses operating in a high pressure, low budget, old equipment environment and facing everyday challenges that most people would complain about.

It is for the s-heroes and heroes that Love the NHS, love their jobs and feel a calling to serve patients. And those that would love to love their immediate ENVIRONMENT and daily work MORE and be armed with better inner and outer RESOURCES to move up from just coping to THRIVING.


Where do I sign up? – To receive the live Gotowebinar broadcast on your phone please register with your basic details clicking on the link here –


To access the webinar on your phone simply down load the Gotomeeting app to your smart phone.


What will I get out of it? – Month after month, this light, fun and high energy “magazine” programme will give you self belief, language tools, negotiation skills and the assertive balance (upping both your positive personality and awesome potential power) to be more effective in communication, to get more of what you need and to not have to take some of the nonsense handed out to you.


What is it NOT? – A fix-all wonder pill that will give you all the answers in 45 minutes – like physical wellbeing it is a process and a journey that is enjoyable, enlightening and ends when you feel the way you wish to feel.


What are the benefits? – The show will provide you with the tools and self belief to own your VOICE, define your professional identity and be who you need to be to get the job done without succumbing to external bullying, abusive language or the manipulation of senior people taking full advantage of your good will and professional dedication.


How will I know when I have developed my outer power? – When you can fully express your purpose and identity with presence, power and clarity and others sit up and listen and you feel centered, confident and motivated.


Isn’t there always a catch and a cost? What will I have to let go of? You will be asked to give up your “victim” behaviours and your people pleasing language because people pleasers don’t please people. There is no financial cost to the programme just the time you invest in showing up.


How long is the series?  - There will be 3 programmes before the BAUN conference in Liverpool in November 2016. If we get the engagement that is predicted we will then expand the resilience programme series with further broadcasts events and activities in 2017.


What is the content? In the show we will cover powerful and powerless language, the cost to you of your self-limiting beliefs and inherited scripts. We will learn a few difficult people profiles and gain strategies to both understand the motivation of these people and the tactics that we can employ to protect ourselves from the damaging aspects of their behaviours and to make progress via dialogue with them to derive a healthier understanding and agreement.


Remind me again – How do a start? Simply register with your basic details by clicking on this link and schedule the time in your diary to be available to receive the broadcast on your phone. (Don’t worry if you miss the live show – though we need you to be there if you can – a recording will be available afterwards.)



Why will it be on my phone? – Because your NHS computers are not new enough to receive the webinar!


Can I bring a friend? – Sure, simply forward this to any other Nurse who may benefit from building their inner strength and developing their outer power.


See you…
