Jacinta Nzinga: Understanding nurses’ work to care for sick newborns

To really understand the work of nurses in very busy wards where care for sick newborns is provided, you have to be there. Using detailed observations, day, night and weekends, linked to narrative interviews, the routines, compromises and coping strategies that characterise the delivery of hospital care for newborns are brought to light providing critical information to understand why care is missed and to guide improvement efforts.

COVID-19 in Nepal

The COVID situation in Nepal is dire with many hospitalisations & deaths, economic hardship, unemployment, poverty and hunger. In discussion with our Nepal Unit, we have set up a fundraiser to support the Rotary Club of Kathmandu Mid-Town who are providing food to workers who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic. All donations gratefully received.

COVID outbreak

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health is taking measures to prevent the spread of the disease.

Departments are instructed by the University’s Registrar to continue to work from home where possible, and manage the return to on site working, based on the University guidelines for risk assessments and work prioritisation.

This is to restrict contact between individuals as far as possible. The University remains open and operating as far as possible with the following restrictions:

  • No public access to the University
  • On-site activity permitted where it cannot be undertaken remotely, driven by safety, capacity and other factors such as schools reopening/other changes in government guidelines
  • Teaching and assessment are undertaken remotely where possible and, depending on government guidelines, gatherings of staff and students only permitted where essential for teaching and assessment to take place
