The Marvellous Nurse Inventing Room - 2014-2017

Thanks to the support of the Burdett Trust for Nursing, we were able to support innovative nurse-led research projects.

Our aim through the Marvellous Inventing Room Programme was to improve the quality of care for seriously ill children and young people. The programme also helped to improve skills in leadership, research and project management for children's nurses.

A summary of the external evaluation of the project can be read here.
