Senior Project Officer Trauma Informed Preventative Care, RCH
Emily is a Clinical Nurse Consultant with the RCH Comfort Kids program (procedural pain management). She enjoys working with staff and families to create plans and coordinate procedures to ensure positive experiences at the hospital. She has also completed a number of quality improvement projects in the area of behaviours of concern, including leading a team to develop the Behaviour Support Profile in the EMR. This tool documents the non-medical needs of patients to ensure communication preferences, sensory needs, triggers and behaviours of concern are taken into account when in hospital.
Emily hopes the strategy helps to build a hospital wide culture where mental and behavioural health care are seen as equal to medical health care, and all Campus staff are empowered to address mental and behavioural health needs with confidence and compassion.
