The Urological Journal
For Urological Professionals
latest Professional Advice
This quarterly publication is sent free to all BAUN Members and it is full of the latest news in urological nursing and what’s happening in the association.
Small steps, but we seem to be on the right track of a return to a degree of normality. There is a plan, and that plan may vary but it is a plan, nevertheless. Brighter, longer days and the welcome arrival of spring will hopefully help us all regain some stamina and renewed determination to face the challenges that the past year has created. I cannot stress enough how important it is to ensure you are looking after your own wellbeing and getting the support you need.
It is important to reflect, in order to move forward and that may be a personal reflection of your time redeployed or how your service has adapted during Covid. Having spent a month supporting my own ICCU, I know the challenges you may have faced, and the emotions associated with this. It would be really great to hear your stories and I am sure your experiences will resonate with others.
Please contact me at BAUNPresident@fitwise.co.uk or submit your experience to our Newsletter.
I would like to extend a well-earned congratulations to Jonah Rusere for being awarded the BJN Urology Nurse of the year. It’s great to see your hard work in facilitating the transformation and training of trans perineal prostate biopsy technique under local anaesthetic recognised. Congratulations also to Kelly Kusinski and Alaina Howard for being nominated.

The working groups require nurse representation on these groups, and I would encourage you to offer your passion, energy as well as your expertise and innovative thinking to make a difference to the future shape of urological services.
