A charitable nursing trust is focusing its grants programme for 2016 on men's health.
The Burdett Trust for Nursing makes grants to nurses and allied health professionals for projects to improve patient care. It has selected the theme of ‘Men’s Health and Emergent Longer‐Term Conditions’ for their focussed 2016 Grants Programme.
This grants programme will support innovative, nurse‐led initiatives that promote men’s health and wellbeing and improve detection and access to health services. The organisation are interested in projects that will help to define proactive strategies and interventions that seek to promote better self‐care and self‐management and reverse the negative impact that undetected and untreated men’s longer‐term health challenges may impart.
The Burdett Trust believes that nurses can and should play an important role in closing the ‘men’s health gap’. The resulting benefits will have an impact not only on men, but on their families and society as a whole.
Martin Tod, the CEO of the Men's Health Forum said:
This is a great initiative. Nurses have always been a major driving force in the movement to improve men's health and it's great that the Burdett Trust is making funding available to help this to continue. We ourselves were set up by the Royal College of Nursing back in 1995. We'll also be happy to provide support and information to anyone looking to make a bid.
