Reflections on returning to the front line with the Covid-19 crisis

Reflections on returning to the front line with the Covid-19 crisis
Viewpoints

This year has presented greater challenges to community and district nurse education than ever before. Within higher education institutions, we have certainly felt the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in a variety of ways, but I am proud to say that within my own university, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), we made the switch to online teaching with consummate ease and have continued to provide teaching and learning support for our precious students throughout the lock down. But, for some lecturers within our faculty, continuing the ‘business unusual’ approach to teaching and learning was also accompanied by a personal drive to return to the front line of NHS care. With the support of our school leadership, I am proud to say that within my own team of family community and public health specialists, more than 75% of us were able to offer support to front line colleagues in a variety of forms.
