Standing your ground: having the confidence to discuss medical boundaries

23rd November 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Course outline

In light of the COVID-19 storm of the last 18 months, practitioners are reporting that, increasingly, the boundaries surrounding nursing issues are getting blurred. Managing the expectations of the pupils, parents, and staff can lead to a compromise of  care and process. It can also lead to unrealistic expectations of the nurse/nursing team from all parties.

This webinar aims to explore the role of the nurse in the school setting and offers strategies for the nurse to educate the community and reset those boundaries, establishing clear expectations for all.


Training topics include:

  • Are you a school nurse, matron or first aider? Clarifying your role in your setting
  • Addressing blurred boundaries
  • How to support the wider staff body in understanding your role and purpose in an education setting.


Learning outcomes:

  • Increased confidence in educating your school setting on the role of the nurse
  • Increased confidence in addressing blurred boundaries and clarifying roles, and strategies to support this
  • A better understanding of the role of the nurse vs matron or first aider.


  • Member rate: £60 (additional attendee: £15)
  • Non-member rate: £120*

Trainers: Jane Graham, Director, Hieda and Rosie McManus, Senior Nurse, The King’s School, Canterbury

Trained at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, Jane has 27 years in nursing; 17 of them in trauma and intensive care. Whilst in PICU, she had a number of different roles. Nine years of that included a role as a specialist retrieval nurse (CATS) that entailed travelling around the country to stabilize and bring back critically unstable children. To do this she learned advanced nursing and basic medical skills in resuscitation, all medical conditions, and trauma.

She went on to teach these skills to student nurses, qualified nurses and junior doctors as the Practice educator on intensive care. This role also involved lecturing regularly at South Bank University. She has been a DSL for Safeguarding at an independent boarding school where she was Lead Nurse. She is also an instructor for Qualsafe, an awarding body approved by the HSE.
