Members of the GPU were pleased to welcome Helen Malherbe last Thursday, September 25th, for a short visit. Helen is over from Johannesburg for a two-week visit to gather background data for her PhD on medical education related to inherited disorders. She wanted to come and speak to GPU members about our work on nursing competencies and the Telling Stories resource. In particular, Helen was interested in learning about the approaches we have used to develop and revise the nursing competency framework and the importance of engaging stakeholders in this. She was also very appreciative of the close links between the framework and Telling Stories.
