Life-long ambition

first_imgMavisGordon looks back at her varied career in occupational health and describes howshe has overcome personal diversity to form her own successful OH consultancyI started my career in occupational health in 1979 when I was appointednursing officer in OH at the Medway Health Authority. With a background inIntensive Care and A&E nursing, I persuaded Brenda Slaney (whose obituaryappeared in Occupational Health December 2002) to add me to a fully subscribedcourse at Fords of Dagenham and the Royal College of Nursing. In 1985, I gained my Diploma in Nursing Education and was appointed lecturerin OH nursing, replacing Ruth Alston, at the Institute of Advanced NursingEducation. I was the first OH tutor to be appointed from a background in theNHS OH service and enjoyed the challenge of running the full time courses.Peter Holgate was the principal lecturer and I worked closely with MurielLawson and Jane Molloy who led the day release courses. The courses had been run in a traditional mode for some time and a more facilitativestyle was introduced. Problem-solving groups, debates and practical exerciseshelped prepare students for the real world and dilemmas faced in OH practice.There was a need to improve communications between teachers and practical worksupervisors, so we set up facilitator days. This led to a greater selection ofplacements and a challenging opportunity for open discussion and new ideas onthe meeting days. The certificate courses were to be upgraded to diploma anddegree level and we worked in line with other UK centres to establish thesecourses. Brenda Slaney and Peter Holgate had organised OH courses in Nigeria in theearly eighties, and plans were discussed to set up similar courses in Zambia.Peter made a preliminary assessment visit, but was in poor health and shortlyafterwards tragically died from a heart attack at the wheel of his car inFrance. We were all hugely shocked and his death left a large gap in the worldof OH nursing, the English National Board, the UKCC and more specifically atthe Institute. I was asked to become acting principal lecturer and wasappointed to the post a year later. Zambian courses The Zambian courses now fell to me to develop and implement and it was asharp learning curve, as we were teaching within a totally different culture.The students were very keen to learn and at the start sat expectantly waitingwith pencils and paper to write down every word. They soon were able to enjoyour more facilitative style of teaching and we learned as much from them as theydid from us. I remember leading a session on alcohol in the workplace. Two students weregiggling and one said: “It is not the same here because we work in abrewery and some men have to be drunk. They are tasters and if they are notdrunk the bosses think the beer is bad.” There was also the issue around lack of health and safety in the leadfactory, where the workers were constantly coming to the clinic complaining ofstomach cramps, headaches and coughs. For the stomach cramps they were givenindigestion mixture, for the headaches paracetamol, for the coughs antibiotics.No-one had thought of going to the factory to look at the processes, whereexposures to high levels of lead dust were causing the problems. Even the nursehad been admitted to hospital for an appendicectomy, but just in time it wasfound that her blood lead level was raised to a dangerous level. After the course this student proudly wrote to me about the changes she hadimplemented in the factory through safer work processes and ventilationsystems. However, I was not satisfied with the training methods we had used and didsome research into developing courses in emerging countries. I later studiedfor an MA, using this curriculum research as my focus. It is not effective to‘lift’ a UK course and set it up in a foreign culture, many factors have to beexplored. The key points of OH practice remain the same but the context,ethics, politics and environment are totally different. Further redesignedcourses followed and more than 100 Zambian nurses achieved the RCN AwardCertificate. One student, Maria Lemba, was able to come to the UK and study forher full OHN qualification. She is still working here. Early retirement In 1988 I was involved in a car accident that damaged my cervical andthoracic spine. I managed to keep working as much as possible, between hospitaladmissions and outpatient treatments. However, eventually the pain anddisability caused by the accident forced me to take early retirement from theRCN. I was devastated to lose my career and could see no way forward in thefield of OH. The following year I achieved my MA in Education, but a few months later myhusband died of a massive brain stem haemorrhage. This happened the sameweekend that the youngest of three sons was leaving for university, 400 milesaway in Glasgow. In one year I had suffered three huge losses. I was wellsupported by friends and family, but spent the first year feeling like an actoron a stage, it wasn’t real, this wasn’t happening to me. Eventually, I decided that despite my back problems, I was not brain deadand I should get back to the real world. I started to do some teaching on afreelance basis. In 1994 I was teaching for the British Safety Council when oneof the health and safety managers on the course asked me to give his companysome advice. His employer was a service company where there had never been OHprovision and he was interested in the emphasis I had made on prevention ratherthan cure. Consultancy career So started my consultancy career. I quickly found myself in a hard-hat andhigh visibility jacket, it was like ‘coming home’. The company (which asked notto be named) is an international service company with a diverse and widespreadcustomer base, ranging from government defence organisations to airports andcommercial companies. There are 35,000 employees worldwide and servicesprovided include facilities management, project management and systems supportthrough to total business design, build, finance and operations. Occupational health advice and interventions are therefore across a hugerange of working groups including Ministry of Defence (MOD) sites, leisurecentres, rail, health authorities, local government, education, building andmaintenance, dockyards, air traffic control and transport systems. The initial work I carried out for the company was well received andgradually, more divisions working within the parent company requested OH adviceand interventions. To my surprise I really enjoyed ‘getting back to the coalface’ again and found the work varied and challenging. Educating managementabout OH, gaining credibility by practice and setting up systems in a ‘virgin’and sometimes unco-operative environment was exciting and I was able to liveout my long-held conviction that such a service can be successfully nurse led.I was able to organise my work from home and the company was very supportive inrelation to my back problem by providing overnight accommodation and/or flyingto avoid too much driving. Three years on, I was given a five-minute meeting with the chief executive.He arrived without having read the executive summary I had prepared for him. Heallowed me a little more time to explain OH functions within his company, andthen he gave his full support. From then on I have been ultimately responsibleto the chief executive, who takes a personal interest in OH at our annualmeetings. At about the same time I started to sub-contract out some work andgathered experienced nurse consultants into the Gordon Associates team (seebelow for more on the work of the team). Our team works across a wide variety of contracts, such as traffic systems,MOD sites, leisure centres, rail maintenance, airfields, refuse collection andhospitals. As an international company we also advise globally and I have visitedAustralia and Ascension Island for OH assessment. We have designed a foundation course for nurses, which has RCN validationand is available to any nurse who may be interested in working in the field ofOH. There are 17 nurses in the Gordon Associates team – led by Gesina Tait,support director – some very well known and highly qualified OH nurses amongthem. We are proud of achieving a high standard of service for our customersand enjoy the autonomy and responsibility that we carry. Six years ago I met John and we married. John had undergone a single lungtransplant a few years earlier and was the bravest person I have ever met. Hehad a handicap of 10 in golf and we enjoyed life to the full, moving down toDevon to enjoy less polluted air, which helped his breathing. Sadly John diedin June 2001. He had helped me a lot with my life, a determination to surviveand to make maximum use of every opportunity. Conclusion As I look back over my nursing career spanning 42 years, 23 of those in OH,I can honestly say that as one door closes, another opens. As a part-time staffnurse, single parent with three young sons, I would never have dreamed that Iwould one day be teaching at the RCN, working in Zambia or setting up an OHconsultancy. I guess it’s all down to being motivated and sincerely believingin the value of the service being offered. I have found no problems indovetailing my expertise as an OH nurse with other providers in this field,such as health and safety advisers and ergonomists. Working together we eachbring a unique skill to our employers and more importantly, our clients. I care deeply about nursing, occupational health and people, and believethat focusing on OH issues, rather than jealously guarding our patches canbring new life to our speciality. If anyone reading this article feels inspiredto take up consultancy work or to even get on the first rung of the ladder andjoin one of our foundation courses, why not contact me on [email protected] Gordon MA(Ed) RGN OHNCert DipNEd RNT, director Gordon Associates Life-long ambitionOn 1 Feb 2003 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.

Lakers grind out a victory in Memphis to split 2-game trip

first_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed The duo lit up the 3-point line, combining to shoot 8 for 16 from deep and accounting for half of the Lakers’ season-best long-range total. Playing more minutes than usual to supplement a lineup without Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo, they also played key roles in limiting the influence of the Memphis backcourt, including Mike Conley (4 for 12, 12 points).The Lakers took their first double-digit lead a minute before the end of the first quarter and never gave it up. Even when the bench rotated in – a sticking point in a handful of games this season – the Lakers managed to grow the advantage, pushing pace and grabbing rebounds even with James cooling his heels.Teammates cited the energy of backup center Tyson Chandler, who had 10 of his 14 rebounds in the first half, for setting the tone on the glass. The Lakers had a 36-11 rebounding advantage by halftime, fueling the 23-point gap to that point in the game. The Lakers set a season-high with 19 offensive rebounds.Related Articles PreviousGrizzlies center Marc Gasol drives against Lakers center JaVale McGee during the first half of Saturday’s game in Memphis, Tenn.

(AP Photo/Brandon Dill)ExpandMEMPHIS — The selling point of the Grizzlies for the better part of a decade is that while they might not have the most talent, they’re rarely out-hustled on the floor of the FedEx Forum.How striking, then, to see the Lakers (16-10) beating the Grizzlies on the glass, gathering up loose balls, smothering on defense – out-grinding Memphis on the second night of a road back-to-back.That tenacity carried the Lakers to their fifth win in six games, a 111-88 bruising of Memphis (15-10) that underlined not only a talent gap but a willingness to do the dirty work. With a 21-rebound advantage and 20 second-chance points while holding the Grizzlies to 40.5 percent shooting, the Lakers won with a purely Memphis-ian brand of grit.It was all the more welcome on the road, where the Lakers improved to .500 on the year. They also did it without three rotation players, a scenario Coach Luke Walton acknowledged beforehand was going to lead him to play “interesting” lineups. But he needn’t have feared: The Lakers improved to 5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs, which Walton called an encouraging sign for the team’s maturity.

We came out and pretty much put our stamp on the game early and we kept it. That’s not easy to do against a team like that.”LeBron James was his typical self: 20 points, eight rebounds and nine assists to go with a handful of crowd-pleasing dunks on the rare occasions when the Lakers were able to break out in transition. But Kyle Kuzma also was a clearly established running mate in the victory, adding 20 points, nine rebounds and six assists while hitting four 3-pointers.Though his rookie year highlighted his scoring abilities, Kuzma has been vocal about his determination to transcend his status as a mere bucket-getter. The last five games have offered a tantalizing whiff of that potential: He’s averaging 21.4 points, but also 9.2 rebounds, 4.4 assists and shooting over 38 percent from 3-point range while getting highlighted by Walton as a plus-defender.“Recently I haven’t really had to think about scoring too much, it just comes natural,” Kuzma said. “I just try to defend, rebound and try to find my teammates. I know the scoring is gonna be there.”While Walton bemoaned how his shallow depth at guard was hurting the continuity of the team, it was hard to actually see the dropoff with how Josh Hart and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope played on Saturday night.

Players and staff dined on chicken wings, yukking it up over the team’s latest win.With 12 wins in the last 16 games, winning is starting to feel a little more natural to these Lakers. And winning always feels good.“Anytime you come in this building you expect it to be physical,” James said. “You expect to play at their pace, because that’s just the way they play.

Muntari vows to walk off again if racially abused

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Muntari called on FIFA president Gianni Infantino to do more to clampdown on the evil of racism in football.“I think he is capable of doing something in a good way to fight racism. I want him to fight racism,” he said.“I never heard anything like that in England because I think they don’t tolerate it.“England is the example for the world. If a country doesn’t tolerate it then it means you get rid of it.” London, United Kingdom | AFP |  Pescara’s Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari has promised to walk off the pitch again if he has to endure any more racial abuse during a match.Muntari was sent off last week for leaving the field after claiming he was racially abused during a Serie A game against Cagliari.The 32-year-old, who was initially booked for dissent, had his suspension overturned, but the former Inter Milan star believes racism is “everywhere and getting worse” and he is determined to take a stand.“I went through hell and was treated like a criminal,” he told BBC Sport on Monday.“I went off the field because it wasn’t right for me to be on the field while I have been racially abused.“If I had this problem today, tomorrow or the next game I would go off again.”last_img read more
