After a year of cancellations due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we were so pleased to be able to host our Health & Social Care Bursary again, especially on its 30th anniversary! As always, we received a number of impressive applications and were amazed at the innovative ideas put forward. This year, Kelly Marquis, a paramedic frailty practitioner on secondment from the St John Emergency Ambulance Service to HSC, won first place and received the top prize of £2,500 to get her idea off the ground.
Today, Insurance Corporation celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Health & Social Care Bursary, which helps HSC staff bring their ideas on how to improve the provision of health and care in the Bailiwick to life.
In 2019, the judges of the Insurance Corporation Health & Social Care Bursary were incredibly impressed by the enthusiasm and passion of the group behind the RITA Project. The project uses reminiscence therapy, also known as life therapy, to treat severe memory loss or dementia. It could include looking back on old photographs or listening to songs from decades past.
Deborah Harris, Moira Norman and Olwen Bain-Brehaut highlighted the growing evidence supporting the use of digital reminiscence therapy as a tool to improve the experience of patients in hospital and other care settings. Hoping to replicate the results being achieved in the UK with the use of machines called RITAs, they put their idea forward and were thrilled to receive the Bursary’s top prize of £2,000.
