In these unprecedented times respiratory nurses are finding themselves in the front line of the pandemic. Some may be asked to enhance skills, others to teach, return to practice, or work in unfamiliar environments, in addition to thinking about their own and their family’s health. This will be an unsettling and anxious time and we are suggesting that respiratory nurses keep an account of their experiences during the pandemic to facilitate reflection and provide important documentary evidence. In an effort to capture the ‘nursing voice’ and learn from our individual and collective experiences, you may be asked at a later date to submit your journal and participate in further research. This will be entirely voluntary with anonymity and confidentiality preserved. You can find out more here.
