Here are some recent projects funded by our Small Grants Competition:
Lisha Joseph, CNM II in our Kilmainham Ward, tells us about her project funded by our Small Grants Competition… “It was great opportunity to participate in the small grants competition. Kilmainham ward had participated for the first time in the competition and it has been a privilege to have won a grant to receive the care flex overnight chair for the relatives of patients who are on End of Life. It will be a great comfort and a feeling of being with their loved one during the grieving process.”
Carmel Cooney, Occupational Therapist here at St. James’s Hospital tells us about her project funded by our Small Grants Competition…
“Thanks to a SJH Foundation Grant, the Occupational Therapy department has commenced a new Osteoarthritis Self-Management group programme, providing strategies to reduce pain and fatigue and improve hand strength and functional ability. Feedback to date has been positive, with group participants reporting “I learned a lot about my condition.. it helped me a lot to cope with my pain, plus I met some lovely people too”.
Another recipient of our Small Grants Competition tells us about their initiative…Hollybrook Lodge is home to St. James’s Hospital’s Residential Care Units and Ciarán Murray, Activity Coordinator, tells us more…
“Our message, from the heart of Hollybrook Lodge and the hearts of our Residents to the Saint James’s Hospital Foundation donors, is thank you for your generosity, compassion and consideration. The Grant we received has contributed towards Community and Cultural experiences for residents including visits to the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) for the Azure Dementia Friendly, hosting Woolly Farm (turning Hollybrook Lodge into a farm for a day) and hosting plays by the Carnation Theatre’s ‘Bath Night on Henrietta Street’ and ‘Greyhound on Train’. This grant continues to create opportunity and experiences of joy and we honour the people who have contributed to the Foundation. Through you, we are proud to be able to enhance the lives of Residents. A grant is not a loan. We don’t have to pay it back and we certainly do not take that for granted. We have invested the Grant to achieve the greatest return on investment we can achieve through benefiting quality of life and meaningful experiences for Residents. We hope you all hear our message.” – Ciarán Murray Activity Coordinator St. James’s Hospital.
Our Small Grants Competition allows staff in St. James’s Hospital Dublin apply for funding for projects and initiatives to enhance patient comfort and care. Ross Sherwood, Clinical Engineering Technician, explains what difference Small Grants Funding has made to him and his team:
“The Department of Medical Physics and Bio-Engineering plan to use their new 3D printer to carry out further research and development work in the field of 3D printed surgical teaching aids and the creation of tools to develop patient specific prostheses. 3D printers are an additive manufacturing device where models are created from digital model files without the need for special tools required by traditional manufacturing methods. Recent trends show how modern 3D printing techniques allow for users to create and design models at a low cost and in a short space of time. The department wishes to take advantage of this and continue their work to allow for better patient outcomes.”
Our Small Grants Competition allows staff in St. James’s Hospital apply for funding for projects and initiatives to enhance patient comfort and care. Amy Wilkinson, Clinical Placement Co-ordinator (Nurse Practice Development Unit) tells us about her project…
“We are delighted with our new IV trainer hands. They enable us to deliver a more efficient IV workshop and staff nurses get to practice IV drug administration on training equipment that mimics the anatomy of a human being in a situation which mirrors the clinical setting. Sincere thanks to the SJH Foundation.”
