About us

The pmm-nursing project is lead by Professor Helen Foster as an academic collaboration between Newcastle University, UK and Northumbria University, UK in partnership with the paediatric rheumatology team at the Great North Children's Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. The project team includes nurses, nurse educators and doctors with further input from physical therapists, psychologists and social scientists to develop the content. The pmm website has been developed with local web designers and experts in clinical education with input from nurses working in various health care contexts. We also have some very young talented artists providing drawings of our team and our work - we hope you enjoy these as much as we do ! 

Key points about pmm-nursing:

  • Nurses from a wide spread of health care contexts have contributed to the content.
  • Nurses students, nurses and nurse educators provided guidance about the format and layout.
  • Funding for pmm-nursing has been obtained from an unrestricted educational bursary from Pfizer pharmaceuticals.
  • The content for pmm-nursing will be reviewed on an annual basis - the next review is due September 2018.
