Handover | Issue 40 - September 2017

By Handover editorial board

The editorship of Handover since its inception in 2007 has sat with the nursing leader at Te Pou.

Throughout the life of this publication service user lead Caro Swanson has contributed to the editing of each edition. Her attention to grammar and focus on using language that is less stigmatising makes the style of Handover unique.

In July 2016, Issue 36, Caro joined Suzette Poole, mental health nurse andclinical lead, to become the co-editor of Handover. Caro and Suzette work with the Handover editorial board.

  • Angela Gruar, manager of the practice and leadership portfolio, Te Pou, has keen eyes for detail and is the one who signs off the final proof of each issue.
