Br J Community Nurs 2019 Feb;24(2):58-66

Future of Specialist Practice Qualifications in district nursing for band 6 leadership roles.

Br J Community Nurs 2019 Jan;24(1):10-15

Associate Professor, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, De Montfort University, UK.

District nurse numbers in the UK are rapidly declining. To overcome this severe staff shortage, one community trust in a rural county appointed 'case managers' (nurses without Specialist Practice Qualifications in district nursing [SPQDN]) in band 6 leadership roles that were traditionally held by district nurses. Here, we aimed to establish the value of the SPQDN to determine if there is a future for the conventionally accepted DN role, instead of case managers. Read More

Nordic homecare nursing from the perspective of homecare nurses-a meta-ethnography.

Br J Community Nurs 2018 Dec;23(12):597-604

Associate professor, Study director, Aarhus University, Department of Public Health, Denmark.

The pressure on homecare nursing in the Nordic countries has increased in recent years because of a reorganisation of healthcare systems that has put a focus on very early discharge from hospital as well as demographic changes. This article details an analysis of the findings of 13 published qualitative research reports about Nordic homecare nurses' experiences of their work. Using a process of meta-ethnography, the authors identify five themes within the primary research: home care as a professional practice on foreign ground; home care as a massive time constraint; home care as fair rationing; home care as relationships with relatives as fellow players or opponents; and home care as latent paternalism.

Professor and Director for the Institute of Skin Integrity and Infection prevention, Department of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Huddersfield, Queensgate, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

Chronic wounds are associated with a significant patient, healthcare and financial burden and can have extensive implications for healthcare. Age is a significant risk factor for developing chronic wounds, due to physical changes in skin integrity and several age-related complex comorbidities, including poor nutrition and mobility. Pressure ulcers (PU) are a common type of chronic wound that can have a substantial impact on health-related quality of life and patient outcomes. Read More

There are a number factors that need to be considered when managing frail older people with multiple health problems. Inappropriate polypharmacy and poor adherence, particularly in older adults, is associated with negative health outcomes.
