Lucy Speakman, Helen Walthall
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) refers to a cluster of fibroinflammatory conditions. There are limited treatment options and most patients have severe dyspnoea. The prognosis is poor. This study aims to evaluate current literature on the assessment and management of refractory breathlessness in ILD. Few tools are available to assess dyspnoea in advanced respiratory disease. Holistic assessment requires a combination of tools but there are few disease specific tools. The role of opioids is well established in the reduction of breathlessness, but there is insufficient evidence that benzodiazepines are beneficial...

Hannah Britton
With an ageing population and increasing focus on community care, this study aimed to explore the experiences of community nurses in assessing frailty and planning interventions around frailty. Six community nurses were recruited for face-to-face semi-structured interviews as part of this qualitative study which was underpinned by a competence framework ( Royal College of Nursing, 2009 ). Thematic analysis was used and frailty was identified as an emerging topic within practice. Participants discussed several aspects associated with frailty; however, some uncertainty around the concept of frailty and its definition was noted, particularly for staff who had received limited frailty training...

Richard Griffith
Last month's article considered capacity to consent to sexual activity. This month's article reviews the case of a man from Nottingham who was jailed for 7 years for infecting two former lovers with HIV and considers whether those who act recklessly put others at risk of infection during sexual activity should be held criminally liable and prosecuted for their actions.

The overall aim of the investigation was to redress a knowledge gap by exploring community nursing middle managers' (CNMMs') experiences of role enactment through change within Community Health Partnerships (CHPs) in Scotland-now further evolved into Health and Social Care Partnerships (HSCPs). HSCPs play a key role in shifting care from the acute to the primary care/community setting. However, a literature review demonstrated there has been very little research into the role of CNMMs within the changing primary care context...

June Jones, Heather Williams
Pain is a complex sensation with a variety of qualities rather than a single sensation varying in intensity. People find it difficult to describe their pain mainly because its nature and intensity vary so much, not only between individuals but also for a person over time. This article provides an overview of wound pain, its causes and assessment, with a focus on the procedure of dressing change itself. The wound care industry has manufactured dressings to assist in reducing the pain experience and it is incumbent on health care professionals to make the most appropriate dressing selection for the individual patient and wound, rather than a 'one type of dressing fits all' approach...

Valentina Vanzi, Elena Toma
Skin tears are acute wounds, often mismanaged and misdiagnosed that can convert to chronic wounds, representing a common but relevant burden to both the individual and the health care system. The implementation of prevention protocols and training programs is essential to manage these wounds in the community. Managing a skin tear-related problem at home represents a challenge, due to some critical issues and specific conditions. A multifaceted prevention programme should consider the involvement of relatives, caregivers and personal care aides in order to promote patients' safety, to minimise the risk of trauma and to improve patients' outcomes following a skin injury...

Chronic leg ulcers have a profound impact on patients' physical, functional, and psychological status, which may result in several life changes and a significant decline in quality of life (QoL). We aimed to study what changed in patients' lives after developing a chronic leg ulcer, including QoL, patients' comprehension of the disease and related feelings. A cross-sectional study, using an anonymous questionnaire and the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) was performed. Chronic leg ulcers were life changing events, causing abandonment of work in almost 80% of the patients and important limitations in daily activities and autonomy...

Avalon Nursing Home is fully aware of the potential for pressure ulcers in immobile residents and were keen to undertake an evaluation to ensure their residents have the most appropriate care possible. They selected Apex Pro-care to evaluate as there were concerns for residents heels in those with any arterial insufficiency. The Apex Pro-care mattress has a heel section where one or more of the bottom five cells can be deflated under the patient's heel to create a void, which will enable the heel to "float" so that there is no pressure in contact with the heel area...
