Richard Griffith
Two cases of fraud by district nurses demonstrate that district nurses need to be familiar with the behaviour that amounts to fraudulent activity, so they are able to protect NHS assets and take appropriate action to minimise the loss of funds needed for patient care and treatment. Fraud costs the NHS billions of pounds each year and takes money away from front-line services. The Fraud Act 2006 has made the offence clearer and easier to prosecute. Offences can range from false representation about qualifications and experience, to false timesheet claims and benefit fraud...

District nursing has a long history as a service that provides care for patients in their home environment. Demographic changes and a need to optimise out of hospital care has impacted on the acuity of patients supported and the complexity of caseload management. District nurses, in order to effectively manage such increased demands on their busy service, need to possess excellent, assertive case management skills. This study explores and evaluates the impact of the Specialist Practice Qualification in district nursing on the assertiveness and leadership skills of students...

Joan McDowell, Elizabeth Boyd
This paper presents a service evaluation on the role of Community Diabetes Nurse Specialists (CDNS), which was undertaken as a response to various changes. Quantitative and qualitative data were captured over 6 months. It was found that GPs refer patients to CDNSs four times more frequently than other health professionals. The clinical care of CDNSs mainly relates to diabetes education, insulin, assessment and self-management. Telehealth is used twice as frequently as face-to-face communications. The CDNSs do not refer patients onto other health professionals, but have multiple communications with other health professionals and agencies...

Edwin Tapiwa Chamanga
Venous leg ulcers are open lesions between the knee and the ankle joint, which occur in the presence of venous insufficiency. There are theories to explain the causes of venous insufficiency, which ultimately leads to venous hypertension and can result in leg ulceration. Although many patients present with evidence of venous hypertension, others do not, except for the manifestation of the ulcer. There are risk factors associated with venous insufficiency and a holistic approach must be taken in order to influence the management approach of venous leg ulceration...

Diabetes is a global disease, and its prevalence has increased rapidly in the last century. Many complications are associated with diabetes, and diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) are common. There is a variety of different treatments for DFU, and the aim of this article is to discuss the factors responsible for delayed wound healing in patients with diabetes, and the treatment strategies that are available.

Kiran Dhaliwal, Nicholas Lopez
After a burn injury, skin loses its protective properties, leaving the body open to a number of complications. The gold standard treatment for burn wounds is autologous skin grafting; however, this may not always be an option, due to insufficient amounts of donor skin. Wound dressings can be used as a primary treatment in those patients who are unsuitable for skin grafting. Many different materials are used to make the dressings; current materials include hydrocolloids, alginates, hydrogels, collagen and hyaluronic acid...

Venous ulcers or stasis ulcers account for 80% of lower extremity ulcerations. Approximately 1-2% of the population will suffer from the chronic debilitating condition, with chronic venous insufficiency affecting up to 50% of the adult population. There are many methods of treatment and common treatments include conventional, surgical or mechanical methods. This article examines the complications of leg ulcer management, with the emphasis on the use of antibiotics. The case study demonstrates the positive impact self-care can have as part of a treatment plan...
