The qualified district nurse (DN) role demands high levels of leadership. Attracting the right candidates to apply for the Specialist Practice Qualification District Nursing (SPQDN) education programme is essential to ensure fitness to practice on qualification. Anecdotal evidence suggested that the traditional panel interview discouraged candidates from applying and a need to improve the quality of the overall interview process was identified by the authors. The University of Central Lancashire in partnership with Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust adopted the National Values Based Recruitment (VBR) Framework to select candidates to gain entry onto the SPQDN course...

BACKGROUND: In light of current trends and healthcare evolutions, delegation of patient care from home nurses to health care assistants (HCAs) is increasingly important. Hygienic care is an essential component of nursing education and practice, yet it has rarely been the subject of scientific literature. AIM: To understand the opinions and experiences of home nurses and policy makers with regard to the meaning of hygienic care and the delegation of these acts in the context of home nursing...

Richard Griffith
Best interests is the standard by which the law judges the propriety of care and treatment for adults who lack decision making capacity. The Mental Capacity Act 2005 Code of Practice argues that the best way to decide on a person's best interests is through a multidisciplinary best interests meeting to enable all views, including those of the patient and their carers to be properly considered. In this article Richard Griffith considers the conduct of a best interest meeting and the role of district nurses in those meetings...

Jane McClinchy
Diabetes UK's revised nutrition guidelines for the prevention and management of diabetes, published recently, encourage education in self-management and include additional guidance for older people with diabetes. The incidence of diabetes in older people is increasing. Many older people with diabetes are healthy and mobile, and live in the community, but a number are frail and living in care homes. Those who are frail are at increased risk of malnutrition from a range of causes. Older people with diabetes should be assessed for malnutrition risk and referred to a dietitian if required...

This article reflects on the history of the NHS in Wales and how this has led to its current structure. How this structure supports integrated working across primary, community and secondary care and how further integration with social care is moving forward and its direct effects on district nursing are explored. This article describes how district nursing is meeting these challenges. Support for district nurses as part of integrated multiprofessional teams is being developed to promote appropriately staffed teams centred on meeting the requirements of people within a designated area and ensuring that home is the best and first place of care...

Julie Van Onselen
Psoriasis affects 1.5% of the UK population and due to the ageing population it is more common in older people. The incidence of type II psoriasis peaks in patients between 57 and 62 years of age, and has different genetic markers. Chronic plaque psoriasis can be challenging for older people as the majority are treated in primary care and expected to self-manage. Community nurses can support older people with psoriasis and their families in understanding current evidence based psoriasis management, and finding solutions to these challenges...

Richard Griffith
District nurses frequently provide physical care and treatment to patients in their own homes and care homes who have previously been detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 for the treatment of a mental illness. Such patients are commonly subject to community provisions of the Mental Health Act 1983 and it is important that districts nurses are aware of the implications of these provisions on the patients care and support. In this article the author considers a detained mental health patient's right to aftercare under the Mental Health Act 1983, section 117...

Demands made on nursing staff are expanding and changing, requiring a broad set of competencies that require evaluation and enhancement in places. This study used the Nurse Competence Scale to measure self-assessed competence among nurses working in three municipal health-care services in Norway. Results indicate that nurses perceive their competence as being satisfactory overall, but there are areas that would benefit from improvement: providing patients' family members with education and guidance, quality assurance, and using research to evaluate and develop services...

The education sector faces major challenges in providing learning experiences so that newly qualified nurses feel adequately prepared to work in a community setting. With this in mind, higher education institutions need to develop more innovative ways to deliver the community-nurse experience to student nurses. This paper presents and explores how simulation provides an opportunity for educators to support and evaluate student performance in an environment that models a complete patient encounter in the community...

The Community Challenge is a simulated community event for pre-registration nursing students across all four fields. Through the provision of real-time simulation, the Community Challenge has combined a deeper learning for both nursing students and the drama students who were involved in making the scenarios real and interactive. The event was run over 5 days, with positive evaluations from students and staff. Furthermore, Community Challenge has been found to be successful in expanding opportunities for students that align with national drivers, curriculum planning and interprofessional learning...
