Helen Marshall, Sally Sprung
The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) is statutory legislation introduced in 2007 to protect and empower people to make decisions for themselves and those who were deemed as unable to make choices would have decisions made on their behalf, often by health professionals. All health professionals must follow the guiding principles of this legislation. Yet a scrutiny report by the House of Lords concluded this legislation was under-used with a lack of knowledge among professionals regarding applying the legislation in practice...

Sue Randall, Colin Thunhurst, Gill Furze
Working with patients in their own homes gives community matrons an advantage of seeing patients in the context of their everyday lives. This allows comprehensive assessment of need with an aim of promoting health or promoting stability for people living with chronic disease. Complex issues are resolved through problem-solving and this can result in patients being maintained in their own homes and thus in reduced unplanned hospitalisation. Data were collected from participants using semi-structured interviews and audio diaries...

This article discusses our journey as a dietetic service in developing and implementing an outcomes framework utilising quality improvement methodology...

Diana Critchlow
Oral disease is common the housebound population ( Tomson et al, 2015 ). There can be a significant impact on the wellbeing of a housebound individuals ( Locker et al, 2000 ), who tend to be elderly, with poorer systemic health ( Qiu et al, 2010 ) and barriers to accessing care ( Freeman, 1999 ). Access to dental care can be limited (Fox, 2010) and prevention of oral disease is therefore paramount. Community nurses are in an excellent position to promote good oral care to the housebound patient and to support family in carers in preventing oral disease...

Richard Griffith
The role of district nurses in the effective management of pain in palliative care has been strengthened by the Misuse of Drugs (Amendment No.2) (England, Wales and Scotland) Regulations 2012 that allow district nurses who are independent or supplementary prescribers to prescribe and administer controlled drugs. However, prescribing controlled drugs brings increased responsibility and accountability for the safe management of these medicines. In this article Richard Griffith considers the principle of double effect that seeks to ensure that patients in intractable pain receive the analgesia they require to manage that pain while district nurses avoid liability and prosecution under the law of murder...

Wounds that fail to heal quickly are often encountered by community nursing staff. An important step in assisting these chronic or stalled wounds progress through healing is debridement to remove devitalised tissue, including slough and eschar, that can prevent the wound from healing. A unique wound treatment called HydroTherapy aims to provide an optimal healing environment. The first step of HydroTherapy involves HydroClean plus™, this dressing enables removal of devitalised tissue through autolytic debridement and absorption of wound fluid...

Julie Brown
Within the literature there is an accumulating body of evidence to suggest that psychological stress may have a negative impact on wound healing. This article examines the psychoneuroimmulogy theory associated with stress and acute wound healing with reference to caring for patients with surgical wounds. The evidence reviewed in this article highlights the value of understanding individual patient need for reducing stress pre and post operatively to benefit the healing process.

The development of wound management protocols and guidelines such as the T.I.M.E. acronym are useful tools to aid wound care practitioners deliver effective wound care. The tissue, infection/inflammation, moisture balance and edge of wound (T.I.M.E.) framework provides a systematic approach for the assessment and management of the majority of acute and chronic wounds. The debridement of devitalised tissue from the wound bed, the reduction in wound bioburden and effective management of wound exudate - i.e., wound bed preparation - are barriers to wound healing progression that are targeted by T...
