Lynn Cornish
Pressure ulcers pose a significant burden to both patients and health care resources. There are an increasing number of studies that have examined the use of prophylactic dressings, and their ability to redistribute pressure and protect the skin from shear and friction damage. This literature review examines six studies conducted on this controversial subject. Brindle and Wegelin ( 2012 ; Chaiken, 2012 ; Cubit et al, 2012 ; Santamaria et al, 2012) all examined the role of dressings to prevent pressure ulcers, and Call et al (2013a ; 2013b ), conducted in vitro research into the mode of dressings...

Genevieve Abela
Maggot debridement therapy (MDT) is an effective method for debriding wounds such as leg ulcers, supporting the concept of wound bed preparation ( Dumville et al, 2009 ; Soares et al, 2009 ; Mudge et al, 2014 ). New evidence is emerging to suggest that maggots might contribute to wound healing in other ways. For example, the reduction of biofilms and disinfection of wounds ( Van Der Plas et al, 2008 ; Brown et al, 2012 ; Pritchard and Brown, 2015 ) plus regulation of protease levels ( Chambers et al, 2003 ; Van Der Plas et al, 2009a ; Van Der Plas et al, 2009b )...

The present day collection of financial and demographic challenges confronted by health and social care mean that integrated services are undoubtedly essential to sustain adequate care. However, the impact of integrated care upon healthcare staff and patients as well as new ways of working will need to be demonstrated, with collaboration and engagement throughout any transition. This paper provides an overview of the evidence relating to the delivery of effective, integrated out-of-hospital care, with a discussion of the literature...

Richard Griffith
Appearing in court is becoming an almost routine part of a district nurse's role and the prospect of appearing in court or giving evidence at fitness to practice hearings remains a daunting one. The process is still largely adversarial and cross examination is a hostile experience that must be met with professionalism and gravitas. In this article Richard Griffith highlights the principles of effective evidence giving.

Community care is at the forefront of the National Health Service reforms. Role redistribution from registered nurses to health care assistants is growing. This paper examines the challenges of upskilling community health care assistants to undertake catheterisation for uncomplicated patients in the community. Social constructivist methods facilitated reflective practice. Challenges included fears around delegation, accountability and the responsibilities involved in supporting the development of health care assistants...

As life expectancy increases so people often develop a range of conditions and disabilities in the years before death. Multimorbidity represents the most common 'disease pattern' found among the elderly and is characterised by complex interactions of co-existing diseases where a medical approach focused on a single disease does not suffice. People with dementia who also have other comorbidities do not always have their comorbid conditions managed as those without dementia which often lead to a high number of hospital admissions with longer lengths of stay and greater treatment costs...
