Cath Williams
It is estimated that over 90 000 people in the UK community live with an indwelling catheter ( Wilson, 2016 ). It is essential that a lubricating gel is used during catheterisation, as this helps to reduce the risk of pain, trauma and infection ( Loveday et al, 2014 ; National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, 2012 ). Chlorhexidine is an antiseptic contained in many catheterisation gels. Evidence demonstrates that increasing numbers of patients are experiencing hypersensitivity reactions to this ingredient ( Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, 2014 )...

The case study explores how the expansion of the health services during the interwar period impacted upon the status of district nursing and examines how being a voluntary service shaped district nursing associations. A range of primary sources were used; the Association Annual Reports, the Medical Officer for Health Annual Reports for the Borough of Chelsea, the Ministry of Health records, the archives of the Queen's Nursing Institute (QNI) and the Borough of Chelsea Council Minutes. The Medical Officer for Health Reports and the Council minutes identify efforts to improve environmental factors that impacted upon health...

The Chief Coroner has issued new guidance in relation to death where the person is subject to a deprivation of liberty safeguards standard authorisation ( Chief Coroner, 2017 ). In this article, Richard Griffith discusses the impact of the Police and Crime Act 2017, section 178 on the need to report deaths of patients' subject to a deprivation of liberty safeguards standard authorisation to the coroner.

The rise in life expectancy requires strategies to enable healthy ageing and the promotion of a high quality of life in old age. Poor mental health including depression and social isolation can blight older people's lives. Despite the positive benefits of physical activity for both mental and physical health, only a minority of those over 65 years are attaining the recommended levels of physical activity. The evidence relating to the benefits of pet dogs as promoters of wellbeing is set out in this article, although meeting their care needs may place an additional strain on an older person and/or their carer who has limited resources and physical capabilities...

Insight into risks concerning older adults living independently from their own perspective and their care provider's perspective is essential to address issues that may threaten their independent living. The most often mentioned perceived risks by older adults and their care providers in different regions in the Netherlands were: loneliness, falls, budget cuts in Dutch long-term care and not being able to call for help. The different perspectives of the respondents show a wide variety in risks, but also some similarities...

It has been found that many organisations still fail to meet the basic rights of those in their care, in terms of access to food, drink and support when they need it. In acknowledgment that food service in hospitals must be given a higher priority, and be recognised as an integral part of the patient's treatment and care, Irish hospitals must now have a system to evaluate the nutritional and hydrational care for patients admitted to hospital. The purpose of this audit was to examine the level of mealtime support available to patients during the main mealtime service in our hospital...

The aim of this article is to provide an overview of what parenteral nutrition (PN) is and when its use is required. It will describe the process of nutritional assessment, and considerations when choosing venous access. The different approaches to provision of PN solutions in hospital will be discussed. Catheter-related and metabolic complications can occur during delivery of PN; there will be a discussion of the different types of complications and how these can be avoided or minimised. Finally, the pivotal role of the nurse in the assessment and ongoing care of patients who require PN will be highlighted, including skills required to administer PN safely...

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a relatively rare degenerative disorder. Its impacts are manifested in progressive loss of motor function and often accompanied by wider non-motor changes. Swallowing and speech abilities are frequently severely impaired. Effective management of dysphagia (swallowing difficulty) symptoms and nutritional care requires a holistic multidisciplinary approach. Care must be patient focused, facilitate patient decision making, and support planning towards end of life care. This article discusses the challenges of providing effective nutritional care to people living with motor neurone disease who have dysphagia...
