Louise Rooney, Garry Cooper-Stanton, Jayne Cave-Senior
Compression therapy is the main method used within the treatment and management of lymphoedema and chronic oedema. The increasing prevalence of the condition, which has multiple causes, such as genetic factors, age and external factors, require the effective management of the condition, and to enhance the management methods used to contain the condition. The use of exercise alongside the mainstay method of treatment (compression therapy) has been an underutilised area. The application of a structured exercise programme in conjunction with multi-layer lymphoedema bandaging combined with an adjustable velcro wrap based systems led to a decrease in limb volume in one case study...

Richard Griffith
Two NHS workers were recently disciplined after inappropriately accessing the records of the singer Ed Sheeran who had required treatment for a fractured wrist and elbow after falling from his bicycle ( Embury-Dennis 2018 ). The increasingly common use of electronic records across the NHS now allows nurses, including district nurses, to access a large archive of patient information that was much more difficult to obtain when records were manually held paper records. There have been several instances where curiosity and, occasionally, more malicious reasons have led district nurses and others to access those records and read the notes of high profile patients or persons known to them...

Charlene Young, Hilary Thompson
A district nurse is an expert generalist practitioner who uses advanced clinical skills and knowledge to fulfil an ever-evolving role. The district nurse is accountable for the care planning, coordination and management of people with multi-faceted and intricate health care needs. In addition, an interprofessional approach to health and social care is required to enable the district nurse to co-ordinate care and enable patients to be cared for and remain within their homes. As the demand on primary and community services increases, care is further enriched by working in partnership with families, carers and voluntary service providers...

Laura Dixon, Hilary Thompson
District nurses require a vast array of skills to enable effective care delivery for patients living with a diagnosis of dementia in the community setting. Complex care needs provide challenges for the provision and delivery of district nursing services, which must be overcome to provide patientcentred care. Demographic and financial constraints hamper service delivery and the availability of services; however, district nurses are required to use their problem solving skills and tacit knowledge to deal with these challenges...

Deborah Duncan, Abigail Ashby
Breathlessness or dyspnoea is a subjective experience that can be described as an unpleasant or uncomfortable awareness of breathing. It is a subjective experience for patients and often they learn to adapt to the limitations caused by their condition, which makes their breathlessness less apparent to others. Breathlessness can be subdivided in the context of chronic refractory breathlessness, such as acute breathlessness, which is either an episodic breathlessness or breathlessness crisis. Chronic refractory breathlessness is defined as breathlessness at rest or on minimal exertion that will persist chronically despite optimal treatment of the underlying causative factors...

Richard Griffith
A Do Not Attempt Resuscitation notice (DNACPR) is an important mechanism for avoiding inappropriate CRP attempts, and protects district nurses and others from allegations of ill treatment or wilful neglect. The DNACPR notice must be discussed with the patient or their relatives, before placed on file ( Tracey v Cambridge Uni Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and others [2014] ; Winspear v City Hospitals Sunderland NHSFT [2015] ). In this article Richard Griffith set out the steps district nurses must take to ensure that a DNACPR notice is lawful...

Drew Payne
This article looks at practical ways to support patients with oral medication compliance in their own homes. It addresses the importance of assessing why the patient needs support, the importance of a medication review and strategies and tools to aid patient compliance, alongside instances where a nurse can aid patient's relatives and carers can provide medication instead of a nurse.

Celine Grundy, Helen Wheeler
District Nursing (DN) caseloads are increasingly unwieldy. ( Queen's Nursing Institute, 2016 ). They can also be difficult to manage due to the unpredictability and increasing complexity of the patient's needs. It is an essential component of DN teams that caseloads are reviewed on a regular basis to support the delivery of efficient, effective and safe patient care. This article illustrates how a caseload review tool was developed, which would standardise the process in all teams, analyse and monitor the outcomes, identify any trends and themes and give assurance that DN caseloads were productive and safe...
