Emma Gardner
There are a number factors that need to be considered when managing frail older people with multiple health problems. Inappropriate polypharmacy and poor adherence, particularly in older adults, is associated with negative health outcomes. In addition to assessing the patient's current symptoms and health status, it is therefore important to consider which medications patients are prescribed, whether they are appropriate and whether they are being taken as prescribed. This case study aims to increase awareness of poor adherence to medication in the older adult population...

Mandy McKendry, Helen Green
Service users can benefit in a variety of ways from a personalised approach to care. This service improvement project aimed to improve personalisation for patients being cared for by a community nursing team in the south of England. A plan, study, do, act (PDSA) approach to the project was undertaken with a community nursing team. Both quantitative and qualitative data showed improvement once the focus on personalisation had been improved. Patient and staff satisfaction scores improved and a documentation audit showed the focus on personalisation had increased...

Tobias Bertsch
This prospective, single-centre, observational study set out to evaluate the clinical performance and safety of JOBST Relax®, a custom-made compression garment, when worn by a series of patients with lymphoedema during resting hours and at night. Patients were recruited after undergoing complete decongestive therapy (CDT) and wore the night-time compression garment for 21 days as part of their compression therapy regimen. Questionnaires were used to capture their views on parameters such as the garment's comfort, ease of use, fit, ability to avoid excessive heat and perspiration, its effect on their quality of life and their overall satisfaction with it...

Richard Griffith
A key justification for introducing a law that regulates decision-making for those who are unable to make choices because of incapacity, was to allow people to prepare for future incapacity, by choosing people they trust to make those decisions on their behalf. In England and Wales, the Mental Capacity Act 2005 provides the opportunity for adults to do this through the use of a lasting power of attorney (Mental Capacity Act 2005, sections 9-14). In this article, Richard Griffith considers lasting powers of attorney for health and care and their impact on district nurse practice...

Bruce Harper-McDonald, Fiona Baguley
This systematic literature review aims to identify and appraise current evidence to establish if caseload profiling (CP) provides a strategy to support district nurses to evidence and manage increasingly complex caseloads. A total of 17 studies where thematically synthesised and recurrent themes were identified and summarised under the headings of: defining caseload profiling; caseload profiling in the context of caseload management; workload analysis and its relationship to caseload profiling; potential impact of caseload profiling; and potential barriers to caseload profiling...

Mandy Waldon
Frailty is a term that presents many difficulties for policy makers and clinicians due to the lack of consensus in defining frailty in a way that meets the needs of older people. A principle-based concept analysis was used to examine the scientific literature across four perspectives: medicine, nursing, social sciences, and occupational and physiotherapy. The purpose was to identify the conceptual components of frailty as revealed by analysis of the literature, and to develop a theoretical definition of frailty...

Jacqui Carr, Rachel Taylor, Margaret Pitt
First year student nurses are increasingly undertaking their first placement with community nurses. The importance of how this initial learning experience is introduced by the higher education institution, as well as how the student is welcomed and integrated into the community nursing team, cannot be underestimated. Following positive anonymous feedback from students, which indicated that they had benefitted from the introduction, welcome and integration they experienced, the university and mentors reviewed how this had been done to identify good practice to share with colleagues...

Pioneering advances have been made in Internet of Things technologies (IoT) in healthcare. This article describes the development and testing of a bespoke IoT system for dementia care. Technology integrated health management (TIHM) for dementia is part of the NHS England National Test Bed Programme and has involved trailing the deployment of network enabled devices combined with artificial intelligence to improve outcomes for people with dementia and their carers. TIHM uses machine learning and complex algorithms to detect and predict early signs of ill health...

An increasing number of people require insulin to manage their diabetes, many of them in supported environments such as residential care homes. Community nursing teams are likely to have a growing caseload of care home residents who require diabetes care, including insulin injections, and many unregistered practitioners are being asked to take on this role. If community nurse leads, matrons, frailty teams and pharmacy teams work together to provide training to staff in care homes (particularly unregistered practitioners), diabetes care can be improved...

Richard Griffith
District nurses are increasingly required to manage the physical health needs of patients who misuse substances or have mental health problems. Some patients have a mental health crisis in the community and come to the attention of the police. Concern over the use of police powers to detain people in a mental health crisis and in particular the use police cells as a place of safety has led to changes in the law. In this article the author updates district nurses on the amendments to police powers under the Mental Health Act 1983 introduced by the Policing and Crime Act 2017, part 4 chapter 4 designed to better manage those people experiencing a mental health crisis...
