The RCNi Nurse Awards ceremony is a showcase of talent and achievement that lives on beyond the event. Many of this year's shortlisted entries in the Nursing Older People category are examples of practice by nurses who are unafraid of challenging established ways of working or of championing improved outcomes for older people.

Reduction in vision is not inevitable but a manageable consequence of getting older. Some physiological and disease processes associated with ageing may reduce vision and, in some cases, this reduction in vision cannot be treated. Much of it can be prevented, however. Prevention of visual loss is one of the keys to the maintenance of independence in older people. This article describes the main visual conditions associated with ageing and considers what can and should be done by the older person and their network of friends, relatives and carers to ensure that vision is maintained by the early detection and treatment of eye problems and that independence is maintained by putting strategies in place to help the person manage any untreatable vision loss...

Concerns about the complications of prolonged bed rest were raised as far back as 1947 ( Asher 1947 ). Hospital stays are associated with iatrogenic infections, medication errors, increased risk of delirium and side effects of prolonged bed rest ( Inouye and Charpentier 1996 , Covinsky et al 2011 ).

Pressure ulcers are painful, and affect patients' health, mobility and well-being. They also cost the NHS between £1.4-2.1 billion a year. Although a large proportion of pressure ulcers are avoidable, many still occur and, because pressure ulcer incidence is an indicator of care quality, it can put carers under scrutiny. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence states that adequate risk assessment of pressure ulcer development, including the role of malnutrition, improves care. Adequate nutrition is vital for the prevention of pressure ulcers and malnutrition can hinder healing when pressure ulcers have developed...

Why did you become a nurse? What might you have done otherwise? I wanted to make a positive contribution to society and have always liked to care for people. I worked as a staff nurse on acute medical wards and an intensive care unit before working for social services in older people's residential care. I returned to nursing as an infection control nurse.

Aim To consider how the older person constructs the experience of cancer pain and how this is informed by expectations and experiences. Method Nine older people with cancer were asked to keep diaries and subsequently interviewed about their experiences of living with cancer and pain. Findings Five themes were identified - better to be old than to be dying with cancer, maintaining control and independence, loss of identity in adapting and grieving for a former self, dislike of analgesia and denial of pain. The themes give a perspective on the embodied meaning of 'pain' in daily life...

Ruth Sander
Probiotics is a general term to describe the different species of healthy microbes that are usually found in our gastrointestinal tract and support our immune system. When ingested in adequate amounts, probiotics can provide health benefits to the host. Their ingestion is thought to replenish microbiota that may have been depleted from injury, medication or diet. When there is a depletion of microbiota, pathogenic bacteria can flourish and cause disease.

Ruth Sander
Atrial fibrillation is associated with an increased risk of ischaemic stroke and mortality. Guidelines recommend non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants, or novel oral anticoagulants, as first choice of drug. While they do not require the meticulous dose adjustments that are required for warfarin, a clinical evaluation of appropriate dose is still necessary. Age and chronic kidney disease in patients with atrial fibrillation increase the risk of bleeding during anti-thrombotic treatment.

Delirium is a disturbance of attention and cognition that cannot be explained by pre-existing neurocognitive disorders. It can have serious consequences, including falls, increased mortality, longer hospital stays and an increased risk of long-term cognitive impairment. Delirium may be present on admission to hospital but, where it is not, nurses should identify people at risk.
