Research seminar: Care outside of hospitals – understanding the issues for the district nursing workforce

The health policy ambition in England, like many countries, is to provide more health care in primary care and reduce unplanned hospital admissions, particularly for older adults with long term conditions. This has resulted in new services developed both in primary care and social care and also between these and hospital services.

District nursing services are one service that has always primarily focused on providing nursing care and treatment for older adults outside of hospital. In 2013 the Department of Health England published a 'Vision for District Nursing' with calls for local areas to develop district nursing services to meet the current and future health needs of local people'.

This presentation draws on a number of studies conducted across England in the last decade for the Department of Health England together with more recent data to explore the issues for developing a district nursing workforce to respond to the policy and health service commissioning challenges.

This is a lunchtime seminar so please feel free to bring your lunch with you.

If you would like to come along and find out more about this study, please RSVP to Nikita Monteiro at  by Monday 9 June 2014.

If you are interested in presenting a future research seminar, please contact Gill Mein.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
