Summary of "Caseload management: a district nursing challenge."

The district nurse is accountable for the standard of nursing care that is delivered by the team they lead. One of the key challenges in ensuring the provision of a high standard of care is effective caseload management, and caseload management is a core component of the district nursing role. This article highlights the strategic drivers behind community care, outlines the challenges that impact effective caseload management and discusses why effective caseload management is significant in the delivery of community care. It also explores the delegation of workload, triaging referrals, caseload analysis and clinical supervision as methods that the district nurse can use to overcome and manage the challenges that caseload management can present.
