A survey was conducted across current higher surgical trainees to review this.

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...
District nursing has a long history as a service that provides care for patients in their home environment. Demographic changes and a need to optimise out of hospital care has impacted on the acuity of patients supported and the complexity of caseload management. District nurses, in order to effectively manage such increased demands on their busy service, need to possess excellent, assertive case management skills. This study explores and evaluates the impact of the Specialist Practice Qualification in dist...

Mycobacterium ulcerans infection, commonly known as Buruli ulcer (BU), is a debilitating neglected tropical disease. Its management remains complex and has three main components: antibiotic treatment combining rifampicin and streptomycin for 56 days, wound dressings and skin grafts for large ulcerations, and physical therapy to prevent functional limitations after care. In Benin, BU patient care is being integrated into the government health system. In this paper, we report on an innovative pilot program de...
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 ).

Neonatal mortality is a significant problem in many low-resource countries, yet for every death there are many more newborns who suffer a life-threatening complication but survive. These "near-misses" are not well defined, nor are they well understood. This study sought to explore how health care providers at three tertiary care centers in Ghana (each with neonatal intensive care units (NICUs)) understand the term "near-miss." Eighteen providers from the NICUs at three teaching hospitals in Ghana (Korle Bu ...
Two cases of fraud by district nurses demonstrate that district nurses need to be familiar with the behaviour that amounts to fraudulent activity, so they are able to protect NHS assets and take appropriate action to minimise the loss of funds needed for patient care and treatment. Fraud costs the NHS billions of pounds each year and takes money away from front-line services. The Fraud Act 2006 has made the offence clearer and easier to prosecute. Offences can range from false representation about qualifica...
