Event description

Description

The second in a series of three breakfast events run by the Royal College of Nursing Scotland to put issues around sustainability in health and wellbeing services 'in the spotlight'.

To deliver on the Scottish Government’s 2020 Vision, nursing teams in the community will play an increasingly central role in providing care to people across Scotland.

Community nursing teams must have the skills, knowledge and resources to be able to deliver highly complex clinical care to people in their homes and in homely setting.

These teams prevent hospital admissions by providing highly skilled clinical care at home; they help people to manage long-term, often serious, health conditions; and they also provide support where needed after people are discharged from hospital.

District Nurses in particular play a pivotal role in the coordination and involvement of other professional teams, agencies and services to ensure care is delivered at the right time, by the right person with the right skills. The diversity and complex nature of community nursing teams’ caseloads should not be underestimated.

This event will:

  • demonstrate the nature of clinical decision making in the community

  • debate what the future of community nursing looks like

  • discuss concerns around the capacity of community teams to deliver high quality care to people in light of strained budgets and the changing health and social care landscape
