Enhancing our workforce: our people and teams: Exploring the way forward for district nursing – innovative models and collaborative working with PCNs

10 Oct 2019
NAPC Primary Care Theatre

District nurses are vital to enabling people to live as healthily and independently as possible while reducing the need for hospital care. This session looks at district nursing within primary care networks and asks what new primary care networks can learn from some of the approaches taken to integrating district nursing in primary care homes where strong relationships between primary care and district nursing have been been built.There will be a practical focus as both Freshney Pelham Primary Care Home and Herefordshire Primary Care Home share the work their district nursing teams have been doing to become key integrated parts of the primary care home with a fresh approach to managing their patients and new technologies enabling them to do things differently. But in other areas challenges remain where relationships and working relationships vary in terms of governance, funding and culture – the session will also explore how these can be overcome and how they can provide proactive personalised care particularly for people with long term conditions.
