Caring for people with liver disease: a competence framework

This framework, produced jointly with NHS Liver Care is aimed at all nursing staff working in all clinical settings across primary, secondary and tertiary care.

It recognises that nursing staff have a key role in health promotion and aims to empower them to identify the signs and risk factors of liver disease, make brief interventions and signpost patients to support services. It also supports staff to build their levels of competence throughout their career trajectories. The competences described are cross-referenced to the NHS knowledge skills framework to help to embed the framework in practice.
