Resources for nurses who work with carers

The Queen’s Nursing Institute has launched two new resources to help community nurses give support to carers.

The new resources for school and general practice nurses have been developed following the success of the first carers resource that the QNI developed for district nurses last year. The resources contain case studies and hypothetical scenarios to aid learning, and e-workbooks so that nurses can record their learning as they use the resources.

Subjects covered include safeguarding, referral, burden of care, cultural and social context, personal and professional development, boundaries of practice, multi-disciplinary working, and ethical and legal responsibilities. They cover aspects of mental health, physical health, learning disabilities and dementia. The school nurses’ module is focused specifically on supporting young carers.
