Lower limb care: making national recommendations a reality

24 February 2023 10:15 - 10:55

This session will demonstrate that specialist nurses can have a positive impact on patient care by ensuring they lead on organisational change and adoption of current evidence-based practice including national recommendations.

A quality improvement project carried out in an East London community trust has shown that by reviewing the evidence, simplifying best practice and empowering community nurses to make safe clinical decisions can save time and resources whilst achieving improved outcomes for patients with lower limb wounds.
