Nurse-led projects to improve the health of people with learning disabilities
The QNI has announced a new opportunity for nurse-led projects in the community starting in 2020.
Thanks to funding from the Burdett Trust for Nursing, the QNI will fund ten nurse-led projects in the community focused on improving the health, care, or wellbeing for people with a learning disability.
Each project will receive up to £5000 and a year-long programme of support from QNI staff, including workshops and site visit.
- The project must focus on any issue related to improving the health, care, and wellbeing for people with a learning disability.
- The project must be led by a nurse working directly with people with a learning disability in clinical practice in a community or primary care setting in an organisation based in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
