QNI launches new national survey of District Nurse team leaders
11 June 2019
Community nursing charity, The Queen’s Nursing Institute, has launched a new UK wide survey of the District Nursing workforce. The survey is the first of its kind since the publication of the QNI’s 2020 Vision Five Years On in 2014.
All countries of the UK have policy imperatives which focus on more care being delivered in peoples’ homes and communities and District Nursing services are playing a crucial role in this strategic effort.
The survey results will be analysed within the International Community Nursing Observatory (ICNO) of the QNI and will be published at the formal launch of the ICNO on 18th November 2019. It is anticipated that the survey will create the most accurate picture ever of the District Nursing service, including how it is adapting to changing technology, utilising innovative approaches to care, and managing rising demand and increased complexity in care delivery.
Dr Crystal Oldman, the QNI’s chief executive commented, ‘I would strongly encourage all District Nurse team leaders across the UK to complete the survey. Your views and experiences are of vital importance in helping the QNI to understand the current challenges in the District Nursing service and will provide the data needed to determine what new investment and support can be given to strengthen services in future.’
The survey can be completed online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/QNIUKDNTLS2019 and remains open until 15th July 2019.
All data will be treated anonymously and will comply with General Data Protection Regulations.
