Why support this important educational initiative?
“43% of nursing teams reported that they did not feel the right number of appropriately qualified and trained staff were in place to meet the needs of patients. 15% of GPNs reported that they felt unprepared for all areas of GP nursing….the need for more preparation included areas such as chronic disease management including diabetes, COPD and spirometry.”

“It is imperative, however, that we do not take on roles or responsibilities that are beyond our capability. To practice safely and effectively, we must ensure we are adequately trained, that sufficient time is allowed to perform the role and that appropriate support is available, if required.”
Jane Diggle, Journal of Diabetes Nursing
In 2005, 65% of patients aged 65 and over had two or more long-term conditions, with some as many as 5 or 6. The estimate is that 75% of people above the age of 75 are suffering from chronic disease, with incidence in people over 65 expected to double by 2030.*
