Summary:
Community matrons are central to the Government’s strategy on the management of longterm conditions, but this is a new role and there has been concern and confusion among nurses, especially concerning interaction with specialist nurses. The aim of this symposium
was to debate the roles of the community matron and specialist nurse in the management of long-term neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and multiple sclerosis (MS).
Sclerosis Society and the Parkinson’s Disease Society of the United Kingdom.""My nurse is a brilliant source of help, for
information, referrals, directing me to support.
Just knowing she’s there on the end of the phone,
if need be is reassurance. It helps me cope from
day to day” Nigel Hudson with reference to his PD Nurse Specialist
Reviewer's comments on the document:
These aims will be achieved through a new model of care that aims to empower and inform patients, and to create prepared and proactive health and social care teams. The process of change is beginning in the infrastructure of health and social care, where decision support
tools and clinical information systems are being used to support the care-delivery system.
Case management and disease management is central, but supported self-care and the promotion of better public health are also key contributors to the delivery of care.This is very close to our""" Heppy"" project aims:to find the best ways in assiostance for patients.
