We are pleased to see her interest in older adults with multimorbidity and advancing models of care and care coordination for this growing population group. Continue Reading View all Letters There are 10 district nursing teams in the borough and the service operates seven days a week. A representative from each team attends a monthly meeting, along with other health professionals involved in end of life care, such as the specialist palliative care team and community matrons. The group ensures care is standardised across the borough, discusses issues or initiatives, and implements changes.
It is routine practice to pre-empt the need for specialist equipment and anticipatory medication in end of life care and we felt the same approach should be taken with bladder management. This would empower nursing staff to provide the best possible care to patients and their families. The group was unable to find any reference to end of life catheterisation in trust policies, so a urinary catheterisation consent form was devised.
This included the rationale for end of life catheterisation, patient identification details, and a statement for the GP to sign giving permission to catheterise the patient if required and the trust policy on indwelling catheters in end of life care Box 2. End of life continence care is an essential part of ensuring comfort and dignity. Management of urinary problems at the end of life often involves the containment of incontinence and the management of urinary retention.
It was then distributed among the group and all district nursing teams. It is now standard practice to discuss the consent form with the patient and GP when discussing anticipatory medicines and specialist equipment. The urinary catheterisation consent form is designed to support community nursing staff in planning and implementing strategies in end of life bladder management. The tool has also helped promote discussion between patients, nurses and GPs. The consent form received positive feedback from community nursing staff and GPs, especially the twilight nursing team who see patients up to midnight.
