Townsend A (2014) Patients’ views on a nurse-led prostate clinic. Nursing Times; 110: 9, 22-23.

 

Abstract:

“Nurse-led clinics are being established in a number of specialties including urology. Men attending a nurse-led clinic for suspected prostate cancer were surveyed to investigate their perception of and satisfaction with a nurse-led clinic and to establish whether this model of care met expectations.

“The results showed that patients were satisfied with the service. This adds to the growing body of evidence supporting nurse-led services.”

 

What do you think?

  • How do patients feel about attending nurse-led, rather than consultant-led, services?
  • What are the advantages and disadvatages of developing nurse-led services

    I have no problem with it so long as I have seen the consultant first.

  • I would like a medical consultation along the line depending on the case. However i have growing concerns when nurses are doing advanced training and they ask other appropriately qualified nurses to do their research papers/case notes etc for submitting. Those nurses who do the work for them should be struck off the register. Also their mentor/supervisor should not be a friend or relative but independant
