The question is whether the RCN document is of value to the nurse-led clinic.
The answer is simply that they are of clear value to those calling themselves a
nurse practitioner, and may offer guidance to others running nurse-led clinics.

In recent years there has been a huge growth in nurse-led clinics within hospital outpatient departments, general practitioner surgeries and health centres. The government has endorsed the use of such clinics as a way for the public to access specialist health care and treatment more quickly and also as an effective way to manage chronic ill health. However, there is a lack of uniform structure in educational preparation for nurses interested in taking up nurse-led practice and a dearth of literature offering practical guidance. This text provides a much-needed overview of this new arena for nursing and includes case studies from practitioners running nurse-led clinics. Topics covered include: * Setting up a clinic * Public protection issues * Nurse education * Managing medicines * Effectiveness and evaluation. The text allows the reader to explore key practice issues which directly affect the quality of service provided. It will be an invaluable handbook for nurses directly involved in running clinics, for those responsible for the provision of nurse-led services and for nurse educators.

Patients are discharged from Stroke Unit following a stroke, given advice regarding secondary prevention and the leaflet to attend stroke drop-in sessions. Drop-in sessions are held once a month where patients attend as often as they need to and get the advice which is relevant to them. This can range from a simple blood pressure check to therapists giving specific advise on exercises and positioning as well as doctors recommending changes in medication if necessary.A member of the Stroke Association is present who can advise on support availible through their service, especially regarding communication.This is also a good oppurunity to have a social interaction with other stroke patients and share experiences.Patients get seen in 6 month follow-up clinic and they are already aware of what they need to do in order to reduce they risk of a further stroke.In the meantime they are actively participating in stroke prevention and are aware of the importance of blood pressure control.

Baccalaureate nursing programs across California (CA) are required by the state board of nursing to provide theory of public health and applied clinical learning to meet the requirements of the state's public health nurse (PHN) certification. Students in Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs are expected to enter the workforce prepared to address population health needs that synthesize community-based assessment and understand epidemiologic approaches to strategize interventions in diverse populations at the local, state and national levels. To adequately prepare nurses for true population health practice, clinical experiences need to be in appropriate settings where they can apply theory to practice and experience interacting with vulnerable patient populations. Opportunities for interprofessional collaboration and multi-sector system partnerships are essential to preparing BSN graduates for the workforce. Give the growing trends in nursing education to meet the Institute of Medicine recommendations to prepare thirty percent more nursing graduates with BSN as the point of entry to practice by 2020, the competition for clinical placements has accelerated. Parallel to this problem is a growing homeless population across CA. The county of San Diego has become the fourth-largest homeless population in the United States (U.S.), growing at a nearly 10% increase annually. This is a local crisis requiring cooperation at all levels of public and private sectors to unite and develop innovative solutions to address the humanitarian needs of those affected. Preparing nurses who understand the historical, ethical and unique healthcare needs of this population is imperative to solving this urgent situation. An innovative approach to meeting the needs of BSN students and individuals experiencing homelessness with unmet healthcare needs is to provide nurse-led pop-up clinics within the homeless community of San Diego. This upstream approach brings students to the patients where they are. Students gain intimate experiences with diverse patients in community-based settings working alongside community partners to develop public health skills. This authentic immersive experience not only meets the competency requirements for the CA PHN certification but serves to support the multi-disciplinary actions needed to address the homeless crisis in San Diego. This paper outlines the development and implementation of a pop-up clinic model led by Point Loma Nazarene University School of Nursing beginning in 2019.

Practice Nurses play an important and pivotal role in healthcare providing a range of interventions and services to patients in General Practice and Primary Care settings. While most Practice Nurses work in GP surgeries and doctor led clinics, others are working as autonomous practitioners in community practices and nurse led centres. Practice Nurses are presented with an ever increasing range of conditions and patient needs as the role is constantly changing and evolving. The extended roles and range of clinical skills which may be provided by a Practice Nurse depend on the needs of the patient and the qualifications, skills, competencies and scope of practice of each individual Practice Nurse (NMBI, 2015). Practice Nurses have a responsibility to ensure that they are suitably qualified, skilled and competent in carrying out each clinical procedure and intervention that they undertake. Developing guidelines for clinical practice is an important part of the Practice Nurse role, but the task of researching, developing and producing guidelines is time-consuming, and it can be difficult to find the information required as and when needed. Practice Nursing: Clinical Guidelines and Procedures in Practice written by a Practice Nurse, and based on local and national guidelines, provides a comprehensive overview and a step by step guide for nurses carrying out a wide range of clinical procedures in practice. The book contains over 100 clinical guidelines and procedures with illustrations, tables, charts and diagrams. In producing these clinical guidelines, the author hopes that this book will prove useful as a resource and reference guide for other nurses in general practice and primary care settings.
