Thinking Nurse

This blog will reflect my interests in learning disabilities, nursing, nursing theory, philosophy and politics and my general interests in the arts and literature. (Nursing is an art as well as a science!) Philosophy and nursing have been intrinsically linked since the days of Socrates, his mother was a midwife, and taught him everything he knew!

What has Learning Disability Nursing Got To Do With It?

This is another report from the 'positive choices' conference, continuing from the reports I made here: Bob Gates and Jason Grundy and here:PCP in Northern Ireland.

This time I am writing about Ruth Northway's speech 'But What Has Learning Disability Nursing Got to Do With It?'

Ruth Northway is editor of the RCN publication 'Learning Disability Practice'.
Like Bob Gates, she looked at learning disability nursing from the perspectives of past, present and future. Learning Disability Professionals, she said, became almost 'accidentally' part of the nursing profession, and the existence of learning disability nursing has been continually challenged, for example in publications like the Jay and Briggs reports.

This was a symptom perhaps of a lack of understanding of the role of the learning disability nurse.

LD Nurses have a position that is influenced by the views, wishes and needs of clients, by the views wishes and needs of families, by a changing professional context, by changing social policies and by changing models of service provision. Against such a background, one of the key attributes of the profession has been flexibility, indeed, according to Mitchell (2003) the survival of learning disability nursing 'depends on the profession's continued ability to change in line with government policy.' creativity and flexibility are part of the identity of the learning disabilty nurse (Turnbull 2004)

What is important however, is that LD Nurses should also be drivers of change, as well as simply responding to it. We need to be looking to the changing needs of the community of people with learning disabilities, for example the growing number of young people with profound and multiple disabilities, and the rise in the number of elderly clients, with even more elderly carers.

She pointed out there was a need for the development of practice, education and research to reflect such changing needs, in partnership with people with learning disabilities at individual, group and population levels.

She cited Kim (2005), Learning Disability Nurses need 'VIP' - Vision, Integrity and Passion.

I just came across your blog about nursing boards and wanted to drop you a note telling you how impressed I was with the information you have posted here. I also have a web site about nursing boards so I know what I'm talking about when I say your site is top-notch! Keep up the great work, you are providing a great resource on the Internet here! If you get a chance, please stop by nursing boards
