An exciting opportunity to work as part of the multi professional team within the community environment, co-ordinating and delegating individual patient care by working across boundaries within Secondary and Social Care settings. The Clinical Nurse Lead role uses advanced clinical skills and expert knowledge to assess diagnose and treat the physical and psycho/social needs of a patient group, instigating therapeutic treatments based on best available evidence in order to improve health outcomes. The role is also that of a clinical lead within an integrated team, providing clinical leadership to the community nursing teams through clinical advice and support in caseload management. Working with the multi disciplinary team you will use skills and clinical knowledge to identify subtle changes in an individual's condition and take appropriate action to prevent exacerbation of disease wherever possible, and if not manage that exacerbation. You will be able to challenge professional and organisational boundaries, identifying areas for skill/knowledge development and apply these to practice to provide continuity and high quality patient centred health care.
