Clinical nurse specialist and advanced nurse practitioner roles in older persons nursing
National Council for the Professional Developement of Nursing and Midwifery
This position paper aims to provide guidance to care of older person’s services and those services which provide care for older persons, who are considering the introduction of such posts by addressing the implications of specialist and advanced nursing practice which relate specifically to care of older persons. The national focus is on the development of the continuum of community services to enable older people to live in their own community in dignity and independence for as long as possible, to restore those who become ill or dependent to as independent a life as possible in their own homes and to provide high quality residential care for older people who can no longer be maintained in independence and dignity at home (DoHC 2000, HSE 2006). The Health Service Executive (HSE) has established an expert advisory group for older persons which will act as a primary source of operational policy and strategic advice in addition to driving integration across the HSE.
