These new resources and tools will support you whether you are already an IBD Nurse Specialist or are thinking about becoming one.
Crohn’s and Colitis UK has launched a new section on their website focusing on health professionals. It is addresses the main issues identified from their nursing campaign. Features of the new section are:
- An interactive map of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) nurse specialists across the UK. Text and videos guide people to the right support at the right time.
- Information for nurses interested in a career in IBD nursing. This includes a ‘Day in the Life’ video and nurses talking about their experiences of the job.
- Support for service development and business planning. This is aimed at NHS leaders and other health professionals, as well as nurses themselves. This section provides a step by step resource to review services and build a business case. It also includes new caseload modelling which redefines the numbers of IBD nurse specialists services required for the next decade.
