A profile of learning disability nurses.


Profiling exercises provide vital data for effective and efficient deployment of resources and for monitoring the development of services. A survey, focusing solely on community nurses for people with learning disabilities in Northern Ireland, was carried out in 1992. The findings showed, among other things, a higher caseload per nurse than the UK average. While more than half the workforce had multiple qualifications there was a lack of clinical specialist training.
