Sorry if my answer was unclear. Yes I am using Flinders in my assessments, I was a District Nurse until last year when I became a Urology CNS. I was inspired to use the Flinders assessments after completing the Life Long Conditions paper at Massey last year
Ah, thanks for explaining. How's it going using Flinders? How many assessments do you do per month? What's working, what's not?? Really interested to hear people's stories from around the country.
The assessments are a little up and down at present, I am doing a lot of continence assessments in this new role and am only just beginning to see the patients for their second visit so probably too early to tell but in District Nursing I was able to use my adapted version very successfully, focusing on the patients easily obtainable goals as guidence, I love the concept, its very user friendly for long term management, I have not been able to use it for out patients as the visits are too intemittant to get consistancy, will keep you posted with the continence group!
Hope this helps you
