This NAO report examines the reorganisation of neonatal services in England, and has set out a number of facts in regard of baby births. In 2006, 635,748 babies were born in England, with 62,471 babies, approximately 10% of all births admitted to neonatal units. Babies require neonatal care because they are premature, have a low birth weight or suffer from illness or a condition, such as a heart defect. The NAO also states that there is a trend in low weight babies increasing in the UK and other developed countries. Premature babies are the result of a number of factors, including maternal age, obesity, smoking, ethnic origin, deprivation and assisted conception such as IVF. Also, the number of women giving birth at 40 years of age or more has more than doubled since 1986. The NAO has set out a number of findings and recommendations, including: that there is a widespread support for neonatal services to be delivered through managed clinical networks, but these networks have evolved at different rates; most clinical networks have made progress in reducing long-distance transfers, but only half provide specialist transport services 24 hours a day, seven days a week; that there has been an improvement in communication between clinical networks; that there are still capacity problems that undermine the effectiveness and efficiency of neonatal care, and that this is often due to a shortage of nurses; that a greater account should be taken of parent's needs when neonatal care in required, such as communication with medical staff, information about the babies' care and accommodation for the parents; the costs of neonatal services are not fully understood, and there is a mismatch between costs and charges.

Neonatal services provide care to babies born prematurely or with an illness or condition which requires specialist care. Over the last 20 years, neonatal services have undergone substantial organisational and technological changes whilst remaining a challenging and innovative area of medicine. Following a 2003 review of neonatal services, the 180 neonatal units based in the English National Health Service and Foundation Trusts were organised into 23 geographical, managed clinical networks. Demand for neonatal care has risen year on year. In 200-07, around 60,000 babies (roughly one in ten births) were admitted to neonatal units, at a cost to the NHS of some £420 million. The networks have developed at different rates and two areas have yet to establish a formal managed network. Networks have helped improve communication and co-ordination between units and have made progress in reducing the number of times babies have to be transferred long distance to obtain the necessary level of care, but there has been less progress on a key review recommendation for networks to re-designate units to ensure that the supply of intensive, intermediate and special care matches demand. The NHS still has limited data on patient outcomes, other than mortality rates which show unexplained variations between networks. Constraints in capacity mean that the Department of Health is still struggling to meet the demand for neonatal services, and problems over recruiting, retaining and training the staff required to deliver the service remains a major challenge. Financial management at the unit level needs to be improved. Neonatal units have a poor understanding of the costs of running their unit and there are differences in how units' determine their charge for a cot day with wide variations in charges between similar types of unit.

An introduction to the ethical and legal dilemmas in nursing practice, this text is designed to provoke the nurse to reflect on the nature of his or her professional obligations and future practice. The authors firstly familiarise the reader with the basic principles of ethical debate and the overall structure of the legal system as it effects nurses. They then address the fundamental dilemmas of nursing practice, such as whether or not paternalism can ever be justified, if patients have the right to die, and what a nurse's response should be to poor professional practice by colleagues. The book aims to enhance the reader's understanding of the issues, and to educate nurses to develop their own skills of reasoning and judgement.

It is reasonable to expect that most people will live a relatively healthy life as they age, with their dignity intact and rights guaranteed. For many, however, reality may be quite different: the findings of key reports highlight the need to raise awareness of the failures in health and social care systems to safeguard vulnerable older people. In this important text, a team of expert authors brings the focus to how legislation, ethics and national policy can be applied to the context of protecting 'at risk' older adults. Clear and accessible, the book will improve nurses' skills in safeguarding vulnerable older people, aided by the use of such helpful features as: • Detailed case studies to link theory with practice • Explicit 'Thinking Points' to encourage readers to reflect on how law, policy and ethics can be applied to their own practice • In-depth discussion of statutory and case law, and analysis of relevant Serious Case Reviews An essential read for students and qualified nurses alike, this text provides the reader with a solid foundation for clinical decision-making and safeguarding vulnerable older people, as well as a forum for discussion and reflection.

Winner of an AJN Book of the Year Award! Named an Outstanding Academic Title for 2007 by Choice! "Well organized, extensively referenced, and illustrated with figures/tables, this work represents a unique, multipurpose, interdisciplinary approach to elder care...Highly recommended." --CHOICE Based on the concept that vulnerability in the older populace encompasses those who are at increased risk for physical and psychosocial health problems, this book takes a closer look at vulnerability and how it affects five specific populations within the elderly: Those incarcerated in prisons The homeless Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people Those who are HIV positive or living with AIDS The frail Both physical and psychosocial health care issues and needs are addressed as well as interventions and resources that can be implemented to care for these very specific populations and their requirements for successful physical and mental health care. The unique challenges of hospice care in prisons; the lack of services that cater to homeless older people; and the overall attitude towards helping elderly gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender people are some of the increasingly important issues covered. Unique features include: The latest research and theoretical approaches are summarized to give health professionals a concise picture of health care needs of these older adults Themes of interdisciplinary approach to care, cultural considerations, and neglect and abuse are integrated throughout Strategies and resources for caring for older adults with dementia are discussed for each vulnerable population

Working with Vulnerable Groups

Working with Vulnerable Groups

Working with Vulnerable Groups challenges GPs to consider that all patients are not equal in terms of need, and that therefore GPs may have greater responsibilities to some patients than to others. Designed to resolve this tension in the work of GPs, the book presents chapters on the homeless, Travelling communities, refugees and asylum seekers, sexual orientation and transgendered people, patients in secure environments, older people, patients with intellectual disabilities, and adolescents. Working with Vulnerable Groups defines social exclusion and health inequalities, and discusses how GPs can deliver care to their disadvantaged patients. The book ends with a chapter that discusses the imminent organisational and ethical challenges caused by changes in the NHS. GPs and other members of the primary care team will find this book invaluable in helping their most vulnerable patients. Why is it needed? This book will make it easier for all doctors to engage in the care of those patients who need care most and to realise the intense rewards both personal and professional that can result. This book is also for those who feel that working in primary care despite all its rigours and stresses is a privilege. If like the chapter authors you wish to better help those presenting in primary care as vulnerable but feel as if you sometimes lack the necessary knowledge and skills required, then this book is for you. It aims to guide the reader towards a better understanding of a variety of vulnerable groups so that the care we offer may be more tailored to their needs. This will allow the reader to offer help that is more useful and effective than that offered by the well-motivated generic practitioner.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Sociology - Gender Studies, grade: 2:2, National University of Science & Technology Zimbabwe (National University of Science and Technology), course: Masters Degree in Disaster Management, language: English, abstract: This study was carried out against the background of HIV/AIDS having caused an orphan care crisis in Zimbabwe, with the brunt of care falling on the elderly who are themselves weak and frail due to age and socio-economic challenges. This burden fell on mainly the grandmothers who have had to bear the burden of caring for large numbers of orphaned grandchildren, with little or no support from the surviving members of the extended family or other sections of the community and government. They faced a lot of challenges in their new care giving role which included lack of food, lack of money to pay for school fees for the orphans, etc, these challenges added on top of the health problems that the elderly caregivers were enduring with which were age related like BP, Back ache, Arthritis, diminished eye sight etc. Against this background the study sought to determine the major causes of orphanage care, to identify the major challenges faced by these elderly caregivers in taking care of the orphans, and also to establish the coping strategies used by these elderly caregivers in upbringing the orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) under their care. The study also determined the role played by Government and other stakeholders in assisting this group and also made recommendations of interventions that can help. This study would assist Government and other aid organisations in their planning, decision making and strategy formulation.
