A previous survey carried out by The British Dermatological Nursing Group (BDNG) highlighted the lack of consistency of nursing role definition and associated Agenda for Change (AfC) banding and an absence of a structured career pathway for nurses who specialise in dermatology. The British Association of Dermatologist (BAD) Education Board Nursing Workstream has collaborated with the British Dermatological Nursing Group (BDNG) to develop role descriptors for dermatology nurses alongside a suggested career development guide. This work has been carried out to help address the concerns of members from both organisations, against a backdrop of workforce issues where the need to recruit, train and retain dermatology nurses has become increasingly critical for service sustainability.
Following extensive stakeholder feedback the Clinical Dermatology Nursing Role Descriptors: guidance on scope of practice (September 2020) is available here.
We are pleased you have accessed the Clinical Dermatology Nursing Role Descriptors: guidance on scope of practice document. We would be very grateful if you could provide brief feedback to help us learn more about your first impressions of this document.
