In light of current evidence, this Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) resource is being revised to ensure it remains a contemporary and relevant guidance for nurses.
The document supports the development of best practice and the creation of specialist IBD nurse roles within local organisations.
It is intended nurses and health commissioners should adapt these descriptors for their local needs and in line with the professional experience of the post holder.
The descriptors are based on the experiences of IBD, gastroenterology and colorectal nurse specialists and nurse endoscopists working in IBD specialties
The RCN is seeking to collaborate with organisations whose priorities align in IBD and are keen to support the development and dissemination of these descriptors across the UK.To discuss how this collaboration could align with your business objectives, please contact Rose Harrison on 0207 647 3632.
