This final article in a four-part series on dementia focuses on the nurse's role in managing dementia and highlights the importance of communication skills in providing high-quality care. It also discusses treatment options, such as medication and ensuring the patient's nutritional needs are met, as well as the importance of dealing sensitively with behavioural problems that may mask pain or emotional difficulties.

Visiting times on wards providing care for older people (HCOP) wards were explorec as part of a master's in advanced nursing. Restricted visiting was not found to be evidence-based so strategies were used to explore alternative options. This small-scale project, which set out to benefit the care of older people on acute wards, used a systematic, inclusive approach to involve staff at all levels and demonstrates how evidence and theory can be translated into practice.

Revalidation has been a source of anxiety and uncertainty for some nurses and midwives. With a mixed health economy including private and public sector organisations, the Bailiwick of Guernsey wanted to ensure the system was implemented consistently. A programme of training was developed to help staff through the revalidation process and link the Nursing and Midwifery Council's Code of Conduct to practice. Training and support was also provided for confirmers.

REVIEW
Bernie Keenan, Catharine Jenkins, Laura Ginesi
While dementia is an umbrella term for a range of degenerative brain disorders, many share similar presentations. Nurses are ideally placed to identify those at risk and empower them to access treatment and plan and prepare for their future needs--as such, they need up-to-date knowledge of the signs and symptoms of the different types of dementia to identify risk factors and make an informed diagnosis. This article, the third in a four-part series on dementia, examines the risk factors, signs, symptoms and diagnosis of dementia, as well as outlining lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise that may help to prevent the development of the condition...

This has been followed in May 2016 by an NHS England publication for nursing, midwifery and care staff that builds on the 6Cs and provides a framework around 10 commitments.

Patient with spinal cord injuries have individualised care routines to help prevent complications. Disruption to these routines following admission to non-specialist settings can have long-term consequences. This article focuses on the key long-term problems of pressure ulcers, bladder and bowel dysfunction, and autonomic dysreflexia.
