This free online event is an exciting opportunity to hear nursing workforce expert, Professor Alison Leary MBE, speak on the subjects of safe caseloads in community nursing.

Professor Alison Leary PhD RN FRCN is Chair of Healthcare & Workforce Modelling at London South Bank University and Director of the QNI’s International Community Nursing Observatory.

Sponsored session

We will also hear from Cathy Woods and representatives of the software company Yarra, on the Use of E-CAT software for Monitoring Caseloads.

The E-CAT product for district nursing is an electronic tool which supports caseload analysis and audit. Underpinned by a bespoke dependency tool and based on a methodology validated by the University of Ulster, the tool looks at caseload variables at all levels, from caseload holder to commissioner and facilitates caseload benchmarking and performance management.

The tool has been implemented in all five health trusts in Northern Ireland providing a significant regional evidence base. We will be able to hear about the experience of using E-CAT in Northern Ireland from the NI Public Health Agency.
