Abstract

This article looks at one student's journey in taking theory and applying it to practice by caseload profiling on practice placement, and then how this has subsequently led to practice development. It is widely appreciated that demographics are impacting on the delivery of healthcare in Scotland. This led to the student's realisation of the importance of district nurses managing, evidencing and delivering an equitable service. Caseload profiling is a vital tool to deliver this. The article will explore caseload profiling and how this can be applied to practice. It will also explore the benefits and challenges of applying caseload profiling in practice, and equip readers with the skill of caseload profiling.
