Vascular nursing is extremely varied and it is be to stated that not all aspects of the competencies will be related to every nurses area of practice. All professionals delivering patient care must also be aware of local and national policies relating to effective communication, personal development, equality, diversity and inclusion, duty of care, safeguarding, professional conduct, person centred approach, confidentiality, information governance, infection prevention and control, health and safety and moving and handling.
These competencies along with the staff nurse competencies provide a framework setting out the minimum skills, knowledge and behaviours required to deliver vascular nursing roles. We hope that these documents will be useful in identifying training requirements, documenting competency and improving the quality of service delivery.
If you require any further information about these documents please contact committee member Claire Thompson.
