The Queen’s Nursing Institute launch Community Nursing Observatory

The Queen’s Nursing Institute launched a new International Community Nursing Observatory in London on 18 November as a part of a project to boost understanding of the community nursing workforce.

The International Community Nursing Observatory (ICNO) will have responsibility for analysing data and trends in the community nursing workforce data in greater depth. The ICNO will collate and analyse data about community and primary care nursing services at a regional, national and international level.

The idea behind the foundation of the ICNO originated from an independent strategic review conducted in 2018 by executives at Barclays Bank plc, through the ‘Unlocking Insights’ programme which is led and managed by the charity Pilotlight.

The ‘Pilotlighters’ at Barclays highlighted that data relating to the community nursing services workforce is often incomplete and this leads to barriers that prevent the progression of policy development, service enhancement and improvements to the care of individuals, families, carers and communities.

The ICNO will seek commissions designed to support data gathering and analysis that will provide evidence to enhance service planning and delivery in health and social care settings.

Dr Crystal Oldman CBE, Chief Executive of QNI, said: ‘The Queen’s Nursing Institute has a long and successful track record of publishing independent high-quality reports based on data and intelligence about the community and primary care nursing workforce. The new International Community Nursing Observatory will take our data and intelligence work at the QNI to the next level and I would like to thank Pilotlight and the Barclays team for their significant help in this important development.’
