Method: A four-stage integrative framework guided the literature review undertaken to identify evidence-based models of care specifically focused on the role of the community based specialist neurological nurse caring for people with Parkinson’s. Data on models of care from the selected articles were analysed and aggregated to synthesise findings and inform decision making at the clinical and policy level.
Results: Fourteen models of specialist nursing care from five countries are included in the review. Best practice outcomes focused on improving quality of life through nurse-led clinics, early intervention strategies, specialist neurological assessment, technological advances such as telemedicine, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaboration, support for family and carers and greater in-reach into acute facilities.
Conclusions: Specialist primary nursing services that maximise the scope of the nursing role, are multidisciplinary and use the latest technological advances are more likely to be sustainable and cost effective for service providers and people with Parkinson’s in regional communities.
