Community Nurse Consultation
Nurse consultants support best possible health in people with developmental disabilities by providing assessments, developing intervention plans and supporting person-specific training. Nurse consultants work to make sure a person’s health needs are safely met in a shift-staffed environment where many staff support the same person.
A nurse consultant can provide education about new or existing diagnoses (physical or mental health) that may impact a person’s care needs and behavior. Staff can provide better supports when they understand the meaning of a diagnosis, common signs and symptoms and the impact the diagnosis has on the person. Nurse consultants also help with navigation and advocacy in health systems.
