The evolving role of the children's endocrine nurse specialist

Jenny Walker


Leeds Children’s Hospital, Leeds, UK


This is a brief reflection on how the role of the children’s endocrine nurse specialist has evolved over the past 24 years and discussion around what the next 24 years may look like. What have we achieved; what is there still to do and what are the major challenges for the future? When days are filled with phone calls, clinics, paper/ computer work, supporting colleagues and caring for patients- we often forget what we have actually achieved and how much our roles have developed over the last 20 years. This will be an opportunity to celebrate what we have already achieved and to consider future aspirations and how these may be reached.
