Clinical Currency Statement
As at August 2020, I am engaged in the role of Senior Clinical Case Manager for an average of 120 hours per month.
Specific Injuries Experience
Lisa specialises in dealing with the ongoing care, support and equipment needs of adults with circulatory disease, organ failure and cancer. The cohort of individuals she frequently works with have life limiting illnesses such as malignant mesothelioma and breast cancer. These conditions often result in weakness, fatigue and/or chronic pain. Lisa is responsible for managing her client’s ongoing needs and providing support and guidance.
Lisa also has experience of working with people with orthopaedic injuries, spinal and brain injuries and amputations in her role as Clinical Case Manager. Many of Lisa’s clients have had complex mental health needs, and have required input and support in a number of care environments including as an inpatient under a detention order.
Many of Lisa’s clients also have medical needs as a result of internal injuries and conditions and therefore require health related equipment, such as catheters, home dialysis, stoma and drains. Some of Lisa’s clients have sustained spinal and brain injury. These require ongoing management in the community which Lisa coordinates and monitors.
During her career, Lisa has worked in many different health environments including hospitals, the community, and hospices. She understand the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to care to promote optimum, effective and consistent care is in place which ensures the best outcomes for clients.
As a Nurse Lisa has worked in hospital, hospice and community settings and gained knowledge and experience of working with clients and their families, supporting them through the most difficult and challenging of times and tackling the countless problems that can occur when living with a disability or chronic illness.
She has experience in a variety of clinical roles and has been employed by the NHS and worked within private and charitable sectors. Lisa has treated adults of all ages with a range of conditions in the areas of trauma and orthopaedics, amputations, cardiac, neurological and medical conditions but has a special interest in managing chronic and life limiting conditions. She has a wide knowledge base and a thorough understanding of the effects of pain, illness and disability on the quality of life.
While working as a specialist palliative care nurse in the community, Lisa held her own large caseload, involving patients with long term conditions, life limiting illnesses, profound and multiple disabilities and brain injury. After then being appointed as Clinical Lead for End of Life Care she led on developing health services for people requiring palliative and end of life care, and provided clinical expertise and training to colleagues at Milton Keynes Hospital, Willen Hospice, community nursing teams, GPs and care homes.
As Commissioner for End of Life Care Services, Palliative Care Services and Specialist Neurological Services/Rehabilitation Lisa worked closely with specialist teams to ensure that people were receiving total active care by the multi-disciplinary team, and the funding to enable that required level of care.
As an Oncology Nurse Lisa provided hands on nursing care for people with complete and incomplete spinal injuries as a result of cancer which had spread to the spine, often causing irreversible paralysis. From this she has a keen understanding of the level of nursing and care support required for individuals requiring bladder/bowel management, needing to manage autonomic dysreflexia, and risks associated with venous thromboembolism and tissue viability.
Lisa has also worked as a Disability Assessor for the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and as a Specialist End of Life Care Advisor for the Care Quality Commission (CQC), providing advice and input into the CQCs regulatory inspection and investigation activity in order to ensure that judgements made by them, are informed, up to date, and based on credible professional knowledge and experience.
She currently works as a Case Manager for clients with complex conditions including brain injury and chronic conditions such as mesothelioma. In this role Lisa co-ordinates and liaises with appropriate health professionals and care teams to identify their total care needs and arrange appropriate care, equipment and adaptations to support their independent living.
In 2020, Lisa attended Inspire MediLaw’s Courtroom Skills Day.
