A novel APP approach to nurse-led renal catheter care
 K. Melchiorsen, Aarhus (DK)
Aims and objectives of this presentation

Can the specialist nurse help the patient with a nephrostomy catheter at home by introducing a new tool, an APP, that the community nurse can use easily and get when needed, an APP that is true to the nurse tradition of bedside learning?
The aim is to build a bridge between the hospital and the community nurse so the patient with a nephrostomy catheter can feel at ease and secure at home and to avoid the patient from arriving before time in hospital to get the nephrostomy catheter replaced.
