Building a Business Case for Nurse-led Services

Nurse-led services are becoming increasingly common as they offer a variety of benefits to both the patient and the healthcare service, including increased efficiency and continuity of care. You may wish to implement a nurse-led service in your locality, but the process can be daunting. We have developed this module to provide useful information and resources for the development of your business case and guide you through the process.

While this module focuses on building a business case for nurse-led services for lung cancer, it may also be useful for anyone who wishes to develop a business case for any nurse-led service.

Please see our disclaimer regarding module content.

This e-learning module will take just 60 minutes. Optional pre-reading, available in the ‘resources’ section of this page, will take approximately 30–60 minutes. Saving where you left off, you can dip in and out of the module whenever you have the time. You are encouraged to make notes or take screenshots during the module to reinforce your learning.

A certificate is still available to download upon module completion to add to your portfolio, however accreditation received by the Federation of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has expired.

Nurses play a key role in the provision of care to patients with lung cancer, and nurse-led services have been shown to offer improved efficiency and continuity of care.
