For patients with long-term conditions, the role of the nurse specialist is key to continuity of care. This chapter outlines issues that nurse specialists need to be aware of in demonstrating their value. Nurse-led care and the competencies required for nurse specialist roles are outlined and provide a framework for nurses new to the role to consider. Working as a nurse specialist often has a level of autonomy that ward nurses do not have and therefore it is vital that nurses working in these roles should be able to clearly articulate the components of their role, define the clinical effectiveness of the nurse-led clinic activities, and demonstrate the benefits to the individual, the organization they work for, and the wider society. This chapter succinctly outlines these key points.
