A new set of National Guidelines on Nursing Management of Nasogastric Tube in Adult Patients (NGT guidelines) has been developed and it will replace the previous CPG developed in 2010 and will include recommendations on indications for NGT insertion, placement and confirmation of NGT position, precautionary measures, management of NGT and broad guiding principles on staff training, competencies, and escalation processes.
The Geriatric Nursing Competency Framework (GNCF) and the Palliative Nursing Competency Framework (PNCF) will provide clarity on the job roles, responsibilities and the associated professional competencies for nurses working in geriatric and palliative care settings to meet the growing needs of the ageing population in Singapore. It will also serve as a guide for nurses and employers to identify skills gaps and pursue development opportunities.
