Community Nursing: Transforming Health Care – Royal College of Nursing – 18 November 2011

ISBN: 978-1-906633-89-9

“Abstract:

Nurses who work in the community are facing significant challenges during this time of health reform and demands to make financial savings. While this is so for all nurses, regardless of their workplace, media and political attention is often focussed on hospital care, and community services remain less visible. As a result there is little understanding of what constitutes community nursing, the range of roles covered, and the principles that underpin the development of nursing services that are suitable to serve their communities well. Within this publication, the RCN highlights the excellent work carried out by community nurses 52 weeks a year and seven days a week so that they have a chance of acquiring a similar profile to those nurses who do equally important, but different work in hospitals. The RCN wants these case studies of excellent community nursing to inform, inspire and persuade people to scrutinise their current community nursing services and identify how they can be both expanded and enhanced – for the benefit of their local population.”
