From the foreword by Professor Dame Betty Kershaw, DBE, FRCN, Education Advisor, The Royal College of Nursing, President of the Scholarship Society for Nurses and Midwives
This book will enable you to get to grips with the professional issues that affect your practice in primary care. It is structured around the RCN domains of practice and considers a wide variety of issues such as health promotion, reflective practice and leadership.
The book is divided into two sections. Part one sets the scene for the domains of practice which follow and considers the unique aspects of practice and walk-in centre nursing. Part two considers practical aspects of each of the RCN domains of practice in turn and centres around nurse–patient relationships.
- Provides greater understanding of issues that affect the nature of practice
- Addresses the considerable changes in practice nursing and walk-in centres
- Evidence-based but also contains personal experiences
- Suitable for nurses undertaking community specialist practitioner degree courses, qualified practice nurses and walk-in centre staff
