The role and scope of nursing in primary health care is continually evolving as a result of changes in society. This book explores current issues from the perspective of nursing, showing how policy informs practice. The topics covered include:

* health needs profiling
* assessment
* interprofessional work
* quality of care
* family carers
* new nursing roles in primary health care

The book is suitable for practioners in primary health care, students doing diploma, degree and postgraduate courses in nursing and health studies, and also post-registration courses. Nursing in Primary Care draws on research and examples from practice to encourage a questioning approach to policy information and the consequences of its implementation.
