Community nursing: a background paper exploring current issues

Community nursing: a background paper exploring current issues
Community nursing: a background paper exploring current issues
The Briefing Paper attempts to tackle some of the many issues currently facing community nursing. Inevitably this is beyond the scope of one report. The Paper therefore discusses the more salient topics as they relate to DHA purchasing policies. It is hoped that the Paper raises areas of interest and concern to Consortium members which can subsequently be pursued. Feedback on the Paper would thus be welcomed. The Paper focuses on two groups of community nurses: Health Visitors (HVs) and District Nurses (DNs). It is recognised that significant developments are occurring in other groups and that many factors influencing these two groups lie beyond their control. The current dilemmas and future prospects of HVs and DNs are addressed. Discussion about practice nurses is included later in the Paper.

Abstract

The Briefing Paper attempts to tackle some of the many issues currently facing community nursing. Inevitably this is beyond the scope of one report. The Paper therefore discusses the more salient topics as they relate to DHA purchasing policies. It is hoped that the Paper raises areas of interest and concern to Consortium members which can subsequently be pursued. Feedback on the Paper would thus be welcomed. The Paper focuses on two groups of community nurses: Health Visitors (HVs) and District Nurses (DNs). It is recognised that significant developments are occurring in other groups and that many factors influencing these two groups lie beyond their control. The current dilemmas and future prospects of HVs and DNs are addressed. Discussion about practice nurses is included later in the Paper.
