The General Practice Nurse’s role has changed enormously over the past few decades. This helpful book gives an up-to-date overview of the GPN’s responsibilities, providing relevant information about clinical skills and knowledge, health promotion and screening, and the management and assessment of long-term conditions most commonly presented in primary care.
The book is edited by Deborah Duncan, a nurse educator and GPN, and includes contributions from other nurses who are experienced in their fields. It contains a wealth of references and resources, enabling the reader to gain more detailed knowledge of each topic. There are also reader’s activities (designed to reinforce the content) scattered throughout the text.
Aimed at nurses in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, who want to work in primary care, this will be a vital resource for those who are new to General Practice Nursing as well as those returning to it after a long gap.
