APNA's definition of primary health care nursing covers health, scope of practice, primary health care, roles and settings. We also explore general practice nursing and Phillips et al. six roles of the general practice nurse.
The Future of Primary Health Care Nursing: Nurse 2022 - Panel
Our panellists – APNA President Karen Booth, registered nurse Jackie Eyles, nurse practitioner Chris Helms, APNA Board Director and medical practitioner Tony Hobbs and CEO of Inala Primary Care Tracey Johnson – will hold a thought provoking discussion, facilitated by APNA’s CEO Ken Griffin, about some key policy issues that impact on the progression of primary health care nursing, and the activity that needs to occur at both the system level and also by nurses, to bring about APNA’s vision for the future of primary health care nursing: APNA Nurse 2022. This includes delving into issues such as funding models to support primary health care nurses working to their full scope of practice, other challenges that nurses can face in being able to work to full scope of practice, exploring how the nurse role can be better understood and recognised, and how APNA is campaigning for primary health care nurses being respected and valued for their vital role within the health care system by 2022.
