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.
APNA Workforce Survey
APNA’s annual Workforce Survey has provided a comprehensive picture of the working conditions and professional concerns of primary health care nurses across Australia for the past 15 years. It is the only national survey exclusively for nurses who work in the frontline of primary health.
The Survey has become an indispensable tool for those planning for the future of health care in the country. It’s used by the nation’s agency for health and welfare information and statistics, the AIHW. The figures and information from this year’s Survey will be used to advise the government on its 10-year reform agenda for primary health care.
If there is one survey that a primary health care nurse should complete this year, it is this one.
2020 is the year that has made everyone sit up and think seriously about what the future of health care in the country will look like. Make sure your views, whether in rural Western Australia or suburban Sydney, are heard in Canberra. And please share this link with your colleagues so they can complete it too.
Thank you for your participation in the 2020 APNA Workforce Survey. Results will be available soon.
