As nursing practice necessarily becomes increasingly research-based, it is important that professionals keep up-to-date with current research initiatives and with their implications.
This book brings together some of the UK's foremost community nurses and researchers. Examples of research into aspects of community care are presented in such a way as to inform nurses about developments and initiatives nationwide at the same time as laying down exemplar for the evaluation of other new developments as and when they arise.

JEAN MCINTOSH RGN, BSc (Hons.Soc), PhD, FRCN is QNI Professor of Community Nursing Research at the Department of Nursing and Community Health, Glasgow Caledonian University.
