The General Practice Nurseís role has changed enormously over the past few decades. This helpful book gives an up-to-date overview of the GPNís 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.
