Futureproofing community children’s nursing

The Royal College of Nursing has issued guidance on future children and young people’s nursing services in the home and community settings.

The document underlines the increasingly crucial role played by community children’s nurses in providing integrated care closer to home. It explores the legislative and policy agenda, defines the role of the children's community nurse, sets out the core principles of providing care, considers variations in how the needs of families are assessed across the four countries of the UK, and outlines examples of current models of care and service delivery.
