Now and the Future: A General Practice Nursing Framework for Northern Ireland
'Now and the Future' is a consensus view of the framework required to develop and sustain the general practice nursing workforce in Northern Ireland.
The framework aims to provide guidance to support systems and processes that are required for the development of general practice nurses.
It's a reference tool for general practices to highlight key nursing issues, roles, competencies, teamwork and professional governance arrangements required to support nursing registration and practice in primary care.
The second document outlines information gathered from the 2016 General Practice Manager and General Practice Nurse Surveys led by the Public Health Agency (PHA) Nursing and AHP Directorate with the support of PHA Health Intelligence Directorate. These workforce surveys were a key work stream undertaken to inform the Framework for General Practice Nursing in Northern Ireland.
