The crucial role of community nurses in primary health care
Today the Community and Primary Health Care Nursing Week, held by the Australian College of Nursing begins, showcasing some of the most important and courageous work performed by healthcare professionals working outside the four walls of the hospital.
On the show you’ll hear some of these stories – from working as the only community nurse in a small snow stricken town north of Toronto, to providing care to some of Australia’s most marginalised communities.
