Primary health care encompasses many diverse areas of practice for nurses - for example community nursing, occupational health, general practice and community outreach programs. This unit of study will examine the nurses’ role in primary health care through exploring the students’ application of the social determinants of health in the context of the community use and social and government policy responses. Collaborative models, stakeholder participation and health promotion activities are explored. This unit of study explores the professional issues that impact on the primary health nurse, the use of information management and the provision of clinical care using evidence based guidelines and frameworks.
