Primary Care Nursing Task Force Report
In the early months of 2012 we announced the launching a ground-breaking task force, bringing together key stakeholders to review the role of almost 4,300 primary care nurses (RNs and RPNs) currently practising in Ontario.
This task force was initiated in response to a growing concern over the under-utilization of thousands of primary care nurses; the task force recommends maximizing and expanding their role.
Now, this groundbreaking report focused on the work of primary care nurses is ready for release.
The task force says its recommendations; including maximizing and expanding the role of primary care nurses will result in greater cost savings, improved system efficiency and better health outcomes.
