Community Nurse Records — Primary Health Care Nurse

  • Joyce Wiseman
Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Medical Informatics book series (LNMED, volume 11)


The paper has been formulated from a literary search into the primary health care (PHC) nurse’s record, which was commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Security for England & Wales with the purpose of discovering the state of literary knowledge surrounding the health visitor and district nurses’ records.

The literature search has centred itself on literature published in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Europe from 1970 to 1980.

Publications have been included in the search which relate to nursing records in both Community and Hospital; the General Practitioner Records and Health Care Information Systems.
