dc.description.abstractThis paper explores the role and contribution of district nursing within primary health care. Examples of how this service is organised within different health care systems are used to discuss the context-dependent nature and challenges of the work. By drawing on UK policy change, health priorities and recent research into district nursing, the paper concludes that, in attempting to deal with the challenges of health care in the 21st century, the significance and potential of district nursing services are frequently overlooked. It is recommended that a research strategy for district nursing should build on the profession's comprehensive understanding of the needs of families and communities and should aim to provide evidence for practice that will further improve patient and client outcomes.en
