Case studies and examples


Island Bay Medical Centre

As an experienced practice nurse, Fiona has a good insight into just
how much nurses can contribute to the primary care team. She has
undertaken several clinical roles including outreach and home visiting.
These roles required her to draw on all her clinical skills as well as gain
a deeper understanding of the social and cultural influences on the
health of her patients.
