Epidemiological bases for population health will be utilised to explore how community based nurses promote health in partnership with their clients and community. This unit will explore a range of community nursing skills necessary for advancing health and wellbeing for people in the community including assessment, analysing health statistics, and planning and evaluating community health programs. These skills will enhance the current clinical practice of nurses working in the community and complement the specialist nursing skills nurses bring with them to their community setting.
