Abstract

As the roles of practice nurses develop, methods of offering them continuing education are being examined. A postal survey of 94 practice nurses in the Glasgow area was conducted to gain an impression of their knowledge and needs related to coronary heart disease (CHD) prevention. On the basis of the responses, a series of study days was designed and implemented, and a biannual newsletter on CHD risk factor assessment published and distributed. Both initiatives have been welcomed and, the authors claim, fit in with the UKCC's requirements on continuing education.
