abstract

  • Nurses are regularly advised to become involved in community development initiatives, but what exactly does this entail and what are the precautions that should be considered? A 10-week, government sponsored, community-development program for family caregivers allowed nurses to offer education and support to six under-serviced areas of B.C. They offer a critique of the program and recommendations for the future.
