Reflections on family nursing

WithDorothy A. Whyte

It is clear that we are at an exploratory stage in the development of family nursing here in Edinburgh, but it has been an exciting journey getting thus far, and we hope not to have terminated in a blind alley, but rather to progress with the journey. We have raised more questions than we have answered, but it is our hope that others will engage in practice, research and education in family nursing and that the body of knowledge thus developed will enhance nursing practice in the United Kingdom in the decade to come.
