A straightforward book on how the community nurse can become more clinically effective in the coming century has been published by the Community Practitioners' and Health Visitors' Association.

Clinical effectiveness, a practical guide for the community nurse enables to readers to achieve best practice and help them meet the requirements of the clinical governance agenda at a time when the NHS is undergoing radical changes that will have a direct impact on their role in the community.

The CPHVA's Clinical Effectiveness Officer, Cheryl Adams said: "This book is designed to support and facilitate the community nurse as she/he grapples with the latest developments in clinical governance and evidence-based practice. As community nurses are asked to be more flexible and adaptable in their work patterns they will need tools such
as this to simplify the processes they need to become familiar with to ensure effective practice."

In the foreword, Dr J Muir Gray, Director of the Institute of Health Sciences, University of Oxford, said: "This book is a landmark book in community nursing and sets the agenda for the 21st century."
