Description:
The workload of the public health nurse either from observati on or from offici al reports appears to be over-compl ex, mUltidisciplined, physically demanding and emotionally stressing. Generalisations are frequently made but difficult to substantiate, though easy to articulate. As a result the real workload and role of the public health nurse has become obscured even to some of themselves. In an effort to quantify the actual daily duties of the nurses, a survey was proposed and eventually undertaken through the co-operation of the 'Superintendent Public Health Nurses Association. It was decided to hold it from mid-February to mid-March, 1985.
