dc.descriptionDomiciliary midwifery and the Public Health Nursing service are not nornally associated together although this was not always the case. Therefore the impetus for this project stems from a decision by the South Eastern Health Board (SEHB) to provide a service for a client who had applied for a home confinement. The health board is obliged to provide a service under the provisions of the Health Act 1970 (Department of Hea1th, 1970, Appendix 1.), and the provision of domiciliary midwifery services remains one of the duties of Public Health Nurses (PHN's) (Department of Health, 1966), despite negligible involvement in this area. The current role of the PHN is to deliver primary health care to the population of a defined geographical area within the context of the community care programme. The potential to care for pregnant women, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO, 1985) extends beyond the system present today, the shift of care must move from secondary to tertiary to primary care level. McMurray (1993) states that as responsiveness to the needs of the community is the key feature of primary health care, nurses working within this context must by definition 'change and evolve in conjunction with the community and society" (p.320).en_GB
