Recommendations for efficient investments in Family and Community Nurses

In the longer term, the ultimate aim is to ensure sustainability for the ENhANCE project results, which at its most central is about achieving a broad and widespread recognition at the European level of Family Community Nurses (FCNs).

This recognition can be facilitated by ensuring a greater adoption and formal recognition of the professional profile at national or regional level, but also by continuing the work commenced with ENhANCE at the European level – namely to ensure a harmonised definition of the FCN Professional Profile relevance of the competencies and the associated European curriculum for FCN.

However, with a view to the variability in the organisation, structure, and governance of primary care and community-based care services across Europe, we would like to share with you a summary of key recommendations aimed at and policy and decision-makers.


The recommendations herein have been kept broad to ensure their relevance and applicability across the different cultural, health and social care contexts and have been made available in a short summary and infographic format available for download here.
