Community Nursing Integration Project

The Community Nursing Service Level Alliance Team has developed a more patient-centred and integrated Model of Care for Community Nursing in the Bay of Plenty. Our vision and the Model of Care was developed with the ideas and input from stakeholders and patients, research of other models and our knowledge of current community nursing services delivered in the Bay of Plenty. We selected the most relevant best practices and experiences from others in New Zealand and applied this knowledge to the unique needs of our population.

A paper outlining the Model of Care is available to view here.

We are optimistic that the improvements proposed will foster a more joined up way of working together, improved experience of care for patients, improved health and equity for the population, and better value for the public health system. The CNSLAT would like to thank everyone that participated in the work and gave feedback and ideas which are reflected in the model. 

The next step is to develop a proposed implementation plan for the Bay of Plenty Alliance Leadership Team.

We look forward to your support as we work towards the vision.
