Journals and supplements
Since 1978 the Journal of Community Nursing (JCN) has been providing education, information and training to community nurses within the UK, and globally, in areas such as continence care, wound care, skin care, chronic conditions, to name but a few.
The Care Today series of annual journals cover specific areas of care vital for your day-to-day practice, including Wound Care Today, Skin Care Today and Respiratory Care Today. Their easy-to-read style combines education and practical tips that focus on issues central to good patient care.
To help you in your day-to-day practice, JCN regularly produces supplements to provide education in key areas of clinical practice.
This currently includes 'Wound care in the community' and 'Challenging your practice: venous leg ulcers', as well as 'Evaluation of a dynamic mattress replacement system within a community setting'.
