The roles of health care professionals are rapidly evolving. Over recent years, the nursing profession has taken on new challenges and extended roles in respect of patient care. Many nurses in senior roles work autonomously and at a higher level of practice, engaging in flexible cross boundary partnership working. In order to undertake such roles effectively, guidance is required to maintain standards. This article presents an overview of the development and implementation of a new  dermatology pocket guide in Scotland.
