Summary

Eleven nursing innovations supporting the development of new models of primary care nursing practice and fostering nurse leadership were funded by the Ministry of Health from January 2004 to mid-2006.

There were two main kinds of innovation and the evaluation reports on the varying levels of success across the 11 innovations.

Innovations that fostered the role of the nurse practitioner and services that focus on chronic care management and services for familes, whanau and young people are of particular interest for those planning services for the future.

There is also an overview report that provides a brief summary of the work of the 11 innovations and their evaluation, and then looks at the key issues that came out of the innovations project and the implications for primary health care nursing.
