Sample text

Wanless’s definition builds upon Acheson’s ideas by expanding the definition to include the idea that choice is a critical component when discussing health and the public. This emphasis on personal responsibility signifies the importance of the role of the individual and not the healthcare practitioner when it comes to making lifestyle decisions. However, the role of the healthcare practitioner (in this case the community nurse) is crucial to achieving health-related goals, as community nurses are often in a position to assist individuals to either access services or support individuals in making informed decisions about their health and wellbeing.
