Australia-wide there are nurses in primary health care striving to optimise their capacity to bring about sustainable, positive health outcomes for individuals, families, communities, and our nation.

State of the Art will boast innovation, best practice, proficiency and leadership in primary health care nursing. It will showcase those who are responding to their environment and employing cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to deliver safe, high quality, patient-centred care. State of the Art will highlight service delivery innovations being pioneered and led by primary health care nurses. It will acknowledge what has been learned and achieved thus far, and by harnessing the aspirations and expertise of the diverse delegation, be a vehicle to further shape and lead the progression of the primary health care nursing profession.

Nurses make up the largest health professional workforce in Australia. APNA champions the role of primary health care nurses; to advance professional recognition, ensure workforce sustainability, nurture leadership in health, and optimise the role of nurses in patient-centred care.
