The aim of this qualitative study is to explore practice nurses’ perceptions
of their role in providing diabetes care. Semi-structured interviews were
conducted with 15 purposively selected general practice nurses working in
the Northwest of England. Five main themes were identified through coding
and demonstrate that definitions of diabetes service are complex and
that variations exist in perceptions of care. The main findings give an
insight into practice nurses’ perceptions of their scope and level of practice
in primary diabetes care. This research highlights practice nurses’ training
needs in order to meet new national guidelines in diabetes care.
