Abstract

Primary care parish nursing is a practice model that resulted from a collaborative partnership between faculty members, medical center administrative and nursing personnel, and a parish priest and congregation. The primary purpose of this collaborative project was to provide easy access to underserved populations, promote early recognition and treatment of disease, and encourage healthy behaviors and lifestyle within a faith-based environment. The population attending this program was complex and diverse, with multiple physical, social, spiritual, and psychological needs. The primary outcomes of this three-year program included case finding, case screening, and case referral.
