Our editorial advisory board

The Primary Health Care editorial advisory board (EAB) is a selected group of international nursing specialists chosen for their invaluable expertise and experience in community, primary care and public health

The EAB contributes to the editorial development of Primary Health Care, providing insight into what challenges nurses who work outside of hospital settings face and how to serve their needs through the journal.

Primary Health Care EAB members write for the journal on areas within their expertise, encourage authors to submit papers and review manuscripts submitted for publication. They are ambassadors for Primary Health Care and use their position to promote the journal among colleagues and on public occasions, providing feedback by seeking views on the journal from nurses and reporting to the editor on issues that could help with the journal’s image and development.

We are always seeking new EAB members. If you are keen to join the board please contact julie.sylvester@rcni.com or tweet @RCNi_Julie.
