Clinical nursing in the community

Clinical nursing in the community Introduction: With people moving around more, diseases can spread quickly around the world. Changes in how people get vaccinated have also shown that diseases that were once thought to be under control are getting worse. Community health officials have to deal with new problems because of these global health issues. In this task, you’ll look at a recent outbreak of a disease that can spread around the world and has crossed international borders.
