Abstract

This article focuses on the importance of primary health care nurses’ involvement in the identification of children with severe disabilities, early and appropriate intervention that includes referral, as well as the provision of support to the children’s caregivers. The use of multiskilling as a strategy to train nurses to fulfil this role is described. The traditional roles of community nurses are explored within the disability paradigm, with specific reference to multi-skilling. Finally, research results following the implementation of the Beginning Communication Intervention Protocol (BCIP), which uses multiskilling as a training strategy, are described. Recommendations for further research are then provided.
