Leadership of addiction specialist nurses

There is an increasing recognition of the crucial role that specialist nurses can play in the field of addictions. These professionals not only provide direct patient care, but also lead the development of specialized services, addiction research, and the implementation of innovative initiatives.

Moreover, addiction specialist nurses play an essential role in research, contributing to the generation of knowledge that informs and improves clinical practices.

Nursing leadership enhances the visibility of the nursing profession, which extends beyond direct clinical care to include education, prevention, and promotion, all with an evidence-based approach.
