Scotland has led enactment of the new World Health Organisation (Europe) Family Health Nurse (FHN) concept. This paper presents research which evaluated the initial operation and impact of the role in remote and rural regions of Scotland. Through use of a multiplex research design informed by ideas from realistic evaluation, fourth generation evaluation and case study research, an initial typology of practice was constructed. The new FHN role typically supplemented, rather than supplanted, pre-existing community nursing services. Implications arising from key findings are discussed in relation to Scottish, UK and European nursing and primary care perspectives.
