The aim of this book is to provide the nursing literature with an in-depth and comprehensive exploration of all aspects of the role of the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), underpinned by a firm theoretical framework derived from Role Theory. A nationwide study in the UK was undertaken for this purpose and it involved 334 CNSs working in the area of diabetes. The concepts relevant to the CNS role were identified, explored and construed in a validated theoretical framework. Although the sample of the study involved CNSs working in diabetes, the findings can be generalised to the wider populstion of CNSs in any country. The Role Theory Framework of the CNS role explored in this book can underpin the study of any CNS role, independent of their speciality, and explain their role development and performance. The final chapter provides a perspective from Greece where the CNS role has not yet been introduced. It explores the barriers to and advantages of CNS role implementation in this setting. All chapters are underpinned by the same theoretical framework and are interconnected. However, each can stand alone by exploring a specific and unique aspect of the CNS role.
