RCN publishes abortion care guidance

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has published its updated publication 'Abortion care. Guidance for nurses, midwives and specialist community public health nurses'.

The publication, currently only available on the RCN website, is an update of previous work completed by the RCN around the issue of abortion care.

The guidance aims to provide clear information for nurses to improve knowledge about abortion and abortion care.

Information is also included to help empower nurses to develop their roles in abortion care and protecting the public.
