Orthopaedic nursing is changing at an unprecedented pace and will continue to do so at an accelerated rate in the future. The journal seeks to ensure that orthopaedic nurses, and allied health care professionals, are able to move forward positively and proactively to continually improve their patients' and clients' outcomes at home or in hospital. Research, practice, education and management, at all levels are interlinked to produce a forum for providing evidence-based care related to impaired physical mobility.
