This paper will describe how the Glasgow Caledonian University Collaborating Centre for Nursing and Midwifery Education, Research and Practice (GCUCC) is supporting the development of Nursing within Tajikistan. It outlines the development process and the framework for evaluation. A major focus of the plan of work of the GCUCC has been to support the development of nursing in Tajikistan. Following the break up of the Soviet Union and a period of civil war and unrest, Tajikistan is now introducing a new Health Reform programme. Central to this programme of health reform is the development of nursing. The GCUCC has been working with the Reform team to introduce a programme of change within the country. This change has focused on the development of leadership and management skills for nurses, who previously had very limited decision-making powers. It has also supported the introduction of Family Health Nursing as part of the reform programmes focusing on developing Primary Health Care (PHC) services. This has meant a move away from specialist to generalist medical care and from specialist nursing skills to Family Health Care (FHC). A new integrated curriculum for both general nurses and Family Health Nurses has been developed which promotes the acceptance of personal responsibility and accountability. Introducing these new concepts into nursing education will require major social and cultural changes with the development of different models of practice. Three WHO pilot centres have been set up and in collaboration with the senior nurses within Tajikistan an evaluation of the changes in Nursing that are taking place is to be carried out. A systems approach will be used using a modified evaluation framework developed by Stufflebeam (1963). The results of a preliminary base line survey will be discussed and the potential for change will be considered.
