In response to the people's need for long-term nursing care for the elderly in Japan, the Long-term Care Insurance (LTCI) system was implemented nationwide in 2000. Health and welfare professionals working with the elderly face many issues because community practice models for this type of system, new to Japan, are still in early phases of their development. The purpose of this study was to develop a community nursing practice model in Japan that would incorporate refinements of Primary Health Care (PHC)�h concepts. Methods were: firstly, review of published literature using the key words Primary Health Care in order to extract dimensions of nursing practices in a community and develop the conceptual frame for this study; secondly, review of historical documents and literature regarding community/public health nursing practices in Japan; and, thirdly, surveying six countries regarding their community health system and nursing practices by interview and questionnaire prepared by the authors. The new practice model developed from intensive review and discussion of findings. It takes into account three factors: the essential elements of PHC, beginning with community people-centeredness; the historical individual focus of public health and home visiting nursing practices; and needs associated the health transition phase of the aged society. The model emphasizes two aspects of practice: coordinating and networking. Coordinating is described in terms of bringing together services for frail elders within the context of LTCI and roles of case manager and care system manager. Networking is described in relation to community members and their concerns and policy makers and administrators of voluntary organizations (NPOs), and the social welfare, public health and medical sectors. Further development will occur as a result of additional inquiry with regard to current practices, inter-relationships, and outcomes.
