    Over the past decade considerable emphasis has been placed on the nurse's role in patient education. Despite this numerous studies have suggested that this aspect of nursing practice is under-developed. Using rehabilitation as a case example this paper explores the nursing contribution to patient education in five conditions: multiple sclerosis; arthritis; myocardial infarction; spinal injury and stroke. Although the literature identifies considerable potential for nurses to take a lead role in patient education this is rarely achieved in practice. Analyses of printed curricula from a range of courses indicate that nurses are not adequately prepared for patient education and that a reorientation of nurse education is required.
