This consensus statement is the first step toward a better understanding of the role of nurses in SCS. There is immense responsibility on nurses in this setting, as the majority of people who access SCS face many barriers in accessing other health and social services, even when their need for those services may be critical. For these reasons, it is essential to better prepare nurses for these realities. The authors hope that this first international consensus statement can serve as a foundation to guide practice, policy, research, and operational decisions in SCS.
