Community Health Nursing: Promoting the Health of Populations
Saunders (W.B.) Co Ltd
Mary A. Nies
The previous two editions of this text have earned a solid and respectable standing within the community health nursing market. This edition is a significant, substantive revision that focuses on the issues, responsibilities, and roles important for providing contemporary community health nursing care. The chapters have been reorganized and streamlined, with several new chapters added. The subtitle has been changed from "Promoting the Health of Aggregates" to "Promoting the Health of Populations" because the term populations is more representative of the book's focus, which is all types and all sizes of groups of people. The book has several unique features that stand out. The upstream thinking approach emphasizes health promotion efforts within a community to address the precursors of poor health. Detailed case studies provide a community component for each step of the nursing process, something no other community health nursing book does. Three photo-novellas, which are stories in photograph form, depict the details of real-life community health nursing responsibilities.
