Community Nursing Practice
Winsome St. John
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
This is a thorough introduction to community nursing practice based on the principles of primary health care and a social model of health. Community practice is a stimulating and diverse field of nursing. Nurses in this area often work without direct support from other health professionals, yet they still need not only excellent clinical skills but also high levels of proficiency in communication, research, and health promotion. “Community Nursing Practice” provides a thorough introduction to the role of community nursing and outlines the theory, knowledge, and skills they need to make a difference to the health and well-being of individuals, families, groups, and even whole communities. This volume pays particular attention to knowledge that is often taken for granted amongst experienced practitioners, as well as outlining the foundations of community practice - including the principles of disease prevention and wellness promotion. Also included are numerous case studies and examples from a variety of practice settings.
