The latest edition of COMPREHENSIVE COMMUNITY HEALTH NURSING continues to offer complete coverage of the major topics in the field, from epidemiology and communicable disease to chronic illness and home health nursing. Written from a population-focused perspective, this edition thoroughly describes the theoretical foundations of community-oriented health promotion and health education. Aggregates at heightened risk are considered in a chapter on contemporary health issues including those experiencing poverty and homelessness, substance abuse, and violence. The text insightfully reports the impact of managed care on the health care delivery system. The changing roles and responsibilities of community health nurses within clinics, homes, and hospice centers - as well as nontraditional care settings such as schools, businesses, and industries - are clearly depicted. Community health nursing interventions with a variety of client groups, including individuals, families, groups, populations, and communities, are emphasized throughout, including group work and health advocacy for populations at risk.Chin J: Control of communicable diseases manual, ed 17, Washington, DC, 2000 , APHA. ...
