Comprehensive Community Health Nursing offers complete coverage of all major topics in community health nursing 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 that managed care is having 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 (individuals, families, groups, populations, and communities) are emphasized throughout, including group work and health advocacy for populations at risk.
