Health Promotion Throughout the Lifespan is a comprehensive
textbook that covers all major concepts of health promotion and
disease prevention. Its currency, comprehensiveness, and readability
are just a few of the strengths it is noted for. The focus on health
promotion makes it useful in many courses in community health
nursing, and its comprehensive coverage of growth and
development makes it attractive as a primary text for separate courses
in this area as well. Practicing nurses also find it valuable as a
clinical resource, as noted by the award bestowed on a previous
edition by a nurse practitioner organization. The lifespan approach
addresses health promotion for all age groups. The assessment
framework is based on Gordon's Functional Health Patterns.
Health promotion is presented for all population groups: individuals,
families, and communities.
An attractive two-color design highlights the many special features
in the book. The fifth edition includes several new features that
emphasize practical clinical interventions, such as Case Studies, Care
Plans that promote wellness, and Innovative Practice boxes. The word
client has been replaced with person or individual to reflect
the current emphasis on empowering the consumers of health care.
