Summary

"Community/Public Health Nursing: Promoting the Health of Populations, Fourth Edition", focuses on the issues and responsibilities of contemporary community/public health nursing. It retains the book's hallmark social justice approach, photo novellas that illustrate clinical stories, and a concise presentation. An emphasis on working with populations combined with the upstream preventive approach prepares students to be engaged participants in preventing illness and promoting health in community and public settings. New to this edition are a full-color design, a chapter on disaster management and preparedness, and content on the growing fields of forensic nursing and hospice. The new features include research highlights, ethical insights, and Healthy People 2010 boxes. Detailed case studies have been added to several chapters. The enhanced ancillary package provides instructors with an 800-question test bank including innovative items, new PowerPoint lecture slides, and many other instructional aids. The new study tools for students are Case Studies with questions and answers and a review Quiz.
