Summary

This vibrant introduction to community based nursing roles and concepts focuses on nursing care of the individual in a community setting. It`s divided into four units that cover the knowledge base for concepts and the application of concepts. Basic concepts are presented in the first unit, with discussion of practice settings, levels of prevention, health promotion, the family, and cultural considerations. Three basic skills of community nursing -- communicating, educating, and managing -- are examined in the second unit. The third unit explains the application of skills and concepts to continuity of care, discharge planning, community resources and referrals, and home health practice. The fourth unit prepares the reader for what`s ahead, with a look into the future trends in community based nursing.

A humorous illustration, accompanied by an interesting paragraph on the material to be covered begins each chapter, setting the tone and piqueing the reader`s interest in the material ahead. Each chapter concludes with learning activities, including Critical Thinking Activities, Client Studies, and Practical Applications -- involving the student and enhancing mastery of the subject matter. A glossary at the back of the book defines commonly used terms.
