    Promoting the Public's Health

    Cherie Rector

    Help your students understand that community/public health nursing skills benefit their nursing practice as well as patient outcomes in acute care
     
    This student-friendly, highly visual text expands students’ viewpoints from the client-nurse relationship to a population focus. Acknowledging that population-focused tools and interventions are needed in acute care, as infection rates continue to rise and nurse-sensitive outcome indictors are closely monitored, Cherie Rector weaves in meaningful, real-life examples, case studies, and perspectives to help students understand that transitions in care are critical in today’s healthcare system. Covering a multitude of community and public settings, situations, and populations, the book helps students learn about promoting health, preventing disease (not just treating it), and protecting at-risk populations—including the elderly, the LGBT community, and veterans.  This fully updated 9th Edition encourages students to think more globally and covers new innovations and emerging threats to the public’s health.

    Offering a greater emphasis on evidence-based practice than any other book for the course, Community and Public Health Nursing, 2nd Edition, demonstrates best practices in the field and helps students develop the abstract critical thinking skills and complex reasoning abilities they need to make connections between data and practice decisions. Succinct, manageable, and logically organized, the Second Edition focuses on the individual in the context of the community setting and on the global community, reflecting increasingly global healthcare concerns.
     
    To help students develop the clinical judgment they will need in their future careers, the book includes an exceptional array of case-based activities. Case studies in every chapter focus on regional, national, and international community settings and are supported by online answers, discussion questions, and reflective journaling assignments. In addition, five unique, interactive online case studies complement each Part in the text. Finally, the expanded and visually enhanced “Adam’s County” online resource includes case-based questions, activities, critical thinking assignments, and—new to this edition—suggested answers.
     
    The Second Edition features an increased focus on non-communicable diseases as a global trend, enhanced content on program evaluation, new examples, and a wide range of online teaching and learning resources to save you time and help your students succeed.
