Overview

This updated and revised text examines the contemporary public health nursing role as a 'hands on' care giver combined with the public health role of community detective and epidemiologist who promotes a healthy, effective partnership with the community. It presents a global focus that is appropriate for our shrinking world and includes disaster and community health threats as well as concepts and goals addressed by the World Health Organization (WHO). The book is used as a graduate level text that focuses on community assessment and development of community health programs that address community health needs. It is also used as an adjunct text in BSN and BSN-completion programs to cover the concepts of community demographics, community assessment, analysis and advocacy.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Frieda M. Holt
The first edition of this book published in 1988 addressed the community as client. This second edition develops community as partner. The book includes four parts: (1) content areas basic to practice in the community; (2) models of practice using the nursing process; (3) exemplars of community as partner -- stories from different parts of the world; and (4) a report of a WHO project that brought world leaders together to discuss the future of community health beyond the year 2000. The purpose is to develop the community-as-partner concept as the basis for nursing practice in and for the community. The global scope of the book 's exemplars with the emphasis on partnerships with the community fills a gap in community health nursing texts. The book is intended for the community health practitioners, and because of its global perspective, it could be a text for international nursing. It also would be an excellent resource for graduate students. The book has a bright, cheerful cover that conveys the global perspective of the content. The tables and figures clearly illustrate examples used in the book. Interest to the casual reader would be enhanced by more pictures. This community health book is written from a wonderful global perspective, emphasizing the importance and methods of developing true partnerships with communities. Practical examples illustrate general concepts. The book is easy to understand and not overly abstract, i.e., it is written from a common sense approach for practicing community nurses. The chapters on community, assessment, analysis, nursing diagnosis, and planning, implementing and evaluating community health programs are particularly well done. Theinternational perspective throughout the book, particularly in the exemplars, makes a valuable contribution to the texts in community health.
