More About This Textbook


The second edition of Community Health Nursing in Canada has been extensively revised and is informed by the most current research available. This comprehensive textbook introduces undergraduate nursing students to community health nursing concepts, skills, and practice. This text also addresses the increasing awareness of social justice and the impact of society on individual health, with a shift from individual-centred care to population- and community-centred care. A completely new chapter includes specific, practical information in helpful case studies with questions for students to address and example nursing reflections.

Critical View boxes with discussion questions on contemporary issues have been strengthened to include a social justice and equity lens

Determinants of Health boxes have been expanded to explore more critically the meaning and impact of facts presented to stimulate class discussion

Extensive new section on Aboriginal Peoples in Canada; updated section on working with newcomers

Updated information includes SARS, the H1N1 pandemic, updated global TB statistics, and global and Canadian HIV/AIDS information

WebLinks at the end of each chapter and a robust student and instructor website on Evolve point the way to further resources for research and study
