Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Janice E. Stephens, PhD, RN (Montana State University-Bozeman Great Falls Campus)
Description: This book first presents a comprehensive overview of the theory, practice, and research issues of family health care nursing in Unit I. The clinical application section in Unit II describes family nursing practice for various levels of practitioners in traditional nursing practice areas. Nursing process and health promotion concepts are included. Family is defined broadly to include multiple family structures, and families are viewed from a physical, psychosocial-emotional, cultural, and spiritual holistic perspective.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a resource to facilitate the acquisition of a theoretical and conceptual foundation in family healthcare nursing, and demonstrate application of theory for beginning and advanced family nursing practice roles in various specialty areas.
Audience: The book is targeted to undergraduate and graduate students, and various levels of practitioners working in childbearing, family-child, gerontology, medical-surgical, psychiatric-mental health, and community health nursing practice settings. The resource would be useful for nurse educators. The editors and contributors are nationally recognized family nursing experts.
Features: This attractive family healthcare nursing book has numerous visuals to highlight key points. Chapter summaries, study questions with answers, and references are included. Theory application concepts are effectively presented through clinical case studies. A strong feature is the focus on diverse family health care nursing roles through nurse-family partnerships. The appendixes include a resource list, glossary, and assessment-research instruments.
Assessment: This book is an excellent resource to promote acquisition and application of family concepts for beginning and advanced family nursing practice roles in a variety of specialty areas. A strength is the theory, practice, and research emphasis. Family nursing instruments, the nursing process, and health promotion concepts are important components. The book would be useful as a text or a resource, and is appropriate for individual, healthcare facility, or nursing education library purchase.
