Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Reviews from 1st edition:

'This is a really useful text. Health promotion, an essential aspect of the nurse's role, has not previously been given sufficient prominence. The chapters are written by notable authors and despite their diversity, there is continuity to it, giving it an overall coherence and sense of whole. This is a thoroughly useful text.’ (Nursing Times)

'Health promotion, an essential aspect of the nurse's role, has not previously been given sufficient prominence...this is a thoroughly useful text and contains, as it says "vital notes for nurses."' (Nursing Times, 2 Oct 2007)

'This book is readable, consistent and relays some important messages for students and experienced nurses.' (Nursing Standard, 24 October 2007)
