Editorial Reviews

Cheryl Lapp
Using the U.S. government report, ""Healthy People2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives,"" asa guiding framework for establishing priority areas, this bookdiscusses various dimensions of health promotion across the lifespanfor Americans. The human development focus acknowledges the complexityand diversity of the lived experience by attending to such things asgender and cultural differences in relation to health and quality oflife issues. This is the fourth edition. The purpose is to providecurrent information and a framework for nurses to use when planning andimplementing strategies for the protection and promotion of health. Its application reaches to both an individual unit of service,particularly when discussing disease and injury prevention services,and an aggregate or population-based unit of service when applied tohealth protection. The intent is to address the major health concernsof all Americans and to demonstrate to the reader the relationshipamong research, practice, and outcomes for health. The book isdesigned for a nursing audience concerned with population-basednursing. It is especially helpful as a resource for students ofcommunity health nursing who are simultaneously in a clinical practiceexperience which demands a population focus. It is written at a levelappropriate for baccalaureate nursing students. It has numerousfigures, tables, and photographs which appropriately emphasize pointsof information and add to attractiveness and readability. Contentareas are distinguished by titles printed in red, tables and figuresfrequently are color-contrasted, and all page numbers are highlightedin red. Chapters are written by numerous contributorsas well as theauthors, and the table of contents is followed faithfully in thepresentation of subject matter. Reference material is current andpertinent with an historical frame of reference. This was accomplishedby explaining landmark documents such as the Canadian Lalonde Report of1974, which actually led research and practice into the realm of healthpromotion by pioneering the idea of lifestyle and environment as majordeterminants of human health. This book presents current health dataand related theories and skills that practicing nurses need tounderstand when providing care that targets the promotion andprotection of the public's health. Margaret Newman's theory withemphasis on health patterns is a particularly appropriate applicationof nursing theory. This book is a valuable learning resource fornurses clinically focused on improving the quality of life for allAmericans in our changing healthcare environment.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Cheryl Lapp, MPH (University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh)
Description: Using the U.S. government report, "Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives," as a guiding framework for establishing priority areas, this book discusses various dimensions of health promotion across the lifespan for Americans. The human development focus acknowledges the complexity and diversity of the lived experience by attending to such things as gender and cultural differences in relation to health and quality of life issues. This is the fourth edition.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide current information and a framework for nurses to use when planning and implementing strategies for the protection and promotion of health. Its application reaches to both an individual unit of service, particularly when discussing disease and injury prevention services, and an aggregate or population-based unit of service when applied to health protection. The intent is to address the major health concerns of all Americans and to demonstrate to the reader the relationship among research, practice, and outcomes for health.
Audience: The book is designed for a nursing audience concerned with population-based nursing. It is especially helpful as a resource for students of community health nursing who are simultaneously in a clinical practice experience which demands a population focus. It is written at a level appropriate for baccalaureate nursing students.
Features: It has numerous figures, tables, and photographs which appropriately emphasize points of information and add to attractiveness and readability. Content areas are distinguished by titles printed in red, tables and figures frequently are color-contrasted, and all page numbers are highlighted in red. Chapters are written by numerous contributors as well as the authors, and the table of contents is followed faithfully in the presentation of subject matter. Reference material is current and pertinent with an historical frame of reference. This was accomplished by explaining landmark documents such as the Canadian Lalonde Report of 1974, which actually led research and practice into the realm of health promotion by pioneering the idea of lifestyle and environment as major determinants of human health.
Assessment: This book presents current health data and related theories and skills that practicing nurses need to understand when providing care that targets the promotion and protection of the public's health. Margaret Newman's theory with emphasis on health patterns is a particularly appropriate application of nursing theory. This book is a valuable learning resource for nurses clinically focused on improving the quality of life for all Americans in our changing healthcare environment.
