Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Betsy Frank, RN, PhD, ANEF (Indiana State University School of Nursing)
Description: This third edition provides an extensive background for the process of health teaching within professional nursing roles. Teaching scenarios across various settings and the entire health-illness spectrum are included.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a foundation in health teaching practices for those who have limited exposure to this content.
Audience: According to the authors, the primary audience is undergraduate students and the secondary audience is graduate students. The writing style lends itself more to graduate student training. Staff nurses would not find this book appropriate for a quick reference.
Features: Most chapters have summary tables that help the reader to quickly grasp the concepts. An extensive list of sources for health teaching materials is included.
Assessment: This book provides an in-depth theoretical basis for the process of health teaching. The authors present pertinent information regarding developmental, age-specific, and cultural influences that affect a person's ability to learn. National standards, laws, and regulations that affect health teaching are noted. More information regarding the latest JCAHO regulations that govern health teaching could have been included. Five chapters are devoted to teaching strategies. These are quite helpful, but more highlighting of the examples given in the text would have allowed the reader to more rapidly locate them. Given the swift growth of the Internet and other computer resources, more space could have been dedicated to their use in the health teaching process. The extensive bibliographies at the end of each chapter are particularly useful to those who wish to pursue particular topics in more depth.
