Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michele Issel, PhD, RN (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Description: The 16 contributed chapters in this book give an overview of the practice of public health nursing. Each chapter has case studies, learning objectives, and a list of key terms.
Purpose: The purpose is to give nurses a framework for practicing population-based nursing. Understanding approaches to working in and with communities is central to the practice of public health nursing. Overall, the authors give a solid foundation upon which nurses might expand their practice into population-based care.
Audience: The audience is primarily nursing students, but also includes nurses whose practice extends into the community. Most of the chapters seem aimed at the undergraduate level, presenting basic information. The editors have experience teaching public health nursing, as do the chapter authors.
Features: The first seven chapters cover the basics related to public health and public health nursing, with minimal depth to the topics. The next six chapters are devoted to public health nursing interventions, and some contain case studies of the interventions. The remaining chapters address issues in public health nursing. In the first chapter, a model is presented for systematic improvement of population health, but, unfortunately, this model is not integrated across all the chapters.
Assessment: Overall, this book serves as a thorough introduction to public health nursing, but lacks the depth and detail of the classic textbook, Foundations of Nursing in the Community: Community-Oriented Practice, 3rd edition, Stanhope and Lancaster (Elsevier, 2010).
