This is the first volume on social support from a nursing perspective. The author documents nursing's contribution to the field and analyzes current conceptual controversies. She emphasizes the necessity for a social support based framework and proposes a psychosocial model of health care delivery that incorporates environment, nursing and health and that regards patients as partners, families as allies.
