Considered by many as the standard for community health nursing, "Community and Public Health Nursing" continues to provide student and practicing nurses with a foundation of community and public health nursing concepts and interventions for individuals, families, and communities. The unifying approach of this text is an integration of health promotion and disease prevention concepts into the multifaceted role of population-focused, community-oriented nursing practice. Numerous pedagogical features provide an accessible and challenging learning experience. New content in the sixth edition includes additional population-focused clinical examples; increased coverage of primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of prevention; expanded community assessment content; and updated approaches to disaster management in the wake of September 11th. New features include Healthy People 2010 national health objectives and The Cutting Edge boxes that highlight current significant and controversial issues in community health.
