Social Theory and Nursing Practice

Part of the Sociology and Nursing Practice Series


Social Theory and Nursing Practice by Sam Porter

This volume launches an exciting new series which explores the relationship between sociological principles and nursing practice. It introduces the nurse to social theory, and examines its importance in the development of nursing's own theoretical base. The relevance of theory to what is essentially a practical discipline is amply demonstrated.This book and its followers will be essential reading for students at both pre-registration and post-registration levels. Many practitioners will also find much to stimulate them.
