Synopsis

Public and Community Health Nursing Practice A Population-Based Approach by Demetrius J. Porche

Public health practice focuses on the prevention of disease and disability as a means of promoting the health of communities and the individuals who make up those communities. Public and Community Health Nursing Practice presents a comprehensive summary of core practices for assessment, assurance, and policy development to achieve this goal through population-based practice. The author also outlines standards for evidence-based practice based on current research. This book will be of interest to students in nursing, public health, and behavioral medicine and practitioners in public and community health.

Reviews

A very comprehensive approach to public health - community health. I feel that the content and direction are very much needed. -- Clair P. Millet, APRN, MN, CNS

This text is needed very badly-especially with advanced practice. Most graduate nursing programs focus on primary care and an important component of primary care is community health and public health issues. This book contains much needed information required for advanced nursing practice in primary care. I know of no other text so complete. -- Jacqueline Rhoads
