Transforming Health Promotion Practice: Concepts, Issues, and Applications

Front Cover
F.A. Davis Company, 2002 - Medical - 355 pages
This text presents a new paradigm for nursing's health promotion role that is most suited to the way health care is now being viewed and delivered. It focuses on client-centred health promotion practice rather than imposing the health care provider's interpretations of the client's needs. The authors address the application of health promotion to nursing, while exploring a variety of concepts and topics in their relationship to health promotion, such as: ethics; consumerism; therapeutic relationships and communication; self-care; and advocacy. The book encourages student interaction by the use of many real-life examples from practice, case study development of content, critical thinking questions, and study questions.
