The new, 2nd Edition of this AJN Book of the Year continues its leadership role with the aggregate approach in community health nursing. It addresses the health care needs not only of individuals and families, but groups within the community, including population subgroups such as females, the homeless, ethnic groups, and more. In short, this provocative text broadens the reader's view of community health nursing, prepares them to effect change in their community, and inspires them to improve the quality of the health care system. Features: * A theoretical basis of up-stream thinking and social justice is carried through all chapters, to motivate and inspire students. * The unit on diversity, Special Needs of Aggregates, has been expanded to address more issues on providing nursing care in a multi-cultural environment. * Pedagogical aids are throughout the text, including learning objectives, case studies, boxed summaries and references, learning activities, and more. New to this edition: * The Community Health Education chapter is completely new by an outstanding new contributor. * New chapters include The Homeless, and School Health. * New appendices: Managed Care, Primary Health Care and Clinic Based Services, and Healthy People 2000 Midcourse Review.
