9781444335811: Health Visiting: A Rediscovery

This timely and relevant new edition of an established and well-regarded text is essential reading for those training to become health visitors and those who are practitioners working with and in the community. Health Visiting: A Rediscovery has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the many new developments in health policy, public health priorities and health visiting practice. The focus of the book, however, remains the same: placing the health visitor at the forefront of supporting and working with children and families, ensuring the child has the best possible start in life. The increasing importance of working with communities and reaffirming the public health role of the health visitor are discussed and debated. The new edition takes into account the challenges and increasing need for health visitors to engage with research evidence and to evaluate their practice.

Key features:

  • Incorporates the practice of public health and working with communities
  • Includes a brand new chapter on the importance of safeguarding children and the enhanced child protection role of the health visitor
  • Timely and topical
  • Essential reading for all nurses working in the community, those training as Specialist Community Public Health Nurses and undergraduate students undertaking public health, primary and community care course units
  • Features case studies and learning activities

Review:

“However, for the time being, it remains a valuable resource for health visiting students across the country.”  (Journal of Health Visiting, 1 February 2014)

“Overall, however, this is a welcome updating of a classic publication.”  (Nursing Children and Young People, 1 March 2013)

“I would expect this book to be a port of call for many students health visitors and I think readers will find it covers a wide range of interesting, relevant subjects ... However, this shouldn’t deter them from reading this instructive, concisely edited book.”  (Community Practitioner, 1 July 2012)
