From the cover: Community health nursing is the interface between primary health care and the more traditional, illness-oriented structures of service delivery. It involves empowering the individual to achieve wellness.
In this book, Anne McMurray blends theory with an international perspective to analyse the role, scope, and function of the community health nurse. The political contexts of this increasingly important nursing role and the issue of accountability in practice are also addressed. She encourages the reader to embrace an holistic approach; the emphasis is on the nurse as mediator, educator, and facilitator.
Community Health Nursing: primary health care in practice shows how the goal of culturally sensitive, self-determined health care can be achieved.
