Health Visiting: Towards Community Health Nursing
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The first edition, originally entitled Health Visiting, quickly became established as the leading textbook in the field. The principles of health visiting practice have since been assimilated into other branches of community health nursing and a new edition, aimed at a wider readership, including the new Project 2000 diploma courses, has become necessary.

Table of Contents

Foreword; Introduction; Knowledge and Practice of Working in the Community; The Community Dimension; Health Visiting and the Community; Assessing Individual and Family Health Needs; Evaluating Practice; Information Technology and Community Health Nursing; Appendices; References and Further Reading; Index
