This updated and revised text examines the contemporary public health nursing role as a 'hands on' care giver combined with the public health role of community detective and epidemiologist who promotes a healthy, effective partnership with the community. It presents a global focus that is appropriate for our shrinking world and includes disaster and community health threats as well as concepts and goals addressed by the World Health Organization (WHO). The book is used as a graduate level text that focuses on community assessment and development of community health programs that address community health needs. It is also used as an adjunct text in BSN and BSN-completion programs to cover the concepts of community demographics, community assessment, analysis and advocacy.
