The second edition of Community Health Nursing in Canada has been extensively revised and is informed by the most current research available. This comprehensive textbook introduces undergraduate nursing students to community health nursing concepts, skills, and practice. This text also addresses the increasing awareness of social justice and the impact of society on individual health, with a shift from individual-centred care to population- and community-centred care. A completely new chapter includes specific, practical information in helpful case studies with questions for students to address and example nursing reflections.
