Public Health and Health Promotion for Nurses at a Glance is the perfect companion for study and revision for nursing students and practitioners. Health promotion is a growing core component of nursing care, and this text combines superb illustrations with accessible information to make the key concepts of health promotion clear and easy to understand. It also provides guidance for how this can be applied in daily practice in all fields of nursing to promote the health of individual patients and communities.

Divided into six sections, the first looks at the relationship between the outcomes of public health and the outcomes of nursing, before going on to explore the definitions and different approaches of health promotion.This includes the causes and determinants of morbidity and mortality, and the skills and resources that can support nurses in promoting health with individual patients. It also examines strategies for working with communities to improve health, as well as the ethics of health promotion in nursing.
* The perfect revision and consolidation textbook
* Closely linked with the public health outcomes as represented by the NMC, the 6Cs of nursing, essential nursing skills clusters as well as the implications for nursing arising from recent inquiries.
* Highly visual colour presentation, with full colour illustrations throughout
