Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Significantly updated and thoroughly revised, the 4th Edition approaches family nursing the way it is practiced today with an evidence-based, clinical focus built on a firm foundation of theory and research. From health promotion to end of life, a new organizational structure parallels the trajectory of illness, incorporating caring for the family along this continuum of care in a variety of specialties.

Book News Annotation:

For nursing students and practicing nurses, Kaakinen (nursing, U. of Portland) et al. integrate theory, practice, and research in their discussion of family nursing care through the family life cycle and across a variety of clinical specialties. Practitioners, researchers, theorists, scholars, nursing teachers, and family social scientists from the US, Canada, and UK provide the 19 chapters. Rewritten, this edition has new chapters on families in palliative and end-of-life care, culturally sensitive care, the Canadian context, advanced family nursing, and care of families in disaster and war. It has an emphasis on evidence-based care, integrates five family nursing theories and case studies, adds many new contributors, and aims to make family practice more meaningful and realistic for students. The chapter on family social policy has been expanded to include health disparities. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

For the nursing student. The previous edition of this title focused heavily on theory and research; this edition will enhance that material with a greater emphasis on clinical practice using theory and research as the evidence that supports the clinical content. This approach is more in-line with how nursing is taught today. Another key change will be in the organization of clinical content, presenting it according to the trajectory of illness. It will begin with health promotion and finish with end-of-life, incorporating caring for the family along this continuum in a variety of specialties.
