Summary Asserts the need for an integrated approach to health promotion as being central to the work of all health care workers. Puts health promotion into an international and national context by linking chapters to WHO Regional European targets and the UK strategy identified in 'Health of the Nation' and parallel initiatives in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Uses activities, case studies, and detailed applications of nursing models to show the links to nursing practice, and encourages the development of a health promotion portfolio. Offers a unique analysis of social values and ethics as well as expert consideration of environmental issues
