Summary "This book explores the concepts of advocacy, mediation and collaboration which are implicit to an understanding of health promotion. It clarifies the relationship between health education and health promotion and questions why nurses to date have struggled to incorporate the spirit of enabling health into their current practice. The reality of re-orienting the focus of care is also discussed." "The book outlines a way forward to enable nurses to collectively participate in health action not only for themselves on a personal level, but on a public and professional basis to protect and promote the health of others."--BOOK JACKET
