Summary "The health service is changing to emphasise the need for public involvement and empowerment in their own health. The NMC have recognised this in their new standards for pre-registration nursing education, by increasing the knowledge and skills required in health promotion and public health. Student nurses therefore need preparation for practice which brings health promotion into the forefront of nursing care. This book takes an up to date approach to the theory and practice of health promotion and public health, grounded in essential knowledge. It aims to enable nursing students to become health promoting nurses of the future."--Publisher
