Healthy Places, Healthy People : A Handbook for Culturally Informed Community Nursing Practice
About this item
At the clinic, in the classroom, and across the globe, nurses are at the forefront of leading change and promoting social justice in healthcare. But this doesn’t just happen. To provide the best possible patient care and effectively improve a community’s future health, nurses need practical advice, realistic strategies, and the core public health leadership competencies[md]community relationship-building, inquiry, assessment, analysis, planning, action, evaluation, and persuasion --that transcend categorical public health concerns. Healthy Places, Healthy People (3rd ed.) provides everything that current and future nurses need to prepare, gather, organize, and analyze basic community information to create a public health strategy. A well-crafted strategy enables public health workers to effectively mobilize citizen action, working with groups and individuals to build capacity for health equity and, ultimately, a healthier future.
