About this book


Research in Health Promotion and Nursing presents a refreshing research- based perspective on the vital relationships between health promotion and nursing practice. Contributions have been sought from a distinguished group of health professionals whose expertise spans all areas of nursing, midwifery, health visiting and health education. The main sections of the book focus on ethical and theoretical issues, nurse's perceptions, health promotion in practice, the nurse's developing health promotion role and the impact of nursing interventions on patients' lifestyles. This text moves beyond rhetoric by demonstrating the vital importance of empirical research and the evaluation of practice, often raising more questions than it answers, and providing a thought-provoking series of jumping-off points for all health professionals interested in progressive practice.
