Community health nursing : a Canadian perspective

Lynnette Leeseberg Stamler (Editor), Lucia Yiu (Editor), Aliyah Dosani (Editor)
"Community Health Nursing: A Canadian Perspective, Fourth Edition, has been written with the undergraduate student in mind. The work on this edition is in response to the needs expressed by faculty and students for a broad, comprehensive, and yet concise textbook providing an overview of community health nursing. Each topic is written on with the understanding that this will be the student's first foray into the community health nursing arena. We have chosen to incorporate the individual, family, community, system, and population as client perspectives throughout the text."-- Provided by publisher
