Explorations in Family Nursing Summary

Explorations in Family Nursing by Dorothy Whyte

Explorations in Family Nursing examines a systemic approach to care which can be applied both in hospital and community settings. Working collaboratively with the family, the nurse is able to strengthen the level of care available to the patient and promote the health and well-being of the whole family.

The book examines the theory underpinning family nursing and establishes the principles, including how to make assessments, plan interventions and evaluate progress. A team of experienced contributors demonstrate how widely family nursing strategies can be applied in practice and cover issues including:

* children with chronic and terminal illnesses
* children with learning disabilities
* adolescents
* frail elderly people
* patients in intensive care

Suitable for practitioners and for students from Diploma to post-graduate level , Explorations in Family Nursing makes a timely and relevant contribution to the development of nursing practice.
