Significantly updated and thoroughly revised, the 4th edition approaches family nursing the way it is practiced today - with an evidence-based, clinical focus built on a firm foundation of theory and research. From health promotion to end of life, a new organizational structure parallels the trajectory of illness, incorporating caring for the family along this continuum of care in a variety of specialties. This title contains family nursing chapters organized by trajectory of illness and based on evidence-based reviews of the literature and nursing interventions effective in everyday practice. It includes: discussions of four theoretical models, Family Ecological Theory, Family Resiliency Model, Family Systems Model, and Family Life Cycle Model; two new chapters, Family Social Policy and Health Disparities and Families in Disaster; s genogram and an ecomap in each clinical chapter, as well as suggestions for other screening assessment tools, when appropriate; and, coverage of families dealing with end-of-life issues now in a single chapter.
