Rural Nursing: Concepts, Theory, and Practice

Rural Nursing: Concepts, Theory, and Practice (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This book will provide you with a broad understanding of the characteristics of health care in rural settings and what is required for effective nursing practice in this context. This thoroughly revised second edition chronicles the path to creating a coherent, conceptual framework for rural nursing practice. By bringing together research, theory, and narratives from rural nursing practice, the authors and contributors provide readers with a foundation for understanding the special dimensions of rural nursing and health. The features include: new chapters on rural family health, rural public health, chronic illness, online intervention, men as rural nurses, and environmental health; negotiating issues of confidentiality and over-familiarity with the lives of patients; self-reliant rural dwellers seeking health care as a last resort, often when they are no longer able to work due to illness; remote locations often playing a life-or-death role in whether health care is accessed in a timely manner; and environmental health hazards in rural areas due to the unloading of hazardous waste in their locations by more populated areas.
