With health education now an established function of all nurses, this is a timely new edition of Churchill Livingstone's successful textbook on health education, written specifically for nurses. It gives some necessary background on health promotion and health education - what it is, theories of learning and teaching, types of communication involved. It then emphasises the nurse's teaching role and interactive - rather than didactic - approach. Exercises (new for this edition) will be a boon for teachers trying to incorporate health into the curriculum. Features: * New to this edition: * as all nurses are now being trained to work in the community, includes community, all-branch orientation * includes boxes and exercises to help clarify text and aid application of theory to practice * includes 2 new chapters highly relevant to today's student - on research and health education projects * covers more primary and secondary health education
