This requires advocacy on the part of the nurse, for entire communities as well as for the individuals within. The long-awaited sixth edition of Population-based & Community Health Nursing by respected leader and educator Mary Jo Clark has been thoroughly updated with an even stronger population-based nursing approach. Population-based & Community Health Nursing, 6e continues to approach population-based/community health nursing from an aggregate perspective, clearly showing how nurses can serve to improve the health of populations within a community by functioning as advocates on many levels.
