Introduction Thinking health promotion Tackling lifestyle change Encouraging health screening Teaching patients Supporting self-management Considering public health Managing health promotion in practice Keeping up your skills


The health service is changing to emphasise the need for public involvement and empowerment in their own health. Student nurses therefore need preparation for practice which brings health promotion into the forefront of nursing care. Written in clear language this book provides a practical guide to what health promotion is and how it interacts with public health. It focuses on the real world and explains carefully how health promotion can be implemented in practical terms, while drawing on the main theories and models. The book covers the essential topics like lifestyle changes, health screening and teaching patients enabling nursing students to become health promoting nurses of the future. The second edition has been updated to reflect the health promotion landscape following the transfer of responsibilities from the NHS to local authorities. It also contains additional coverage on health promotion for mental health, children and young people.
