Annual Review of Nursing Research, v. 25 - Vulnerable Populations (Hardcover, 2007): Joyce J. Fitzpatrick Annual Review of Nursing Research, v. 25 - Vulnerable Populations (Hardcover, 2007)

R1,710 Discovery Miles 17 100 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In the health care arena, "vulnerable populations" refers to those groups whose vulnerability increases their potential to suffer health disparities - disparities generally brought about by racial and ethnic discrimination and poverty. Since Florence Nightingale, nurses have long demonstrated dedication and aptitude for identifying persons, groups, and environments in need of intervention and new approaches for assessing and reducing vulnerability. The 25th issue of "ARNR" extends that dedication with landmark research, tests of interventions, and theoretical reviews that bring us closer to the goals of Healthy People 2010 (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2000) for the elimination of health disparities. The book posits that nurses are uniquely positioned to lead the way in this regard, through community-based projects and active partnerships with intervention recipients. Stressing the need for nurses to move to the forefront in the important research needed to design and implement effective interventions, this new 25th volume in the "Annual Review of Nursing Research" (ARNR) series continues to provide the highest standards of content and authoritative review of research for students, researchers, and clinicians.

The NHS is in crisis - it's in record demand, and care services are at breaking point - but what if the solution to rescuing the NHS is in the hands of the patients themselves?

Filled with hard-won wisdom and everyday heroism, The Patient Revolution challenges current discourse and sets out an empowering vision of how patient leaders can change the future of healthcare.
