""This volume should be quite useful to the target audience. It provides a good foundation for evidence-based practice and further research (4 stars).""
--Doody's Book Review Service

The nursing community is continually challenged with expanding the empirical knowledge base that informs rural nursing practice. This volume of the prestigious "Annual Review of Nursing Research, Focus on Rural Health," addresses this challenge. Contributors have developed creative and effective strategies to identify relevant research and present them in the context of the rural delivery system.

Topics include:

  • Nursing Research to Meet Health Care Needs of Rural Populations
  • Improving Systems, Quality of Care & Patient Safety
  • Improving Cultural Relevance of Rural Nursing Research: Methodological Issues, Constraints, and Opportunities
  • Also included: Contents of Previous 10 Volumes

The contributors, all noted nurse scientists, discuss the key problems they deal with on a daily basis, utilizing recent rural and general health policy reports. This approach allows readers to learn new techniques and strategies for rural nursing practice that are firmly grounded in the evidence. While the primary examples are drawn from American contexts, a special chapter on global perspectives highlights analogous problems and issues that rural nursing research raises across countries, particularly the availability of resources.

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.
