Excerpt
INTRODUCTION Public health nursing is a special field of nursing that combines the skills of nursing, public health and some phases of social assistance, and functions as part of the total public health programme for the promotion of health, the improvement of conditions in the , ocial and physical environment, rehabilitation, the prevention of illness and disability. It is concerned for the most part with care of well families and with nonhospitalized sick persons and their families, with particular groups of people, and with health problems that affect the community as a whole. Because of the traditionally close relationship between nurses and the families they tend, public health nursing frequently serves as the channel by which many other public health and community services are brought to the public. Public health nursing, as thus defined by a WHO Expert Committee on Nursing, is much wider in scope than nursing in its traditional acceptation as the care of the sick. But not only has the scope of nursing widened; there has also been a great expansion of health services throughout the world, bringing with it an increased demand for nurses. The resulting shortage of nurses has made it essential to study the various functions of nursing, the categories of personnel needed to fulfil these functions, and the training that they should have. The papers collected here deal with public health nursing in various parts of the world in the light of this situation.
