Divided into two sections, this review book provides information on both community and home health nursing. Utilizing a parallel structure, the text focuses on the most important aspects of each discipline. There are special sections regarding cultural considerations, quality management in community health-care services, substance abusing populations, disasters, violence and special populations. Each chapter offers a bibliography, study questions and answer key, with rationale for correct and incorrect answers. A comprehensive test and answer key at the back of the book are designed for self-assessment and preparation for certification examinations.
