Members of the academic nursing team at the university have recently completed new text book: Nursing for Public Health – Promotion, Principles and Practice. Edited by Paul Linsley, Ros Kane and Sara Owen the book includes contributions from all members of the team and from many colleagues outside the university.
The book, aimed primarily at pre-registration nursing students reflects the growing need for all nurses to become involved in the promotion of health and well-being of both their patients and of the wider population. The book seeks to provide a clear, academic and practical account of the increasing importance of public health knowledge for all nursing practice. The book was published by Oxford University Press in February 2011.
