  • Details

The book explains how to assess a faith community and design, implement, and evaluate nursing programs that meet the needs of its different populations across the life span. It explores various faith community nursing models along with their legal and ethical considerations, and the different roles available for faith community nurses. Meeting special needs within faith communities (acute care, chronic care, palliative care, grief, and loss) is addressed, as is serving its wide variety of vulnerable populations (elderly, impoverished, etc.). The foundations and practice of faith community nursing are also presented within the context of different faiths, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Ideal in a clinical setting, this book will also be of value as a quick refresher for certifying as a faith community nurse.
