Centred on the family as the basic unit of the community, this edition highlights the discussion of aggreegates at risk, with a new chapter on contemporary health issues. The text has been updated to describe the impact that managed care is having on the health care delivery system. The various roles and responsibilities of community health nurses within a spectrum of non-acute care settings such as schools, businesses and industries, clinics and hospice centres are discussed. New to this edition are chapters on minority health, poverty and health, homelessness, substance abuse, sexually transmitted diseases (including HIV/AIDS), and violent and abusive behaviour. Integrated into the text is coverage of the growth of managed care, and there is a new "A view from the field" box, used throughout, presenting first-hand accounts from nurses and patients.

The sections covering communicable disease, disaster nursing, rural care and international health care issues have also been expanded.
