This sixth volume in the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale reports Nightingale's considerable accomplishments in the development of a public health care system based on health promotion and disease prevention. It follows directly from her understanding of social science and broader social reform activities, which were related in Society and Politics (Volume 5). Public Health Care includes a critical edition of Notes on Nursing for the Labouring Classes, papers on mortality in aboriginal schools and hospitals, and on rural health. It reports much unknown material on Nightingale's signal contribution of bringing professional nursing into the dreaded workhouse infirmaries. This collection presents letters and notes on a wide range of issues from specific diseases to germ theory, and relates some of her own extensive work as a nurse practitioner, which included organizing referrals to doctors and providing related care. The Series and the Set The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale comprises all surviving writing of Florence Nightingale, featuring original material from over 200 archives and private collections worldwide. Known as the heroine of the Crimean War and the major founder of the modern profession of nursing, Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) is affirmed as a scholar, theorist, and social reformer of enormous scope and importance. This series demonstrates her astute use of the political process; reports on her extensive correspondence with royalty, viceroys, cabinet ministers, and international leaders; and contains a great deal of previously unpublished material--Florence Nightingale is revealed as so much more than the "lady with the lamp." The Collected Works of Florence Nightingale is indispensable to scholars, and accessible and revealing to the general reader. All sixteen volumes can be purchased together at a reduced cost with the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale: The Complete Set.
