Foreword

“This textbook, Population Health and Its Integration into Advanced Nursing Practice, is a welcome and timely addition to the nursing literature. As advanced practice nurses, we have an opportunity for a more significant and far-reaching impact on healthcare by understanding the array of determinants that impact health and by intervening to utilize comprehensive and upstream strategies and solutions. The focus on population health, as offered by this textbook, supports this level of thinking. With a concentration in advanced nursing care, population health strives toward better health outcomes for the group. Population healthcare hinges on the belief that individuals will benefit when the focus is on improving communal healthcare. The contributors to this textbook have provided readers with information on population health, its fit with advanced practice nursing care, obtaining and using data to drive health, specific population foci across the lifespan, illustrative case studies, policy considerations, education, and social media strategies as sources of health advocacy. This is a one of a kind resource that will pave the way for advanced practice nurses and other healthcare providers to see greater possibilities of practice in advancing the health of all.”

EDILMA L. YEARWOOD, PhD, PMHCNS-BC, FAAN, Past-President International Society of Psychiatric Nurses,  Chair, Department of Professional Nursing Practice,
Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies

From the Preface

 …As we are all aware, healthcare is not cut and dried. We nurses cannot claim a given group has issues because of X, and if Y is done, all will be well. Rather, as advanced practitioners and potential policy influencers, we must grasp the complexities of every case we encounter and address such in hypothetical and actual interventions.

For students, applying the information in this volume to real-life situations will support and reinforce their learning and career development. For those already in practice, this text is designed to increase understanding of the highly specific, often economic and cultural, influences on patients and clients in diverse communities. Being able to recognize the social dynamics allows for better comprehension, more effective intervention, and superior outcomes.
