Respected scholars contribute chapters to this comprehensive volume that provide state-of-the-art nursing care for families. Based upon papers presented at the Second International Conference on Family Nursing, it offers significant directions for cross-cutting issues in practice, education research, and theory to bridge the gap between perceived needs and expectations of families and the practice of nursing of families. Among the diverse and compelling issues explored are policy and economic issues, theory development, research methodology (sampling and scoring family data, practice issues, and education), and contemporary topics such as cross-cultural concerns, HIV/AIDS, feminist perspectives on family nursing research, and homeless mothers and their children. A final section utilizes meta-analysis techniques to answer the question, "Does family intervention make a difference?" This volume will be a valuable resource for graduate students and faculty of nursing, family studies, health services, and social work programs. Clinicians, and others interested in the most recent developments in the field of family nursing, will also benefit from this outstanding volume. "The strengths of this book are many. . . . The contributors are leaders in the family nursing and health care field. This book belongs on the shelf of serious family health care professionals, whether they practice in the clinical area, conduct research, teach, or are involved in policymaking. The book also provides a good reference for graduate students in any health care discipline. I am proud that nurses, along with other family social scientists, are embracing the family as a unit of care/analysis, and this collection represents some of the latest thinking toward this end." --Family Relations

"It is very exciting to see all of these studies compiled in one book. It can be read sequentially or just for certain transitions. It also can be used as a template for compilation of other concepts central to nursing and can serve as a resource for further studies in transitions. It is an excellent addition to the nursing literature." Score: 95, 4 Stars. --Doody's "Understanding and recognizing transitions are at the heart of health care reform and this current edition, with its numerous clinical examples and descriptions of nursing interventions, provides important lessons that can and should be incorporated into health policy. It is a brilliant book and an important contribution to nursing theory." Kathleen Dracup, RN, DNSc Dean and Professor, School of Nursing University of California San Francisco Afaf Meleis, the dean of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, presents for the first time in a single volume her original "transitions theory" that integrates middle-range theory to assist nurses in facilitating positive transitions for patients, families, and communities. Nurses are consistently relied on to coach and support patients going through major life transitions, such as illness, recovery, pregnancy, old age, and many more. A collection of over 50 articles published from 1975 through 2007 and five newly commissioned articles, Transitions Theory covers developmental, situational, health and illness, organizational, and therapeutic transitions. Each section includes an introduction written by Dr. Meleis in which she offers her historical and practical perspective on transitions. Many of the articles consider the transitional experiences of ethnically diverse patients, women, the elderly, and other minority populations. Key Topics Discussed: Situational transitions, including discharge and relocation transitions (hospital to home, stroke recovery) and immigration transitions (psychological adaptation and impact of migration on family health) Educational transitions, including professional transitions (from RN to BSN and student to professional) Health and illness transitions, including self-care post heart failure, living with chronic illness, living with early dementia, and accepting palliative care Organization transitions, including role transitions from acute care to collaborative practice, and hospital to community practice Nursing therapeutics models of transition, including role supplementation models and debriefing models
