All nurses have a responsibility to promote healthy lifestyles and behaviours. Being at the heart of patient care, nurses have the potential to make huge differences to their patients understanding and view of health but need the skills and knowledge to be able to do so. Following the 'Making Every Contact Count' approach, this book provides the key information nursing students need when considering how to promote better health and introduces simple strategies to integrate into their day-to-day practice.
