Compelling family nursing issues are explored in this volume, which addresses practice, research and theory in order to bridge the gap between families' needs and expectations and the practice of family nursing. Contemporary issues such as cross-cultural concerns, HIV/AIDS and the health of homeless mothers and children are examined; sections are also devoted to policy and economic issues, theory development, research, practice and education. A final section provides an integrative review which examines whether family intervention actually helps.
