Distinguished by abundant patient and health provider narratives highlighting the impact of health disparities on health outcomes worldwide, A Population Health Approach to Health Disparities for Nurses is a scholarly yet practical text that prepares RN-BSN, DNP, and PhD students to work toward improving community health for a variety of underserved and vulnerable populations. Grounded in the population health approach addressed in the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Essentials, it delivers practical steps nurses can take to address population health goals, including the improvement of quality of care, access to healthcare, outcomes, and cost management. Written by lawyers, physicians, social workers, statisticians and economists, psychologists, ethicists, finance experts, population health specialists, anthropologists, and nurses, the text emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach to learning and all components of healthcare—delivery of care, policy, research, and teaching. It examines demographic differences, chronic and acute health conditions, and the health needs of the unserved/underserved across the life cycle. It highlights the importance of understanding the social determinants of health and discusses ways to address health disparities through changes in public policy, attitudes, beliefs, education, research, and advocacy.
