About this book

This book provides nurses, clinicians, practitioners, educators and students working with vulnerable and underserved populations with essential information on effective wellness strategies to address inadequate nutrition, promote physical activity, and reduce perceived stress through an integrative health nursing framework.

It begins with an overview of cultural humility, health inequities, and social justice, establishing the need for an integrative health nursing framework. In turn, the book addresses a broad range of interventions; particular attention is given to wellness strategies designed to prevent the adverse effects of poor nutrition, perceived stress, and lack of physical activity. 

Written by respected experts in the field, the book offers readers valuable insights into strategies for working with vulnerable populations. Accordingly, it will appeal to researchers working to diminish health inequities among vulnerable populations, and will be of particular interest to nursing educators, practitioners, and students.

About the authors

Amber Vermeesch, PhD, MSN, FNP-C, RN, CNE, Associate Professor of Nursing at the University of Portland, US, has been a practicing family nurse practitioner for over 13 years. She has spent most of her practice serving underinsured and vulnerable populations in a variety of clinical settings. She completed her master’s in nursing at Vanderbilt University School of Nursing and earned her PhD in nursing science from the University of Miami where she focused on the reduction of healthcare disparities among Latino populations. 

Her overall area of expertise is wellness, both physical and emotional. Her investigations have concentrated on physical activity as a means of obesity prevention among vulnerable populations, stress reduction and health promotion among undergraduates and graduate students as well as faculty and staff and developing cultural sensibility and humility among nursing students of all levels.

Reviews

“This book is uniquely necessary as it thoroughly addresses health through a multimodal lens not often considered by educators, practitioners, clinicians, researchers, and students. … Professionals across various disciplines could benefit from strategies and interventions surrounding cultural humility, social justice, mindfulness and stress reduction, self-care, nutrition strategies, wellness, and mental health approaches.” (Rachel S Simmons, Doody's Book Reviews, April 9, 2021)
