Family Nursing and Healthcare

 Family health care nursing is an art and a science that has evolved as a way of thinking about, and working with, families when a member experiences a health problem. Family nursing comprises a philosophy and a way of interacting with clients that affects how nurses collect information, intervene with patients, advocate for patients, and approach spiritual care with families. This philosophy and practice incorporates the following assumptions: health affects all members of families, health and illness are family events, and families influence the process and outcome of health care. All health care practices, attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, and decisions are made within the context of larger family and societal systems. Families vary in structure, function, and processes. Families even vary within given cultures because every family has its own unique culture. People who come from the same family of origin create different families over time. Nurses need to be knowledgeable in the theory of families, as well as the structure, function, and processes of families to assist them in achieving or maintaining a state of health.
