Question
Assumption 5: Public Health Nursing Practice Emphasizes Prevention

Test Answer

Prevention is “anticipatory action taken to prevent the occurrence of an event or to minimize its effect after it has occurred” (Turnock, 2009, p 516). Prevention is customarily described as a continuum moving from primary to tertiary prevention (Leavell and Clark, 1965; Novick and Mays, 2001; Turnock, 2009). The Levels of Prevention box provides definitions and examples of the levels of prevention.
