Lifestyle Nursing examines the concepts of lifestyle medicine and nursing practice, it is specifically designed to help nurses introduce the concepts of lifestyle medicine to readers while also encouraging them to focus on their own wellness. This book features nutritional guidelines and supplemental materials operationalizing this basic nutrition knowledge into personal and patient wellness. It addresses evidence-based findings of chronic diseases including heart diseases and stroke, type 2 diabetes, and cancers, which can often be prevented by lifestyle interventions.

Drawing from nursing and medical literature, this volume in the Lifestyle Medicine series encourages incorporation of lifestyle principles into nursing practices professionally and personally which will lead to overall improved patient outcomes and happier, healthier nurses.

Lifestyle medicine is an evidence-based approach to helping individuals and families adopt and sustain healthy behaviors in preventing, treating, and oftentimes, reversing chronic diseases. This fast-growing specialty operates off six main principles including nutrition, physical activity, stress resilience, cessation or risk reduction of substance use, quality sleep, and social connectivity.

Nurses are the primary providers of hospital-based patient care and deliver most of the nation’s long-term care. Within healthcare, nurses are often tasked with educating patients and families and are thereby well-positioned to address lifestyle intervention with patients.
