In our readings on page 208 promoting the health of the family as a unit and “encouraging families to value and incorporate health promotion into their lifestyle are seen as essential components of family nursing practice. Family health promotion refers to the activities that families engage in to strengthen the family as a unit. Family health promotion is defined as achieving maximum family well-being throughout the family life course and includes the biological, emotional, physical, and spiritual realms for family members and the family unit task of families is to teach health maintenance and health promotion, regardless of age.”
