"The changing structure of the basic family unit will have a certain impact on family health and healthcare. Family health nursing takes this into account and provides for a holistic approach to healthcare that incorporates the working of the family into health assessments (Anderson, 2000). In doing so, the nurse will take into account the dynamics of the family in order to assess, implement and evaluate care."
