Product description

The new public health agenda calls for the establishment of collaborative partnerships between the various agencies and professional groups that promote health. The second edition of this popular text will help increase understanding and thus facilitate the process of joint working between professionals drawn from different backgrounds with different cultures and ideologies. It has been completely revised and updated to take into account the new policy context and to provide an extensive insight into the variety of professional perspectives on health promotion. The text explores different professional domains and the organisational and policy contexts that can influence the range and nature of interventions. New chapters highlighting significant changes in the NHS and other settings include: * the promotion of health in higher education * the role of Primary Care Groups and Primary Care Trusts * the enhanced role of community nurses * policy initiatives such as Health Improvement Programmes, Health Action Zones and Healthy Living Centres.
With its multi professional approach and explicit consideration of the delivery of interventions in relation to professional domains and organisational contexts, this text will appeal to a wide variety of health professionals, and offer students a valuable insight into contemporary health promotion in practice.
