Promoting Health: A Practical Guide, 7th Edition

A Practical Guide

Retaining the features that characterized the phenomenal success of previous editions - namely, authority, accessibility and a user-friendly style - the latest edition of Ewles & Simnett's Promoting Health: A Practical Guide, continues to offer readers with a sound introduction to the theory and practice of promoting public health.

Organised into three parts, the first section, 'Thinking About Health, Health Promotion and Public Health', explains what health, health promotion, public health and health education entail. The second part, 'Planning and Managing Health Promotion and Public Health Practice' focuses on the health promoter's daily work, beginning with a basic planning and evaluation framework followed by a discussion of how to identify and assess needs and priorities. The final part of the book, 'Competence in Health Promotion and Public Health Practice', examines how readers can develop their competence in carrying out a range of activities, including enabling clients to learn in one-to-one and group settings, working with communities and changing policies and practices.

Fully updated throughout by a renowned author, the latest edition of this classic book includes the latest research on the comparative effectiveness of different approaches to health promotion and public health practice, and explores the development of public health communication strategies, including social marketing, social media campaigns, and use of pressure groups and 'nudging'. The book also highlights the latest thinking on a wide variety of topics to ensure relevance to a broad array of practitioners working across differing settings.

Richly endowed with a wide range of interactive exercises and helpful case studies, Ewles & Simnett's Promoting Health: A Practical Guide, seventh edition, will be ideal for anyone involved with health promotion and public health wherever they are based.
