Green & Tones' Health Promotion

Green & Tones' Health Promotion
Planning & Strategies

Fifth Edition
Edited by:
Additional resources:

January 2024 | 624 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

What to expect from the new edition:

·       Full discussion on the impacts from Covid-19 on health strategy

·       Increased emphasis on upstream interventions rather than patient-centred, individualised (downstream) approaches

·       Increased internationalisation – more comparative examples and international perspectives prioritising northern Europe, Scandinavia and the US

Health promotion is being taught to an increasingly diverse range of students, either because of background, future career plans or the increasing international student numbers. 
This book provides international examples, applicable to a range of health professions, to meet the needs of diverse cohorts. The international case studies provided online also mean that international students in the UK have access to cases that can be more relevant to their own countries.

It can be a challenge understanding the 'softer side' of health science, particularly understanding how to think outside an individual responsibility for Health promotion/public health. The focus of this book is setting out the process of planning, implementing and evaluating successful health programmes meaning that you are introduced to the 'softer side' in an applied way - making it easier for you to see the importance of what you are studying.

A brilliant update to a staple favourite on my book shelves. This text book provides information on a range of topics that are easily accessed and understood. Embedding the core functions of health promotion in to our teaching and practice helps to tackle health inequalities across the board. I use this book to aid my teaching and also when writing papers myself. Great quality and trusted information from established professionals in their field.
