Policy and Strategy for Improving Health and Wellbeing

The book is divided into two sections, with section one covering a strategic overview of national policies, and section two giving specific local implementation of policy examples to support section one. Case studies and examples will help the reader to understand the policy and strategy and to apply them to their local setting.
This book is very UK focused and many of my students are from overseas, so it can't be a recommended text. However, I like the way it references the professional course curricula, which makes it particularly useful and usable for students on those courses.
Excellent text with good chapters on policy and strategy - very pertinent for health and social care students.
The chapters are supported with good diagrams, theory and models and relevant examples from health and social care sector
I'm also going to draw this book to students attention on other modules because of the developing a strategy for implementing policy chapter. This is so relevant to current healthcare practice.
