Helps pre reg BSc nursing students understand the social and behavioural foundations of public Health.
An excellent book containing all of the information I required to teach this subject. I am sure that I will refer to this book on a regular basis.
This is an excellent book and introduces a number of subject areas essential to my students reading. This would be essential if the focus gave examples outside of America more regularly as the information is not always generalisable into UK population. It would be useful to have a UK edition.
Best fit for the type of course content coverage. Readability and use of great examples/case studies.
Largely, explores topic areas from a North American viewpoint and therefore, not entirely relevant to the situation in the UK.
Some chapters do apply and will be assigned as recommended readings, but too few chapters directly apply to our course to ask students to purchase the book. I have asked our library to purchase a few copies so the students can consult when needed.
This is an interesting and unusual text for students of public health. I feel that it is more relevant to students taking health subjects rather than a multi-disciplinary Early Childhood program, but is it has some useful chapters which I use in teaching. We have ordered a copy for the library.
This is a great book for a graduate course in behavioral and social factors in public health.
I will be using it as one of the texts fro the PhD level course "Population Health and Policy"
Excellent approach to public health. Very much needed!!!
