What to expect from the new edition:

· 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.
