Description

The seventh edition of Promoting Health is an essential book for a range of health practitioners to guide their health promotion practice within a comprehensive primary health care context.

With a new author team featuring Jane Taylor and Lily O’Hara, the book explores the socio-ecological determinants of health and wellbeing as a foundation for holistic, ecological, salutogenic health promotion practice. The health promotion practice cycle, including evidence-based community assessment, program planning, implementation and evaluation, is described in detail. The book also includes chapters on five health promotion action areas.

Promoting Health is a comprehensive, easy-to-understand resource that students and practitioners will find themselves returning to throughout their studies and professional practice.
