Interest in, and commitment to, an evidence-based approach to clinical and medical practice has grown over the last few years. This has fuelled a debate about evidence-based health promotion. While few would argue about the principle that all health-promotion practice should have its basis in sound evidence, there is a lively discussion about exactly what this means and the ways of achieving it. Through the experience of health-promotion practitioners and academics from a variety of professional backgrounds, Evidence-based Health Promotion considers the theory and practice of:
- Assessing existing evidence
- Collecting new evidence
- Making decisions when the evidence is imperfect&/UL;
This volume will challenge those involved with health promotion to think more broadly about what doing the right thing and doing things right mean, and to use this thinking to inform their practice is, therefore, essential reading for those who are involved in health promotion as part of their practice, health-promotion specialists, managers responsible for purchasing or providing services, and students.
