Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health through the provision of information. This volume for health promotion specialists offers practical guidance in, and advice on, three main areas: assessing existing evidence; collecting new evidence; and providing practicable solutions when there is not any evidence. It should enable practitioners to think more broadly about what "doing the right thing" and "doing things right" means, and to use this thinking to inform and educate their practice. Contributions are drawn from experienced health promotion specialists, practitioners and managers.

Review:
The contributors present a timely and essential volume for health promotion specialists looking for practical guidance in and advice on the three most crucial areas in evidence-based medical practice: assessment of existing evidence, collection of new evidence, and discovery of solutions when there is no evidence. The only book devoted to the burgeoning evidence-based approach, this excellent guide offers readers realistic solutions to the myriad problems encountered in health promotion.

Product Description

Review:
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.
