9780273723851: Promoting Healthy Behaviour: A Practical Guide for Nursing and Healthcare Professionals

Lifestyle diseases are the scourge of the modern Western world.  Smoking, eating badly, not exercising, excessive drinking: these are but a few of the major challenges facing the NHS. People understand why these habits are bad for them, and most people understand how to tackle them Ė so why is it that so many people donít have a healthy lifestyle? And, more importantly, how can we change this?

This book is designed for healthcare professionals of all types, at any stage in their career. It addresses the role psychology can play in reversing poor lifestyles, putting theory into practice in the most effective and simple ways.  

Including case studies, evidence based practical suggestions and key points, the text will provide an invaluable resource for all of those involved in lifestyle change.

"As a nursing student this book has proved invaluable in understanding the theory of health promotion, whilst providing practical ways in which both nurses and other healthcare professionals can apply this theory in practice."  Natalie Liddle, nursing student, Lincoln University

"Easy to read and well presented key topics in promoting healthy behaviour. The topical discussions will undoubtedly engage student nurses." Susan Thomas, Faculty of Health, John Moores University
