Problem Solving for Better Healthcovers human potential and possibilities for change in a global environment where health issues have now reached crisis proportions. Through the Dreyfus Health Foundation's Problem Solving for Better HealthÆ and related programs, this book presents innovative methodologies that promote grass-roots solutions to pressing health issues. A progress report and call to further action, the book speaks to such issues in 27 countries, including the United States.

With contributions from Dreyfus Health Foundation international program leaders and esteemed health care practitioners and educators, Problem Solving for Better Health presents practical interventions through community and institutional initiatives to improve health and quality of life. The tools presented are currently integrated into nursing and medical curricula internationally, including 75 medical institutions in India and 20 in China. This book is an essential resource for doctors, nurses, public health care providers, and individuals working at the community, institutional, and policy levels.

  • Offers new approaches to health challenges at the local level for teachers and students in nursing, public health, medicine, and health policy programs
  • Provides useful problem-solving tools now in use in various settings internationally
  • Gives examples of interventions that have influenced policy in and across institutions and at the national level
