About this title


As the gold standard for evidence-based public health, this book will be a primary resource for improving health and preventing disease, whether in states, communities, local organizations, healthcare organizations, worksites, or schools. Developed under the leadership of the independent, non-federal Task Force on Community Preventive Services, the Guide is based on comprehensive, systematic review methods for evaluating population-oriented health interventions. Its recommendations are explicitly linked to the scientific evidence gathered from these systematic reviews, which evaluated interventions for their quality based on study design and execution. The book examines the effectiveness, economic efficiency, and feasibility of efforts to combat such risky behaviors as tobacco use, physical inactivity, and violence; to reduce the impact of specific conditions such as cancer, diabetes, vaccine-preventable diseases, and motor vehicle injuries; and to address social determinants of health such as education, housing, and access to care. The chapters are grouped into three broad categories: changing risk behaviors; reducing specific diseases, injuries, and impairments; and methodological background for the book itself. All health professionals should find this book an indispensable source of practical, science-based information for making better decisions about effective approaches to health promotion and disease prevention. It will serve as a filter for the large, inconsistent, or seemingly inaccessible scientific literature on specific health problems.
