In the twenty-first century, public health is everyone’s business.

Providing an opportunity for practitioners to understand possible barriers to lifestyle change, debate health inequalities and responsibilities, and explore the role of the media in changing attitudes, it: Outlines the roles of specific organisations involved in the work of public health work. Covers health needs assessment, agenda setting and the technical aspects of how to research plan and evaluate effective practice either with individual clients or when devising programmes and initiatives for population groups. Details methods of helping people with motivation for lifestyle change, building rapport, ongoing support, monitoring and signposting to specific services.

'This book, written from an international perspective and thus eminently readable by a wider audience, draws on the author's considerable experience and is amply supplied with a good range of illustrations from real-life practice...The logical structure and accessible style makes this a useful addition to the personal library of anyone who has an interest in "bottom-up" empowerment-based approaches to health promotion' - RCN Research Headlines 'The author draws on a wealth of personal experiences in the field, giving the book both readability and credibility. Good examples from different international contexts, illustrated in relevant case studies, let the reader relate theory to practice and bring the concepts to life. The author takes the central thrust of health promotion for the past few decades and unravels it for the reader in a clear, comprehensive way' - Health Matters In health promotion, the concept of power can be defined as the ability to create or resist change, and this is an important foundation for individual and community health. By enabling people to empower themselves, health promoters can provide the capacity for the individual or community to change their lives and their living conditions, and therefore their health. Health Promotion Practice explores the issue of how such an approach to health promotion practice can improve a community's success towards achieving healthier conditions through its own actions. Placing empowerment at the heart of health promotion practice, and offering advice for health promoters who accept the challenge to work in such a way, Health Promotion Practice defines key concepts of health, health promotion and community empowerment. It also: Introduces readers to a 'social' model of health promotion practice, one that attempts to get at the underlying social determinants of disease; Helps readers understand the importance of power relations and their transformation in this practice; Introduces readers to a new `community capacity-building' approach to plan, implement and evaluate health promotion programmes. Health Promotion Practice is an invaluable resource to students and practitioners of health promotion who want to help empower the communities that they work with.

Public health continues to pose ideological, economic and moral dilemmas for policy makers. For example, how involved should health care practitioners become in ensuring the absence of illness or promoting wellbeing? To what extent should health be a matter of state, rather than individual, responsibility? In this new edition of a highly regarded text, Rob Baggott visits the contemporary debate surrounding public health, exploring the many facets of health improvement and promotion within their historical, socioeconomic and political contexts. Both timely and engaging, the book: ■ examines the successes and limitations of current health strategy and public health campaigns ■ assesses the impact of factors such as lifestyle, environment and socioeconomic inequality on public health ■ investigates international dimensions and global issues including environmental health, climate change and world poverty ■ evaluates the past 13 years of Labour policy and considers the future under a coalition government. Heavily revised to incorporate the latest British, European and international developments, Public Health explores the ever-changing political environment and policy processes that frame current approaches. Now providing detailed analysis of regional diversity within UK policy, this text is core reading for all those with interests in health, social and welfare policy, the development of the NHS and the voluntary sector and the essentials of contemporary public health.
