New Book: Evidence-based Health Promotion

Posted by on August 13, 2007

Evidence-based Health Promotion

Interest in, and commitment to, an evidence-based approach to clinical and medical practice has grown over the last few years. This has fueled 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

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.
