Publishers Description: Understanding Health: A Determinants Approach introduces students to the variety of approaches to old and new public health, by placing them in the broader context of conditions and structures in society. The book begins with an exploration of the concept of 'determinants and health' as a basis for understanding the relationship between inequality and social disadvantage. Highlighting the principles and strategies of health promotion, the book analyses the impact of these determinants of health on individuals, communities and populations. Practical in its approach, this introductory text features a wide range of examples and case studies. The experimental nature of the text draws students towards a fuller understanding of all the issues confronting public health today. Understanding Health: A Determinants Approach is an essential textbook for all first year students in the health sciences. In particular, it is a vital resource for students of nursing, public health, psychology, disability studies, welfare and community studies, occupational therapy and human movement.
