About this book

Introduction

This book on health promotion is ideal for nurses, midwives and health visitors but will also be used by others involved in health promotion. The book is organised into three sections: the first section presents the theory of health promotion including principles and models, factors influencing health as well as ill health and behavioural change. The second section examines the skills required by health promoters and the third explores health promotion in specific settings, such as schools, hospitals, community settings and the workplace. Discussion exercises and questions are used throughout to encourage application to local situations.
