Edition : 3 Rev ed
Overview In this new edition of "Community Health and Wellness", Anne McMurray advances the discussion of health as a product of interactions between people and their environments. The social, cultural and political determinants that affect individual and community health are explored from a multidisciplinary perspective that is relevant to students across the health professions. The established format and successful pedagogy of previous editions including chapter objectives, real-world case studies and critical thinking questions are retained, and the implications of globalisation continue to be examined against international benchmarks such as the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion. The Jakarta Declaration on Health Promotion into the 21st Century, and the Bangkok Charter for Health Promotion in a Globalised World are also included as contemporary health promotion guidelines for practice.The text moves from a primary focus on risk to enhancing capacity and promoting a widespread health literacy. Family as a central dynamic is emphasised with a greater developmental health focus on critical pathways across the lifespan. Gender and cultural inclusiveness provide an essential backdrop to evidence-based policy and the provision of equitable health care for all.
