This introductory text examines the public health practice of a range of professionals and includes case studies that span a variety of public health disciplines. Key issues covered include the exploration of inter-professional collaboration, the implementation of current policies, and the ways in which public health professionals address the root causes of ill health in areas such as poverty, housing, pollution, unemployment and social exclusion.

Industry Reviews

'It is both timely and long overdue to have issues relating to housing and homelessness, environmental health and occupational health all within the same cover. It is refreshing to have multiple perspectives of public health explored in a book of this size. The content is well planned and organised, making the reading journey pleasurable. I would recommend this book for all students in public health practice.' - Gill Watson, Nursing Standard 'Firstly, it is delightfully multi-disciplinary in nature...Secondly, it is right 'up-to-the-minute' with full mention of the latest NHS reorganisation and the place of primary care trusts within this. Thirdly, although written very much from a British public health perspective - with a healthy contribution pointing out the growing divergence of public health in Scotland - it remains cognisant of wider public health developments in Europe and more globally.' - David Jeffs, Director, Public Health and Strategy, Guernsey, The Journal of the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health
