'An excellent introduction to the theory and practice of health promotion in a developed country such as Australia' From the foreword by Professor Brian Oldenburg This widely used text offers a comprehensive overview of the field of health promotion. Drawing on current Australian and international research, the authors provide a detailed review of health promotion principles. They demonstrate how these principles fit into the broader public health context, and how they can be integrated into practice in a range of settings, including the workplace, schools, rural communities, Indigenous communities and health care organisations. The authors also include a step-by-step guide to program management from planning to evaluation. This third edition includes new material on the use of evidence in health promotion practice, and on the increasing importance of an ecological perspective. The text has been fully revised with new data and case studies, and planning models have been updated to reflect current practice. Health Promotion is an essential text for students and a valuable resource for health professionals.
