Format: Paperback, 588 pages, 5th Revised edition Edition
Published In: Australia, 14 October 2014
Community Health and Wellness 5th edition represents contemporary thinking and research in community health and wellness from Australia, New Zealand and the global community. It challenges students and health professionals to become more acutely aware of the primary health care (PHC) environments in which they work in order to gain an understanding of what is socially determining the health of the individuals, families and communities within their care. With an increased focus on community assessment and working with groups, the text introduces the SDH Assessment Circle-a new model for community assessment as a tool for working with communities to promote health and wellbeing. An engaging new case study running through all chapters provides an opportunity for students to relate context to practice and encourages discussion of the social determinants of health (SDH). The Mason family in Australia and the Smiths in New Zealand, both fly-in fly-out (FIFO) families, feature in each chapter to highlight a range of PHC issues and the SDH influencing their home lives, their respective communities and the challenges they face.
