The New Public Health

 
9780124157668: The New Public Health

The New Public Health has established itself as a solid textbook throughout the world. Translated into seven languages, this work distinguishes itself from other public health textbooks, which are either highly locally oriented or, if international, lack the specificity of local issues relevant to students' understanding of applied public health in their own setting. This third edition features 40% new material, and is updated based on the 2005 accreditation criteria of the Council for Education in Public Health (CEPH). Contemporary topics include the impact of the global economic crisis on public health, advances in infectious and chronic epidemiology (including pandemics and superbugs), food safety, environmental issues, and more. The book provides a unified approach to public health appropriate for all masters' level students and practitioners-specifically for courses in MPH programs, community health and preventive medicine programs, community health education programs, community health nursing programs, as well as programs for other medical professionals such as pharmacists and physiotherapists. * Features 40% new material, including all new tables, figures, data, and chapter bibliographies* Presents multiple case studies, chapter-ending bibliographies, and "recommended readings"* Includes detailed companion website featuring and instructors' guide, PowerPoint slides, case studies and much more

Review:

"The need for a robust public health response to the challenges facing society is greater now than it has been for many decades. The global financial crisis has been seized upon by those who see an opportunity to challenge the responsibility of the state for its citizens, and above all those who are most vulnerable. In the tradition of Rudolph Virchow, the public health community must speak out, marshalling the evidence, formulating policies, and showing that there is an alternative. In this third, substantially revised, edition of what is now established as one of the leading textbooks on the theory and practice of public health, Tulchinsky and Varavikova draw on a wealth of examples from all parts of the world to instruct, invigorate, and inspire us." - --Martin McKee CBE, Professor of European Public Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London , United Kingdom

Book Description Academic Press, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Too often, public health practitioners forget that it is not enough to describe the world. The goal is to change it. In the first edition of The New Public Health, Tulchinsky and Varavikova inspired readers in many countries with a vision for a better world and gave them the tools to make it happen. Their second, substantially revised edition once again draws on a wide range of disciplinary perspectives and, unusually for a public health textbook, provides examples from all parts of the world. In it, they succeed to an even greater extent in creating a book that is both inspirational and practically useful. This should be essential reading for all those seeking to improve the health of populations, whether in their village, city, country, or planet." -- Martin McKee CBE, Professor of European Public Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine "In an era of electronic communication where we search for and read everything online, it is a pleasant surprise to discover a textbook that is not an anachronism, but well suited to the present. This book is an antidote to information overload. The authors'' selection of topics and material will provide great value added for users-students, scholars, and practitioners. Public health, not a limited or constrained discipline, comprises a set of problems and the sciences needed to solve them. Here the reader can find the concepts, plus research and results to approach virtually any public health question. Readers can quickly acquire a sound understanding of ideas as diverse as professionalism, consumerism, and social medicine. Capturing public health in fewer than a thousand pages might suggest that no further information is needed or useful. Surely not. Instead Tulchinsky and Varavikova have offered a far more important service by explaining to public health readers how to look outward into other disciplines in the physical, biological, social, and management sciences to help solve public health problems." -- Anthony Robbins, MD, MPA, Professor of Public Health, Tufts University School of Medicine and Co-Editor, Journal of Public Health Policy "The first edition of New Public Health was extremely popular among our international MPH course at Hebrew University, Jerusalem in 2001 as it was probably the best written introduction to the specialty, which exposed the newcomers to a comprehensive range of public health topics and presented complex public health concepts in a very friendly way. Upon graduation and return to Moscow I discovered that the same book and its Russian version were widely used as a standard textbook in various medical schools. We also found it very useful for our training programs as a valuable source of structured information for phisicians and decision makers from HIV/AIDS and other fields. Therefore, based on my personal experience I would highly recommend New Public Health for all those who start learning public health as well as for busy practitioners looking for a good reference book." -- Alexei Bobrick, Hebrew University-Hadassah, Jerusalem, Israel "The new edition of The New Public Health has been updated to encompass many new issues that continue to dramatically shape and expand the influence of public health. The authors revised several chapters on measuring and evaluating the health of a population, economics of health, law and ethics, and globalization of health. A number of sections were added or broadened such as those devoted to quantitative research methods, sampling, confounders, the null hypothesis, elasticities of demand, emerging infectious disease threats, etc. This book is a completely up-to-date, all-in-one public health guide. The text draws from many disciplines (medicine, sociology, epidemiology, demography, economics, law, and history), and uses examples and case studies from different fields of public health. It is also an outstanding guide to additional reso. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0124157661
