This is a practical public health book - written by public health practitioners for public health practitioners. It introduces learning practitioners to the early phases of approaching a public health issue, details why an issue is important and exactly how it can be analysed and addressed. It deals not only with the technical issues, but crucially with how those technical issues can be implemented in order to improve the health of the population directly, or via one of many important causal pathways (quality of health care design and delivery). It is written by experienced, internationally known practitioners of public health.

Review:

The book contains a wealth of knowledge and practical advice directly or indirectly applicable to occupational health practice ... The book is easily read and well structured ... it is a user-friendly practical guide aimed at developing the skils and guiding the practice of public health professionals. To the occupational health audience, it forms a unique and immensely useful resource, especially for those practising at a strategic level. (Occupational Medicine)

Any specialist in training is faced witht he ominous question-how do I do this? For the fully fledged practitioners it is often some time since they had to exercise certain skills, and faced with a new challenge need a reminder of how to approach it. To have an answer to this delivered by an eminent cast of experienced public health luminaries would be ideal, and it is this that this book delivers. (John Lucy, Public Health)

Excellent chapters, clearly explained...informative, useful and practical...An essential book for anyone in public health or with a public health interest...continues to succinctly give the tools to be an effective public health practitioner to survive and succeed in these times...this book is the equivalent of the 'Public Health' Bible. (BMA Medical Book Competition)
