An instant access point for the study of health...

The Health Studies Companion explains terminology, theories and underpinning concepts of health. It is ideal preparatory and introductory reading, and provides a reliable point of reference throughout your programme of study.

This book will help you understand the competing and contested debates in contemporary health and social care. Highlights include easily searchable A-Z lists of explanations, reflective activities, stacks of further reading suggestions and an extensive research methods section. Plus with a detailed cross-referencing system, it allows you to make immediate connections between the various elements of knowledge and research.

■ Suitable for all health students: accessible and appropriate for all, whether applying, just starting or looking for support throughout your course.

■ Clear but detailed explanations: alphabetically explains and discusses key concepts, theories and ideologies, and draws links between them, offering you a foundation for all areas of study.

■ Evidence-based discussion: looks at four prominent health issues and uses research from these areas to aid understanding and enhance criticality.
■ Introduces research methods: understanding and critically analysing research is a vital skill for all students.

■ Offers careers guidance: in a section written specially by a careers consultant, find advice on job opportunities, professions and interview skills.

This book is the launch pad to your degree success.
