Description : This fifth edition of the ever-popular Oxford Textbook of Public Health Practice has been thoroughly updated, and remains the ultimate resource on the subject of public health and epidemiology. Two new editors, Mary Ann Lansang and Martin Gulliford, join the established editor team of Roger Detels and Robert Beaglehole, representing a truly global outlook from four continents. The contributors are drawn from across the world, offering perspectives from vastly different health systems, with ranging public health needs and priorities. With contributors including Dr. Margaret Chan, Director of the World Health Organization, this book offers a globally comprehensive picture of modern health. The book retains its approach of dividing the complex, dynamic subject of public health into three topics. First, the scope of public health is covered, looking at the development of the discipline, determinants of health and disease, public health policies, and laws and ethics. The second volume focuses on the methods of public health, including the main science behind the discipline--epidemiology. Finally, the third volume puts the theory into practice, examining specific public health problems and options for prevention and control. As well as identifying these issues by system or disease, there is also an awareness of the unique needs of particular population groups. The book concludes with an analysis of the functions of public health, and a look at the future of public health in the 21st century. The picture of world health has moved on dramatically since the publication of the fourth edition in 2002. This new edition includes substantial new material on the impact of private support of public health; globalization; water and sanitation; leadership; community-intervention trials; disease and infection; gene environment interactions; obesity and physical inactivity; urbanization; minorities and indigenous populations; health needs assessment; clinical epidemiology, and the practice of public health. This ensures that the Oxford Handbook of Public Health Practice remains the most comprehensive, accessible text for both students and practitioners in public health and epidemiology.

Description : Human beings have always been affected by their surroundings. There are various health benefits linked to being able to access to nature; including increased physical activity, stress recovery, and the stimulation of child cognitive development. The Oxford Textbook of Nature and Public Health provides a broad and inclusive picture of the relationship between our own health and the natural environment. All aspects of this unique relationship are covered, ranging from disease prevention through physical activity in green spaces to innovative ecosystem services, such as climate change adaptation by urban trees. Potential hazardous consequences are also discussed including natural disasters, vector-borne pathogens, and allergies. This book analyses the complexity of our human interaction with nature and includes sections for example epigenetics, stress physiology, and impact assessments. These topics are all interconnected and fundamental for reaching a full understanding of the role of nature in public health and wellbeing. Much of the recent literature on environmental health has primarily described potential threats from our natural surroundings. The Oxford Textbook of Nature and Public Health instead focuses on how nature can positively impact our health and wellbeing, and how much we risk losing by destroying it. The all-inclusive approach provides a comprehensive and complete coverage of the role of nature in public health, making this textbook invaluable reading for health professionals, students, and researchers within public health, environmental health, and complementary medicine.

Description : Prevention of mental illness and mental health promotion have often been ignored in the past, both in undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. Recently, however, there has been a clear shift towards public mental health, as a result of increasing scientific evidence that both these actions have a serious potential to reduce the onset of illness and subsequent burden as a result of mental illness and related social, economic and political costs. A clear distinction between prevention of mental illness and mental health promotion is critical. Selective prevention, both at societal and individual level, is an important way forward. The Oxford Textbook of Public Mental Health brings together the increasing interest in public mental health and the growing emphasis on the prevention of mental ill health and promotion of well-being into a single comprehensive textbook. Comprising international experiences of mental health promotion and mental well-being, chapters are supplemented with practical examples and illustrations to provide the most relevant information succinctly. This book will serve as an essential resource for mental and public health professionals, as well as for commissioners of services, nurses and community health visitors.

Description : Maternal and child morbidity and mortality affect women and children all over the world. In low resource settings, it is often the result of an illness which under other circumstances would be preventable and treatable. The disease burden predominately occurs in developing countries, but thedangers facing women and children are global issues. To improve conditions for women and children everywhere, we must address maternal and child health in their own right, and ask how they affect each other. The Oxford Textbook of Global Health of Women, Newborns, Children, and Adolescents is a comprehensive study of the cycle of life. The development of children is traced from pre-natal through to newborns, childhood, and adolescence. Posing child health against maltreatment, injury, and malnutrition,this book asks uncomfortable but necessary questions, and discusses how to influence policy and inspire change. Following women from adolescence to motherhood, it discusses sexual and reproductive health, HIV, injury, pregnancy, mental health, and much more. With examples from high- and low-resource settings presented by experts in the field, the Oxford Textbook of Global Health of Women, Newborns, Children, and Adolescents is a unique resource for medical practitioners everywhere. Divided into eight sections, it takes a life course approach to femalehealth. With a clear structure, helpful illustrations, and study questions at the end of each chapter, it is an easy to use manual for healthcare workers treating patients in the clinic and out in the field.Through its descriptions of the main challenges and explanations of the key theories in the field, this is the ideal textbook for medical students in paediatrics, obstetrics, nursing, midwifery, and other related areas. Looking to the future, it is also an invaluable starting point for policymakersand anyone with a general interest in the subject area.

Description : The relationship between spirituality and healthcare is historical, intellectual and practical, and it has now emerged as a significant field in health research, healthcare policy and clinical practice and training. Understanding health and wellbeing requires addressing spiritual and existential issues, and healthcare is therefore challenged to respond to the ways spirituality is experienced and expressed in illness, suffering, healing and loss. If healthcare has compassionate regard for the humanity of those it serves, it is faced with questions about how it understands and interprets spirituality, what resources it should make available and how these are organised, and the ways in which spirituality shapes and informs the purpose and practice of healthcare? These questions are the basis for this resource, which presents a coherent field of enquiry, discussion and debate that is interdisciplinary, international and vibrant. There is a growing corpus of articles in medical and healthcare journals on spirituality in addition to a wide range of literature, but there has been no attempt so far to publish a standard text on this subject. Spirituality in Healthcare is an authoritative reference on the subject providing unequalled coverage, critical depth and an integrated source of key topics. Divided into six sections including practice, research, policy and training, the project brings together international contributions from scholars in the field to provide a unique and stimulating resource.

It is written by experienced, internationally known practitioners of public health.
