"A timely investigation of key factors that impact on well-being. Sets out the national and international policy context clearly and makes very good use of case studies and wider evidence to consider effectiveness of interventions. Thinking points and practical exercises encourage the student to apply knowledge to practice throughout."
Paul Reid, Senior Lecturer, School of Health, University of Central Lancashire, UK
"This book provides a comprehensive perspective on well-being within the context of health and health improvement both within this country and internationally.
I would recommend this book as a key text for all students studying on the nursing, midwifery, social work and allied health profession courses.
The chapters are structured well and provide a means for students to explore key concepts. The use of case studies helps the reader to appreciate the practical application of theoretical concepts and as such it brings alive the real issues within the practice setting.
The structure and content is suitable for a wide range of academic levels and professional groups, making it a key text for health and social care professions."
Patricia Livsey, Executive Dean, Faculty of Health and Human Sciences, Plymouth University, UK
"This book would make an ideal resource for anyone working/managing in public health arenas"
