Health Issues in Chinese Contexts Volume 2 is a collection of the health care professions' research studies and writings and a film scholar's analysis on health issues presented in movies in Hong Kong. This book demonstrates the wisdoms and innovations health promotion programs and work experiences by the health care providers from diverse health care settings. The selected significant health issues include the citizens' perception on food safety in Hong Kong. A variety of community-based health promotion and primary health care programs will be introduced such as bone health among middle-aged men, Bikesmart program for primary school students, good night's sleep program for elderly, healthy diet programs and the health promotion about the family harmony for new immigrant housewives. There are also two chapters on crisis management in health care settings like public transportation accidents and H5N1 in poultry workers. Regarding communication health topics, this book presents a proposal for communication skills workshop for nurses and a case study about the needs for pre-marriage communication. Some contributors reviewed the health issues and development in Hong Kong like nutritional status of the older people and the development of the Chinese medicine. Others contributors reported their clinical observations on a patient suffering from anorexia nervosa and her family members in the course of family treatment. Another contributor analysed the doctors' images in cinema and television in order to reflect the actual health care services from a mass media lens. This book starts by a fiction named Dr. Medicine Love which is a creative work aimed to revisit the values and professional missions of being a good doctor. The following is a brief highlight of the 17 chapters.
