Abstract

With increasing numbers training and practicing public health across a range of organisations, and policy continuing to drive the public health agenda forward, the need for expertise is greater than ever. 'Professional Practice in Public Health' will provide students and practitioners with a comprehensive and contemporary overview of public health. It is written by respected academics and practitioners drawing from their wide range of experiences in environmental and public health. The book emphasises the importance of reflective practice in developing and administering increasingly relevant policy and strategy.

Each chapter takes account of the framework of competencies required by the UK Public Health Voluntary Register and aims to help students and practitioners work toward these requirements. The book’s main market will be Masters students but the accessible style means that undergraduate students, students on Foundation Degree courses and practitioners will also find this book a useful learning resource.

This book provides an interactive approach that includes case studies, activities and reflection points so that readers are encouraged to engage with the theory, practice, knowledge and skills. Overall the book seeks to help raise the professional stakes in delivering effective public health interventions to tackle health inequalities where they are at their most acute.
