Description:
Health, Illness and Wellbeing provides an introduction to some of the important ideas that underlie the field of public health, showing students the forces and trends that combine to shape the health of individuals, communities, and populations. It provides the basis for a career in any of the health sciences where insight into the meaning of health will allow for the development of effective practice and greater sensitivity to the needs of the community. This book introduces a range of topics related to health and well-being in the context of a conceptual framework of determinants of health. The first part of the book focuses on perspectives of health and well-being and highlights the way in which people think about how health is informed by biological, environmental, and social factors that affect whole populations. The second part of the book centres on social, cultural and economic determinants of health specifically to show the ways in which the experience of health is coloured by the characteristics of the society in which people live.
Each chapter is free standing, but all are linked through the framework of determinants that gives the reader an understanding of the causes of health, rather than just the effects of health status in society.
