Summary
"What can you contribute to improving and protecting the health of your community? Public health is becoming an increasingly central area of healthcare practice and people working in public health come from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds. This practical and accessible book maps out the range of exciting and varied options open to people considering a career in public health, and provides helpful information on how to get there, either as a fully fledged specialist or in an operational practitioner role. Designed especially for those wanting to learn about public heath, it looks at public health work in a range of settings, from health services to the commercial sector, and in a range of different roles, from health protection to public health intelligence. Numerous vignettes and case studies from highly experienced practitioners, as well as those new to their roles, illustrate what their roles involve and how have they had an impact. This is the ideal book for anyone interested in putting public health at the centre of their working lives"--Provided by publisher
