Overview

Mindful of the varying needs of students, practitioners, and policy makers, the author highlights key take-home messages for each and provides practical methods, and their theoretical basis, for applying evidence to the field of public health. Some of the methods are well established; others are newly developed by the author and colleagues. The book is aimed at all health students and practitioners, at whatever level, so that the reader will be able to apply these methods to their thinking, research, and practice.
