Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book provides a comprehensive review of the basic principles of general health promotion and also explores issues within the wider public health role of the midwife ... The chapters are all laid out in a similar format which leads the reader into and through each topic in a logical progression ... This text, like the previous edition, will be an invaluable resource for midwives and students alike. It is also appropriate for other health professionals; particularly those working with women, public health nurses and sexual health workers."
