Assessing Evidence to improve Population Health and Wellbeing
- Carmen Aceijas - University of East London (Stratford)
Coverage includes the theoretical definition of evidence and its use in public health, the role of critical appraisal methods and tools in evidence assessment and how Effectiveness, Efficiency and Quality inform evidence. The book is packed with case studies and activities to help link theory and practice and prompt personal reflection.
This book supports MPH students understand the importance of evidence in underpinning contemporary Public Health practice. The activities are useful.
A good book to support students studying evidence based practice at level 5
As with other texts in this series, it is a useful text, although UK based. I like the way it references elements of the different professional frameworks, which makes it very usable for the relevant students. The subject is directly taught in a parallel module to mine, which is why it is supplementary rather than recommended.
This book stimulates student interest in public health. It opens up topics that are a major concern to society. The book makes demands on students and questions their percieved knowledge.
This book is a very useful resource. The standard of the book, along with the informaiton provided within makes for compelling reading, with some useful activities, where the learners may reflect. The layout is not what I thought it would be, though this sets the book off nicely, and is easy to use/read.
I would advise that this be a supplemental resource for my learners rathern than essential.
