The value of this book is twofold in the context of a newly defined Framework. First, it brings to life these competencies in a very practical way with theoretical descriptions, case studies, guided activities designed to apply what the reader has learnt and a couple of references to more in-depth material. Second, it is context specific and designed for evidence development for Public Health at a local level in the UK.
This is an excellent book for health practitioners preparing UKPHR portfolios. Each chapter is mapped against the skills and career framework, and practitioner standards.
