Mary Larkin's book will be essential reading for students on the many courses that need an understanding of health and well-being across all age groups. It will also be an invaluable resource for those in the health and social care sector as well as practitioners working in the field.
Thanks, I adopted this text for 2022 delivery, however, it is a bit dated now. Thanks again.
Brilliant book. Essential for the module.
Mary Larkin, emphasizes the importance of public health within todays contemporary society. Given the advancement of health care, the book explores public health and well-being from a life course perspective; acknowledging that the human race is living longer with chronic conditions and thus, acknowledges the importance of recognizing that individuals despite their age can benefit from effective health promotion and brief interventions. This is an excellent book, and has proved to be a great resource for me as an academic, in delivering public health lectures within pre-registration nurse education.
