Whilst studying for my nursing degree, this book has provided me with a wealth of knowledge. In particular, around the different socio-economic impacts and determinants of health in relation to patient wellbeing. This information has proved vital in helping me structure my field-specific nursing assignments relating to public health, as well as also providing me with a plan of how to structure any research-based assignments/arguments.
What a fabulous publication! Very comprehensive and informative. The authors efficiently combined the most recent findings with a historical perspective highlighting the healthcare system's changeable nature, its origins and consequences for all stakeholders. Each chapter, written by an expert in a field, covers important for nurses and healthcare delivery issues ending with extending the topic reading list relevant for furthering the knowledge.
