Overview

Offering a timely and in-depth analysis of the past, present and future of health promotion, Health Promotion in Canada is the ideal resource for students interested in public health, health education, health policy, and nursing.

Now in its fourth edition, this text covers a broad range of key concepts and issues related to health promotion practice within cities, communities, education, and clinical care settings. Fifteen additional chapters have been developed on topics including gender transformative health promotion, wellbeing and mental health, digital media, and health promotion practices for immigrants. This new edition also features updated content on health promotion ethics, social theory, health inequities, global ecological change, intervention entry points, and the role of the reflexive practitioner.

Throughout the text, students will learn to build and implement effective promotion interventions by drawing on behavioural theories, health intervention research, and examples of participatory practice. They will also learn to recognize the impact of globalization on health promotion practice, the challenges faced by researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, and the possibilities for equitable health promotion.

Features

  • discusses promising health promotion practices in Indigenous communities
  • includes an afterword by Ronald Labonté
