"This volume offers substantial help to those interested in the community approach to health promotion. It reflects the considerable knowledge gained in the past 10 years. It outlines principles and practical advice concerning important aspects of organizing for community wide health promotion. This new edition makes a valuable contribution to the field."

We have only just introduced community care planning sessions, the volume is a very in depth and interesting read for those that have an interest in population health and health promotion. I am not sure if at the moment this may to out of the scope for what we are trying to achieve with the module at this moment in time. I am hoping to develop the community input further so will be hoping to introduce this in to the next run of the module

The first two chapters dealing with health promotion and social change theory are clear and the illustration given help support the discussions well
