Book Description

The third edition of Public Health 101: Improving Community Health offers an overarching, population-level perspective on the factors that determine health and disease, as well as the resources that are available to protect and promote health. The third edition examines the full range of options for intervention, including the use of the healthcare system, the public health system, and society-wide systems such as laws and taxation. This new edition places a greater emphasis on community involvement and the provision of community-based services.
Readers will walk away from this article with a crystal clear comprehension of the ways in which public health influences their day-to-day lives thanks to an original collection of case studies, vignettes, and extended examples. They will acquire and use frameworks for thinking about public health concerns, and as a result, they will get a deeper understanding of the health news that they are exposed to on a daily basis.
Principal Attributes:

-A detailed look at newly created and expanded jobs for nurses, efforts to solve the nursing shortage, and additional case studies that stress the essential and evolving roles played by nurses in the health care and public health systems

-Coverage of topical stories, such as the present opioid crisis, as well as “One Health” issues, such as antibiotic resistance, climate change, and international health legislation

-Recent case studies on a variety of public health topics, including diabetes, the flu, antibiotic resistance, and the effects of aging on society as a whole

One of the three courses that make up the Health Foundations curriculum, Public Health 101 is a component of the Essential Public Health series. Both the ASPPH “Critical Component Elements” for a public health overview course and the AAC&U recommendations for a Public Health 101 course have been incorporated into the curriculum for the Public Health 101 course.
