New book: Disease Prevention: A Critical Toolkit
By John Frank, Ruth Jepson, and Andrew J. Williams. Oxford University Press.
New preventive advice and interventions are being promoted on a daily basis, and Disease Prevention: A Critical Toolkit equips front line health workers with the skills needed to inform and serve their patients and communities. Disease Prevention: A Critical Toolkit provides a set of appraisal tools to guide those considering a preventive action, to make sure that it is effective (does more good than harm), efficient (is a competitive use of scarce resources), and equitable in its impact across society.
- Case studies and worked examples illustrate the risks and benefits of specific preventive interventions, including how to approach future controversies
- Includes end of chapter quizzes to aid understanding and learning
- Extensively referenced, to aid and guide further learning
