Case Studies in Community Health

Jo Fairbanks,

Case Studies in Community Health
 
 

Case Studies in Community Health presents 14 classroom-tested case study scenarios, including background information and discussion questions. Written for students in public health and community health courses, these cases help integrate the basic concepts of public health into an applied setting. The case studies provide an opportunity for students to apply those basic concepts to a "real-life" situation. The overall purpose of the book is to help students understand that public health practice occurs in a social context and therefore is subject to all the complexities of a social environment. The cases explore a broad range of topics in three critical areas of public health: epidemiology, health administration, and health program planning.

This text will be of interest students and professionals in family studies, family therapy, gerontology, health communication, medical sociology, nursing, nursing administration, nursing health, nursing research and theory, patient care, public administration, public health, quantitative research and methods, school counseling, social work, and sociology.
