Book Description

Now more than ever health care professionals play an increased role in the promotion of health to populations. Unique and innovative, Interprofessional Perspectives for Community Practice: Promoting Health, Well-being and Quality of Life weaves everyday care into prevention, community, and population health, creating a new and more expansive vision of health for all without compromising traditional practices.
Authors and editors Drs. Pizzi and Amir discuss and illustrate a client-centered preventive and health, well-being and quality of life approach rooted in best practice principles from interprofessional literature and firsthand experience. The text illustrates how allied health professionals implement those principles in their everyday and traditional practices with an emphasis on exploring health and well-being issues. Interprofessional Perspectives for Community Practice provides detailed guidance in program development and implementation.
