Measurement in health promotion and protection
AbstractA rich sourcebook of concepts, epidemiological tools, and practical examples illustrating ways to measure changes in health status and then relate these changes to specific policies and interventions. Emphasis is placed on concepts and approaches that are in line with the shift towards preventive medicine and the corresponding appreciation for the importance of such factors as behaviour, life-style, and environmental conditions. Within this conceptual framework, the book presents a large number and range of quantitative methods that can serve as reliable tools for identifying problems, setting targets, and assessing progress. Contributions from more than 70 experts in the fields of epidemiology, statistics, behavioural research, and social and preventive medicine are included.
