The Potential for Health Reviews


...will attract a wide audience within Britain...relevant to all levels of student nurses. * Health Education Journal *
Public health doctors... always waiting for guidance...This collection of essays is what they might be waiting for. * Health Matters *
Because Kenneth Calman was England's chief medical officer, he has a unique experience of topics related to the practice of public health. These are the best part of the book. Particularly interesting are his ideas on communicating health related risks to the public and the chapter on the health of the nation strategy ("from health for all to health by all"). I also like his suggestion that a major aspect of medicine is to constantly redefine disease and health. He is convincing when he promotes the importance of medical humanities. * BMJ Bookshop, Fred Paccaud *
