Community development, planning and partnerships have become important terms in health promotion but, up until now, debate around these concepts have been discussed more in planning science than in public health literature. Roar Amdam draws on theories and new empirical evidence from local, regional and international planning and public health in order to develop a new model for health promotion: empowerment planning. Much health promotion planning has focused on top-down approaches, and while efforts to be participative are made, it is often without having a clear understanding of how community empowerment can be accommodated within health promotion programs. Amdam’s innovative concept combines top-down and bottom-up approaches to enable people to take more responsibility for their own health and for individual and collective capacity building. Planning in Health Promotion Work is suitable for all students and researchers of health promotion and health planning and development, whilst the numerous applied examples make it an invaluable resource for policymakers and practitioners working in public health.

'This text will be extremely useful for students on a range of health-related courses as well as practitioners in the health field. The application of theory to practice is particularly well presented' - Ruth Cross, Senior Lecturer in Public Health and Health Promotion, Leeds Metropolitan University Why is communication important in health? How can good health and well-being be promoted to the public? How can these communication skills be improved? Effective health communication is a critical aspect of healthcare at both the individual and wider public level. Health practitioners are frequently involved in the design, planning, implementation and evaluation of programmes, campaigns or policies in their work. This engaging new textbook explores current research and practice in the field and examines the knowledge and skills needed by health practitioners to promote and improve the health of the population. The book opens the debate around communication and health and the design of programmes to promote health, and thus moves closer to achieving fundamental health promotion goals. The book: " bridges the gap between communication theory and the implementation of policy " contains practical advice for designing effective campaigns " covers key topics such as health promotion theories and models; communicating with the wider public; communication in traditional and non-traditional settings; the role of the mass media and information technologies evidence-based practice; and methods of evaluation. Communicating Health will be essential reading for students needing to understand the factors that contribute to effective communication in health. It provides a detailed and up-to-date overview, drawing upon material from several health-related disciplines including public health, health studies and nursing. It will also be invaluable for health care professionals involved in public health who wish to reflect upon and develop their practice.
