From the Author
With current International and UK government policy on health and social care reflecting a much greater public health focus, the time is ripe for midwives to fully capitalise on their professional skills allowing them to make a real contribution to the improvement of the publics health.
This text takes the reader through the key concepts of community and public health and provides guidance on identifying health needs within a community setting. While drawing on a range of literature and research, the focus is clearly on the midwives role and provides a sound knowledge base from which practitioners can develop and improve their practice and contribution to public health care provision.
