Product Description

Review

'The authors' idea of expert models of risk … is a very useful one, both for practitioners and academics doing work in this area. In fact, the chapters outlining these models made a very important and unique contribution in the field of risk communication and for that reason alone the book should be on the reading list of everyone doing research in that area.' International Journal of Public Opinion Research

Book Description

This book explains how to develop more effective risk communications using the Carnegie Mellon mental-model approach. Such communications are designed to contain, in readily usable form, the information that people need to make informed decisions about risks to health, safety, and the environment.

Practical and well grounded in the literature -- a must own 2 July 2004
By Hilda Maibach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a "must own" for anyone who is interested in conveying risk information to members of the public. It lays out a cohert framework -- and more or less step-by-step instructions -- for identifying what information will be of greatest value to members of a target audience. It is the most useful book I have found thus far to guide my efforts to communicate complex health information to members of various publics.
