Summary
"The Strategy of Preventive Medicine by Geoffrey Rose, first published in 1992, remains a key text for anyone involved in preventive medicine. Rose's work focused on a population-wide approach to the prevention of common medical and behavioural disorders, and has transformed our whole approach to strategies for improving health. Rose examined the inextricable relationship between ill health, or deviance, in individuals and populations they come from, asserting that the essential determinants of the health of society are to be found in its mass characteristics. He explored the options for prevention, considering them from various view points - theoretical and scientific, sociological and political, practical and ethical. The applications of his ideas are illustrated by a variety of examples ranging from heart disease to alcoholism and road accidents."--BOOK JACKET
