`[T]he text would be excellent reading for students, those working with students, and newly qualified healthcare professionals in all disciplines... It provides a strong message to healthcare professionals to keep their view of healthcare broad, patient-centred, and encompassing other professions' - Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics

No single area of study, or any individual, can claim to have the answers to even the basic questions which surround human health. Trying to understand the nature of health requires insights from many different perspectives. Working for Health is a unique reader which draws together contributions from many of the disciplines which have traditionally laid claims to knowledge about health and combines them with more personal accounts.

Contributions to Working for Health have been carefully selected to reflect the diversity and pluralism in understanding `health' and in delivering health care, making this an ideal text for students and practitioners in many fields including, health studies, nursing, social work, allied health professions and the voluntary sector. It is also a set book for The Open University course K203 Working for Health.
