Successful communication can help to prevent health problems, promote healthy behaviors and lifestyles, and overcome health challenges. However, various issues have created obstacles for the promotion of health communication, including low health literacy, the reluctance of patients to admit their lack of understanding, the overestimation by health professionals of a patient’s level of understanding, and insufficient health literacy tools, to name a few. It is thus essential to convey the latest communication models and practices being used to increase health literacy and provide adequate health information to society. Health Communication Models and Practices in Interpersonal and Media Contexts: Emerging Research and Opportunities explores and analyzes the fundamentals, models, and dimensions of health communication and offers practical solutions for better communications with direct outcomes in the optimization of citizens’ health literacy. The book also discusses and proposes more effective health communication models and practices as a tool for the construction of more solid and evident health outcomes. Covering topics such as cancer prevention, health professionals’ communication, and models of health communication, this text is essential for health professionals, communication professionals, professors, teachers, researchers, academicians, and students.

This handbook is designed to be a toolbox of quickly accessible clinical resources for the psychologist working in primary care settings. The Handbook will help codify the newly established role of the primary care psychologist by providing clinicians with background knowledge of the primary care system, orienting frameworks for practice, overviews of clinical conditions that are: (1) common in the primary care environment (e.g. diabetes, low back pain, sleep disorders); (2) likely to be referred to the primary care psychologist (e.g. depression, anxiety, eating disorders, grief); and, (3) treatable with well established psychological interventions (e.g. smoking, obesity, heart disease). This will be an invaluable resource to any mental health professional working as part of a health care team, as well as to researchers and students in a variety of settings.

Health social science has evolved rapidly since the late 1980s. This volume presents ten case studies that exemplify some of the best practice in health social science in developing countries. The studies address the critical question of how social/behavioural science approaches can make a difference to significant health issues such as AIDS, people's reliance on traditional healers, their use of both indigenous and modern medicine, STDs, smoking, heart disease, and pyschological stress.The first and last chapters provide an overview of the evolving role of health social science research and examine some of the most promising perspectives illustrated by the case studies. The editors also reflect on future challenges and innovations in health social science research. This book will be a valuable resource for policymakers, planners and foundations supporting international health development, as well as scholars and public health practitioners.
