Description:

Students pursuing a career in public health will be met with diverse and dynamic challenges. From the impact of a cholera outbreak after a natural disaster to promoting healthier lifestyles, protecting our communities will require our vigilance and creativity in finding new and better ways to address these complex problems. Led by series editor, Dr. Carleen Stoskopf, the PUBLIC HEALTH BASICS series introduces undergraduate students to contemporary public health issues ranging from epidemiology, management, data analysis, and health promotion. Through this book series, students will grapple with the major public health issues we are facing locally and globally, while learning and putting into practice the principles of public health.INTRODUCTION TO PUBLIC HEALTH ORGANIATIONS, MANAEMENT, AND POLICY, the second offering in this new series, provides a detailed introduction to public health organizations and their management. Initial chapters are devoted to exploring foundational concepts, practical applications, and new directions in each domain. Subsequent chapters focus on public health organizations at all levels, from large federal organizations and research centers, to county and local public health agencies. In addition to providing a critical understanding of individual, group, and organization behavior, the author outlines effective approaches to facilitate and manage inevitable organizational change in a productive, sustainable way by applying knowledge of power, influence, motivation, and leadership. This text provides your students with the knowledge and skills neccessary for a successful career in public health.
