Global Handbook of Health Promotion Research, Vol. 3: Doing Health Promotion Research (Global Handbook of Health Promotion Research, 3) (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Didier Jourdan, Louise Potvin
While research teams are producing relevant and valid knowledge for health promotion, there is not yet a structured manual and distinct field of health promotion research. This timely “state-of-the-art” handbook contributes to structuring the field of health promotion research.
This collection presents introductory-level methodological solutions to the major epistemological, methodological, and ethical challenges facing health promotion research. It brings together experts from different “research traditions” that coexist in the field. The handbook covers the existing knowledge production and sharing practices to delineate the “discipline” and its agenda for future research. Ultimately, it contributes to creating a global community of health promotion researchers.
This volume concerns research practices relevant to the production and sharing of knowledge about health promotion practices. It is organized as follows:
- Part I presents some paradigms and approaches to knowledge production relevant to health promotion research.
- Parts II to V describe research designs and methods that specifically address health promotion research.
- Part VI includes an overview of the challenges facing health promotion research and suggests ways forward.
Global Handbook of Health Promotion Research, Vol. 3: Doing Health Promotion Research is a highly relevant reference tool for researchers and graduate students in health promotion, public health, education, and socio-health sciences; practitioners in health, medical, and social sectors; policy-makers; and health research administrators.
