The concept of wellbeing is currently being explored globally, with policy
makers debating how to use and measure wellbeing beyond the traditional means
that focus upon material and economic indicators.
This book details the contemporary research evidence base for health and
wellbeing within the global context and discusses how this improved knowledge
can be applied to both healthcare policy and practice. It discusses and
analyses the many different but inter-facing arguments around wellbeing and its
relevance in the modern world.
Written by a multi-professional group of health and wellbeing academics who
have extensive national and international experience across the statutory and
non-statutory sectors, the book is essential reading for healthcare
professionals and policy makers looking for a comprehensive and up-to-date
summary of the latest research and practice in the field of wellbeing.
