This comprehensive introduction to the study and practice of health and adult education provides the missing link for those seeking to better integrate their efforts in these two areas. Bringing together a distinguished interdisciplinary group of scholars and practitioners, the book speaks clearly to how teaching and learning insights can be used to improve health in clinical, higher education, and community settings.
Along with a broad overview of concepts and strategies in the field, Adult Education and Health includes illustrative practical examples from a variety of contexts and a helpful glossary of key terms. It will be a useful resource for professionals and academics in many areas, including community health education, health policy, First Nations health, and the education of health professionals.
