Updated and thoroughly revised, the second edition of this foundational text continues to cover all major topics of organization, financing, workforce, goals, initiatives, accountability, and metrics from the perspectives of academicians and officials in public health. This second edition is the only public health text to encompass the new legislation implemented by the Affordable Care Act, with its focus on prevention and increase in funding for prevention research. It also examines resulting job opportunities and expanded interest in the public health field.Comprehensive and accessible, the text discusses a variety of new trends in public health, particularly regarding primary care and public health partnerships. The second edition also includes information about new accountability initiatives and workforce requirements to contribute to ""public health services and systems research,"" better known as health services research and clinical outcomes research in medical care. The text stresses the increasing emphasis on efficiency, effectiveness, and equity in achieving population health improvements, and goes beyond merely presenting information to analyze the question of whether the practice of public health achieves its promise.
