Practising Public Health: A Guide to Examinations and Workplace Application helps public health professionals in the UK and elsewhere to optimise their everyday public health practice. The book incorporates theory, skills, tips, and examples that illustrate communication skills, listening skills, information assimilation, and how to make appropriate public health judgements in given situations. It also provides comprehensive support for those taking the UK Membership of the Faculty of Public Health (MFPH) Objective Structured Public Health Examination (OSPHE).
The book includes eight videos of genuine MFPH OSPHE scenarios that provide examples of what good (and not so good) performances look like. Viewers then score the candidates before reading the marks and feedback provided by experienced OSPHE examiners. A helpful ‘Assessments’ section includes further ‘Do’s and Don’ts’ from previously successful OSPHE candidates. As well as assisting candidates preparing for professional exams, these exercises will help improve the necessary skill set required by all public health professionals.
Each chapter is broken down into an introduction, an overview of relevant theory, and detail on how to apply the theory illustrated with real-world examples. A ‘Further Reading’ section at the end of each chapter links to useful additional information and the book’s glossary provides examples of how to communicate technical terms in lay language.
