Salford academic has work on health leadership published

An academic at the University of Salford has contributed a chapter to the recently published third edition of Community Public Health in Policy and Practice.

Dr Karen Stansfield

The chapter, titled ‘Leadership development for public health practice’, has been written by Dr Karen Stansfield (pictured), Associate Dean (Enterprise and Engagement) for the School of Health and Society at the university.

Designed for public health nurses and health visitors at every stage of their career from students to experienced practitioners, Community Public Health in Policy and Practice: A Source Book provides an overview of theoretical constructs and principles for community public health practice, including underpinning research. The book is written by leading experts and is designed to support innovation and practice development including dealing with major policy changes and changes to theory and the evidence base. 

Karen said: “Leadership in health has never been so important; as the coronavirus pandemic continues to unfold, we have all seen the vital role that public health has to play. At the University of Salford we are focussed on developing the next generation of health leaders, as well as providing development opportunities to experienced professionals through our industry partnerships. It’s fantastic to be able to share our expertise more widely through this new publication.”
