Product Description: Australian Women's Health: Innovations in Social Science and Community Research contains a compilation of studies that investigates the status of women's physical and mental health in Australia. The studies in this book will help researchers and practitioners from any country benefit from the methodological approaches used to ask questions of policy, program, and epidemiological interests. From Australian Women's Health, you'll learn ways to discover the different needs of women depending on their age, race, and economic situation; if these needs are being met; and how politics affect women's health care issues. Australian Women's Health offers suggestions for further research and gives you insight into Australian health policies, the social aspects of women's health, and women's health care costs, in particular, for women in minority communities. Furthermore, this book investigates issues that affect women based on their occupation, cultural background, and roles in society. This information will help you understand the diverse needs and health care concerns of Australian women. The studies in Australian Women's Health identify current problems and offer future suggestions on how to improve women's health care, including:
  • evaluating the positive and negative aspects of women's health centers (WHC's) in order to offer or improve important services to women and maintain government funding
  • conducting a follow-up survey in conjunction with the Women's Health Australia (WHA) study to learn more about health service utilization, eating disorders, violence, social support and health care for widowers, and services available for treating emotional distress
  • increasing communication between generations to teach younger women about sexually transmitted diseases, early pregnancy, cervical cancer, and available health services
  • treating the emotional and physical medical needs unique to refugee women and how treatment can be improved
  • examining the special concerns and health care issues of women in caravan parks, or trailer parks, such as drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, contraceptive practices, and chronic illnesses
  • addressing how women perceive stress to be a causal factor of heart disease and angina, high blood pressure, ulcers, asthma, and muscular pain
  • contributing factors to mental illness, such as domestic violence and sexual abuse
  • teaching medical students about domestic violence and how to detect abuse in their patients'lives

    Australian Women's Health offers you proven reasons why special attention to women's health needs are important by examining women's own theories about health and its determinants. You will receive information, suggestions, and first-hand accounts from women as to their needs and concerns that will help you shape the future direction of women's health care.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.

We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?

If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
