  • Description
  • Details

The shortage of adequately prepared health professionals is the most significant threat to world health that we face. This book, a co-publication with The Carter Center, focuses on the training of health professional educators--both teachers and practitioners--in low--resource countries at different levels of technological and material sophistication.

This comprehensive book trains health educators and practitioners to improve their pedagogical skills and to increase the quality and numbers of health workers. It also assists physcians, nurses, health officers, medical lab technicians, and environmental technicians to work with different cultures and linguistic groups in any one country. For the growing number of health educators and practitioners in developed countries who teach, research, and practice within the international context, it is an essential resource.
