Summary

The Psychology of Health and Health Care: A Canadian Perspective, 3Ce is a valuable resource for Canadian students, instructors and practitioners of psychology, nursing, medicine, public health and epidemiology. This all-Canadian text introduces the field of health psychology and explains how psychological concepts can be applied to health care delivery in Canada. A new chapter on the Systems of the Body brings a more biological focus to the text, while real-life examples bring immediacy and increased understanding to students. The chapter on health and the internet has been condensed to become a focused module, suitable for class discussion and assignments. The text is refreshed with a new more pleasing two-colour format, and brought up-to-date with updated research and literature with a focus on the Canadian perspective in healthcare. With new information on the privatization of health care, self-accountability, and an expanded section on the feminization of medicine, this text is more current and focused than ever before on the state of healthcare in Canada.
