Description

Widespread concern about the rising costs of medical technology has created a renewed interest in prevention technologies, manifested in the steadily increasing use of the four primary preventive tools: education, social competency enhancement, natural caregiving, and systems change. Each of the monographs in this series illustrates practical applications for two or more of these technologies which can be used to promote health and reduce the incidence of illness.
This series of monographs is dedicated to the increasingly vital area of prevention in healthcare. The works are organized into four categories of preventive practice: education, social competency enhancement, natural caregiving, and systems change.
