??A comprehensive, new view of the Western healthcare model--describes a new culture in which human health is conceived as a dynamic balance with one??'s environment??Essential and refreshing reading for students and health practitioners alike??Written in an accessible and engaging styleThe vast proportion of cash spent on healthcare by governments and individuals in the world is spent on systems of healthcare based more-or-less on the Western acute care model. The imbalance of these systems, with their overemphasis on cure, as opposed to care and prevention or maintenance of health, is well documented. Salutogenic healthcare takes a holistic view of the individual as part of a social and environmental continuum rather than as an isolated collection of symptoms; it also seeks to reassess the very meaning of health. There are some indications that we--as a global culture--are moving towards this new salutogenic model, but the speed of the movement has to be accelerated. This book sets out to chart the main steps of this movement and to indicate some of the ways of thinking and action that can help form new ways of approaching healthcare.

New philosophies of environmental management are being put to the test in many countries.* New ideas are needed to replace or at least flank the old command and control approach, which has lost its credibility. One of the most interesting new avenues is co-operative environmental management, whereby public and private parties work together to tackle a problem. It is interesting because it seems to be well suited to handling complex environmental problems. This kind of management makes use of the policy instrument known as the Environmental Agreement. That tool is geared to the development of sustainable procedures for working out solutions. The Environmental Agreement provides scope to deal with some essential characteristics of current environmental problems. Indeed, one of the most vexing aspects of environmental problems is uncertainty, both in the ecological sphere and with respect to the economic effects of intervention. In short, this instrument takes the unknown into account.
