Abstract

  • describe the complex web of determinants as part of broad causal pathways that affect health

  • identify and discuss the range of physical, biological and environmental determinants that impact on health

  • suggest why it is important to the practice of public health that you understand how determinants contribute to health

  • understand the complexity of health and illness and the multifaceted role of health determinants

  • relate determinants of health to public health activity and realise the need for multisectoral action and multiple approaches when working to improve health

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
