Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Access to Health, Sixth Edition builds upon the success of previous editions by providing an updated, comprehensive overview of all aspects that affect one's health. Employing a behavioral management approach, this book is exceptionally comprehensive in content and theory, while at the same time providing the practical means of assessing and managing personal health behaviors. The sixth edition explores the latest changes in the field and is the first to include full-chapter coverage of communication, violence, and the addiction process. The book encourages self-exploration, maintains a contemporary focus, and emphasizes current trends in personal health.

New for this edition is an interactive CD-ROM packaged FREE with the textbook. This valuable study tool provides the opportunity to review and reinforce concepts with appropriate examples, to explore the latest information and stay up-to-date with ongoing research (such as the Framingham Heart Study), and to apply acquired knowledge. The CD-ROM continues the Access to Health tradition of a strong pedagogical framework designed to enhance learning and encourage the adoption of healthy living habits. The CD-ROM contains a study outline of each chapter of Access to Health including numerous clickable icons corresponding to chapter content. The icons Video, Audio, Weblink, Activity, Practice Test serve as an opening to expanded information and encourage information retention and application.

For anyoneinterested in Health and Wellness. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Rebecca J. Donatelle is a teacher and mentor for undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Public Health at Oregon State University. Although her main emphasis is in the area of Public Health Promotion and Health Education, she teaches a wide range of students from many disciplines on the Oregon State campus. Donatelle is an Associate Professor in Public Health and is the Coordinator of Public Health Promotion and Education Programs in the College of Health and Human Sciences. She has a Ph.D. in Community Health/Health Education, a Master of Science degree in Health Education, and a Bachelor of Science degree with majors in both Health/Physical Education and English. She is also a Certified Health Education Specialist.

Among the courses that she teaches are Principles of Health Behaviors, Stress and Health, Violence and Public Health, Epidemiology and Control of Chronic Diseases, and Introduction to Human Disease (Communicable). Recently, she has developed a new course on Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

 

In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Donatelle is an active researcher in the area of health behaviors, and she has been the principal investigator on a number of randomized, controlled trials focusing on motivating behavior change, the use of social support facilitating behavior change, and the use of community supports to assist individuals in changing high-risk behaviors. Currently, she is working with pregnant women who smoke in an effort to get them to reduce or stop smoking during pregnancy and beyond. She has also conducted extensive research in the area of decision making and factors influencing the use of alternative and traditional health care providers for treatment of low back pain; illness and sick role behaviors; women's decisions about treatment for breast cancer and cardiac rehabilitation; and stress in health and disease.

 

Donatelle has received the Leadership Award, an Outstanding Teacher Award, and a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Presidential Award for Promising New Research in the Smoke-Free Families National Initiative. She has been an active member of several state and national committees and task forces and continues to work to reduce risk for high-risk populations, particularly women and older adults. In addition to Access to Health, Donatelle is the author of Health: The Basics, Fitness for Health, and AIDS and STIs in a Global Society, and she has written several chapters and manuscripts for various health-related books and journals.

This book covers everything you need to know to pass the Dantes Health exam. It's well worth its cost, if you want/need a high passing score.

I just completed a health class and this was the textbook we used. I learned so much from using this book. This book is precise and to the point. It provides you with colorful pictures, charts, and definitions that's superb. It provides great information on Weight Management, Cancer, Heart Disease, Illicit Drugs, and Alchohol.
No health class should go with out this book. This is defintely a great teaching tool for those that are taking a health class, or simply a great reference guide. I give this book five stars.

The 1999 Edition of Access to Health by Donatelle and Davis is excellent! User friendly writing style, colors, charts, references, and a comprehensive collection of chapters that cover all the key personal health related topics. From human sexuality to societal violence, the text covers all the bases. The authors have worked hard to bring this Edition up to date with the most current health research references/topics. I strongly recommend considering adoption for any introductory personal health course.

This was a required book for a college health class. The book itself is pretty lame and mostly an insult to the average person's intelligence, but seeing as it was required and I HAD to buy it, it was a really good price compared to what the college bookstore charges. I bought it used on here for next to nothing and it's literally like sparkling brand new! No marks in it and hardly any wear. (Maybe the last person who used it thought it sucked too and never read it.) However, I can't fathom any reason anyone would buy this unless it was a required text for a class.
