Health risk communication by Joav Merrick( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Health risk communication deals with planned or unplanned communication to the public about the nature, impact and management of a wide array of health threats, such as cancer, HIV/AIDS or influenza pandemics.

The dominant focus was on experts (government, health organizations ...) merely disseminating risk information and educating a lay and ignorant public about health threats. However, this simplistic top-down model of communication ignored the complex nature of the audience and the publics understanding of risk information.

Just a few decades ago, children born with significant congenital anomalies or genetic and metabolic diseases perished at an early age and very few survived into their teens and even less into adulthood.
