De l’enfance à la vieillesse : Soigner pour prévenir

This 440–page publication looks at the main prevention challenges from childhood to old age, and daily actions that a physician can take to prevent diseases and limit their complications. Many tables and figures illustrate 316 key concepts centred around issues linked to lifestyle habits, chronic diseases, infectious diseases, occupational health, environmental health and health care organization.

The only textbook on preventive medicine in French that is adapted to Québec, De l’enfance à la vieillesse : Soigner pour prévenir (From childhood to old age: Health care for prevention) is intended for physicians in training, clinicians and public health professionals.

Developed by Dr. Brigitte Maheux, Chairholder, and Dr. Andrée Gilbert, the Chair's Director of Education, this book is the result of a collaborative process involving almost 30 writers and editors from a variety of disciplines.
