- DescriptionThe Oxford Textbook Violence Prevention brings together an international team of experts to provide an extensive global account of the global mortality and morbidity burden caused by violence through examining the causes of violence, and what can be done to prevent and reduce violence.
- Author BiographyPeter Donnelly joined the University of St Andrews as Professor of Public Health Medicine in 2008. His research focuses on violence reduction and the evaluating gang member rehabilitation initiative in Glasgow, conducting pilot studies of technology aimed at reducing alcohol related violence, and exploring sports event related domestic abuse. Peter's other area of interest is in Health Systems; their organisation, funding, governance and accountability and how they can be optimised to maximise patient benefit and to reduce health inequalities. He chairs the steering group of the Scottish clinical leadership development program and is a member of the NHS Scotland leadership board. He is a member of the technical board of Milbank Memorial Fund and is on the steering group of the WHO Violence Prevention Alliance. From 2004 -2008 he was Deputy Chief Medical Officer to the Scottish Government. Peter has recently been appointed as President/Chief Executive Officer of Public Health Ontario. Catherine L.

Cathy serves on the Steering Committee of the University of Cape Town's Safety and Violence Initiative, an interdisciplinary research initiative that seeks to understand violence and promote safety. The Safety and Violence Initiative is a member of the World Health Organization's Violence Prevention Alliance (VPA), and Cathy herself co-leads the VPA Parenting Project Group with Christopher Mikton from WHO and Theresa Kilbane from UNICEF.
