Health Promotion Practice


This book considers the key steps in the practical application of health promotion. It starts by showing how it is first necessary to determine the needs of a population and to review the scientific evidence to justify intervening. The wide range of approaches available are considered, including:
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Theatre
  • Mass media
  • Social marketing
  • Community development
  • Public policy
Finally, it discusses how to plan health promotion programmes, how to evaluate them and how to expand their impact by scaling-up the activities to larger populations.
