New! Best Practice Guidelines for Mental Health Promotion Programs: Refugees. Canadas foreign-born population is unique and varied, with cultural groups represented from all over the world. For the majority, Canada is their choice of country for reasons that include seeking opportunities to improve the future of their families, to join friends or family living in Canada, and/or fleeing their country of origin and seeking asylum in Canada. As many health promotion initiatives do not reach this population, Best Practice Guidelines for Mental Health Promotion Programs: Refugeesoffers an opportunity to review current health promotion programs to improve their effectiveness in addressing the mental health and well-being of refugees. As the third in a series of online guides for promoting positive mental health, this resource has been developed to support health and social service providers in incorporating best practice approaches to mental health promotion interventions focusing on refugees..

Newcomers Sexual Health Promotion Project. Description of Program. As newcomers to Canada, many IRN-PHAs (Immigrant, Refugee, Non-Status People living with HIV/AIDS) endure challenges related to their migration and adaptation to a new environment. Many of this population struggle with confusing policies and procedures on their immigration process while transitioning to a new culture. In particular, many of them face service access barriers and difficulty obtaining medical, employment, housing support as a result of negative attitudes and discriminatory practices directed toward their HIV and immigration status.. The Newcomers Sexual Health Promotion Project was founded by the Committee for Accessible AIDS Treatment in 2010 to improve the health of Newcomer PHAs from the diverse ethno-racial communities (African, Carribbean, Latin, East Asian and South Asian communities) through peer based outreach and educational activities to increase the visibility and effectiveness of HIV/AIDS and STI ...
STUDY OBJECTIVE--To examine the difficulties of developing and maintaining outcome evaluation designs in long term, community based health promotion programmes. DESIGN--Semistructured interviews of health promotion managers. SETTING--Wales and two reference health regions in England. PARTICIPANTS--Nine health promotion managers in Wales and 18 in England. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS--Information on selected heart health promotion activity undertaken or coordinated by health authorities from 1985-90 was collected. The Heartbeat Wales coronary heart disease prevention programme was set up in 1985, and a research and evaluation strategy was established to complement the intervention. A substantial increase in the budget occurred over the period. In the reference health regions in England this initiative was noted and rapidly taken up, thus compromising their use as control areas. CONCLUSION--Information on large scale, community based health promotion programmes can disseminate quickly and ...
Summary: Health promoters require credible evidence to identify relevant determinants of health, choose activities to promote health, and then evaluate the effectiveness of these chosen activities. The issue of evidence in health promotion is a complex one that requires critical examination of what is meant by health promotion, the focus of health promotion activities, and the ideological issues and principles that inform health promotion practice. It is argued that health promoters should be explicit about the principles and values behind their health promotion activities and consider how ideology, principles, values, and data interact to produce evidence ...
The Take TIME initiative will be developed and delivered in conjunction with the Township of Uxbridge and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. The Durham Region Health Department, the Ministry of Health Promotion and Sport, and 35 schools and community organizations have also agreed to collaborate on project activities. The health promotion campaign will occur from October 15, 2010 until May 31, 2011. The campaign activities were developed from the input of parents and programme/care providers gathered during the planning phase of this research.. The impact of the Take TIME campaign will be evaluated in two ways. The overall readiness of the community to support healthy childhoods will be evaluated using the Community Readiness Model, which relies on a series of interviews with key individuals in leadership positions. Awareness and current behaviour among community members will be assessed through the completion of telephone surveys of randomly selected households. Each of these ...

Stroke places a significant burden to all affected individuals, but it is perhaps more significant amongst members of black, minority and ethnic communities, who may experience poorer awareness of stroke symptoms than the general population. Recently, several initiatives tried to improve public awareness that symptoms of stroke need to be treated as a medical emergency. However, ethnic communities present cultural barriers, requiring tailored health promotion interventions, whose effectiveness remains uncertain. Our systematic review aimed to identify relevant published evidence, synthesize the main study components and identify evidence of the effectiveness of the interventions. MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, and PsycInfo were searched for journal articles on health promotion interventions for increasing stroke awareness in ethnic minorities, published in English between 1995 and 2012. Search results were collaboratively assessed by the authors; included studies were analysed to identify their main
Canadian statistics suggest that a high percentage of male university students engage in hazardous or harmful consumption of alcohol and this misuse has been linked to mental health issues and social problems on campus. Socially constructed ideals of masculinity have been associated with substance misuse and with social forces that constrain dialogue about these issues. However, engaging post-secondary, male students in health promotion initiatives is a notoriously difficult endeavour As part of a larger study, a Summit model approach was used across three Canadian universities to develop male student leadership and promote meaningful dialogue about male substance misuse on campus. This workshop will present lessons learned in the implementation of the Summit model to engage male students, and will engage the audience in dialogue about application of these, and other ideas, across university campuses. ...

PURPOSE: The purpose of study was to identify the influence of parenting efficacy on health promotion behavior during early childhood and to provide baseline data for developing health promotion programs. METHODS: This study was a cross-sectional survey research study. The participants were 202 parents of children in early childhood selected by convenience sampling. From October 1 to October 8, 2008 data were collected using structured and self-report questionnaires. RESULTS: The mean score for parenting efficacy for these parents was 3.54, and health promotion behavior had a mean score of 3.21. The health promotion behavior was statistically different according to the childs health status, fathers smoking habits, and mothers eating habits. Parenting efficacy (17%) was the best predictor, followed by childs health status in early childhood (2%), and mothers eating habits (1%) which together explained 20% of the variance in health promotion behavior during early childhood. CONCLUSION: The ...

This review explores the role of health promotion in the prevention of avoidable blindness in developing countries. Using examples from eye health and other health topics from developing countries, the review demonstrates that effective eye health promotion involves a combination of three components: health education directed at behaviour change to increase adoption of prevention behaviours and uptake of services; improvements in health services such as the strengthening of patient education and increased accessibility and acceptability; and advocacy for improved political support for blindness prevention policies. Current eye health promotion activities can benefit by drawing on experiences gained by health promotion activities in other health topics especially on the use of social research and behavioural models to understand factors determining health decision making and the appropriate choice of methods and settings. The challenge ahead is to put into practice what we know does work. An ...
Depression Education and Health Promotion Project (DEHPP) is a program designed to educate students (mostly middle school but any group is considered), teachers/school personnel and/or parents about depression and other mental health issues (anxiety, substance use,LGBTQI, etc.). Presentations last one to one and one-half hours and include one to two movies about depression (done by professional actors - one for students and one for adults), work sheets, educational booklets, other informative handouts, as well as time at the end for open discussion and Q&A. Medical school faculty, UConn Health staff, and medical students are typically involved with the presentations, which are moderated by the project coordinator..

TY - CONF. T1 - Community health promotion approaches within institutions for disabled. AU - Holm, Jesper. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - From a two years study of 3 special educational institutions for disabled in Zealand, Denmark, we have done qualitative studies of the focus-areas that the institutions have pointed out as their Best Practices of Health Promotion in everyday life. We have in general followed research questions: What practices do special institutions for people with developmental disabilities believe to be health promoting, and will a research based reconstruction of these practices with health promotion concepts have anything to offer for professionals in this area? How will the involved parties experience each other practices and is possible to establish a mutual institutional learning process, as a surplus to normal quality control (NPM)? What understandings of psyche, individual, mind-body-spirit, health promotion etc. are involved in these practices, and how do they relate to ...
This section discusses the scope of health promotion and disease prevention for a Registered Nurse. The RN must identify risk factors for disease, assess clients for those particular health risks, assess the clients readiness to learn with any barriers to learning and understanding their preferred learning style, and educate the client about those health risks. The RN should participate in community health education, educate the clients on health promotion and disease prevention activities, and inform the client of relevant immunization schedules. The RN should integrate any complementary therapies into their health promotion activities for the healthy client, provide information about health promotion and maintenance recommendations, provide follow-up resources to the client, evaluate the clients understanding, and implement community-based care. ...

Background The proposed study is a pragmatic randomised controlled trial with two parallel arms. The primary hypothesis is that singing groups for older people improve both physical and mental aspects of qualaity of life when compared to usual activities. Potential participants will be volunteers over 60 years living in the community and recruited through publicity. Eligible and consenting participants will be randomized to either a singing group or a control group. Singing groups will take part in a twelve week planned programme of singing and control groups will continue with usual activities. The primary outcome measure will be the York SF-12, a health related quality of life measure which will be administered at baseline, three and six months after baseline. The study will evaluate both effectiveness and cost-effectiveness. Discussion This study proposes to add to the exisiting body of evidence on the value of singing for older people by using a rigorous methodological design, which includes ...

On 29 November, the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee (ENVI) of the European Parliament organised a workshop on Health Promotion and Primary Prevention. The workshop was chaired by MEP Alojz Peterle (EPP, SL).. The first session focused on the state of primary prevention and health promotion in Europe. The floor was given to participants from NGOs. Dr. Aldo Lupo represented the European Union of General Practitioners/Family Physicians (UEMO). Dr. Lupo informed the participants that structured clusters do not exist in all of the Member States. He added that where structured clusters exist, it is easier to share guidelines. On the issue of registered lists, Dr. Lupo emphasised that in cases there is a registered list proactive interventions are ethically justified since patients share a close relationship with their doctor. Dr. Lupo added that changing the behaviour is the most difficult thing. He further underlined that the focus should be on primary prevention were the ...
For over 35 years Ronald Labonté has been critically analyzing the state of health promotion in Canada and the world. In 1981, he identified the shortcomings of the groundbreaking Lalonde Report by warning of the seductive appeal of so-called lifestyle approaches to health. Since then, he has left a trail of critical work identifying the barriers to - and opportunities for -health promotion work. More recently, he has shown how the rise of economic globalization and acceptance of neo-liberal ideology has come to threaten the health of those in both developed and developing nations. In his recent commentary, Labonté shows how the United Nations 2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can offer a new direction for health promoters in these difficult times.
According to the World health organization (WHO), health promotion is defined as the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. It moves beyond a focus on individual behavior towards a wide range of social and environmental interventions. (World Health Organization, 2014) Nurses play a pivotal role in health promotion that include disease prevention, follow-up treatment, patient education and behavioral changes in respect to their health. Health promotion by nurses have led to positive outcomes including patient awareness, knowledge of diseases process, self-management, and improved quality of life. (Kemppainen, Tossavainen, & Turunen, 2013) This paper will focus on health promotion in the nursing practice through literature review, the evolution of nursing roles and responsibilities in health promotion, the implementation methods for health promotion that encompasses all areas of nursing, and the three levels of health promotion prevention. Primary ...
Successful mental health promotion ideally combines an approach that involves many different government agencies and community organisations to deliver coordinated programs at the individual, community and system levels. Much of the effort in mental health promotion needs to occur beyond the healthcare system, in sectors that impact on the daily lives of individuals and communities to support the development of resilience and maintenance of mental well being. These include housing, education, employment, welfare and justice. In the health sector, mental health promotion should be incorporated into the activities of general health promotion units. Mental health services should also adopt a recovery-oriented approach and deliver services in a respectful and non-judgemental manner ...
Exercise and diet are the cornerstones of management of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Many older people have difficulty in exercising, missing benefits on glycaemic control, weight, cardiac disease and mood. We report the outcomes of a 6 month structured exercise and support programme based on a health promotion model, on physical activity, glycaemic control and parameters of cardiovascular risk in non-exercisers, compared with standard outpatient clinic education. A total of 26 non-exercising patients were randomised to an intervention or control group (ten men, 16 women; mean age (+/- S.D.) 60 +/- 8 years). Programme participation was not associated with any significant increase in activity. Glycated hemoglobin (HbAtc) levels tended to stabilise in the intervention group during the 6 month programme and to deteriorate in the control group (P = 0.03); by 12 months HbA1C levels deteriorated to a similar level in both. Programme participation did not cause significant change in
In November 1986, 212 participants from 38 countries convened in Ottawa, Canada, at the first International Conference on Health Promotion organized by the World Health Organization (WHO), Health and Welfare Canada, and the Canadian Public Health Association. Although not representative of the entire globe, these participants adopted the Ottawa Charter on health promotion as the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. The five action areas identified were to: build healthy public policy; create supportive environments; strengthen community action; develop personal skills; and re-orient health care services, toward prevention of illness and promotion of health [1-3]. The Charter laid the foundation for subsequent efforts in advancing global health over the next 30 years, including development of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs have given way to a more robust and comprehensive agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) [4], ...
Evidence-Based Health Promotion Interventions for People with Disabilities: Results of a Systematic Review of Literature, by Tom Seekins & Tory Kimpton
BACKGROUND: Health promotion interventions are often complex and not easily transferable from one setting to another. The objective of this article is to present the development of a tool to analyze the transferability of these interventions and to support their development and adaptation to new settings. METHODS: The concept mapping (CM) method was used. CM is helpful for generating a list of ideas associated with a concept and grouping them statistically. Researchers and stakeholders in the health promotion field were mobilized to participate in CM and generated a first list of transferability criteria. Duplicates were eliminated, and the shortened list was returned to the experts, scored for relevance and grouped into categories. Concept maps were created, then the project team selected the definitive map. From the final list of criteria thus structured, a tool to analyze transferability was created. This tool was subsequently tested by 15 project leaders and nine experts. RESULTS: In all, 18 experts

The number of people with a chronic disease will strongly increase in the next decades. Therefore, prevention of disease becomes increasingly important. The aim of this systematic review was to identify factors that negatively influence participation in population-based disease prevention programs in General Practice and to establish whether the program type is related to non-participation levels. We conducted a systematic review in Pubmed, EMBASE, CINAHL and PsycINFO, covering 2000 through July 6th 2012, to identify publications including information about characteristics of non-participants or reasons for non-participation in population-based disease prevention programs in General Practice. A total of 24 original studies met our criteria, seven of which focused on vaccination, eleven on screening aimed at early detection of disease, and six on screening aimed at identifying high risk of a disease, targeting a variety of diseases and conditions. Lack of personal relevance of the program, younger age,
A unique feature of Amethyst Womens Addiction Centre is that Health Promotion Programming - or prevention work - is understood as a crucial component of quality care for our community.

ABSTRACT. Health promotion is a multifaceted activity. Women and children are particularly vulnerable regarding access to quality health care, with young African women reportedly the poorest and most economically marginalised and least educated sector in South Africa. Understanding the context within which a person lives is an essential component in the health educators teaching strategy. Understanding urban black womens health care practices will enable health promoters to develop interventions that are successful. The problem investigated was to gain an understanding of the health care practices of urban black women that could influence health promotion activities. The design was qualitative exploratory. The respondents were women living in an urban township in Tshwane, South Africa. The sampling method was convenient and purposive and the sample size was determined by saturation of the data. Data was gathered through semi-structured interviews using six specific themes and the analysed ...

The goal of mental health promotion is to enhance awareness and understanding of mental health issues, reduce stigma and promote positive mental health to the public. Mental health promotion includes education and training of human resources in the formal mental health/addiction system. The concept of mental health literacy is often used in the context of mental health promotion. Mental health literacy refers to the knowledge, beliefs and abilities that support the recognition, management or prevention of mental illnesses or substance use disorders. A high public level of mental health literacy makes early recognition of and appropriate intervention in mental illnesses and substance use disorders more likely. It is also effective in reducing stigma. Mental health promotion is highly linked to prevention as well and there are three main types. Primary prevention is directed at averting a potential mental health/substance use problem. Secondary prevention is directed at early detection and ...
The main objective of this study was to validate Penders Health Promotion Model (HPM) as a motivational model for exercise/physical activity self-management for people with spinal cord injuries (SCIs). Quantitative descriptive research design using hierarchical regression analysis (HRA) was used. A total of 126 individuals with SCI were recruited through the National Spinal Cord Injury Association, other SCI support groups, and professors in rehabilitation counseling across the United States. Outcome measures used were the International Physical Activity Questionnaire and the Physical Activity Stages of Change Instrument. The HRA results indicated that preinjury physical activity/exercise level, severity of SCI, and commitment to a plan for exercise and physical activity were predictive of postinjury exercise and physical activity level. In addition, friend/family support, perceived self-efficacy, and perceived benefits were the strongest predictors of commitment to a plan of action for ...

The increased prevalence of obesity and overweight in the United States and Hawaii are just some of the underlying factors leading to catastrophic death rates due to heart disease. Hence, a worksite wellness Program entitled Dump The Plump (DTP) was conceptualized, implemented, and sustained at the State Laboratories Division (SLD) for a period of five years, 2010-2015 to reverse or prevent these risk factors. With the University of Hawaii Institutional Review Board approval, SLD employees were recruited and self-identified as a Player or Cheerleader into the DTP intervention which initially lasted for 1 year then shortened to six months thereafter.

Introduction. It has long been recognised the many influences on health; social class, gender, ethnic and regional variations in health all exist in the United Kingdom (Livingston, 1997). Inequalities in health are the result of the physical and cultural settings in which people have to live (Whitehead, 1991).
