Health Promotion & Disease Prevention: An Assessment Guide for BHCDA Projects. Administrative Document.
Medicus Systems Corp., Washington, DC.
Designed to help health center administrators and providers deliver health care services within the broad context of disease prevention, health promotion, and health education, this guide serves as a companion document to "Promoting Health and Preventing Disease: Objectives for the Nation" (ED 209 206). Its purpose is to help in program planning and to offer assessment guidelines for specific project needs. The guide is organized into five major sections: (1) Assessing Your Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Program: An Overview; (2) Preventive Health Services; (3) Health Protection; (4) Health Promotion; and (5) References. Each section, through a format consisting of one or two introductory paragraphs followed by clusters of questions grouped under subheadings, considers five areas: (1) needs assessment; (2) program linkages--offering suggestions for developing cooperative working arrangements with organizations having similar goals; (3) health promotion and education--focusing on ways of enabling patients to assume more responsibility for their own health care; (4) program evaluation; and (5) resources.
