Developing Consensus on the CompHP Professional Standards for Health Promotion in Europe
Speller, Viv; Parish, Richard; Davison, Heather; Zilnyk, Anna
Health Education & Behavior, v39 n6 p663-671 Dec 2012
Building on the CompHP Core Competencies for health promotion the Professional Standards for Health Promotion have been developed and consulted on across Europe. The standards were formulated to fit within the complexity of professional, occupational and educational standards frameworks in Europe as learning outcome standards with performance criteria, following the approach of the European Qualifications Framework. Three phases of consultation included an electronic consultation survey, focus groups and workshops, and an online consultation. The standards were revised at each stage following comments received. Responses from across Europe and beyond indicate high levels of agreement with the standards and support for their implementation in education and employment settings to accredit health promotion practitioners and raise the profile of health promotion in Europe.
