Assignment: Health Promotion Program
Due Date: Sunday
Please post in your individual forum
Design a health promotion program for individuals in the workplace or in school that
results in increased physical or psychological well-being.
Define the following characteristics of your target population:
· Occupation and location (or school level)
· Age range (or grade levels)
· Education range (or grade levels)
· Socioeconomic range
· Any potential language or cultural factors
· Other additional, pertinent factors
Write four one-sentence goals for the program. Each of the four goals must relate to
successful program completion and should promote one specific health behavior. The
sample goals below describe a work place program designed to help participants achieve
and maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI): Four Goals for the Workday Warrior
Program:
1. Participants will adopt a regular exercise program.
2. Participants will attend 90% of meetings.
3. Participants will identify three reasons why this health behavior is important to them
in the short- and long-term.
4. Participants will work toward attainment and maintenance of a healthy BMI.
Describe ways to get the target group interested in the program. What incentives would
you offer to develop positive attitudes and increase motivation? When and how often will
incentives be offered? How are the incentives related to program goals?
Develop ways to gauge and maintain long-term success. How will participants measure
progress toward modified habits or behavior? How will the program reinforce lasting
success after completion? How will the work or school environment be modified to
support program goals?
