Health Promotion Planning
This course provides an introduction for the students on health promotion planning models, definitions about health education and promotion, the concepts of somatic, social and mental health, and the factors that impact on health. Several health promotion perspectives are discussed. The PRECEDE - PROCEED Model is used as a core planning model, but other planning models are discussed as well.
This course discusses primary, secondary and tertiary prevention of cancer and the role of risk and coping behaviors. Social cognitive theories will be discussed to identify main clusters of determinants. In this module we will use the Integrated Model for explaining Behavioral Change as the organizing principle to discuss the clusters. Furthermore, students will execute a small study themselves to learn how to translate theory into practice.
