What’s Next for Health Promotion?
What New Approaches Will Produce the Best Outcomes?
Significant progress has been made in health promotion programs that consistently improve health in workplace, clinical and community settings. The very best programs engage 90%+ of their target audiences, predict future disease and disability with high sensitivity and specificity, reverse or delay the onset of chronic conditions, compress morbidity at the end of life, improve quality of life, and also reduce medical spending and enhance productivity. Wow.
But what is next? What breakthroughs will push participation, engagement, satisfaction, reach, outcomes, efficiencies and ROI to the next level? What innovations in conceptual frameworks, applications of theory, communication, staff training, technology, counseling skills, measurement and analysis, public and organization policy will push outcomes to the next level for the best programs and make those strategies more widespread among all programs?
This conference will feature current practices that produce the best outcomes already, and emerging practices that show the greatest promise for the future.
Proposals are welcome in both of these areas.
