Health promotion programs that focus on educating people on the links between health behaviors and health outcomes fail because they do not recognize the complex factors that impact health behavior and successful behavior change.
This presentation, based on several systematic reviews of the literature and audits of the most successful workplace health promotion programs, distills these complex factors into four important elements: Awareness (A), Motivation (M), Skills (S) and Opportunity (O). The Opportunity Dimension has six components: Peers, Organizations, State, Society, Environment, and Equality. Dr. Michael O'Donnell will discuss the components of these elements and their relative importance, and how you can apply it to your own organization.
You will learn:
- How you can use this framework to critique an existing program
- How you can use this framework to plan and build a new program
- How to apply this framework and both individual and company levels
