Health Promotion Skills and Tools--At a Glance Series of Introductory Level Web Conferences

1:30 and 3:30 p.m.

Presented by The Health Communication Unit

These introductory-level, two-hour web conferences cover the basics of The Health Communication Unit's (THCU) recommended step models.

In each web conference,
    * we begin with a discussion about the brief, pre-assigned participant preparation task;
    * provide an overview of key concepts and terms;
    * then briefly address the ‘why' and ‘how' of each step; and to close,
    * identify quality sources of more information, tools and personalized consultation services.

We recommend these sessions for
    * Those new to health promotion seeking definitions, tools, resources and organized approaches to practice.
    * Front line staff who need to choose, plan, implement and evaluate health promotion programs and services.
    * Managers or team leaders looking for tools and models to train or advise staff about theory and evidence-informed processes.
