Title:
The KwaZulu-Natal Health Promotion Model
Abstract:
The KwaZulu-Natal Health Promotion Model
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Uys, Leana, DSocSc
P.I. Institution Name:University of Natal
Title:Doctor
Since the acceptance of the Ottawa Charter it has been an expectation that nurses will become increasingly involved in health promotion. However, attempts at health promotion by community health nurses are often still opportunistic, fragmented and uncoordinated. The Universities of Natal and McMaster worked with the Department of Health of the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa over the last four years to develop and test a model for health promotion which will make it possible for Community Health Nurses to incorporate health promotion in their practice in a realistic and effective manner. The model assumes that health is not only dependent on health behaviour or health care, that health promotion and illness prevention are important aspects of the role of CH nurses, and that empowerment of groups and communities is essential for health promotion. The model is a change model, aimed at identifying how nurses can best stimulate changes in factors influencing health in a community setting. It identifies and describes five essential elements, and illustrate these from the implementation of the model in KwaZulu-Natal.
