Abstract:
What kind of health education do you do with the healthiest population you can find? The adaptation, development, and utilization of an innovative model for use with the staff of Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC; an outdoor equipment retailer) is described. This model was developed as part of an undergraduate Community Health Nursing practicum course by the authors. A needs assessment of the population indicated that health enhancement through education was a priority for the staff of MEC. A model depicting a climbing motif that resonated with the population was adapted to emphasize creating life balance in 4 main themes related to holistic health. The model was then used in piloting and evaluating 1 education intervention pertaining to each of the 4 main themes. Finally, evaluation of the model's efficacy was undertaken and sustainability within the population after project completion was ensured. The potential use of this model beyond the population of retail sport store staffers into many occupational and other settings will also be addressed.
