Abstract

This chapter argues that clarifies the meanings of a number of different terms that are frequently used in the context of discussing health promotion. The notion of health promotion has undergone considerable change over the course of its evolution as it responds to emerging needs, particularly in health development and for vulnerable groups. Residents of three urban retirement villages were invited to be participants in a pilot study to identify and address issues of concern regarding their health and well-being. Residents stated that they valued the opportunity to clarify mutual concerns and to make collective decisions on changes that could enhance their own health and well-being. A project was designed to conduct one-hour diabetes education and screening sessions for men aged 40–65 years at worksites in rural Western Australia. The screening team consisted of a diabetes nurse educator, a community nurse, a medical student and the project researcher.
