Case study 7.2

Think about your own programme of study. Do you think there is scope for you to engage in health promotion activities with school children or community groups?

What would you promote and who would this benefit?


  • Stage of programme (level 7, 8 or 9) and associated modules – where might a similar health promotion activity be appropriate?
  • What health promotion topics would be relevant?

      PROMPT: Hand washing? Benefits of not smoking? Healthy eating? Physical activity?

  • Who would be your target audience and how would you approach this group?

PROMPT: School children – meet with local education authority to discuss a way forward – consider the needs of the school curriculum as well as the needs of the undergraduate nursing programme

  • Who would this benefit?

PROMPT: Think about how you would benefit, how your target population would benefit and the wider community benefits of your intervention
