The Prevention Series - Donald R. Hall, DrPH, CHES

program_display

The Prevention Series is health seminar presentations of evidence-based research in PowerPoint format. Key topics provide health educators an opportunity to teach the general public how to live healthy lives and prevent serious illness. A one-page self-scored assessment to print from the CD help people become aware of risks to personal health and preventive actions they can take. Each topic can stand alone or be presented with other topics as a series. The number of slides can be adjusted to meet your needs.

Achieving Lower Blood Pressure: Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to stroke, heart attach, heart failure or kidney failure. Scientific research has shown several lifestyle factors that significantly lower blood pressure.

Preventing Cancer: No one can predict who gets cancer, but the self-assessment focuses prevention efforts on what we know. To fight cancer, create a healthy internal environment hostile to its growth, be watchful and screen appropriately, and treat early.

Understanding Depression: Depression is a leading cause of disability world-wide and is associated with physical changes in the brain. Symptoms are generally scaled in severity, of variable duration, and may need professional care.

Preventing Heart Disease: Modifiable risks for heart disease are so well-studied that one can speak with assurance of lifestyle behaviors that effectively lower risk for heart disease. It’s never too late to begin.

Preventing Diabetes: Abundant scientific research indicates that diabetes is largely preventable through lowering known risks, and when not preventable, the results of diabetes can be minimized through lifestyle.

Achieving Healthy Eating: Research increasingly demonstrates the value of a plant-based diet in contributing to health and in lowering disease risk, especially diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis. Scientific research also shows that some foods do not contribute to our well-being.

Coping With Stress: Stress is a common problem affecting essentially every person sometime in their life. If it becomes excessive or chronic, it can contribute to both physical and mental health problems including headaches, backaches, digestive upsets, high blood pressure, heart attacks, depression, and suicide. Learning good coping skills and ways to avoid or reduce stress in life is a key factor in health of body and mind.

Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease: This program explores research about the brain: how it works, what the major risk factors are for poor brain health, steps you can take to preserve brain health and prevent serious brain diseases.

Exercise Is Preventive Medicine: Physical activity provides many health benefits when done regularly. No wonder doctors are now referring to exercise as “Preventive Medicine.”

WellAssured Quit Smoking Program (2011) - TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE

WellAssured SS

This brief lesson plan is based on conducting 8, 1-hour long meetings over a 6 to 8 week period. Eight sessions (8 hours of instruction) is about the minimum necessary in order to be effective. Other approaches could be tried, for example 2 half-day sessions about a month apart or 4, 2-hour sessions spaced about 2 weeks apart. The class could easily be expanded to 10 or 12 sessions by providing more detail and allowing longer discussions as the course progressed.

The outline follows the sequence of a PowerPoint presentation. The sequence could be altered to meet specific goals of the instructor. The PowerPoint slides come on a CD with printable handouts and self assessments.

Section 1: Provides an overview of smoking risks, the quit smoking process, and information you will need in order to identify your personal reasons for smoking and for wanting to quit.

Section 2: Helps you develop a personal plan for quitting. It includes how to deal with nicotine addiction. You will explore cravings and other physical symptoms and how to get the personal support you need. Find out how ready-to-quit you actually are.

Section 3: Details nutritional needs, healing the damage smoking has done to your body, and reducing future risks. Maintaining and strengthening the body, especially the heart and respiratory system, is critical to maintaining good health.

Section 4: Focuses on the personal aspects or quitting. How will your decision to quit smoking affect your relationships with your family, friends, and co-workers?

WellAssured Quit Smoking Lending Library Includes: Instructor’s Manual and CD (PowerPoint Presentation, Printable Handouts and self assessments).
