Optimizing adherence, screening risk factors, fostering the acquisition of healthy behaviors among individuals, organizations, and communities, and even changing policies are ways that physical therapists can promote health and prevent disease. Effective teaching approaches and behavior change strategies are fundamental elements of successful health promotion. The course focuses on applying teaching and health promotion skills across several settings: clinics, schools, and communities. Evidence-based approaches as well as the unique and challenging elements of each of these settings will be explored.
