Synopsis

Planning, Implementing, and Evaluating Health Promotion Programs A Primer by James F. McKenzie, Brad L. Neiger, Rosemary Thackeray

Planning, Implementing, and Evaluating Health Promotion Programs: A Primer provides students with a comprehensive overview of the practical and theoretical skills needed to plan, implement, and evaluate health promotion programs in a variety of settings. The Fifth Edition features updated information throughout, including new theories and models such as the Healthy Action Process Approach (HAPA) and the Community Readiness Model (CRM), sections on grant writing and preparing a budget, real-life examples of marketing principles and processes, and a new classification system for evaluation approaches and designs. It has been thoroughly reviewed by both practitioners and professors to reflect the latest trends in the field. I too just took the CHES exam in April and passed...What I found to be most helpful was reading over Planning, Implementing, and Evaluating Health Promotion Programs: A Primer (4th Ed.) by Mckenzie, Neiger, & Smeltzer. I think it would give individuals who have been out of school for a while a good refresher on not only the terminology, but also core concepts. -Joseph D. Visker, MS,CHES, Department of Health Education & Recreation Southern Illinois University, Carbondale
