Health promotion capacity building: From tools to training

This health promotion initiative was undertaken in four stages:

  • Stage 1: undertake a desk-top audit and identify gaps in the tools available for health promotion for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. (Completed. A final report is below.)
  • Stages 2–4: develop new tools where gaps exist, pilot the use of those tools, and then train people to implement and evaluate the tools in health promotion settings.

Our aim with this work was to equip health promotion officers with the skills to identify community health promotion needs and then to develop local or larger programs to meet those needs.
