Very professional presentation, Rachelle! It was good for me to review how many factors go into health promotion. I’m with you and Pender that health promotion is key to disease prevention. There are small moments of education opportunities that can be used promote health and really are a responsibility of nurses to seize the opportunities!

Thanks Sarah! We really do have to seize the opportunity as you point out. It is difficult when there’s only so much time in a shift but even if we can provide literatue to the patient to get them thinking about how lifestyles changes can impact their health and promote well being then it is worth it 🙂
