VISION:

 

We live in an era where chronic disease management consumes the majority of health care budgets in most health care systems. The root causes of many of these diseases are behavioural, cultural, or environmental. Consequently, social determinants of health, and population based approaches to prevention and treatment are now on the radar screens of governments, universities and research funding bodies.

There is an emerging evidence base for health promotion that crosses multiple fields, but it is unrealistic to think that clinicians can screen out the pearls from this vast and diverse literature. The PATCH Health Promotion Literature Project seeks to distil, deliver, and contextualize emerging evidence from the HP literature.

 

DELIVERABLES:

  • Lit screen, Submissions and Upvoting by multidisciplinary team of academics and community health promoters

  • 24 articles per year with abstracts, synthesis and expert commentaries

  • Transparent processes

The physician’s function is fast becoming social and preventative, rather than individual and curative. Upon him, society relies to ascertain and through measures essentially educational, to enforce the conditions that prevent disease and make positively for the physical and moral well-being. Abraham Flexner - 1910
