Publisher Description

Many chronic diseases and health conditions could be prevented if more nurses and healthcare professionals took actions toward primary prevention. The goal of health promotion programs (including primary prevention) is to improve the quality of life for communities. To do this, epidemiologic data is used to find the cause or source of the problem, identify risk factors, and then determine occurrence rates. The first step is mass education or immunization through efforts defined as primary prevention. The impact of primary prevention in comprehensive health programs will be discussed as well as its cost effectiveness. Primary prevention will be looked at in a specific aggregate: school aged children with alcohol use. Primary Prevention
