The Program Action Plan(s) provides you with a systematic approach for developing or enhancing a health promotion program based on the standards. The following guidelines are to assist you and your staff in getting the maximum benefit out of the Program Action Plan(s).
Guidelines for use:
- Review the Program Assessment.
- Identify the extent to which your program reflects the standard, and at which level you would like your program to reflect the standard.
- Select the standard(s) that your staff would like to work on. Where you identify room for growth based on the scores, we encourage you and your staff to visit the related standards page(s) and go to the Learn, Observe, and Perform links where you will find key articles and documents, strategies and models used at other institutions, templates that you can use in your team’s daily work, and more. We encourage you to explore these resources that have been handpicked by leaders in the field to assist you in crafting your department’s Program Action Plan and guide your program’s capacity and development.
- Keep an electronic or paper copy of your Program Action Plan(s) as well as any supporting evidence or artifacts that demonstrate completion of your staff’s goal.
