A Journal of Health Promotion/Health Education Applications, Policy and Professional Issues

Health Promotion Practice (HPP) publishes authoritative, peer-reviewed articles devoted to the practical application of health promotion and education. The journal is unique in its focus on critical and strategic information for professionals engaged in the practice of developing, implementing, and evaluating health promotion and disease prevention programs.

Health Promotion Practice will serve as a forum to explore the applications of health promotion/public health education interventions programs and best practice strategies in various settings, including but not limited to: community, health care, worksite, educational and international settings. It also examines practice-related issues, including program descriptions, teaching methods, needs assessment tools and methodologies, intervention strategies, health promotion, problem-solving issues, and evaluation presentations.

Special Departments Address Your Specific Concerns

In addition to publishing feature articles, the journal includes a series of three regular departments designed to highlight evolving and timely, state-of-the-art topics in the application of health promotion and education. These commentary pieces will provide expert analysis on issues relevant to the practice of health promotion and education and will be submitted by authors invited by the team of Associate and Deputy Editors. If you are interested in submitting a piece to one of these departments or would like more information, please contact the Editorial Manager, Jeanine Robitaille: jrobitaille@sophe.org. HPP welcomes suggestions from our readers for topics to cover and authors to invite.
