PLANNING APPROACHES Planning approaches typically involve three steps: Assessment of the health problem and its causal/supporting factors. Development of an intervention (health promotion program) based on the assessment, targeting selected factors identified in the assessment (and utilizing appropriate theory to guide intervention components). Evaluation of the intervention, to determine if it has been implemented as planned and if it has actually affected the causal or related factors (identified in the assessment) that it was identified. PRECEDE-PROCEED is one such comprehensive planning approach, organized in stages or phases.

PRECEDE-PROCEED PHASE 1:  SOCIAL ASSESSMENT What is it?: Assessment of quality of life and social factors surrounding one or more health problems; ranking or positioning the health problems in context. Sources of information: Social indicators like employment rates, availability, of health care services, education, crime, housing, parks, recreation, facilities and so on. What this tells you: From an ecological perspective, provides an overview of the connection between health and other factors, as well as potential social or quality of life outcomes for your program.
