This paper describes a three-stage model for setting targets for health promotion. The model was developed in 1992 in response to the need to identify priority areas for health promotion for women in the Hunter Region of New South Wales.

The reliability of the method was investigated by repli...

However, there is little outcome-based evidence about whether materials containing these characteristics are more effective under real-world conditions. Six pamphlets were designed such that two had most of these characteristics, one had content characteristics only, one had design characteristics only and two had few...
