Quotes from Circle of Health users:
""The Circle of Health gives me something concrete and visual to bring to different sectors or disciplines that may speak to them about how we all play a role.”
“The Circle of Health takes a holistic and comprehensive approach to health promotion. It has a great visual depiction of health, the Ottawa Charter strategies for health promotion, determinants of health, and values and beliefs inherent in health promotion. With the current trend in health care seeming to move from hospital based, curative care, to health promotion and illness prevention, this framework has great potential for implementation at a national level.”
“I see it having broad application for students in many disciplines; continuing education for nurses, physicians, social workers, teachers etc; health policy/planners, local government, public health, politicians at all levels.”
“The Circle of Health is a combination of what health promotion has been trying to put across to professionals for years. It is easy to use and very practical in any setting”.
