Abstract

Organisations are now taking a greater interest in health promotion (HP). This Unit explains why and explores the ways HP is carried out. The USA and Canada are far more involved in HP than the countries of Europe, and have coined many terms for their programmes: ‘Well-Being’, ‘Wellness Participation’, ‘Total Life Concept’ (TLC) and ‘Employee Assistance Programmes’ (EAP).
