Question and answer
Q: how can we support the use of risk assessments to promote active participation in all aspects of the lives of individuals in health and social care setting
A: there have been recent moves to develop risk assessment tools and procedures which encourage both consistency of approach and the active participation of the offender in his/her ongoing risk assessment and management. [ [ Similarly the development of accredited programmes both in prison and in the community also ensures that the offender is involved in an ongoing selfassessment of risk and in
joint decision making in relation to risk management... ] Health starts in our homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities. We know that taking care of ourselves by eating well and staying active, not smoking, getting the recommended immunizations and screening tests, and seeing a doctor when we are sick all influence our health. Our health is also determined in part by access to social and economic opportunities; the resources and supports available in our homes, neighborhoods, and communities; the quality of our schooling; the safety of our workplaces; the cleanliness of our water, food, and air; and the nature of our social interactions and relationships. The conditions in which we live explain in part why some Americans are healthier than others and why Americans more generally are not as healthy as they could be.This paper describes what we know about the effectiveness of health promotion strategies and makes suggestions for the emphasis that is required as we move into the 21st century. The strategies are four of the five key health promotion action areas identified in the Ottawa Charter—building healthy public policy, strengthening community action, developing personal skills and creating supportive environments. Re-orienting health services is a very important strategy that has not been addressed consistently over the last 20 years. However, it was not addressed here because it was addressed independently by another background paper presented at the WHO sixth Global Conference on Health Promotion. ]
