Course Summary

Health prevention programs that involve annual physical evaluations and screening is an accepted method to effectively reduce the incidence and negative impact of common diseases. In the United States, research has focused on initiatives to improve community-based programs to increase healthy lifestyles throughout all age groups. New strategies to promote healthier populations must consider prior barriers to preventive healthcare and environmental influences that impact the risk and outcome of a disease state. By developing a solid understanding of health prevention, enhanced strategies to improve health outcomes may be reached by health teams that support healthier populations in U.S. regions and worldwide. A search of the literature provided examples of health prevention approaches to improve healthcare in various world regions, which included case trials and program development aimed at new ways to improve the utilization of accepted standards of care as well as to incorporate individual approaches based on lessons learned relative to disease prevention, treatment and outcomes. There are multifactorial risks and environmental influences that impact how prevention strategies evolve and these constitute an ongoing challenge to the health profession and to medical researchers.
