HealthProElderly Evidence-based Guidelines for Older People: United Kingdom National Evaluation Report

By Jenny R. Billings and Patrick R Brown


This report features in-depth analyses of three health promotion interventions amongst older adults that have taken place in the UK during the last ten years (and much longer in one case). All three projects have been assessed as demonstrating high levels of effectiveness in achieving specific results with regard to the public health of their targeted local older people. The three interventions vary quite dramatically in both the nature and goals of the intervention as well as the means of evaluation, yet all possess a number of discernable characteristics which are crucial to their success in promoting the health of older people. Such facets may be taken to represent key components of what comprises ‘best practice’ in health promotion amongst older people. These features will be elucidated implicitly throughout this report before being clarified more explicitly in its concluding discussions
