INSTITUTE OF MEDICINE
2002

Expand view

This book looks at the challenges of delivering important health messages to different audiences. Using case studies in the areas of diabetes, mammography, and mass communication campaigns, it examines the ways in which messages must be adapted to the unique informational needs of their audiences if they are to have any real impact. It also looks at basic theories of communication and behaviour change and focuses on where they apply and where they don't. Although written for the context of the USA, the principles of adapting health messages to the needs of minority populations may have relevance in developing countries
