N3335 Health Promotion Across the Lifespan

Overview: Health Risk Assessment and Health Promotion Contract

Go to the website https://www.virginiamason.org/home/body.cfm?id=149 and complete the Health Risk Assessment. You will NOT submit the online results of the HRA for grading. (The HRA will ask for some information such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels, but if you do not know that information, you may click “I don’t know.”)

For each section of the Health Risk Assessment in the document below, provide a substantial summary of your results from the HRA taken online. In each section’s summary, be sure to include any additional information of your health and lifestyle that might play a role in your overall wellness.

You will contract to change/improve one health behavior during this course. Your Health Risk Assessment can give you guidance on your choice, but you do not have to choose to work on the area in which you scored lowest on your Health Risk Assessment.

Part of the contract requires you to evaluate your current “stage of change” according to the stages described by Zimmerman, Olsen, and Bosworth in the article, “A ‘Stages of Change’ Approach to Helping Patients Change Behavior.” ( www.aafp.org/afp/20000301/1409.html .)

You will be tracking your progress toward the goals in your contract by completing journal entries for four weeks, then analyze your motivation, successes, and obstacles in the final week of the course.


· Devise a personal Health Promotion contract to be used for the duration of the course.

· Discuss the Stages of Change model in relation to health behavior changes for others and self.

Your goals should be written in SMART goal format, meaning they should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. Please go to these two websites for more detailed information on SMART goal format: http://www.cooperinstitute.org/2011/12/goal-setting-sample-tool/


Identify one goal to work toward during this course, knowing that you will be journaling about your progress in your journaling assignment, four times a week for four weeks.

An example of a goal that is NOT in SMART goal format is: I will walk more often.

An example of a properly formatted SMART goal is:

I, (student name), will walk for 30 minutes, three times a week by 10/1/16. (The date inserted here should be the Saturday of Module 4 for your course.)

Your SMART goal:

1. I, [Name]

agree to

by [date: [Saturday of Module 4]

2. I will use the following tools to monitor my progress:

The weekly assignment Journal and (at least one other tool)-

[chart, graph, scales, etc., as appropriate for your goal]

3. To reach my final goal I have devised the following schedule of goals and

rewards [Need two mini-goals and your final goal (as written above in #1) and also list rewards for all. Be sure that your mini goals match your final goal, meaning they are in alignment with and will help you achieve your final goal. As in the example goal of walking, then both mini goals should address walking – see highlighted area below].

You should have a total of 3 goals, 3 dates, and 3 rewards in the template below.

Mini goal example:

I will walk 10 minutes twice a week

Mini goal end dateTake time to get a manicure
Mini goal #1: write your specific measurable mini goal here-Saturday, Module 2 of your course
