Silicon Valley Healthy Aging Partnership
Evidence Based Health Promotion
is the process of planning, implementing, and evaluating programs adapted from trusted models or interventions to address health issues.
Evidence Based Health Promotion Programs provide demonstrated clear benefits through rigorous research, minimal risk to participants, and clear physiological, psychological, and social benefits to program participants.
Evidence-based programs provide measurable outcomes in senior health and fitness such as:
decreases in falls
increases in functional fitness for seniors
increase in positive self-perception
increases in self efficacy
other positive health benefits
an increase in adherence to best practices
Completion of an evidence-based program from a certified trainer or coach can help members of our older adult community feel empowered to manage their own health, stay active and lead more fulfilling lives.
You can learn more about evidence-based programs and their efficacy at The Center for Healthy Aging.
