Health Promotion Online Course

This is a free online course developed for the full range of those working in the health communication field, including practicing health communication specialists, those just entering or new to the field, or those who are more experienced. The course provides an introduction to Health Promotion (HP) concepts, theories and resources; identifies what is new and unique to health promotion; orients learners to health communication resources; and serves as a basic learning module.

It was created by the Ontario, Canada Health Promotion Resource System (OHPRS) as a collaborative effort between 22 member organizations with funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. The OHPRS’ role is to support health promoters in Ontario, but this resource can be useful for anyone working in health communication. The course covers foundations of health communication, health communication in action, and developing your own health communication activities.
