  Thank you for participating in this health education/promotion terminology update! You are being asked to review the terms, and their accompanying definitions, to decide if each term should remain for inclusion in the 2020 edition of the Terminology Report or if it should be removed or modified. Space is provided after each term for your input. Following the list of terms and definitions, there is a section where you may add any term, or terms, that you believe are missing from the report.

As you conduct your review of the health education and health promotion terms, please consider the following seven criteria for inclusion of a term:

1. Essentialness – Is the term basic to the field of health education and promotion and is it necessary for communication?

2. Authoritativeness – Is the term recognized, or accepted, by the health education/promotion profession as part of the official language?

3. Significance – Is the term so important in communication within and among health education and health promotion groups that its use requires a common interpretation?

4. Encompassment – Is the term sufficiently broad and inclusive to eliminate unnecessary additional definitions but is restrictive enough to have clear meaning?

5. Usage – Does use of the term occur frequently enough to affect communications?

6. Adaptability – Can various health professions and other individuals and groups effectively use the term?

7. Clarity –Is a definition for the term necessary to maintain consistency of use among health education and health promotion disciplines?

Again thank you for your assistance. Dixie Dennis & Donna Videto Co-Chairs of the 2020 Terminology Committee
