This guide provides a framework and tools for local health department staff in North Carolina who plan and evaluate health education programs. The first section presents health education standards of practice. These standards form a base on which the agency can build quality health education services and help health care practitioners become aware of the parameters needed to define quality services. The second section offers a framework for developing a health education plan. This process begins by identifying and analyzing the causes of health problems and then progresses to determining health education objectives, activities, evaluation procedures, and needed resources. The third section provides a step-by-step process for developing a health education program evaluation plan. Appendix A contains 16 worksheets which, once completed, represent a health education program plan. Appendix B provides samples of completed worksheets--one set addressing the goal of reducing the infant death rate and one set on reducing sexually transmitted diseases. A glossary is also included.
