Audiologists and speech-language pathologists are more likely to share knowledge and less likely to implement health strategies known to influence attitudes and create behavior change using validated health promotion approaches. This article explores four theoretical models of health education, focuses on planning for effective health education outcomes highlighted by the PRECEDE-PROCEED planning model and applies the use of theory and program planning to audiology and speech-language pathology service or program delivery.
The goal of this health communication continuing education program is to ensure that speech-language pathologists and audiologists increase their knowledge of effective health education for their patients. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
- Define and describe the science of health communication for speech-language pathologists and audiologists
- Discuss common health communication models applicable to the field of speech-language pathology and audiology
- Identify strategies that speech-language pathologists and audiologists might implement when developing or delivering interventions that require behavior change
