Health education in France: Hospital experience on cardiovascular patients in Avignon

Abstract : Although France has not used the Korelia evidence and conclusions, cardiovascular patients could be more important in France than in others countries of the European Community. Based on the North Korelia project, Puska model and local hospital project and volun- teers, we try to get French evi- dence of health education effec- tiveness, and to develop Health Promoting Hospitals. Medical and administrative teams have defined their hospital project with goals of quality as defined by the national accreditation agency (ANAES). With university profes- sors, they designed goals and proj- ects in a 200 patient prospective randomised study comparing two preventive systems. The first is based only on an infor- mation model. The second works on educational models of interac- tivity and personalised programs and an auto-evaluation tool. The medical evaluation system for car- dio vascular risk patients is used throughout the course of the action. We hope to get our first results on morbidity and main risk factors in a few months. Our work could be financed by the Health Promoting Hospitals An International Network Initiated by the WHO Regional Office for Europe French National Evaluation and Accreditation Health Agency in 2002 and 2003, because it is an important link between health pro- moting policy, health quality and contracting policies in France.
