In my opinion Social Cognitive Theory is ideal to health promotion and communication. Because the theory deals with cognitive, emotional aspects, behavioral understanding and also explains how people acquire and perform behavioral patterns. On the other hand the concepts of SCT provide not only ways for behavioral research in health education and promotion but also frame work for designing, implementing and evaluating health education and promotion programmes. Candidate Number: 118 The Health Belief Model The Health Belief Model (HBM) is one of the first and broadly used theory of health behavior. (Abraham and Sheeran, 2005).It comprises six components that determine behaviour i.e. perceived susceptibility, perceived severity, perceived benefits, perceived barriers health motivation and cues to action (Christopher J. Armitage & Mark Conner 2000).
 This paradigm is useful as it enables practitioners to proactively and purposefully put into action a connected system of values and principles across the phases of a health promotion process. The principle that authorises the value of holistic health is that health incorporates interrelated dimensions of spiritual, mental, social and physical health and wellbeing.  Moreover, key values and principles the Red Lotus model includes are ensuring that needs assessment processes incorporate the perspectives of all stakeholders and prioritising work with communities that are most marginalised, vulnerable, disadvantaged

Task 2 7 / C.P6: Compare the influence of different health and safety laws or policies on health and social care practice in a selected setting There are several different health and safety laws and policies that vary between settings in health and social care aimed towards different legislations that must be followed, and have resulted in improvements in health and social care practice. It is important that these legislations are followed by service providers in order for them to promote safe practice and to fully understand their responsibilities under these legislations. Some of the legislations include the Health and Safety at Work Act etc 1974, the Data Protection Act 1998, the Care Act 2014, the Care Standards Act 2000 and the Equality Act 2010.
The HIPAA code of ethics is designed to serve several purposes with the aim of promoting high health information management practice, identify core values for the basis of the health information management mission, providing a summary of broad ethical principle that reflects the core values of the health information management (Davis & LaCour, 2014). Besides, it establishes a set of ethical principles which essential in the decision are making process. It also establishes an operational framework which guides professional behavior and responsibilities in case of conflicts of professional behaviors or when there are uncertainties in ethical behaviors. Besides, it provides ethical principles which enable the public to hold health information professionals into account, mentor practitioners who are new to the field of human information mission, values as well as ethical
Health Management Information System (HMIS) is a process of collection, processing, and reporting the relevant information to health care providers and managers for effective and efficient planning and service delivery. It is one of the critical elements of managing, in an integrated fashion, various public health programmes under the department of Health. Properly organized, implemented and used HMIS can alone contribute very significantly to improve program delivery and thus the outcome. Thus accurate, relevant and up-to-date information is essential for the health service providers /manager at all levels so that they can initiate action on the gaps in the system based on evidence and information.
Perhaps the best definition of EBP was one given by David Sackett et al. (1996) “ EBP is the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient. It means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research” (p.71). The method varies according to the particular area in which a professional works. For example, a medical practitioner might prove treatment effectiveness not only through proven trails, his knowledge, judgment and personal experience but also through the use of trustful external evidence-based resources, such as Cochrane Library, Best Evidence, Evidence –Based Medicine among others.

Task Force Project- Applying Theory Applying any behavioral theory to elevate the behaviors of health has many barriers when developing an intervention. When making decisions in regards to the main goal of the intervention, the target audience need to be kept in mind. There are several theoretical approaches that address the needs of specific behavior that need to be completely changed or modified.
