In planning a cancer education intervention, I. .

In planning a cancer education intervention, I have minor interest in assessing cancer prevention knowledge, but am much more interested in behavior. I would like to have measures of cancer prevention behaviors that capture the wide range of risk/protective factors. For example: Smoking, tobacco use, (+ second-hand smoke exposure). Here social determinants of health provide some insight into why instructions for behavior change are limited. Sometimes the prescribed behavior change doesn’t makes sense or isn’t possible in some social contexts.

The social determinants of health are the economic and social conditions that influence individual and group differences in health status. They are the health promoting factors found in one's living and working conditions (such as the distribution of income, wealth, influence, and power), rather than individual risk factors (such as behavioral risk factors or genetics) that influence the risk for a disease, or vulnerability to disease or injury.

Both explanatory theories and change theories are rooted in an understanding of the social determinants of health and health behavior. Many social, cultural, and economic factors contribute to the development, maintenance, and change of health behavior patterns

Both explanatory theories and change theories are rooted in an understanding of the social determinants of health and health behavior. Many social, cultural, and economic factors contribute to the development, maintenance, and change of health behavior patterns.

Determinants of health reach beyond the boundaries of traditional health care and public health sectors; sectors such as education, housing, transportation, agriculture, and environment can be important allies in improving population health. Policies at the local, State, and Federal level affect individual and population health.
