  1. What's the use of theory?

    Article - En anglais

    The barriers to the use of theory in health education practice are addressed by exposing common misperceptions of the nature and usefulness of theory.

    First, the mystique of theory is addressed through a discussion of theory development and the roots of theory in everyday experience.

    Two characteristics of theory, generalizability across settings or situations and testability, are described and linked to benefits for practice.

    Second, a guide for practitioners in applying theory to each stage of the intervention process is provided.
