Abstract

Health promotion is a key role for healthcare professionals. It is based on effective collaboration between the healthcare professional and the public. Healthcare education has the challenge of future-proofing its curricula to meet the challenges laid out in health promotion strategies. However, engaging students in health promotion has traditionally been challenging within the delivery of an academic and largely theoretical module.

This paper provides a practice example of an initiative in which partnerships between students, academic staff and community partners are key to the effective delivery of a health promotion module within a pre-registration healthcare programme.

The partnerships were developed in two stages and use a social constructivist and assets-based approach to create a shared learning journey. Working in partnership has led to positive student engagement and has been beneficial to all those involved. It has led to positive changes within the module and beyond.
