  • Description:
    The "Surgeon General's Workshop on Health Promotion and Aging" met in Washington, D.C., in March 1988 to help define unmet health promotion needs for the aging. Cosponsored by the Administration on Aging, the Public Health Service*, the Brookdale Foundation, and the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, the workshop provided the health professional community with recommendations and proposals for health promotion activities that directly address the needs of the elderly.

    The workshop emphasized preventive health services, medications, dental health, injury prevention, mental health, alcohol, smoking cessation, nutrition, and physical fitness and exercise. These topics were selected because 1) scientific information is sufficient to identify actions necessary to make positive impacts, 2) constituencies are available to implement recommendations, and 3) substantial interest in the topic areas exists. Experts were commissioned to produce papers on these nine topics (3), and working groups at the workshop used these background papers in their deliberations. The resulting 365 recommendations (4) were organized by topic under the general headings of education and training, research, service, and policy.
