  • » Talking about the Social Determinants of Health
    well as policymakers when discussing just how people see health differences throughout the U S It turns out that political perspectives impact how people perceive and talk about health as found by research from Olson Zaltman Associates who helped the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in their efforts to dissect people s thoughts on health By further engaging with Western Strategies a public opinion messaging research group RWJF surveyed 3 000 Americans over four years and was able to develop language and marketing strategies that effectively explain how social factors deeply contribute to our health The goal of this multi phase project was to translate the concept of social determinants and ultimately calls for action that stem from it that might otherwise sound bland or unintelligible to the lay ear even the educated ear into compelling motivating messages that not only create concern about the way things are but create hope that problems related to social determinants are solvable If your coalition or related organization needs some tips on how to talk about health disparities and what leads to them the guide is a great starting place Included in the guide are six additional ways to describe the social determinants of health depending on the audience as well as a glossary of additional terms that help people describe health disparities differently according to who is taking part in the conversation Below are the summarized takeaways from the document s Keys to Effective Messaging Americans including opinion elites do not spontaneously consider social influences on health They do however recognize social factors and see their importance when primed Americans including elites do not resonate with the language of social determinants of health but they do resonate with the core construct Messages that sway Americans including elites are values based and emotion laden not overly academic Americans consciously believe in equal opportunity to health but messages that describe disparities evoke negative reactions unless written carefully to avoid victim blaming and to emphasize the importance of people exercising personal responsibility Messages that mix traditionally conservative values e g the value of small business with traditional progressive values e g equal opportunity tend to fare better in speaking to health disparities Messaging Guide A New Way to Talk about the Social Determinants of Health Tags community empowerment engagement guide health disparities language messaging public health social determinants One thought on Talking about the Social Determinants of Health Pingback Aging Well in Kingston New York Comments are closed News and Events Peer Learning Network Spotlight The Peer Learning Network PLN is a forum for sharing experiences and lessons learned Check out the video below to hear from Kim Irwin of Health by Design in Indianapolis IN and visit the PLN and watch their mini webinar More Recognize National Health Observances with Partnering4Health Partnering4Health is focusing communication efforts on select National Health Observances each month Every Kid Healthy Week is April 25 29 Check out the grab and go packet for information resources and to learn more
