One of two resources that provided much of the background for The Use of Theory in Heart Health Promotion: What it can (and cannot tell us) by Jennifer Poole. In The Use of Theory, Jennifer notes that this "was published in 1993 and put together by some of the most respected professionals in health promotion. Their document is clear, comprehensive, Canadian and relatively concise."
