Ottawa Charter in relation to the Cancer Council
Transcript of Ottawa Charter in relation to the Cancer Council
Developing personal skills is about empowering the individual through education and learning new skills, enabling them to make positive choices about their health and lifestyle. In relation to the Cancer Council this is very important as it educates people about the risk factors which increase your risk of getting cancer helping the individual to reduce their exposure to these risk factors.
Reorienting Health Services
Reorienting Health Services is about taking the emphasis away from just curing a disease to preventing it. In relation to the Cancer Council, this is very important as it will decrease the current incidence rates of cancer by giving people the knowledge about the major risk factors associated to cancer, this can be achieved mainly through health promotion.
Building Healthy Public Policy
Building Healthy Public Policy is about governments working together including federal, state and local to create policies and legislation that support healthy choices and all aspects of health. This is important in relation to the Cancer Council as it reduces the rights associated to risk factors of developing cancer. This could also be achieved by government funding for events or procedures that either educate or reduce the risk of developing cancer.
Ottawa Charter in relation to the Cancer Council
Cancer is the most prevalent disease in Australia. One in every three women will devlop cancer before the age of 85 and half of all men will be diagnosed before 85. In 2015, it was predicted that almost 50,000 people in Australia would die from cancer. The cancer council's aim is to minimise the threat of cancer to Australians through prevention, treatment and support. They fund cancer research and provide information and support for all affected by cancer. Through the use of the action areas of the Ottawa Charter and the Cancer Council these stats can be reduced and people can be educated about cancer and all of its risk factors.
Creating Supportive Environments
Creating Supportive Environments is about creating an environment which is promotes an individual to make healthy lifestyle choices through making a safe, healthy and stimulating work, school and community environment. This, in relation to the Cancer Council is impotant as is creates environments which promote the individual to make healthy choices about their exposure to risk factors associated to smoking.
Strengthening Community Action
Strengthening Community Action is about the community coming together to enhance health and to work together to raise awareness for different illnesses and diseases. This, in relation to the Cancer Council is very important as it uses many events to educate people about the risk factors associated with cancer and to raise awareness about the effect of it.
Another example includes Advertisements
that deter people from smoking by showing confronting pictures of cancerous and decayed lungs due to tobacco smoking educating people about the dangers that are associated with
smoking and the formation of lung cancer.
The last example includes Advertisements which promote women to go for regular screening tests help to educate them on the reduction of chance
that a women has to developing Breast cancer later in life due to regular screening tests.
The cancer council produces many
advertisements which educate people
about the risk factors associated to
the different forms of cancer including
Skin, Breast and Lung cancer. For
example Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and
An example of this would include,
support groups for people who have,
have had or have a high risk of
developing cancer to help them get
together and talk about cancer related
Another example would include, having
confronting advertisements about cancer
in work and community environments to help them to make healthy choices about reducing their exposure to the risk factors of cancer.
An example of this would include, Relay for life which is promoted, ran and funded by the Cancer Council to educate and raise awareness to all people about the risk factors and commonality of cancer.
Another example would include, Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, which is another event held by the cancer council for the same reasons to educate and raise awareness about cancer.
Lastly, another example would be the Cancer council working with other companies to educate and raise awareness about cancer for example, Movember or the McGrath foundation.
For example, governments reducing the rights of a smoker reduces the chances of people in the community developing lung cancer. This is due to the relationship between smoking and the development of lung cancer.
Another example of this would include, Governments funding for screening programs and wards in hospitals that specialise in the treatment of cancer.
An example of this would include governments funding for screening programs and offering free tests for various forms of cancer if someone has risk factors associated to them, e.g. a family history.
Another example would include, many medical facilities such as General Practitioners and hospitals, promoting regular check-ups and reducing exposure to risk factors of cancer to patients through the use of many brochures and posters.
Lastly, the governments trying to educate children from an early age about cancer can help to prevent cancer and not have to use all their funding on curing it later on.
