1. Introduction

On the 4th of April 2003 we run a health promotion fair with the topic ‘Healthy Lifestyle’. The venue was the Forum of the Student’s Union on the campus of the Middlesex University Enfield. We chose this topic to strengthen student’s, support staff’s and lecturer’s awareness of the dangerous risk factors: ‘physical inactivity’, ‘high blood pressure’ and ‘poor nutrition’. These risk factors all include the risk of getting diseases like Coronary Heart Disease or stroke. We offered our customers: counselling, written information material, blood pressure measurement, freebies and a lot of other things. Now, this work provides a critical appraisal of the health fair planning process, of the teamwork and group dynamics, the delivery of the Health Fair itself and the evaluation of this event. For the better understanding it is necessary to give some background information about: ‘What is health promotion?’, ‘What is a health fair?’, ‘What is a health fair intending to achieve?’ and why did we chose this topic and this target group.

2. Definitions

2.1. Health Promotion

Health promotion is the process of enabling people to exert control over the determinants of health and to improve their health. Therefore, health promotion tries to address the major health challenges faced by the nations, e.g. the U.K. addresses the following priorities in the national strategy ‘Saving Lives: Our Healthier Nation’: cancer, Coronary Heart Disease, accidents and mental illness (OHN 2003). Health promotion also wants people to take action – it is done by, with and for people either as individuals or as groups. It means strengthening skills and capabilities of individuals to take action and capacity of groups to act collectively. Health promotion’s intention is to include a combination of strategies – also strategies which intend to create supportive environments for health and equitable chances for everybody which allow the population to stay healthy, e.g. backed by healthy public policy. Therefore a reorientation of the health services is needed towards health promotion.

Health promotion will include:

1) actions directed at determinants of health that are outside the immediate control of individuals. This includes social, economic and environmental conditions.
2) determinants within the more immediate control of individuals, including individual health behaviours.

(Health Protection Agency for Northern Ireland 2003)

2.2. Objectives Of A Health Fair

In this context one possibility of health promotion to prevent people from getting a disease or to promote health is to run a health fair that concentrates on determinants within the more immediate control of individuals and the target is to make the people think and if possible to make people change a special unhealthy behaviour. A health fair is an event and tries to:

- Increase health awareness by providing health screenings, activities, materials, demonstrations, and information;
- Increase awareness of local, state, and national health services and resources;
- Motivate participants to make positive health behaviour changes;
- Teach self-care practices;
- Identify topics and participants for future health programs

(Texas Cooperative Extension 2002)

Now that the most important terms are explained this work proceeds with the planning of our Health Fair.

3. Planning The Health Fair

3.1. Selected Topic Of Our Health Fair

Our Health Fair had the topic ‘Healthy Lifestyle’. However, this topic includes a wide range of subordinated topics. That’s why we decided to concentrate on the risk factors: high blood pressure, poor nutrition and low physical activity which all include the risk of getting Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) or stroke. We also decided to provide information about these two diseases. CHD death rates were decreasing since the seventies and also stroke death rates did but in 2001 both rates started increasing again with the exception of female CHD death rates – they are still decreasing. (DoH 2002a and 2002b, Appendix table 1 and 2). The other fact is that both are still two of the nation’s main killers and therefore especially targeted by the government’s strategy ‘Saving Lives: Our Healthier Nation’ (Official Documents Website 1999). On that score we decided to choose this topic.

3.2. Selected Target Group And Place Of Our Health Fair

All people of our team were students from the Middlesex University Enfield and we were supposed to run the fair on the campus. Therefore it seemed to be the most logical idea to concentrate on the target groups: students, lecturers and support staff on the campus, however our main target group was the group of students. All ages, both sexes, all ethnic groups and social classes were taken into account.

3.3. Our Main Target Group In Relation To The Targeted Diseases

CHD and stroke is also a danger for younger people: “Stroke is commonly perceived as an affliction of old age but it can affect anyone, of any age, at any time … In the UK each year over 10,000 people of working age have a stroke –nearly 30 every day.” (Stroke Association 2002). In addition to that it is proved that the development of a disease like CHD and stroke is creeping – this fact concerns everybody – even or especially younger people. Probably the disease process hasn’t started already and the health fair can help them to reduce risk factors and therefore to prevent a disease.

3.4. Process Of Planning Our Health Fair

Based on a ‘Planning and Evaluating Health Promotion Model’ from Ewles, L. and Simnett, I. (2003, p.84) this part will look critically on our process of planning. This plan is nonrigid, that means that it is possible to skip one point and come to it later. Normally, however, a plan starts with:

3.4.1. Identifying Needs And Priorities

Already at the first meeting the team decided to promote ‘Healthier Lifestyle’ after we discussed several other topics by brainstorming. The ultimate decision on the risk factors high blood pressure, poor nutrition, low physical activity and on the two diseases CHD and stroke was made during the second meeting. This topic and the risk factors on which we wanted to do health promotion were regarded as very valuable and up to date. The agreement on them was concordantly.

3.4.2. Setting Aims And Objectives

A big problem was that we hadn’t clear defined aims or objectives during the planning process and we never discussed any. It wasn’t clear ‘What do we want to achieve exactly?’ Our aims were unuttered and that’s why the next step in the process wasn’t very easy.

3.4.3. Decision On The Best Way To Achieve The Aims

We talked about methods like hanging-up posters, proffer talks, counselling, providing written material and advice, preparing a PowerPoint Presentation with useful information and proffering blood pressure measurement and we collected all this ideas and started working on them. But we didn’t recognise that all these points are related to clear aims like: 1) raising health awareness, 2) improving knowledge, self empowering and 3) changing attitudes and behaviours of the customers (Ewles, L., Simnett, I. 2003 p.91).

3.4.4. Identification Of Resources

The identification of resources can be divided into eight parts:

1) The Team

- Knowledge: all students were already taking part in other health related modules, so they already had some background information about health issues. Additionally, we had four nurses in our team (including me) with a wide ranged knowledge about risk factors and diseases.
- Skills: some of us had skills in computer application, had a artistic disposition, skills in project management, procurement of written material etc.
- Time: all of us invested a lot of time: eight meetings (1-1,5h each) and free time.
- All of us provided a lot of enthusiasm and energy.

2) My Own Person

- Knowledge: I am a nurse with a big health related knowledge. So the idea arose that I and the other nurses could measure and assess people’s blood pressure during the fair or could give detailed information and advice about diseases and risk factors.
- Skills: I provided skills in computer application. We used these skills for: preparing a Microsoft® PowerPoint Presentation (Appendix: Microsoft® PowerPoint Presentation), preparing an email for our advertisement (Appendix: Advertisement Email For The Middlesex Students) and graphic design (Appendix: Logo Of Our Health Fair) and also for a special evaluation paper.

3) Other People

- Student’s Forum Manager: at him we could book the room, he obtained chairs, tables, movable walls and put them to the right place in consideration of our prepared key plan, contact person in relation to PowerPoint Presentation related and other technical issues.
- Lecturer: provided theoretical framework, clever advice during the entire process of planning and also during the Health Fair and the following evaluation.
- The other group: Our module was divided into two parts. The other group had another topic, but we were able to compare our work and to exchange information.

4) Client Group

The customers of the Health Fair also provided some useful experiences. They were also a good resource because they could help to evaluate our Fair and they provided some good incentives. But unfortunately, their statements weren’t reflected in the evaluation process.

5) Existing Policies And Plans

It could have been useful to back our work with already existing policies and activities which try to promote healthier lifestyle. We didn’t look if our work fits probably into an existing national strategy. But it fits looking at e.g. all the different National Service Frameworks (NSF) provided by the Department of Health. NSF’s are service models and standards for the most important diseases. These are clear instructions which have to be implemented in local health improvement plans e.g. instructions how to tackle unhealthy lifestyle e.g. physical inactivity, poor nutrition etc. (DoH, 2002c)

6) Existing Facilities And Services

We had a big deficiency in considering local running programmes which already work on improving people’s lifestyle, e.g. leisure centres with physical activity programmes, courses for healthier cooking, local health information centres. It would have been a good idea to refer our customers to those services. We only planned (in case of a high blood pressure) to refer to the Nursing Health Advisor of the University or to a general practitioner.

7) Material Resources

a) Leaflets And Posters

Those were collected by everyone from different agencies and were presented and sorted out by the entire group – sometimes but not always in consideration of the question: ‘Are all ages, both sexes, all ethnic groups and social classes taken into account.?’ One team member had contact with an agency that provides a wide range of useful leaflets and posters. Another team member produced some cards with useful recipes for healthy eating. Among others we used booklets and leaflets from the ‘British Heart Foundation’ (1998, 1999a, 1999b, 2000, 2001a, 2001b), ‘Health Promotion England’ (2000) and ‘The Flora Project – leaflet’ (1999).

b) Different Agencies And Stores

Some team members tried to get some freebies (e.g. fruits) for our Health Fair from local superstores, but they didn’t get them. One team member could obtain some free orange juice, pens and special salt (1/3 less sodium) from a company.

c) Our Computers/Printers

- Two of our team members designed the logo and advertisements posters and flyers on their computers
- Another member printed out those.
- The communication between the members out of meeting times was sustained by email.

d) Other Material Resources

Blood pressure devices/model of a heart/poster with structure of a heart were borrowed from the training lab for nurses (on campus).

e) My Contribution

- I designed the PowerPoint Presentation (PPP) with two other members. Therefore I used my laptop to create it and to show it during the Fair.
- I was in contact with the Student’s Forum Manager and with technicians because I planned to show the PPP via the video projector under the ceiling.
- On my laptop I also designed our advertisement email and a special evaluation paper.
- To capture the important moments of the Fair I took several photos with my digital camera.

8) Budgeting

First, we intended to try to get all material (e.g. written, fruits, pens) from companies and agencies for free. Later during the second last meeting before the Fair we unfortunately had to decide to finance those things on our own. Therefore we collected 5£ from everyone (about 60£ in total) and we bought fruits, balloons, pens, one video cable and t-Shirts for the team.

3.4.5. Plan Evaluation Methods

To answer the questions ‘What has been achieved?’, ‘How has is it been achieved?’, ‘What was good?’, ‘What was bad?’ and ‘What could be done better next time?’ we thought out different methods:

- a general evaluation questionnaire (Appendix: Evaluation Form 1) that was given to most of our customers with general questions about their satisfaction in relation to the Fair.
- a special evaluation paper filled out by us who measured the blood pressure and gave advice (Appendix: Evaluation Form 2): we looked at: ‘What do customers ask? For special disease related information?’ and ‘Who are the customers? Staff? Students?’ ‘What do they ask?’ and ‘How do they behave?’.
- I took photos from the Health Fair. (Appendix: Photos From Our Health Fair)
- We had an evaluation meeting after the Fair.
- We counted all leaflets before and after the Fair

3.4.6. Marketing Management

We weren’t very concerned about marketing and we didn’t have a concept but probably unknowingly we did the right thing: for our target group we provided our services timed and the Fair was easily to access for everyone of the university. One week before the Fair we put posters and flyers everywhere in the university and we used an email and verbal propaganda to advertise our Fair. We tried to work qualitatively on a high level and we all were friendly to our customers. The Health Fair was run in a familiar environment – that made it easier for the customers to participate and we provided more or less good and well sorted information (Ewles, L. and Simnett, I. 2003, p.107).

3.4.7. Setting An Action Plan

It would have been a good idea to have an action plan – but we hadn’t one. Normally, an action plan could help to identify tasks, responsible persons, resources which will be used, a timescale and means of evaluation (Naidoo J. & Wills, J. 2002, p.360). The use of a planning model like the ‘Gantt chart’ (Naidoo, J. & Wills, J. 2002, p. 355) was suggested shortly before the Fair and wasn’t put into practice.

3.4.8. General Appraisal Of The Planning Process

We had many difficulties and we forgot many things. Looking at some of the points above it seems to be clear why there was no clear structure of the project, no clear distribution of tasks or a better use of resources. The missing timescale explains why we felt to be under deadline pressure and the missing action plan explains why it was never clear who was responsible for what. The total planning process of our group seemed being unstructured and difficult all the time. But we didn’t only have planning problems, also the teamwork and the group dynamics were difficult at times.

3.5. Teamwork and group dynamics

At the beginning the group tried to get to know each other – to come closer. We were in the stage of ‘Forming’ (VCAA 2003) and everybody behaved cautiously. But already at this stage the oldest member tried to push the group forward and to lead the group. The group accepted that tacitly. First discussions started but only between a few members. During the next meeting the group came to the next stage: ‘Storming’ - more people were involved in different discussions and different experiences came together. With time the role of each member became clearer at this stage. Then it became clear that our leading person had no real experiences in leading a group. She wasn’t able to coordinate, listen carefully, delegate work, respond to new ideas or to overlook the whole ‘picture’. The group tolerated this fact and she proceeded. We got stuck at the stage of ‘Norming’ - everybody was gathering material, we sorted out, new material was brought in, we discussed but there was no real progress. The only made progress could be seen in the self-directed work of the individuals, and the work of each one was very good. A simple example: until the end of the planning process we discussed on all the different leaflets and posters, but also important issues like ‘booking the room’ or ‘Who makes what during the Fair?’ were recognised and discussed at the end of the planning process. I had the impression that there were leader characters in our team, but either they didn’t take over the leadership because they felt disadvantaged linguistically or they didn’t feel strong enough to interfere when the problems had already arisen. It is also possible that the group without leadership would have better worked. In spite of the fact that the Fair was successful our group never reached the stage of optimum teamwork and activity. Nevertheless, most of us were sad when the Fair was over and the module ended.

My Role in the Team

First, I felt disadvantaged because of the language. It is difficult to plan a health fair as non-native speaker in a foreign country. Furthermore, I had no experiences in planning such an event. During the meetings I behaved more like a monitor evaluator (Meredith Belbin, R. 2002, p.22). I always work sober, strategic and discerning and I see all options but I have problems to pass my ideas on to the group and I often behave too critical. Nevertheless, I was able to contribute well because I made several things on my own and was able to implement them into the Fair.

4. Day of the Health Fair – 4th April 2003

4.1. Preparations

Our team met at 8:30am in the Student’s Forum. All the tables, chairs and movable walls were already placed in front of the stage. We took some corrective action and started then to tack all the posters, to blow up the balloons, to put all the leaflets (Appendix: Booklets and Leaflets) on the tables and we put on our white t-shirts and the name plates. Everything went off unproblematic. Our stand was parted into three different topics: physical activity, nutrition and blood pressure. The last one was mine and that’s why I am only able to explain precisely what we’ve done and what happened there because we all were very busy with our partitioned scopes. The first problem during the preparations was that the technician of the Forum didn’t come. So I wasn’t able to use the video projector. Then I noticed that the bought video cable doesn’t suit to the video-out socket of my laptop. Therefore I drove immediately to an electronic store but I wasn’t able to get the right cable. That’s why we were forced to show the PowerPoint Presentation on the laptop screen. I put it on the stage behind our table so that everyone could see the screen. But all the other equipment at the ‘Blood Pressure Table’ was complete and it worked. The whole team was able to get ready in time and the Health Fair started at 10am.

4.2. The Running Fair

It was my job to keep the PowerPoint Presentation running and to ask the Forum’s customers if they want their blood pressure and pulse measured. After the measuring I filled in a little sheet (Appendix: Blood Pressure Check Notice For The Customers) with the values, date and some explanations to the measuring and then I gave it to the customer. I never measured a high blood pressure so I hadn’t to interfere at any time. Additionally, I referred to all the written material on the table if people seemed being interested in further information. After the customer had gone I filled in our special evaluation form (Appendix: Evaluation Form 2). The other two groups ‘physical activity’ and ‘nutrition’ dealt with the other evaluation form (Appendix: Evaluation Form 1). I didn’t expect that so much people (young and older people, students and staff) would come to our ‘blood pressure table’ without being asked to take part. I’ve never made such an experience in Germany. Most were interested in the written material, freebies and in the measuring, they were open-minded and very communicative. It was fun to have discussions with them and to give them advice. The process of our Fair was trouble-free and it seemed to be the same at the other two tables of our stand.

4.3. Some Unexpected Events

- An older, frail woman (she had nothing to do with the University) came to our table and asked for special advice. She had already got Coronary Heart Disease and would like to get some suitable diet information. I didn’t feel competent enough at this moment. I wasn’t sure if I have the right (by law) to give advice in case of an already established disease. We all agreed that it would be the best idea to refer to her GP. I didn’t feel happy at this moment because she had invested so much time to get here but I could offer her some helpful leaflets and some general counsels.
- We had one extensive discussion with a person from the staff who informed us about his high cholesterol and he didn’t believe in any effect if he would try to reduce his cholesterol intake and to consider some diet and nutrition rules. We tried everything but he was unpersuadable - that was a bad experience for me.
- One of our team members had high blood pressure – probably a long time before because of his overweight. We controlled the values several times and he informed us that he had already made an appointment with his GP in the evening.

The Fair ended in time at 2pm and the dismantling was done very fast. During the dismantling still people came and asked for measuring, leaflets and freebies. After we had helped them we cleaned the Forum thoroughly and left it. We went to the Roberts Building and had our evaluation meeting (Appendix: Photos From Our Health Fair, Photo 18 and 19).

5. Evaluation

5.1. In General

First of all, we didn’t discuss appropriately before the Fair what we want to evaluate and how we want to do it. Probably, we weren’t able to because we set no clear targets or objectives and that’s why we weren’t able to decide what we should measure: educational outcome, outcome on empowerment or behaviour change (Naidoo J. & Wills, J. 2002, p.91-101) or only the satisfaction with the Fair? That’s why the evaluation forms seem to be unstructured and not target orientated.

We had a mixture of everything. We got some information from our customers by asking, observing and discussing with them but even at the evaluation meeting after the fair we didn’t use the collected information appropriately to evaluate our Health Fair.

5.2. Some Facts And Outcomes

- Over 500 leaflets were given to the customers
- 180-200 people attended the Fair; 60 people got blood pressure measured
- freebies were all given away

5.3. Evaluation Form 1

(Appendix: Evaluation Form 1)

- 44 people filled in the form
- 21 found that the presentation of the Health Fair was excellent, the rest found it very good or good.
- Most found the Fair informative. Only three people said: not very.
- Nobody was unsatisfied with the helpfulness of the team.
- Everybody enjoyed being at the Health Fair.
- Answers to the question: What was good?: “information, freebies, everyone of the team gave good response”.
- Suggestions for improvement: “more encouragement from ALL staff not just some, more interaction/information, demonstrate cooking, more freebies, more food”.
- Everybody said that it was a good idea to run such a Health Fair.

5.4. Evaluation Form 2

(see also results in the Appendix: Evaluation Form 2)

Our assumption that people would ask special health and detailed blood pressure related questions was confirmed.

Most Important Findings

- Nearly 50% asked what a normal blood pressure is.
- 35 students and 17 of the staff got their blood pressure measured.
- We asked 16 people if they would like to take part.
- Nobody said anything to the PowerPoint Presentation.

Most other points of our form weren’t very convincing.

5.5. Reflection Of The Fair

5.5.1. Good Aspects

The Fair run better than expected – regarding the uncompleted and unstructured preparation. May be that we made unknowingly some good work on the most important issues during the planning process. Furthermore, we had no real problems during the Fair. The Fair was accepted from everybody, it was fun and we had a good team spirit that day.

An interesting point is that some customers assumed that we were professionals from outside. By the way, I’m a nurse but one customer called me a doctor.

5.5.2. Improvements For The Next Time

- The problems with the PowerPoint Presentation were avoidable. Better and earlier arrangements may help the next time.
- The music in the Forum was a tad noisy. That was bad because of the conversations between us and our customers.
- The Evaluation Form 2 was the right approach, but it was too complicate to fill it in and to minister to the customers. The structuring and the content of our form was worthy of improvement and also the first evaluation form. It only aimed at satisfaction affairs and wasn’t really an usable evaluation sheet.
- Obviously, the advertisement email wasn’t forwarded to the students of the University. We still don’t know what went wrong.

5.5.3. My Own Participation And Role As A Member

I was able to participate well. In spite of the fact that I’m a foreigner I was accepted and my nationality was never a subject of any discussion with the customers. Nevertheless, I think that I could have been involved more in the whole process of planning and during the Fair. But I hesitated too long because of linguistic anxieties.

Regarding my job of measuring customer’s blood pressure I can allege that I did my job very well and competent, however, as already mentioned, regarding the PowerPoint Presentation I could have done my job better.

6. Conclusion

Altogether, our group had a lot of problems in planning and evaluating the Health Fair: we had no clear aims and objectives, no organised resource management, we had budgeting problems, no marketing concept and no action plan. In addition to that we had also group-dynamic problems. Next time it would be probably better to look more intensively at planning process theories – that prevents such problems in any case. It is also a good idea to talk free about group and leading roles and it is better not to hesitate to say something if it is obviously that the teamwork isn’t functioning well. Probably, then it is the best idea to contemplate a change in the role allocation.

In principle the Health Fair was a success, because our target group got some useful information by visiting our Fair and most of them found it good. The Fair ‘Healthy Lifestyle’ had an effect on the people, I think. I have to admit though that we were in luck because there were no real problems during the Fair – but it could have been the opposite.

Altogether it was a good experience for me and it was a good teaching for my life, especially it is a good experience for my later working life. It was fun to plan and to deliver the Health Fair together with all the other team members. We made a lot of mistakes but that doesn’t really matter because one way to learn is: doing mistakes and prevent them the next time.

Microsoft® PowerPoint Presentation

The PowerPoint Presentation was created by me and two of my study colleagues. In a visual way (pictures and sentences fading in) it showed some risk factors, their consequences, some statistical information and information about: ‘What can be done to prevent CHD or stroke?’. The presentation was running during the whole time of the fair and one presentation took about 3 minutes. It could be seen on the screen of my laptop which was standing on the stage behind us. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to play the presentation via the video projector which is installed under the ceiling of the Student’s Forum. The first problem was that the staff of the Student’s Forum was too late, and the second problem was that we hadn’t bought the right video cable for the connection between the laptop and the projector.
