 Health Communication: A Few
Definitions
 Ten Distinguishing Ideas for Health
Communication in the 21st Century
 Health Communication in the 21st
century: Why should you care?
“The art and technique of informing,
influencing, and motivating individual,
institutional, and public audiences about
important health issues. The scope of health
communication includes disease prevention,
health promotion, health care policy, and the
business of health care as well as
Enhancement of the quality of life and health
of individuals within the community”
– Healthy People, 2010 p. 11–20; Ratzan,1994
Health communication is the scientific
development, strategic dissemination, and
critical evaluation of relevant, accurate,
accessible, and understandable health
information communicated to and from
intended audiences to advance
the health of the public.
– J.M. Bernhardt , Journal of Public Health, 2004
“The process of understanding and sharing
[health related] meanings.”
– J. Pearson and P. Nelson (1991)
“Health communication and other disciplines
‘may have some differences, but they share
a common goal: creating social change by
changing people’s attitudes, external
structures, and/or modify or eliminate
certain behaviors’”
-- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2011)
“Health communication is a multifaceted and
multidisciplinary field of research, theory, and practice. It
is concerned with reaching different populations and
groups to exchange health-related information, ideas,
and methods in order to influence, engage, empower,
and support individuals, communities, health care
professionals, patients, policymakers, organizations,
special groups and the public, so that they will
champion, introduce, adopt, or sustain a health or social
behavior, practice, or policy that will ultimately improve
individual, community, and public health outcomes.”
– R.Schiavo (2013)

 Mirror how people talk about health and illness in
real life settings
 Resonance effect – “I heard it from many places”
 Multiple groups and stakeholders are engaged in
the same health issue = multiple group-specific
approaches to communication that may rely on
different areas/media
 Cost-effectiveness
 Increased reach among key groups and
stakeholders
 Increased ability to recruit and engage multiple
partners
 Only comprehensive programs can achieve
sustainable results
Communication operates in a complex environment, so
integration of multiple areas and media is key to effectiveness

 Beyond:
› Just participatory audience research, focus groups,
etc.
› Providing information
› Sender-receiver or top down approaches
 Effectively fostering ownership of health and social
issues among communities, key groups and
populations
 Participatory planning/community engagement in
all phases of health communication planning,
implementation and evaluation
 Key to sustainability of all interventions and related
behavioral, social and organizational results

 Don’t produce any workshop, video,
brochure, or social media site before
establishing a sound communication
strategy
 Strategy = the “how” we achieve outcomes
and communication objectives
 Long-term process for partnership and
participation based on two-way dialogue
within all phases
 Beyond messages and media channels
“Communication goes beyond the delivery of a
simple message or slogan to encompass the full
range of ways in which people individually and
collectively convey meaning. Among the powerful
tools employed by SBCC [Social and Behavioral
Change Communication] programs are mass
media, community-level activities, interpersonal
communication, information and communication
technologies, and new media.”
~ Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3), a USAID-funded project based
at the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for Communication
Programs

 A concept health communication borrows
from commercial and social marketing
 Inform policies/budget allocations for
health communication interventions
 Strongly connected to rigorous program
evaluation
 Need to strengthen cost-effectiveness
research
 Cost-benefit research can also support the
importance of communication interventions
 Capacity building key to all efforts
 The fun part!!!
 Creativity is great but needs to address
specific strategic needs
 Refrain from creating a mix of
communications vs. a communication
mix
 Moving away from the one-message = one
behavior approach to
Multiple audience- and media-specific
messages = multiple audience-specific
health and social behaviors
 Messages and activities tied together with
culturally-friendly channels with highest
reach

People continue to talk about health and illness in a
variety of settings, venues, and across different media

•“Showing instead of telling” is an old key mantra
of health communication
•Start your story thinking of “once upon a time…”
Make it personal and relevant to others!

The human brain processes visual information

Ref: Parkinson, M. 2012
 Communication as a relationship business
 Good relationships = Shared meanings
 Strategies to develop and manage
successful multisectoral partnerships = an
essential communication competency
 Start early to involve potential
partners/key stakeholders/communities
 What do you want people to do?
 What happens between communication and health
or social behavior?
 e.g., awareness, attention, perceived risk/relevance, knowledge,
dealing with and addressing multiple obstacles/existing social
norms, behavior intention, perceived social support by multiple
groups /levels of society, behavior readiness and adoption,
behavior maintenance (in one’s lifestyle), wanting to become an
ambassador/engage others, etc. SUSTAINABLE
BEHAVIORAL AND SOCIAL RESULTS
 Many social, economic and environmental determinants
of health affect intermediate steps and behavior among
key groups and stakeholders
We are in the new era of BEHAVIORAL AND
SOCIAL IMPACT COMMUNICATION
Still don’t understand health
systems and its many
complementary elements and
participant groups?
 Watch what it takes to
make Maya cry in a World
Bank video, Health Systems
Creates Healthy Futures
 Systems are made of
people who can influence
social determinants of
health

 Did these populations participate in the
health communication process?
 Did we engage them via community
dialogue, interpersonal communication,
participatory planning, interactive media,
or other community and social
engagement processes?
 Did the intervention had an impact among
vulnerable and underserved groups? Did it
help advance health equity?
Health communication theory and practice influences
and is influenced by the key issues of our times
 Health disparities
 Patient and community empowerment
 The rise of chronic diseases
 Limits of preventive medicine and behavior
 A mobile, on-demand, and audience-
driven communication environment
 Low health literacy
 Impact of managed care and other cost –
cutting interventions
 Reemergence of communicable
diseases
 Worldwide urbanization
 The threat of bioterrorism
 International access to essential drugs
 Global health workers brain drain and
other capacity-building needs in
developing countries
 Global demographic landscape reveals
myriad of cities and towns
 World urban population is expected nearly to
double by 2050
› 6.4 billion people expected to live in cities in 2050
 Long list of potential urban hazards
 Disproportionate inequalities among large
groups of city dwellers
› Within and between urban areas
› Significant numbers of early death and debilitating
diseases
› Health inequalities reflect larger social inequalities
Multisectoral partnerships and multidisciplinary health
communication teams are needed in order to address
urban health issues (and similar issues in other settings)

  • 1. Copyrights © Renata Schiavo, 2013, 2014
  • 2. Renata Schiavo/About Me Founding President, Health Equity Initiative Senior Lecturer, Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Communication in Healthcare: Strategies, Media and Engagement in Global Health Founder and Principal, Strategic Communication ResourcesSM Author, Health Communication: From Theory to Practice Proud NYAM Fellow 
  • 3.  Making a difference in people’s health and lives  Tackling health disparities/helping promote health equity  Fostering conversations and interventions that help put the public back in public health  Commitment to social innovation  Developing global strategies that support local solutions  Encouraging participation and people’s ownership of health and social issues/ solutions
  • 4.  Health Communication: A Few Definitions  Ten Distinguishing Ideas for Health Communication in the 21st Century  Health Communication in the 21st century: Why should you care?
  • 5. “The art and technique of informing, influencing, and motivating individual, institutional, and public audiences about important health issues. The scope of health communication includes disease prevention, health promotion, health care policy, and the business of health care as well as Enhancement of the quality of life and health of individuals within the community” – Healthy People, 2010 p. 11–20; Ratzan,1994
  • 6. Health communication is the scientific development, strategic dissemination, and critical evaluation of relevant, accurate, accessible, and understandable health information communicated to and from intended audiences to advance the health of the public. – J.M. Bernhardt , Journal of Public Health, 2004
  • 7. “The process of understanding and sharing [health related] meanings.” – J. Pearson and P. Nelson (1991) “Health communication and other disciplines ‘may have some differences, but they share a common goal: creating social change by changing people’s attitudes, external structures, and/or modify or eliminate certain behaviors’” -- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2011)
  • 8. “Health communication is a multifaceted and multidisciplinary field of research, theory, and practice. It is concerned with reaching different populations and groups to exchange health-related information, ideas, and methods in order to influence, engage, empower, and support individuals, communities, health care professionals, patients, policymakers, organizations, special groups and the public, so that they will champion, introduce, adopt, or sustain a health or social behavior, practice, or policy that will ultimately improve individual, community, and public health outcomes.” – R.Schiavo (2013)
  • 9.  Interpersonal Communication › Provider–patient communication › Personal selling and counseling › Community dialogue (interpersonal communication at scale)  Mass Media and New Media Communication, and Public Relations  Community Mobilization and Citizen Engagement  Professional Medical Communications  Constituency Relations which lead to Strategic Partnerships in Health Communication  Policy Communication and Public Advocacy Schiavo, R. Health Communication: From Theory to Practice, San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, Second Edition, 2013. All rights reserved.

  • 11.  Mirror how people talk about health and illness in real life settings  Resonance effect – “I heard it from many places”  Multiple groups and stakeholders are engaged in the same health issue = multiple group-specific approaches to communication that may rely on different areas/media  Cost-effectiveness  Increased reach among key groups and stakeholders  Increased ability to recruit and engage multiple partners  Only comprehensive programs can achieve sustainable results
  • 12. Communication operates in a complex environment, so integration of multiple areas and media is key to effectiveness Source: Schiavo, R. Health Communication from Theory to Practice. Second Edition. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 2013. Figure 1.1. All rights reserved. Used by permission.
  • 13. Multimedia communication (e.g., a combination of interpersonal, community, new media, mass media, professional clinical communication, etc) results in 35% percent increase in attention and public engagement
  • 14. Looking at key features that may help increase communication effectiveness in the 21st century © Boyande1971 | Dreamstime.com
  • 15.  Beyond: › Just participatory audience research, focus groups, etc. › Providing information › Sender-receiver or top down approaches  Effectively fostering ownership of health and social issues among communities, key groups and populations  Participatory planning/community engagement in all phases of health communication planning, implementation and evaluation  Key to sustainability of all interventions and related behavioral, social and organizational results
  • 16.  Communication for Development (C4D) http://www.unicef.org/cbsc/  Communication for Behavioral Impact (COMBI) http://www.who.int/ihr/publications/combi_toolkit_outbrea ks/en/ http://www.comminit.com/combi/category/sites/global/c ombi/  Other experiences and resources on The Communication Initiative (CI) Network http://www.comminit.com/global/search/apachesolr_sear ch/community%20health%20workers?filters=tid:36

  • 21.  Don’t produce any workshop, video, brochure, or social media site before establishing a sound communication strategy  Strategy = the “how” we achieve outcomes and communication objectives  Long-term process for partnership and participation based on two-way dialogue within all phases  Beyond messages and media channels
  • 22. “Communication goes beyond the delivery of a simple message or slogan to encompass the full range of ways in which people individually and collectively convey meaning. Among the powerful tools employed by SBCC [Social and Behavioral Change Communication] programs are mass media, community-level activities, interpersonal communication, information and communication technologies, and new media.” ~ Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3), a USAID-funded project based at the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for Communication Programs Schiavo, R.

  • 24.  A concept health communication borrows from commercial and social marketing  Inform policies/budget allocations for health communication interventions  Strongly connected to rigorous program evaluation  Need to strengthen cost-effectiveness research  Cost-benefit research can also support the importance of communication interventions  Capacity building key to all efforts
  • 25.  The fun part!!!  Creativity is great but needs to address specific strategic needs  Refrain from creating a mix of communications vs. a communication mix
  • 26.  Moving away from the one-message = one behavior approach to Multiple audience- and media-specific messages = multiple audience-specific health and social behaviors  Messages and activities tied together with culturally-friendly channels with highest reach

  • 30. The human brain processes visual information 60,000 faster than other types of information Ref: Parkinson, M. 2012
  • 31.  Communication as a relationship business  Good relationships = Shared meanings  Strategies to develop and manage successful multisectoral partnerships = an essential communication competency  Start early to involve potential partners/key stakeholders/communities
  • 32.  What do you want people to do?  What happens between communication and health or social behavior?  e.g., awareness, attention, perceived risk/relevance, knowledge, dealing with and addressing multiple obstacles/existing social norms, behavior intention, perceived social support by multiple groups /levels of society, behavior readiness and adoption, behavior maintenance (in one’s lifestyle), wanting to become an ambassador/engage others, etc. SUSTAINABLE BEHAVIORAL AND SOCIAL RESULTS  Many social, economic and environmental determinants of health affect intermediate steps and behavior among key groups and stakeholders We are in the new era of BEHAVIORAL AND SOCIAL IMPACT COMMUNICATION
  • 33. Still don’t understand health systems and its many complementary elements and participant groups?  Watch what it takes to make Maya cry in a World Bank video, Health Systems Creates Healthy Futures  Systems are made of people who can influence social determinants of health https://www.youtube.com/watch?v =PFVCNUOM5Us Source: World Bank, Sept. 2011 and 2013
  • 34.  Did these populations participate in the health communication process?  Did we engage them via community dialogue, interpersonal communication, participatory planning, interactive media, or other community and social engagement processes?  Did the intervention had an impact among vulnerable and underserved groups? Did it help advance health equity?
