Health Promoting Hospital
University Hospital in Motol is one of the first hospitals in Czech Republic who integrated in 2003 into the international program “Health Promoting Hospitals”. In reality this means that hospitals implement principles of health support declared by WHO.
In terms of the program’s five standards of health support have been created concentrating on field of judging patient’s needs, informing patients, cooperation between unions and continuity of provided care, support of healthy environment and a field of control.
The judging of the effectiveness and fulfilment of standards is based on measurable criteria in form of self-assessment. The results of the self-assessment are used to determine corrective measures. Indivisible part of health promotion is monitoring consequences of corrective actions (i.e. increasing accessibility of informational and educational materials will strengthen participation of patients on support of their own health; final effect will be discovered by patient’s contentment survey).
Program Health Promoting Hospital includes complex issues of health support. The projects target patients as well as health care workers.
Following projects still continue this year:
