Abstract

Purpose

– The purpose of this paper is to describe health promotion activities accomplished within a

project and to measure the conditions for sustainable health within the case organizations. Also, the

purpose is to test a previously developed measurement approach, which measures health-related

quality management.

Design/methodology/approach

– A health promotion project currently being carried out at eight

Swedish elementary schools has been studied. In earlier research a measurement approach was

developed to measure health-related quality management. The approach was handed out to the

co-workers at the eight different schools in the initial stage of the project. The leaders at the schools

were informed of the results of their own school and the mean value of all the eight schools. The

consistency and reliability of the statements within the approach was tested.

Findings

– A description of health promotion activities accomplished and planned within the project

can be found. The results from the measurement of the health-related quality management in the eight

schools are presented, together with the mean score of all schools. The test of the measurement

approach is presented and discussed.

Originality/value

– A description of health promotion activities can help managers and project

leaders to plan and carry out valuable health promotion activities in their striving for both sustainable

health among the co-workers and efficient organizations. This measurement approach can help

managers and project leaders to measure the effects of the health promotion activities.
