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

– 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.
– 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.
– 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.
