Abstract:
Health education is becoming more and more important approach to control various public health problems, epecially in the populations with high percent of older age groups. At the first sight this approach seems to be very easy to practice but to plan and to practice properly this approach in various target groups it is necessary to have certain knowledge and skills. On one hand there exist different target groups in the process of health education with different needs and with different level and capacity of accepting the information on health. Practice of health education in old age groups differs substantially from the practice in adolescents or preschool children. On the other hand health professionals with different undergraduate background could be involved in the process of health education among them also physicians. In Slovenia, physicians of different speciality, especially general practitioners and family medicine specialists could be involved in health education on different occasions. Getting certain skills in health education could be of enormous importance for them.
