This chapter examines some of the issues surrounding participation in health promotion interventions and considers what is required to acquire informed consent and promote informed decision-making. It suggests that in evaluating a health promotion programme outcomes should not be measured simply in terms of uptake, but informed uptake. Evaluation should include measures of knowledge and empowerment, not simply acceptance or refusal.

Keywords:   informed consent, health promotion evaluation, informed participation, ethical issues, health programmes, programme evaluation
