Pointing to a dissonance between the way professionals would like to improve public health and what individuals believe is important for themselves, Lucas and Lloyd argue for a health promotion component that focuses on improving the quality of people’s daily lives rather than solely aiming to prevent disease. They call for a positive and holistic orientation to health. To this end, they recommend that public health providers consider their patients’ values and no longer view individuals as separate from society.
