Integrate with CSHP
This is an H3
According the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), school-based efforts to prevent skin cancer can be more effective in the framework of a Coordinated School Health Program. Such a program would include family and community participation.
The Coordinated School Health Program (CSHP) model was developed by the CDC and consists of eight interactive components.
It is recognized that schools cannot battle serious health and social problems on their own. Thus, in a systematic manner, a CSHP provides the framework to encourage the involvement of families, health care workers, the media, religious organizations, community organizations that serve youth, and the young.
Schools provide the opportune facility for the involvement of these individuals to work together in order to maintain the well-being of young people. A CSHP includes the integration of health and physical education, nutrition and health services, counseling, psychological and social services, healthy school environment, health promotion for staff, and family/community involvement.
This figure matches the seven sun safety guidelines from the CDC’s Guidelines for Schools to Prevention Skin Cancer with the eight Components of School Health, and shows how the two intertwine.
