Gerlinger, Thomas Biehl, Verena Wieber, Frank Wieber, Frank 2021-08-09T11:07:48Z eng Biehl, Verena Attribution 4.0 International Professional Characteristics of Health Promotion : A Scoping Review of the German and International Literature 2021-08-09T11:07:48Z 2021 Objective: This scoping review investigates current developments in the professional characteristics of health promotion (HP) with a focus on the German speaking part of Europe. The conceptualization of HP is a prerequisite for progressing HP professionalization and clarifying the interconnectedness between HP and Public Health.<br />Methods: The search strategy was informed by sociological professionalization theories. Original publications were included in a content-based analysis.<br />Results: Ninety publications (37 original publications) were identified in the review. The results are summarized in categories based on professional characteristics: 1) profession, 2) ethics, 3) education/training 4) competencies, and 5) quality. The professionalization of HP regarding the professional characteristics is less developed in the German compared to the international literature.<br />Conclusion: The mixed findings emphasize the relevance of a common HP conceptualization. The HP core competencies, which have been developed by the International Union for Health Promotion and Education must be further promoted. A strong HP workforce within Public Health strengthens the HP status in policy contexts and society and its contribution to promoting health and tackling social inequalities in health.
