In this article, the writer examines three different articles in order to discuss the issue of health promotion within nursing. Firstly the writer looks at "Does 'Health Promotion' Really Promote Health?" by Feinstein, Alvan. The writer then discusses "Diet and Diabetes--the New Recommendations" by Pam Dyson. Finally the writer examines the article "Noncompliance with Body Weight Measurement in Tertiary Care Teaching Hospitals" by Jensen, Gordon L. & Janet M. Friedman, Donna Henry K, Annalynn Skipper, The writer concludes that in all of these articles, health promotion is defined as enabling the individual to engage in more effective self-monitoring and self-care, not simply on a physical level, but on a psychological level, as away from the nurse's immediate supervision, the patient must continue to monitor his or her exercise, diet, and other aspects of health.
