abstract title: “You become what you do” From good intentions to best practice

abstract text : Project "You become what you do" was inspired by and based upon Lifestyle Redesign ®, (University of Southern California US) and Lifestyle Matters developed by Mountain and Craig UK.
The project aimed at developing a Danish OT practice manual, based on international research and best practice experience, describing approaches to improve public health, life commitment and quality of life for diverse groups of citizens. The development and evaluation of the manual was made in close collaboration with OT practice in autumn 2011 and spring 2012. The OT´s involved evaluated and commented the manual and the approaches. The final manual will be presented and the process described. It is expected that the manual, based on the project: "You become what you do" is implemented in Danish OT practice as a well-documented and user-oriented health promotion and prevention method.
