  • 24. Prevention<br />Do you (or your organization) offer prevention programming?<br />What role do you play? (your level of involvement in prevention activities)<br />Does the core emphasize prevention enough?<br />Should the core include more focus on other specific prevention activities?<br />

If you have multiple worksites or clients; answer for the typical situation).<br />

The EAP Core Technology:<br />Does not<br />emphasize <br />prevention<br />enough<br />I play no<br />role<br />Never<br />Rarely<br />Little<br />Some<br />Sometimes<br />Little<br />Important<br />Some<br />I play the most <br />significant role<br />Good<br />Often<br />Strong<br />Emphasis<br />Frequently<br />
  • 28. Importance of Prevention<br />Over half of sample offer prevention at their organization “often” or “frequently”<br />Over half of sample play an “important” or “the most significant” role in prevention at their organization<br />But only one-fourth of sample thinks that the EAP Core has a “good” or “strong” emphasis on prevention <br />
  • 29. Do you feel that the Core Technology should be enhanced to include the following…?<br />
  • 30. What level of focus should EAPs have on providing services to help organizations become healthy work environments (healthy work cultures)?<br />
  • 31. Key findings<br />The Core Technology is well known and important to those in EAP field<br />Prevention activities are being provided <br />Prevention is also important, but not at as high a level as other areas of the Core – except for those already involved in prevention delivery who value it higher<br />There is strong interest in adding certain kinds of prevention services as part of EAP Core <br />
  • 32. Interest in further education in prevention<br />If given the opportunity to earn professional CE, how likely would you attend an e-learning course that gave you tools in workplace prevention?<br />As a professional, would you be interested in receiving further education about how you can bring prevention services to your (client) organization?<br />
