Unit 8: Promoting health and well being
Introduction 
The Aim of my coursework is to carry out and write a report of a scale health promotion Project relevant to one of the services user groups, the services user group that I have choose is Health (ill people) this group are people who are ill or who suffer from any diseases. The target group I have chosen is adulthood that has been suffered Lung Cancer disease. In this report I have to give information about what are the consequences of this disease, what people know about this, what they thing about it. Also I will look for background information about the topic I have chosen, the information will be provide by internet, book, etc. This will help me to understand more, and also to have a better own knowledge about the topic that I am promoting.  I have four aims that I would like to do:

* first I would like to know how people who suffer from Lung cancer feels, I choose this aim as for me it is important to have a better knowledge of how they live with this and what they would like to do. * The second aim that I would like to know is what people think about campaigns, I think this is important to know what people’s opinions are this will help me to know and know what I could give to individuals the things that they think other campaigns do not give. * The third is to give individuals information and a better knowledge, I think this is really important to my target group as they need to have a better knowledge about this disease. * My last aim is to know what it is the per cent of people who suffer from Lung Cancer in the UK. I choose this aim as I think it is important for me to know how many people are suffering from Lung cancer.

I will plan my promotion including the Aims and Objectives, giving a full explanation of my choice of approach, and the ways I will measure the success of my promotion. Also I will analyse the success of the promotion, and also I will evaluate the outcomes of the promotion.  Also I will make a questionnaire to people who would be interesting in information about lung cancer, as well for people who knows about this disease or they have any experience with this. This will help me to have better information about what people know about this disease. However I will create a PowerPoint and leaflets with this type of information, I will explain why I use these resources.   In my report I will not refer to my client by their real name but will call them Client A,B,C,D,E,F this is following The Data Protection Act (1998) and the Care Value Base by maintaining confidentiality in my clients information. Background
