This phase of assessment pinpoints the factors that must be changed to initiate and maintain behavioural change. Educational diagnosis looks at the specific features that hinder or promote behaviour related to the health issues that are important in your community. An example would be to identify why people are behaving in a way that is dangerous to their life? As you will see later in the study session there are a number of ways of examining these sorts of questions as they relate to predisposing, enabling and reinforcing factors.
