The primary level of health care promotion involves the prevention of injuries or diseases before they even occur. It is done by preventing the exposure to harm that may lead to injuries, diseases, or unsafe behaviors that may cause injuries or increase the disease resistance. The secondary level involves the reduction of the impact of an injury or disease that has occurred already. It is achieved through detecting and treating the injury or disease with the aim to regain the original health status.
The tertiary level aims at softening the impact of an illness or disease that is ongoing and has a lasting effect. It is achieved through assisting patients to manage their complex health issues and injuries. The above levels of health promotion determine the educational needs of a patient. For instance, at the primary level that is involved in the prevention of the disease, the patients are educated on various measures that they are required to take to prevent themselves from diseases. At the secondary level, the patient is educated on how to mitigate the effect of a certain health condition. At the secondary level, the patients are instructed on the practices that they should engage on softening the effect of a certain disease. And at the tertiary, “the focus is for the patient to be able to achieve some semi balance of normalcy and acclimate back in their lives and society depending on their complications, and some may need extensive rehabilitation,” (gcu, 2018) .
