Perspectives on Future Health Care: Presented to the Division of Health Psychology at the American Psychological Association
Annual Convention, Washington, DC (August 24, 1982)
I began this subject by pointing out how a number of important issues fit together under the general heading of "disease
prevention and health promotion" and went into some length about the benchmark publications called "Healthy People,
and "Objectives for the Nation" based on the contribution of some 2,000 non-government experts in the broad spectrum
of health and social service disciplines.
I started with smoking, then hypertension and tied them and preventive medicine into disciplines represented in health psychology
at that particular meeting.
I closed with ethical standards of behavior and the choices now presented to the
profession of psychology -- indeed to all professions involved in health care -- and that is misconduct in research.
