Logic Model 1- Strategic

There is review level evidence supporting:

  • multi-faceted approaches and their synergistic effect (“Different elements of a broad, multi-faceted approach to prevent and reduce smoking may work synergistically. For example, mass-media campaigns targeted at children and young people may also have a positive effect on adults.  Similarly, campaigns aimed at adults may influence children and young people…  It is not a question of choosing one type of intervention over another but, rather, employing a range of interventions and ensuring they are carried out in the most effective way.”)
