Conversations that encourage participants to make healthier choices will be more successful if the local environment supports, promotes and reinforces the same messages. Health promoting environments are the places and surroundings that mirror the health messages we are promoting, for example, smoke free hospitals. They play an important role in enabling healthy choices for everyone. They can also act as environmental prompts or reminders for both staff and patients to increase the likelihood and opportunity of lifestyle conversations.
