dc.description.abstract The present study reviews comprehensive worksite health promotion programs and their cost effectiveness. It was hypothesized that by conducting a qualitative meta-analysis of the literature in this area. it would be possible to reveal a general understanding of worksite wellness programs. Pelletier's (1991) meta-analysis of comprehensive industrial wellness programs was chosen as a model for the current review. The present author adds an additional category (program interventions) to Pelletier's work and studies published during or after 1990 were also incorporated into the present qualitative meta-analysis. Results suggest that the most common health promotion programs implemented by businesses are fitness. health risk appraisals and/or chronic disease education. tobacco cessation. nutritional awareness and/or weight control. stress management. and mental health services. In addition. the current study reviews many other factors associated with the cost effectiveness of worksite health promotion programs. en_US
