Health promotion and prevention represent the core quality dimensions of hospital services. Against the rising incidence of chronic diseases, the provision of health promotion services is an important factor for sustained health, quality of life and efficiency. Prevention is also very important such as in the ambit of chronic diseases, whose spreading and development is greatly influenced by incorrect behaviours and whose improvement can be arrested or restrained thanks to early detection procedures.
