Activity 3-
The Health Persuasion activity is smoking cessation among the primary
care providers, it will be based in workplaces, educational settings, hospitals
or across any multi-disciplinary place, carried out initially by health
professionals such as nurses, doctors or any medical profession, the activity
will be delivered in various of ways, such as teaching and raising awareness of
the causes of lung cancer.  Earle, (2007)
explains that the theory of reasoned action /planned behaviour (1980)
suggests that the attitude an individual who smoke thinks about the overall
assessments about whether to quit and whether it is good or bad. Moreover, a
smoker might believe that society disapproves of smoking and therefore approves
quitting such as getting the knowledge from professionals about the good side
of quitting. Furthermore, the (RA/PB 1980) theory continues to state that the request is the purpose in
which influences the individual’s behaviours, then interventions can
deliberately identify and target factors in this case, The research
by Charlotte L. (2006) identified that smokers who received nicotine
replacement therapy were roughly around 1 in 3 received verbal and non-verbal
advice had referral to their GP, few of the inpatients received both advice and
referral some nicotine replacement therapy, out of those 11 smokers reported
that they wanted to quit, however, only 5 of them received health promotion for
smoking cessation.

Activity 4- the Legislative Activity
will be lobbying to the MP, the lobbying activity will could be done through
politicians and individuals from the country who could put themselves forward
for being elected to become an ambassador to take part in the lobbying.
Earle, (2007) classify that Health Belief Model (1974) which
emphasises that tobacco use is determined by an individua’s perceptions
regarding personal vulnerability illness caused by tobacco use, serious of
tobacco as a problem treatment cost and the benefits of acting, barriers to
quitting, cues to change tobacco use behaviour. The research
done by the Cancer Research (2011) states that the beat cancer lobbying
campaign was successful because of this lobbying the government announced that £25
million would be invested in diagnostic testing for lung cancer and other
cancers, to help the health professionals to recognise cancer at an early
stage. Furthermore, the legislative activity is the most effective activity
this is because its aimed at everyone and raised a broad awareness, the cancer
research 2017 stated that campaigns purposes to get the governments support
because they are in charge, also by ensuring that cancer is at the top of the
health agenda is crucial to ensuring that lifesaving policies are taken
in.
