PRECEDE stands for Predisposing, Reinforcing, and Enabling Constructs in Educational/Environmental Diagnosis and Evaluation, while PROCEED stands for Policy, Regulatory, and Organizational Constructs in Educational and Environmental Development. The PRECEDE portion of the model focuses on identifying educational factors that influence change. The PROCEED portion of the model was added in 1991 to acknowledge the importance that environmental, regulatory, policy, and organizational factors have in shaping health, and it focuses on identifying ecological factors that influence change.
