Discussion 3: Analyze healthy behaviors
Final Project Part II will involve the construction of a proposal for a health promotion teaching tool that will be of value for the patient. This activity will allow you the opportunity to discuss health literacy best practices and how you would use them to educate, inform, and empower your patient with regard to their health risks and/or healthy behaviors. For this final project, you will propose a health promotion teaching tool based on your assessment findings.
This assessment will address your mastery with regard to the following course outcomes:
Interpret health assessment findings based on norms for healthy adults to inform patient health education strategies
Employ health literacy best practices for informing health promotion resources for diverse populations
Develop health education activities that utilize evidence-based practices for promoting patient safety and quality of care
For this final project, you will analyze your findings from the comprehensive head-to-toe patient assessment you completed with your patient volunteer in Module Six. You will also propose a health promotion teaching tool based on a health risk or healthy behavior of your choice that you identified during the comprehensive assessment. Note: You do not need to create the actual teaching tool, but rather write a proposal in which you will describe the tool and discuss your rationale behind the choices you make for its development based on your patient assessment.
Please answer following prompts below.
Analyze health risks uncovered during your assessment. In other words, what unhealthy behaviors the patient engages in or indicators of disease or illness did you discover? If you feel there were none, be sure to explain your rationale.
Analyze healthy behaviors the patient engages in that you discovered during your assessment. In other words, what opportunities exist for health promotion? If you feel there were none, be sure to explain your rationale.
Specify the critical information about your topic based on your assessment findings that you would include in your teaching tool.
Recommend specific intervention(s) for your topic that will result in improved patient outcomes or will promote health maintenance. Be sure to support your recommendations with evidence-based research.
Determine the medium (presentation, brochure, poster, or other format) that would be most appropriate for communicating information about your chosen topic. Be sure to explain your rationale.
Discuss the health literacy best practices you would employ to ensure your teaching tool is appropriate for diverse populations. Be sure to support your claims with specific examples from evidence-based research.
Describe your plan to ensure compliance of your teaching tool with Flesch-Kincaid readability guidelines. Be sure to explain your rationale.
Guidelines for Submission: Your paper should be formatted with one-inch margins and 12-point Times New Roman font, and all citations and references must appear in proper APA format.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
