Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
Directions: Develop an educational series proposal for your community using one of the following four topics:
2) Environmental Issues
3) Primary Prevention/Health Promotion
4) Secondary Prevention/Screenings for a Vulnerable Population
Planning Before Teaching:
|Name and Credentials of Teacher:
|Estimated Time Teaching Will Last: 50 hours
|Location of Teaching: United states, Oklahoma
|Supplies, Material, Equipment Needed: laptop, marker pens, board, papers, food chart and puzzle pieces.
|Estimated Cost: $45.00
|Community and Target Aggregate: School-aged children.
|Topic: Prevention of Obesity
Epidemiological Rationale for Topic (statistics related to topic):
In the United states of America weight that is higher than what is considered as a healthy weight for a given height is defined as overweight or obese. Body Mass Index (BMI), is used as a screening tool for overweight or obesity.
In 2007, over 750,000 Americans died of diseases of the heart and stroke. More than 300 risk factors have been associated with cardiovascular disease, but in developed countries, over a third of cardiovascular disease can be attributed to five major risk factors: (1) tobacco use, (2) alcohol use, (3) high blood pressure, (4) high cholesterol level, and (5) obesity (Mackay & Mensah, 2004).
Imbalanced Nutrition: More Than Body Requirements: Intake of nutrients that exceeds metabolic needs. Accepting the duty of self-care, identification of progress and the elimination of the negative health care practice, initiating the program needed for stress reduction, being active for seeking knowledge regarding disease process or medical treatment (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2000).
Readiness for Learning: Identify the factors that would indicate the readiness to learn for the target aggregate. Include emotional and experiential readiness to learn.
The factors that would indicate the readiness includes person is ready to search for knowledge, ready for two-way communication, ready to change the behavior and lifestyle.
Learning Theory to Be Utilized: Explain how the theory will be applied.
For the efficiency of the education and the assessment done for the obese patients, the “show-me” would serve best and offer the benefits of being more patient centered. I will assess client’s level of knowledge and understanding, and I will re-educate if they have any query. I will use simple, clear and easily under stable language to explain. I will present in short time so that they don’t get bored.
Goal: Healthy People 2020 (HP2020) objective(s) utilized as the goal for the teaching. Include the appropriate objective number and rationale for using the selected HP2020 objective (use at least one objective from one of the 24 focus areas). If an HP2020 objective does not support your teaching, explain how your teaching applies to one of the two overarching HP2020 goals.
Reduce the proportion of children and adolescents who are considered obese (NWS 10).
Reduce consumption of calories from solid fats and added sugars in the population aged 2 years and older (NWS 17)
How Does This HP2020 Objective Relate to Alma Ata’s Health for All Global Initiatives (See page 116 in the textbook)?
The concept of globalization of health recognizes that barriers between countries are blurring, that health issues cannot be isolated within one country, that large health disparities among countries are ultimately harmful to everyone, and that health for the world’s population should be the goal of every country. The WHO has made the elimination of health disparities its primary goal (Wagstaff, 2002). Although some progress has been made, much remains to be done. Even though the global strategy of Health for All was endorsed by 143 countries at Alma-Ata in 1978, it remains a statement of aspiration, not a reality (Novelli, 2005).
