Community Health and Disease Prevention

Community Health and Disease Prevention

Instructions:

In this Assignment, you will collaborate with other peers and develop a strategy with the aim of preventing obesity in children and youth in a community setting (Please refer Flynn et al.,2006 and by Patton et al., 2009, to help your thinking on this issue).blankYou need to complete a Group Assignment, which you will do in collaboration with three other colleagues in your subject. Please refer  https://student.unsw.edu.au/groupwork for tips on group work. Group power point presentation along with self-peer evaluation form should be submitted via blackboard.

Please note: To prevent social loafing, groups experiencing problems with the level of commitment of individual members are required to contact their course facilitator in the first instance. If problems persist, the group members can grade their colleagues accordingly on the Peer Evaluation Form (available on Blackboard). Marks may be deducted for individual members who do not live up to the expectations of the other group members.

Once you know the group you are in, work out the best way to communicate with your peers for the development of the Assignment (e.g., through zoom, Skype, telephone, and/or email, Google Docs or  any other method).

To prepare for this assignment:

  1. What intervention/s would you like to run? Your choices should be supported by the published literature. For how long will the intervention run?
  2. Who are the stakeholders that you will need to involve to make this intervention successful?
  3. What would each of those people have to do? Who would be responsible for which project tasks (ie leadership, development or delivery of educational material, managing the budget and finances)?
  4. How much will the required resources cost? This can just be an estimate of the costs that will be involved. If you need to hire staff, estimate the amount of their time that you need (ie hours/days per week) and how much their salary would cost. Don’t forget consumables like paper for printing, and envelopes and stamps if needed. This is your estimated budget.

To prepare for this assignment:

  1. Briefly explain your intervention, and any research evidence that supports this as a good intervention.
  2. Explain how your intervention addresses primary, secondary, and/or tertiary prevention as a health promotion strategy.
  3. Explain the different phases of your strategy: planning, community engagement, implementation, management, evaluation and recommendations.
  4. Use subheadings to describe what you will do at each of these stages.
  5. Where does each phase fit into your timelines?
  6. Who needs to be involved in each phase, and what would they need to do?
  7. Include your list of costs and estimated budget.
  8. Conclude with recommendations about preventing obesity in children and youth.

The output will be a power point presentation with voice recorded over it for online students, that utilizes your combined professional judgement and the evidence provided in the Learning Resources on Modules 3, 4 to design an obesity prevention strategy.
