Assignment 5: Scholarly Paper – Strategies for Community Health Promotion | Value 30%
The purpose of this assignment is to provide the student with an opportunity to develop a health promotion program and relate strategies of community planning, implementation and evaluation to the community diagnosis identified in Assignment 2. Please note you are not expected to carry out the health promotion program that you develop.
Choose one of the following to complete this assignment:
Based on the community diagnosis you developed in Assignment 2, (a) develop an outline for a program to meet the identified need, including goals and objectives, and (b) compare and contrast the strengths and limitations of two approaches for influencing community change in the direction of health which would be appropriate in developing the proposed program (e.g., behavioral / lifestyle, socio-environmental approach) and which need to be considered in the planning, implementation and evaluation of the program. Discuss the role of the community health nurse related to each of the approaches and in relation to the planned program.
Based on the community diagnosis you developed in Assignment 2, (a) develop an outline for a program to meet the identified need and (b) develop a proposal for obtaining funding for the program. The proposal should include goals and objectives for the proposed program; a description of the target aggregate/group; rationale for the approach to be utilized (e.g., behavioral / lifestyle, socio-environmental approach); a description of the ?players? who will be involved in program planning, implementation and evaluation and their roles: proposed evaluation strategies; and, a budget for the program.
