Assignment 2: Course Project—Plan to Address Health Issue
This week, you will compare the strategies identified in Week 4 with evidence-based practices and evaluate a working group for the implementation of your proposed strategies. You will also create a master plan for addressing your health issue based on the individual project components you completed throughout this course.
In Week 1, you selected and analyzed a health issue, explaining the populations or groups most affected by it. In Week 2, you examined the behavioral and environmental risk factors related to your selected health issue. In Week 3, you analyzed the predisposing, reinforcing, and enabling behavioral risk factors for the selected health issue. In Week 4, you identified strategies to address each of these three behavioral risk factors as well as assessed the capacity of the community and community resources for change. This week, the focus of your final project will be to compare these strategies with evidence-based practices and evaluate a working group for the implementation of your proposed strategies. You will also combine the ideas from the papers developed from Week 1 through Week 5 to create a plan that could have a significant impact on the health issue you have selected.
