Health Promotion Program
this Assignment is a group assessment as a page on the Mahara e-portfolio (the blueprint is given below). There are 4 sections, divided among 4 groups of people in which they have to answer the questions given under each section. Apart from that, each group member has to make a video of 2minutes that is 8 minutes total video in which we have to discuss the health promotion program and we have to specify our health promotion program which u need to find what promotion program should we start to benefit our community and to prevent the late onset of type 2 diabetes in the older adults. you also need to specify the group of vulnerable people to whom we are selling this program. In the document part, u need to provide the grounds on which we have chosen our program along with evidence and in the video part, we need to specify the following questions: Why the program is needed? How it will benefit the target group? What are you aiming to achieve? What does the program involve? What does it COST the participant to participate in your program? you also need to name the program or the product we are selling to the chosen group. we can pay extra for the information for the video part. if something u need to ask u can contact me on my email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NURBN2021 Program Document Questions
Community Assessment and Needs Analysis
Word count: 400 words
This section will demonstrate your critical analysis of all the statistical data and community profile
information collated from research conducted during NURBN1004. You will need to show
understanding and evidence of WHY the particular health issue exists in YOUR community and WHO
might be vulnerable? You will also need to look at the positive aspects of your community and how
they might be useful when developing a program to drive change. Your decisions and interventions
must be based on facts and rationale. Therefore, you must demonstrate (and support with
evidence), WHY your program need is needed and WHO is it going to help? Remember to utilise
information from LGA health & Wellbeing Plans and Priority areas of Local, State or Federal
governments in addition to your own findings.
The following questions are to be answered in relation to YOUR program and community:
1. What evidence do you have from your community to specify the health issue and focus
population for this program? (What data tells you there is a problem here? Who is at risk?)
2. What social, environmental and behavioural determinants of health are contributing to this
health issue? How? (What is CAUSING this issue? Why?)
3. Are there any existing programs/policies etc., already addressing this issue in this
community? If so, what are they and are they being effective? (What is already being done?
What gaps are there?)
4. What resources, assets or strengths does your community have? (What can you use from
WITHIN YOUR COMMUNITY to help support your program?)

This section is about defining WHAT you want to achieve with your program and HOW you aim to
achieve your goals. Similar to evaluation, this section needs to address three different levels of
development- the overall outcome you want to see happen, the impact your intervention/s might
have on your target group and the process you will use to achieve your goals. There are many
different aspects of planning to be considered, as shown with the questions below. However, for this
section, you MUST demonstrate understanding on each of the different levels of planning.
Please answer ONE question from each of the following categories:
• What is the SMART goal of your program? (What do you want to achieve? Who do
you want to achieve it?)
• What behaviours need to change to achieve your goal?
• How can you change current behaviours and achieve your goal?
• What deficits (knowledge or skills) need to be addressed to create change?
• How might you instigate change- what will you DO? (Remember this is a NURSE led
program- YOU are the nurse)
• What actions or activities will you implement to promote change?
• What do you need to provide the activities?
• How might the target audience participate? What do you want them to DO?
• How long will you need to PLAN and/or to implement your program? (Timeline)

This section is where you demonstrate your understanding of the rationale for the decisions you
have made as a group. Although you are NOT actually running a real program, you must express your
answers to the following questions, showing you have thought of the various challenges that might
arise, and the expected way the participant might respond to your ideas. You need to consider the
intent of the program and the purpose of doing what you have decided to do and how it may be
received by a potential audience.
The questions below help you to demonstrate understanding of WHY you have chosen to implement
the program the way you have:
1. What health promotion model or models is your program based on and why? (Eg: Health
Belief Model, Stages of Change, Ottawa Charter, etc?)
2. What is the setting/supportive environment where your program will take place? Is this the
most appropriate given your target population? Why? (What venue/location will you use?
How will it be accessed? What facilities are required, etc?)
3. What individual health education (or personal skills) deficits are being addressed? Who has
these deficits, why do they exist, and how are you meeting their needs? (literacy focus)
4. What other stakeholders are involved in your program? Why or how do they contribute?

Remembering the health promotion process is a cycle, evaluation must take place throughout the
development and implementation of your ideas. This section demonstrates you have considered the
most appropriate way to measure success on all three levels: overall outcome, the impact on your
target audience and the process you have decided to use to instigate change. Answering the
following questions will explain how you will know if your program has been successful or if your
goals have been achieved? You will need to show you can identify factors that inform positive or
negative outcomes and the various tools that can be used to measure success or failure.
1. Outcome Evaluation- How will you know you have achieved your SMART goal? (What will
tell you if your intended outcome has been achieved?)
2. Impact Evaluation- How will you know if your strategies to promote change have been
effective? (What is telling you that changes have occurred?)
3. Process evaluation- How will you assess that the actions or activities used have been
effective? (How will you know if what you are DOING in your program is effective?)
4. What formal or informal tools will you use to evaluate your program in terms of success or
the effect on your target population? (What tools/resources will provide data or information
regarding your program’s success?)
Many questions in this document will require supportive evidence. The use of data or other evidence
from literature, must be correctly cited in your text response as well as listed in ONE complete
reference list for the full program document, NOT in a list at the end of each section. A minimum of
10 current and appropriate references are required for this task and they must be formatted in APA
7th referencing style.
Some question responses will not require references, as rationale will be based on existing
community resources etc. For example, you cannot reference why you might use a local football
ground to conduct an activity, but rather you must explain why it is the most appropriate venue for
the activity and population group, in regards to cost, location, access, convenient time of use and so
on…. However, you do need to support responses such as why a particular knowledge or skill deficit
might exist with this group of people. This would need to be supported with statistical evidence or
literature and referenced accordingly. When you use information from somewhere that influences
your ideas, you MUST cite where that information came from. You cannot make decisions based on
opinion only- you must make informed decisions. Base your knowledge on EVIDENCE.
