You will participate in a discussion activity to design a health campaign based on the topics and issues covered this semester. All topics and theoretical concepts are fair game. You are free to combine different theories and justify your reasoning. However, it is important that you base your arguments on readings and lectures. NO copy-paste or any other forms of plagiarism of online or off-line materials. You have all worked hard throughout the semester, it’d be stupid to get an F because of plagiarism. This is a fun exercise, have fun!!
You may want to write your answers on a word processor before posting the answers on the forum. Let’s get started.
To design a health intervention, please address the following topics:
Background on the public health problem: (100-150 words)
Ordinarily, this section would require an in-depth analysis of the problem. For purposes of this assignment, we will assume others have completed this in-depth analysis. Your job is to provide a brief summary describing the public health problem that the intervention is designed to address. Suggested topics to cover include:
Objectives: (100 words)
The task is to identify the objectives of the program and to include them in your plan. When you can phrase the objectives to conform to SMART (Links to an external site.)(see: changingminds.org/disciplines/hr/performance_management/smart_objectives.htm (Links to an external site.)
) objectives (even if this means “embellishing” what is given in class).
Description of the intervention: (300 words)
This section explains to the reader the different activities that will be carried out with the aim of achieving the program objectives. This information is important for understanding the program and (later) designing the process evaluation. For the purposes of this assignment, limit the description to a summary overview.
Conceptual framework: (300-500 words)
The conceptual framework is the most challenging aspect to this assignment. Allocate the greatest portion of time on this assignment to getting it right. You may want to look up the textbook to see some theoretical framework for inspiration. Here are some tips:
