Build a slide presentation (PowerPoint preferred) of the health promotion plan you developed in the first assessment. Then, implement your health promotion plan by conducting a hypothetical face-to-face educational session addressing the health concern and health goals of your selected community nonprofit support group. How would you set goals for the session, evaluate session outcomes, and suggest possible revisions to improve future sessions?
As you begin to prepare this assessment, you are encouraged to complete the Vila Health: Conducting an Effective Educational Session activity. The information gained from completing this activity will help you succeed with the assessment as you consider key issues in conducting an effective educational session for a selected audience. Completing activities is also a way to demonstrate engagement.
Although study materials in this course refer to face-to-face communication and meetings with individuals and groups, all assignments in the course are based upon hypothetical individuals or groups.
Health education is any combination of learning experiences designed to help community individuals, families, and aggregates improve their health by increasing knowledge or influencing attitudes (WHO, 2018). Education is key to health promotion, disease prevention, and disaster preparedness. The health indicator framework identified in Healthy People 2020 helps motivate action in such areas as health service access, clinical preventive services, environmental quality, injury or violence, maternal, infant and child health, mental health, nutrition, substance abuse, and tobacco use.
Nurses provide accurate evidence-based information and education in various formal and informal settings. They draw upon evidence-based practice to provide health promotion and disease prevention activities to create social and physical environments conducive to improving and maintaining community health. When provided with the tools to be successful, people demonstrate lifestyle changes (self-care) that promote health and help reduce readmissions. They are better able to tolerate stressors, including environmental changes, and enjoy a better quality of life. In times of crisis, a resilient community is a safer community (ODPHP, n.d.; Flanders, 2018).
This assessment provides an opportunity for you to apply teaching and learning concepts to the presentation of a health promotion plan.

Note: This is the second part of a two-part assessment. You must complete Assessment 1 before completing this assessment.
This assessment builds upon Assessment 1 where you contacted and secured a hypothetical individual or group who were open to a presentation about concern and health promotion strategies. Once again, you will assume the role of a nurse tasked with addressing the specific community health concern identified in the first assessment. This time, you will implement the health promotion plan that you developed in Assessment 1 as a PowerPoint presentation complete with audio-recorded voice over and speaker notes. You must determine an effective teaching strategy, communicate the plan with professionalism and cultural sensitivity, solicit input on the value of the plan to its audience, and consider how you might revise the plan as applicable to improve future educational sessions. To engage your hypothetical audience, you decide to develop a slide presentation to communicate your plan. Note: you are not presenting to an actual individual or group. This is a hypothetical presentation.
