Environmental Factors and Health Promotion Presentation

Environmental Factors and Health Promotion Presentation


The growth, development, and learned behaviors that occur during the first year of infancy have a direct effect on the individual throughout a lifetime. For this assignment, research an environmental factor that poses a threat to the health or safety of infants and develop a health promotion that can be presented to caregivers.

Create a 10-12 slide PowerPoint health promotion, with speaker notes, that outlines a teaching plan.

In developing your PowerPoint, take into consideration the health care literacy level of your target audience, as well as the demographic of the caregiver/patient (socioeconomic level, language, culture, and any other relevant characteristic of the caregiver) for which the presentation is tailored

Include the following in your presentation:

  1. Describe the selected      environmental factor. Explain how the environmental factor you selected      can potentially affect the health or safety of infants.
  2. Create a health promotion plan      that can be presented to caregivers to address the environmental factor      and improve the overall health and well-being of infants.
  3. Offer recommendations on      accident prevention and safety promotion as they relate to the selected      environmental factor and the health or safety of infants.
  4. Offer examples, interventions,      and suggestions from evidence-based research. At least three scholarly      resources are required. Two of the three resources must be peer-reviewed      and no more than 6 years old.
  5. Provide readers with two      community resources, a national resource, and a Web-based resource.      Include a brief description and contact information for each resource.

 While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines,
