1000 words and 10 minute presentation

Unit learning outcomes

  1. Demonstrate the following knowledge and understanding

Critical understanding of health needs of a diverse population and a consideration of how wider socio-political and economic issues influence how health services are planned, resourced and organized effectively to address those needs.

2. Demonstrate the following skills and abilities

Evidence of good project management skills in planning, leading and delivering a health service strategy that is cost effective, timely and qualitative.

 

What am I required to do in this assignment?

  1. Students are required to design an academic poster (not a Power-point set of slides) on a specific existing national or international health service issue.
  2. Students are required to identify a health service where there is a gap in that service’s provision that results in unmet

needs. This can be a statutory service or a non-Government service

  1. Students are encouraged to choose from any of the topics that have been explored in the unit in order to express what this unmet need is e.g. workforce challenge, leadership, funding, technological delivery etc.
  2. The task requires that students provide some justification for their choice of service and the unmet need, including research of other services that provide a similar service and how your project places you well in a competitive healthcare market.
  3. Students need to demonstrate knowledge of the use of tools and technology skills you will use to improve the service and mitigate the gap you have identified.
  4. Students must include methods or models taught in the unit and how you will use them to guide, implement and evaluate your proposed change.

 

You need to submit your poster electronically via BREO. The presentation should include a full list of references in accordance with the Harvard Referencing guidelines.

Students will be required to support the submission with a 10 minute presentation of the ideas underpinning their design and this will be followed by an opportunity for questions from the audience (from your peers and tutors); to which the student must respond.

A schedule for the poster presentation sessions will be announced later in the unit and these will take place as advertised on BREO in the week immediately after the electronic submission of the academic poster.

Students are encouraged to discuss their proposed choices with your tutor prior to designing the poster. The poster must incorporate the following:

  • Title of the poster
  • Introduction /Description of the existing health service issue/unmet needs.
  • Evidence of research identifying rationale for design (this may include what similar competitors may be doing)
  • Proposed plan for improvement (including methodology/models)
  • A plan for stakeholder involvement and dissemination
  • A brief evaluation strategy that will show how the new improved service is performing
  • Reference List: Not more than 10 references (of which 6 must be academic references and must include a reference to the core text).

Sessions on poster design and samples of effective posters will be explored to support your submission.

What do I need to do to pass? (Threshold Expectations from UIF)

To pass Assessment 2, the student will need to

  • Identify a gap in the current provision of a health service in relation to addressing a specific need.
  • Demonstrate the use of analytical tools and methodology when developing new or improving quality of services.
  • Demonstrate the use of technology for gathering and analysis of data.
  • Identify the competitors and their activities which may have an impact on the new or improved services.
  • Establish how the new or improved services will be evaluated to understand the degree of success or need for change.
  • Demonstrate skills in designing and presenting an academic poster.
  • Your poster needs to be realistic and evidence based.
  • Include not more than 10 references of which 6 must be academic references including the core reading.

Originality of the health service unmet needs

20%

The health service was well described, and unmet needs clearly identified comprehensively. The idea for the improved service is sound and novel and of wider reading.

The health service was well described, and unmet needs clearly identified explicitly.

However, the rationale for the improvement could have been clearer.

The health service was described, and unmet needs identified but the improvement identified lacks coherence. E.g it does not really match the

There is an attempt to describe the health service and present an unmet need/needs but a clear improvement idea is difficult to identify

A health service has been identified but the unmet need is not clearly out-lined and improvement idea does not have a rationale or is not realistic

A specific health service and unmet need is very vague or has not been identified.

There is no clear rationale.

There is evidence that a wide range of credible sources have been used to inform the service under consideration and the analysis of sources is rigorous . An appropriate theoretical framework has been considered to underpin the design c

Referencing is of an excellent standard and 6 or more academic sources, including the core text, have been used to inform the design of the poster.

There is evidence that a good range of credible sources have been used to inform the service under consideration and the analysis is good but lacks criticality, An appropriate theoretical framework has been considered to underpin the design but its explanation could have been made more relevant to the service under consideration.

 

Referencing is of a good standard and at least 6 academic sources, including the core text, have been used to inform the design of the poster

There is evidence that some sources have been used to inform the service under consideration but some of the analysis is largely descriptive and lacks rigor. A theoretical framework has been considered to underpin the design but it does not seem appropriate to explain the service under consideration. Identify a gap in the current provision of a health service in relation to addressing a specific need

 

Referencing is of a fair standard but not at least 6 academic sources, including the core text, have not been used to inform the design of the poster. Some sources are generic online sources

There are very few sources used to underpin the data gathering process. Analysis is barely present and the theoretical framework, although present, has not been explored to any depth.

Referencing may be incorrect or poorly formatted.

Although at least 6 academic sources, including the core text, generic online sources dominate the design

There is limited evidence of sources used to underpin data gathering. There is little analysis and there is no clear presentation or demonstration of understanding of a theoretical framework.

Referencing is mainly incorrect and the required number of academic sources has not been met, although there may be mention of at least one of the core texts. There is an over-reliance on online sources

There is very limited evidence of sources used in the data gathering process. There is a lack of understanding of theoretical framework.

Referencing is very poor and there is a lack of reference to academic sources and/or core text
