Introduction (200 words overall)

  1. Identification of the problem/health issue, you want to focus your intervention on, add some statistics to justify this

Rationale (800 words) (20%)

Why is it important to focus an intervention on health promotion with chosen age group/cohort? In chosen setting? (3/4 sentences)

  • Identify a cohort/group your intervention will target and justify this by indicating data that shows it is an issue/problem
  • Highlight in a national policy/strategy why this is a goal (2/3 sentences)
  • What are the potential benefits of focusing on this topic/problem/health issue – be specific, do not be too ambitious (2/3 sentences)
  • Introduce the planning model you are going to use and explain why it is a good choice for this intervention (recommend precede-proceed model)
  • Compare with another planning model e.g., simpler logic model

The precede stage of the model will set out reasons for doing the intervention:

Phase one (Social assessment)

  • Encourages an identification of ‘quality of life’ and how the intervention supports this concept for chosen age group/cohort,
  • identifies the problem you set out to run your campaign about (and how campaign/intervention will support your cohort)
  • Refer to the world health organization (WHO) definition of health – only refer to parts of it.

Phase Two (Epidemiological assessment)

  • (give the statistic) – think about affecting on life, social as well as health/illness. Diseases long term.
  • MAKE LINKS TO THE CONSEQUENCES OF DATA
  • Identify the social determinant of health (use the Dahlgren and whitehead, 1991) of the identified problems of the cohort for this upcoming cohort, this would be taught with

Phase Three (Ecological assessment):

  • Behaviors of the group and the environment in which you are carrying it out
  • This is the analysis of the behaviour links to health issues or problems that are identified in the social or epidemiological diagnosis
  • Explore and analyze lifestyle/behavioral and environmental factors that predispose, reinforce and enable behavior/lifestyle
  • Barrier / Facilitators

Phase Four (Administrative and policy diagnosis)

  • Organization – resources – professional, scheduled time, how regular it can be, can all individuals in setting access it
  • Identify policies and administrative factors that influence implementation of intervention that will encourage change

Needs assessments (20%)

  • What is a needs assessment (gov.uk) or any credible source? How is it carried out (gov.uk)? or from health promotion textbook

Step one:

  • of the needs assessment: how does your intervention idea (goal) fit within the National goals set by PHE? (All our health link). How does you intervention fits into policy/public health England
  • EXAMPLE: A health intervention in a nursery setting with children aged 3-4 years meets the public health England goal to give all children the best start in life (PHE, 2015). Public health England identify the importance of emotional wellbeing in the early years (PHE, 2015).

Step two:

  • Which impact area does your intervention focus upon – explain why (High Impact areas link) or any previous intervention that has been shown to work

Step three:

  • Identify readily available data that details social, economic, cultural and behavior factors that affect audience/cohort health (child (use your cohort here) health profile link)
  • EXAMPLE: Total population in local area, number in target age group, gender difference, disability levels, deprivation rates, English as second language, number of children in care, maternal mental health, dental extractions, family homelessness, childhood obesity, admission episodes for alcohol-specific conditions (under 18s), hospital admissions for asthma (under 19 years)

Order of priority and relevance to your intervention

Comparison between local and national data, you can use the PHE or any credible or reliable source??

Identify how your intervention is going to meet the needs of the cohort/audience identified in the data.

Step four:

  •  Identify LOCAL resources – for example total number of schools, services relevant to your intervention already available in schools, local services that can support, professional skills needed, facilities required (school and local community) – detail how each resource will support the intervention/limitations compare to other areas to identify deficiencie

Step five:

  • Involving stakeholders – identify who your stakeholders are and the methods you would use to hear their point of view (BEFORE THE INTERVENTION)
  • Detail the methods used with each stakeholder any why they would be a useful tool for a child, parent, staff (questionnaire, focus groups).
  • Give one or two example questions you would ask stakeholder and explain the information you are trying to extract (how the answers would be useful to designing the intervention).

Explain the approach that you are using and why, critique other approaches and why you approach is most suitable (quantitative or qualitative)?

Intervention Design (20%)

  • Identify aims and objectives of intervention and the setting where it will take place
  • Identify and explore the health promotion approach that is best appropriate for your intervention (Medical/preventative, behavioral, educational, empowerment/client centered, social change)
  • Identify and explore the health promotion theory that is best appropriate for your intervention and explain how it helps to explain behavior change

Include a table that reflects on the result of previous interventions (follow the example done in class)

Evaluation (20%)

  • Discuss your evaluation approach (formative, process and outcome evaluation) linking strongly to your aims and objectives. This could be linked to precede proceed model’s (evaluation) or to introduce formative evaluation 
  • It should enable the reader to gain a clear picture of how the intervention will be evaluated, drawing on the evaluation theory you have learned during the module

Ethics (10%)

  • Discuss the ethical values and principles underpinning health promotion/intervention
  • Apply these to your intervention

Academic Writing (10%)

  • This structuring and presentation of the report, the fluency of your writing, and your use and citation/referencing of sources. APA Style.

About XGBSHN5002 Planning, Designing and Evaluating Health Interventions From Our Experts

Assignment Overview

The assignment for the course XGBSHN5002 focuses on the intricate process of planning, designing, and evaluating health interventions. This task requires students to integrate theoretical knowledge with practical skills to develop comprehensive health intervention strategies. The objective is to address specific health issues within a target population, using evidence-based approaches to ensure the interventions are effective, sustainable, and culturally appropriate.

Planning Health Interventions

Planning is the foundational stage of any successful health intervention. In this assignment, students must conduct a thorough needs assessment to identify the primary health concerns within the target population. This involves collecting and analyzing data on health indicators, risk factors, and social determinants of health. Students are expected to engage with community stakeholders, healthcare professionals, and policymakers to ensure a holistic understanding of the health issue. The planning phase also includes setting clear, measurable objectives and goals that align with broader public health frameworks and policies.

Designing Health Interventions

Designing health interventions involves creating detailed plans that outline the specific activities, resources, and timelines necessary to achieve the set objectives. Students will learn to apply theoretical models and frameworks, such as the PRECEDE-PROCEED model or the Social Ecological Model, to structure their intervention strategies. This part of the assignment emphasizes the importance of cultural competence, ensuring that the interventions are tailored to the unique needs and preferences of the target population. Students must also consider the logistical aspects, such as budget constraints, staffing, and potential barriers to implementation.

Evaluating Health Interventions

Evaluation is a critical component of health interventions, as it determines the effectiveness and impact of the implemented strategies. In this assignment, students will design evaluation plans that include both process and outcome evaluations. They will learn to develop appropriate indicators and benchmarks to measure the success of the intervention. Methods for data collection and analysis, such as surveys, focus groups, and statistical analysis, will be explored to ensure rigorous evaluation. The evaluation phase also involves interpreting the results to make informed decisions about the continuation, modification, or termination of the intervention, with the aim of achieving continuous improvement in health outcomes.

Practical Application and Critical Thinking

Throughout the assignment, students are encouraged to apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills. They must navigate complex health issues, considering ethical implications, resource limitations, and diverse stakeholder perspectives. The assignment fosters the development of practical skills that are essential for future public health professionals, including project management, communication, and interdisciplinary collaboration. By the end of the assignment, students will have a comprehensive understanding of the lifecycle of health interventions, from conception to evaluation, preparing them to contribute effectively to the field of public health
