Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
Planning and Topic
Directions: Develop an educational series proposal for your community using one of the following four topics:
- Environmental Issues
- Primary Prevention/Health Promotion
- Secondary Prevention/Screenings for a Vulnerable Population
Planning Before Teaching:
|Name and Credentials of Teacher:
|Estimated Time Teaching Will Last:
|Location of Teaching:
|Supplies, Material, Equipment Needed:
Projector and laptop
|Community and Target Aggregate:
Alcoholics support group
Primary Prevention/ Health promotion
Identification of Focus for Community Teaching (Topic Selection):
Primary Prevention/ Health promotion; Alcoholism prevention
Epidemiological Rationale for Topic (Statistics Related to Topic):
There has been a shift from precision medicine to preventive medicine in the recent past, as emphasized in establishing community medicine discipline. As Psaty, Dekkers, Cooper (2018) observes, this discipline essentially involves educating the general public on effective disease prevention measures.
Alcoholism is a significant cause of cardiovascular complications and depressed immunity that predisposes the users to various diseases that are potentially debilitating. Educating alcoholics in recovery on the adverse effects of alcohol on their health will help them develop a stronger resolve to stop alcohol consumption (Chiva-Blanch & Badimon, 2020 Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal).
Teaching Plan Criteria
The teaching exercise will involve using a slide presentation that will have both literal and pictorial components. Healthy substitute drinks like blended juices and non-alcoholic beverages will be available at the exercise for the participants to choose from. Other activities like working out, swimming, hiking, and dancing will be suggested to cover when the participants used to spend indulging in alcohol.
Alcoholics are at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases like hypertension and heart failure, which necessitates educating alcoholics on alcohol’s adverse effects to help them make a stronger resolve to quit the use of alcohol (Díaz-Gutiérrez et al., 2018 Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal).
Readiness for Learning: Identify the factors that would indicate the willingness to learn for the target aggregate. Include emotional and experiential eagerness to learn.
Emotional readiness; the selected group is an alcoholics-support group in recovery, which shows they have an individual drive to help stop alcohol consumption.
Experimental readiness; The alcoholics are willing to learn about the benefits of quitting alcohol consumption; thus, shining a light on the adverse effects of alcohol on their health will go a long way in boosting their resolve to stop alcohol consumption.
The objectives of the community teaching on alcoholism prevention are centered around the Health People 2020 (HP2020) objectives. The HP2020 was established in the year 2020 to attain high quality and long lives free from preventable diseases, injury, disability, and premature death; to promote health equity and eliminate disparity in health care provision, and improve health in all groups; to create physical and social environments that enhance good health for everyone; and to promote healthy development, quality of life and enhance healthy behaviors across all the life stages. This particular teaching exercise will focus on the first HP2020 objective, preventing preventable diseases, injuries, disabilities, and premature deaths by preventing cardiovascular disorders posed by alcohol.
The objectives are as follows;
- The alcoholics will learn on adverse effects of alcohol on their health
- The alcoholics will identify another substitute healthy recreational drinks in place of alcohol.
- The alcoholics will be informed on other recreational activities to cover when they indulge in alcohol consumption.
How Does This HP2020 Objective Relate to Alma Ata’s Health for All Global Initiatives
The Alma Ata Declaration established in 1978 emphasizes health for all to increase life expectancy by preventing preventable diseases and early disease detection and modification. Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
Through prevention of occurrence of preventable cardiovascular diseases through reduced community alcohol consumption, this teaching exercise will be in line with the Alma Ata Declaration.
Develop Behavioral Objectives (Including Domains), Content, and Strategies/Methods:
Example – Third-grade students will name one healthy food choice in each of the five food groups by the end of the presentation. (Cognitive Domain) Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
Example – The Food Pyramid has five food groups which are….
Healthy foods from each group are….
Unhealthy foods containing a lot of sugar or fat are….
(label and describe)
Example – Interactive poster presentation of the Food Pyramid. After an explanation of the poster and each food category, allow students to place pictures of foods on the correct spot on the pyramid. Also, have the class analyze what a child had for lunch by putting names of foods on the poster and discussing what food group still needs to be eaten throughout the day.
The participants will identify healthy recreational drinks from the variety presented to them at the end of the presentation.
The collection of recreational drinks will include sweetened blended juice, non-alcoholic cocktails, and other commercial soft drinks. Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
The participants will have an opportunity to indulge in drinking the healthy variety of drinks presented before them and select their favorite.
An interactive question and answer session on how the substitute healthy non-alcoholic recreational drinks are prepared and their nutritional value will be conducted.
The participants will be encouraged to ask any questions regarding the substitute non-alcoholic drinks.
A conclusion will be drawn whether the participants could be willing to substitute alcohol for the non-alcoholic options.
The participants will be introduced to other recreational activities like swimming, working out, and hiking.
The participants will select their preferred recreational activity from the options provided
Plans to undertake such activities will be incorporated into their support group routine.
The participants will be asked to educate on recipes for substitute non-alcoholic drinks. Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
The participants will be asked to draft the recipes for the substitute non-alcoholic drinks.
The participants will be encouraged to make and drink the substitute non-alcoholic drinks in place of alcohol.
Creativity: How was invention applied in the teaching methods/strategies?
The participants will be involved in tasting non-alcoholic drinks and taught how to make them by themselves.
Planned Evaluation of Objectives (Outcome Evaluation): Describe what you will measure for each objective and how.
- If the alcoholic believe there is a problem in the alcoholic lifestyle.
- If the participants are willing to take a step toward rectifying the maladaptive behavior
- Overall self-assessment from the participants on their progress on quitting alcohol consumption and the health benefits. Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
- After three months, follow-up with the participants on how the teaching exercise has factored into their decision-making of quitting alcohol consumption. Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
Planned Evaluation of Goal: Describe how and when you could evaluate the overall effectiveness of your teaching plan.
The overall effectiveness of the teaching exercise will be assessed by engaging the leader of the alcoholic-support group on whether the members have made any positive changes after the teaching exercise and evaluating the number of relapse cases from the said group.
Planned Evaluation of Lesson and Teacher (Process Evaluation):
All participants will select a non-alcoholic drink of choice and be educated on how to make one. The teacher will observe the participants as they participate in this activity to gauge their level of enthusiasm and will to make the change. Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
Barriers: What are potential barriers that may arise during teaching, and how will those be handled?
The existing barrier to the teaching exercise is a social stigma against alcoholics. Alcoholics are often deemed as failures in society.
Solution; the solution to this is making them feel safe by pointing out their desire to change their maladaptive behavior as a step toward overcoming the vice.
4.2 Communicate therapeutically with patients.
How will you begin your presentation and capture the interest of your audience? Describe the type of activity you will use with your audience to exhibit active listening? Describe how you applied active listening in tailoring your presentation to your audience? How will you conclude your presentation? What nonverbal communication techniques will you employ? Example Community Teaching Work Plan Proposal
The therapeutic communication on this exercise will be done on a face-to-face level.
The presentation will begin by highlighting the statistical data available on the adverse effects of alcohol on health to capture their attention to the topic.
The presentation will involve using charts, diagrams, and the inclusion of persons who will serve as living examples of people who have embraced primary prevention/health promotion. The sessions will be interactive sessions with the presenters posing random questions to the audience to assess active listening.
In conclusion, for the presentation, handout distribution with more information about the exercise will be nonverbal communication employed to enable continuity of the learning process.
