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 face-to-face educational session addressing the health concern and health goals of your selected community member or group. In addition, collaborate with any participants in setting goals for the session, evaluating session outcomes, and suggesting 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.
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 local individuals or group in your community who were open to a presentation about a health concern and health promotion strategies. Once again, you will assume the role of a community nurse tasked with addressing the specific health concern within your chosen community. This time, you will implement the health promotion plan that you developed in Assessment 1 as a PowerPoint presentation. This presentation must be live and face-toface. You know that you must determine an effective teaching strategy, communicate the plan with professionalism and cultural sensitivity, obtain input on the value of the plan to the individual or group, and revise the plan, as applicable, to improve future educational sessions. To engage your audience, you decide to develop a slide presentation to communicate your plan. A copy of the slide presentation could also be given to the individual or group for future reference.
Remember that your first assessment (Assessment 1) MUST be satisfactorily completed to initiate this assessment (Assessment 4). These assessments meet the three-hour clinical learning experience required in this course
Please review the assessment scoring guide for more information.
To prepare for the assessment, you are encouraged to complete the Vila Health: Conducting an Effective Educational Session simulation. You may also wish to review the health promotion plan presentation assessment and scoring guide to ensure that you understand all requirements.

Your faculty may reach out to this individual to verify that you have accurately documented and completed your clinical hours.
Presentation Format and Length
You may use Microsoft PowerPoint (preferred) or other suitable presentation software to create your slides. If you elect to use an application other than PowerPoint, check with your faculty to avoid potential file compatibility issues.
The number of content slides in your presentation is dictated by nature and scope of your health promotion plan. Be sure to include title and references slides per the following:
Title slide: Health promotion plan title. Your name. Date. Course number and title. References (at the end of your presentation). Be sure to apply correct APA formatting to your references. The following resources will help you create and deliver an effective presentation:
