HW425 Unit 7 Assignment: Designing the Intervention & Planning for Implementation
Course Outcome addressed in this Assignment:
HW4254: Design health and wellness programming for a multicultural and economically diverse population in a community based setting.
Unit Outcomes addressed in this Assignment:
Describe common theories and models of health behavior.
Apply theory to develop program activities.
Create a program logic model.
Discuss the importance of tailoring program activities.
Develop a plan to implement health promotion programming.
Describe factors that influence the adoption and implementation of health promotion programs.
Background: In your previous assignments, you addressed several steps of the general planning process in developing a communitybased health promotion program. Specifically, you assessed the health needs of the community, chose a health focus and a target population to serve, developed the program mission, goals, and objectives, and considered funding, budgets, and administrative tasks. The next steps in the planning process are designing the intervention and planning for program implementation.
In order to plan an appropriate and effective intervention, you need to choose a suitable theory or model of health behavior and design program activities according to its constructs. You will also need to think about how the activities you create can be tailored to your specific target population. Once you’ve developed program activities, you can also complete a program logic model that shows the intended and expected relationships between program components and the intended outcomes. A logic model is useful as a planning tool, an implementation guide, and an evaluation resource. In this assignment, you will complete a basic logic model that represents the components of your program.
Finally, once the intervention has been designed and the program components are clear, it is time to plan for program implementation. Even the most wellplanned program will never be effective in achieving the intended outcomes if it is not implemented. Many health promotion programs are not implemented directly by those who plan them, rather they must be implemented by those in a position to reach the target population. In addition, those in a position to implement the program may not be the decisionmakers responsible for choosing to adopt a program. To plan for program implementation, you must determine who will adopt and implement the program, explore any potential barriers to adoption, and establish the expected program implementation tasks.
In this Assignment, you will: choose a theory or model of health behavior to guide the creation of program activities, justify your choice, create program activities, create a program logic model, and develop a program implementation plan.
Your Assignment should be approximately 3–4 pages in length, written in primarily essay format. Each of the sections listed below (except the logic model and summarizing conclusion) should be supported by relevant, highly credible* sources. Include appropriate supporting citations and references in APA format.
*Highly credible sources include: course materials, governmental agency websites, nonprofit and philanthropic organization websites, textbooks, scholarly sources.
Highly credible sources do not include: commercialized websites, blogs, popular media magazines and websites.
Please consult your instructor if the suitability of a source is in question.
Address the following:
Introduction (1 – 2 paragraphs)
describe what a theory is,
explain why theories are useful in designing health intervention programs, and
explain how theories can be used to guide the implementation of health interventions.
Choose a Theory of Health Behavior (3 4 paragraphs)
Choose a theory or model of health behavior to guide the creation of program activities from this list: Health Belief Model, Theory of Reasoned Action, Theory of Planned Behavior, Transtheoretical Model/Stages of Change, Social Cognitive Theory, Social Ecological Model.
Provide an overview of the theory or model chosen, including its main constructs.
Explain why the chosen model/theory is appropriate for the purpose and population of the program.
Provide supporting evidence justifying the choice of model/theory.
Create Theorybased Program Activities (2 – 4 paragraphs)
Create least 1 program activity that explicitly addresses each construct of the chosen theory/model. Indicate the construct addressed by the activity.
Each program objective should be supported by at least one activity. Explain which activity/activities support each program objective.
Tailor the Program (1 – 2 paragraphs)
Explain what is meant by tailoring program activities.
Discuss specific, relevant steps that will be taken to tailor program activities to the target population.
Create a Program Logic Model (students may create their own or use the template in course resources)
Create a program logic model that:
Accurately depicts the relationship between:
Reflects the placement of program activities and objectives within the logic model.
Write 1 – 2 paragraphs that explain the program logic model.
Develop a Program Implementation Plan (3 – 4 paragraphs)
This portion includes a program implementation plan that:
Describes who will adopt the program,
Accurately identifies potential barriers to program adoption,
Offers suitable strategies to address barriers to program adoption
Describes who will implement the program,
Accurately identifies potential barriers to program implementation,
Offers suitable strategies to address barriers to implementation
Establishes a reasonable program implementation timeline.
