Student responsible:___________________________________ Word count: 400words This section will be the collaboration of all research and community profile information collated from research conducted during NURBN1004. As a group, consider the following questions whilst developing your health promotion program. Think about the ‘Who, Why, Where, How, What & When’ whilst making your decisions. Remember to also utilise the information from LGA health & Wellbeing Plans and Priority areas of Local, State or Federal governments. Question 1: What evidence do you have from your community to specify the health issue and focus population for this program? (What data tells you there is a problem here? Who is at risk?) Asthma has been considered as one of the leading chronic diseases for children and especially between ages 1-14 years. According to the available data from medical reports, there has been an overall rate of children in the Western Metropolitan area where Maribyrnong is part of it, (Department of Education and Early Childhood Development Victoria, 2009). The report indicates that asthma has been reflected as one of the major leading cause of burden disease among children from age 1 to 15 years. It means that the asthma condition around the area is a bigger problem that it can be thought of in any other area. Currently, there are over 2,000 hospitals separated from taking care of asthma condition among the children. With such an indication, it is clear that the region entails asthma as a problem that needs an address. Question 2: What social, environmental and behavioural determinants of health are contributing to this health issue? How? (What is CAUSING this issue? Why?) High levels of economic distress and lack of government willingness towards investing in the area has been associated with the development of the current status in the Maribyrnong area.

According to the reports, it is clear that the socioeconomic distress that affects these people has resulted to the prevalence of some healthy behaviors such as lack of care and medical attention for the children suffering from the Asthma condition in the region, (Dockery, et. al. The indication from the reports provides that with the low household income among the population and lack of exposure to good medical care attention from the limited hospitals has facilitated the continued rise in cases of asthma condition. Question 3: Are there any existing programs/policies etc. already addressing this issue in this community? If so, what are they and are they being effective? (What is already being done? What gaps are there?) Asthma Policy drafted in conjunction with The Asthma Foundation of Victoria provides for a deliberate policy and guidelines that are present in the Maribyrnong area towards helping address the issue.

The policy is mandated to help provide a safe and healthy environment for the people in the region. The policy has been guaranteed under some of the following programs: Approved Emergency Asthma Management Training; Asthma Child and Adolescent Program; Asthma Friendly Children Services Program; and Asthma Action Plan, (Maribynong kindergarten). All these help address the issue of Asthma in the area through the Asthma policy. Question 4: What resources, assets or strengths does your community have? (What can you use from WITHINYOURCOMMUNITY to help support your program?) The community under the new government program to help uplift the livelihood of people in discriminated areas on government services has been focused. These groups are conversant with the situation and will help pass on the information so as to take necessary precautions preventing the happening.

Question 2: What are the objectives that relate to your goal? How will you realise these? – relates to impact evaluation (What changes do you need to make to achieve the goal?) Approach on new therapeutic approaches is one of the changes I would like to initiate within the healthcare of the Maribyrnong community. Currently, access to healthcare consultations is not prevalent among the population. The new therapeutic approach aims to bring on board continued consultative and frequent visits to healthcare facilities by the mothers and their children, (Martinez, 2009). Under this, it is likely that there will be mitigated efforts on the condition.

Signed: Date: Document section: Implementation Student responsible:__________________________________ Word count: 400words This section will demonstrate the considerations you will need to make to implement your program into your community.

Also at homes of selected people will be necessary to provide for one on one interaction moment. Clinical and healthcare institutions will also be grounds upon which the exercise will be based to help get to the attention of the focused group. All these localities are selected due to the direct interaction and efficient one with the population towards communicating the information. Question 3: What individual health education (or personal skills) need to be considered? What knowledge deficits do you need to address? (What education is needed or gap in knowledge recognised? For Whom? Why?) Asthma as a chronic condition needs to get the proper attention from the professional personnel other than the provided assumption by non-experienced population. Clinicians and physician education is first the most needed knowledge and educational background. Think about how you might continuously reflect on the processes being under taken in order to gather information and make your decisions.

Consider the challenges you have to face to measure the impact of your program. Think about the strategies you have chosen in order to reach your goal, are they appropriate? How do you know? What changes may have been necessary along the way? Question 1: Outcome Evaluation How will you know that you have reached your SMART goal? (What tells you your intended outcome has been achieved?) In checking the achievement and progress of the intended goals, the reflection about reported cases of asthma among the hospital facilities will reflect if the awareness program has been successful. Within the duration of one year after the initiative, it will be enough to get the medical reports from the institutions and reference the cases with the previous years. Counter checking the medical report will offer a designated answer towards knowing and establishing the aspect of success on the program of awareness creation.

The utilization of the study generates a great accommodative prospect to measure the effect of the program to the people. Under the scrutiny of the hospital-based study, there is a likelihood of having a clear indication of how things are and are forecasted to be in the institution.
