Module 3 – SLP

HEALTH PROMOTION PROGRAM PLAN, MISSION STATEMENT, GOALS AND INTERVENTIONS

Based on the information you collected in the Module 1 and Module 2 SLPs, discuss the mission statement, the goals, and the objectives of your health promotion program/intervention. What strategies and types of interventions would you use? What settings would you use for your program?

SLP Assignment Expectations

Please make sure that all assignment questions are specifically answered, that your answers are clear, and your paper is well organized. Provide enough depth, while paying attention to grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Your paper needs to be 2 pages long.

Your assignment will not be graded until you have submitted an Originality Report with a Similarity Index (SI) score <15% (excluding direct quotes, quoted assignment instructions, and references). Papers not meeting this requirement by the end of the session will receive a score of 0 (grade of F). Papers with a lower SI score may be returned for revisions. For example, if one paragraph accounting for only 10% of a paper is cut and pasted, the paper could be returned for revision, despite the low SI score. Please use the report and your SI score as a guide to improve the originality of your work.

ALSO REMEMBER YOU HAVE THE MODULE 2 SLP, I HAVE ATTACHED THE MODULE 1 SLP YOU COMPLETED.

Introduction

A person is said to be diabetic when he or she has high blood sugar. This may be due to low insulin production by the pancreas or the cells in the body are not responding appropriately to insulin (Lal, 2016). Diabetes mellitus can also be due to both issues which are the pancreas being unable to make sufficient insulin that is required and the cell not responding appropriately to insulin. The food we eat is supposed to be processed and changed to glucose or sugars so that it can be used as energy and when a person is diabetic the food not properly processed to be used as energy. Insulin is used to aid glucose into getting in the cells of the human body, if the pancreas is unable to make sufficient insulin or the cells do not respond appropriately to the insulin then sugars accumulate in the human blood leading to diabetes.

The two types of diabetes are Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes is a consequence of the pancreas being unable to make sufficient insulin leading to the patients taking insulin injections to supplement. Type 1 diabetes affects people in early teenage years or adulthood. The cells in the body may resist insulin or the pancreas may not be able to make sufficient insulin leading to type 2. 90% of all people suffering from diabetes in the world are Type 2 while 10% of them are Type 1 (Lal, 2016). People suffering from diabetes can treat and manage the condition through lifestyle change that includes monitoring blood sugar levels, taking medication as prescribed by the physician, maintain a balanced diet and engaging in physical activities.

Magnitude of the Disease

The number of current cases is likely to increase as more people are diagnosed with the condition daily. According to the CDC Diabetes Report card (2018), the prevalence rate of diabetes mellitus is high among blacks than whites. African American is more likely to develop diabetes than whites. The numbers among African Americans have increased over the last 30 years leading to increased diabetic complications like amputations and kidney failure. The leading cause of diabetes among African Americans are biological risk factors including obesity. The prevalence rate of obesity among African Americans is the major risk factor of diabetes. The other cause is resistance to insulin among African Americans. The rate of complications among African Americans is also high due to racial disparities in healthcare in the U.S. and poor glycemic control.

Diabetes incidence shows the rate at which new cases are diagnosed and has been going down from 2015 (CDC, 2018). The number of new diabetes mellitus had been on the increase from the 80’s until the year 2015 when the number of new cases started decreasing.

Hello and Welcome:

 

This is a shorter version of the Trident Writing Style Guide found on the Portal under My Resources 
This information will serve as general writing information.  I know most of you have good writing ability and experience, but it is always good to review. Here is a list of writing requirements and links to help you in areas for which you may need assistance. In the module feedback, in the event there are weaknesses in your writing, I will refer you to this list.
As a reminder, Trident is a writing University so you are graded both on your content and your writing skills for clarity of information.


 

EXAMPLE OF AN APA WELL WRITTEN RESEARCH PAPER

USE THE EXAMPLE AS A GUIDE BUT BE SURE TO USE ALL THE SUGGESTIONS PROVIDED BELOW

 

1. Here are a few helpful hints to improve your wiring.  Many of you will not make the same errors, but it still doesn’t hurt to review what some common errors are.

 

· Please review my comments from previous papers and don’t make the same errors.  It is frustrating when I write something and then the next paper still hasn’t corrected the problems.  I don’t want to sound too whiney!!!!  But please honor my time by reading my comments and I will honor your time spent writing by spending a great deal of time making those comments.  Is it a deal?  

· Every paper you write for this program should include an opening introduction and a concluding paragraph. 

· The opening should be a general introduction into the paper, address the problem you are covering in the paper, and provide a one or two sentence roadmap to the organization of the paper. This is the thesis of the essay. Do not write what you are going to do, rather what is this essay about. ALSO, for many modules the assignment has multiple parts, and ALL parts are to be addressed in the introduction.

· The conclusion is a recap of what is in the paper.  It should not include new information it is simply a summary of the paper.  If people read nothing but the conclusion, they should be able to say generally what the paper is about.   The concluding section should be labeled – conclusion. And, as in the intro, do NOT write stating what you have written.

· OUTLINE: You should get into the habit of creating an outline before you write.  If you just can’t get yourself to write one before you write, you should try to outline your paper after it is complete. Academic papers need to be well-organized and follow a logical flow.  Outlines really help you clarify your thinking.   Good writing is good thinking!  Before you begin your papers, work on your overall conceptualizati
