Step 2. Click on “Browse Objectives by Topic” and choose an area of interest. ( I chose, in Populations, Children) You can use ANY of the segments (Health Conditions/Behaviors/Populations/Systems and Settings/Social Determinants)
Step 3.Then scroll in you area to further refine the AREA AND GOAL. (I chose Child and Adolescent Development) See how many areas there are to choose from!? You have many choices in all categories so have fun and find something you are passionate about! YOU DO NOT NEED TO PICK CHILDREN!! YOU CAN PICK FROM ANY AREA.
Step 4. Then I chose my goal in the children section, EMC 01 Improve the proportion of parents who use positive communication with their child.
THIS TOPIC WILL BE MY TOPIC FOR THE ENTIRE PRESENTATION.
THE ONE YOU CHOSE WILL BE YOUR TOPIC FOR THE ENTIRE SESSION. EACH WEEK YOU WILL EXPAND THE PROJECT.
FOR THE ASSIGNMENT you need to create 4 powerpoint slides:
1. A title slide with your name and topic.
2. Next slide with your AREA, SUBSET AND GOAL WITH NUMBER LISTED.
3. A slide with a background of Why is this important to health? You may need to look that up! for example, if your area was smoking you might look up “smoking and cancer” to get more data. You must have one fact why this is an important goal. How does it impact people? Why did you pick it?
For mine, I googled, “early communication and health” and found resources on why learning to communicate in childhood helps later health. If you pick, say STDs, you may google “rate of STDs” to show us how prevalent it is. If you pick mental health, you could site suicide rates or discuss how much mental health costs our economy. The choices are endless, just show us two examples of how YOUR CHOSEN problem impacts our health and society.
