Nutrition education program on management of overweight among the city dwellers in Dallas Texas

 

 

Step 1A: Issues and intended audience

 

Describe the demographics of your audience (e.g., age, subgroup, ethnicity) and the location of the site.

 

 The audience of this program would compromise of city dwellers from Dallas city in Texas. For conveniences, the program would target mainly the schools and key organizations situated in the city. This is because it is possible to reach more people when the program is administered through institutions. Despite the fact that the program is designed for every city dweller, the students and the working class would be the major target because they constitute the most. 

 

 

 

Step 1 Worksheets                                                      Analyze issues and needs to state program behavioral goals

Analyze the priority health issues for your audience.

Research. What does scientific research

suggest as the major health issues for this audience?

 

Policy. What do governmental guidelines recommend as priority health issues?

 

 Scientifically, the target group for this program has been found to be vulnerable to many non-communicable diseases associated with overweight such as diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. This is because they tend to eat junked and processed food and exercise less, which makes them increase in weight beyond the expected target. The scientific research shows that if students and middle class individuals are not educated on how to live a healthy lifestyle, then the chances of them becoming obese at later stages are high. Consequently, students and the middle class are the key targets that need nutrition education that would help them adopt a healthy lifestyle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

+

 

 

Government has been striving to encourage the city dwellers to remain physically active and to avoid consumption of processed and high-caloric food. The government has banned consumption of some drinks which are known to increase the weight faster.

+

 

+

Audience. What are specific health issues and needs related to the intended audience (from objective and subjective data)?

 

Organization. What does the organization and/or funding source state as key health priorities to address?

 

 There are two specific health issues and needs related to the intended audience. The first issue is that the intended audiences are physically inactive yet it is expected to be the most physically active groups. The second issue is that the intended audience are considered to be the major consumers of fast foods, which are high caloric  and predispose one to overweight 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

+

 

 

Some of the key health priorities to address the issues include nutrition education and sensitization of the targeted audience on how to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Another priority is to facilitate physical activity by encouraging the use of bicycle and building the walking lanes alongside the roads to encourage city dwellers to engage themselves in physical activity through walking.

 

 

 

Step 1 Worksheets                                                      Analyze issues and needs to state program behavioral goals

Determine one or two priority health issues for the program to address. From the issues you identified, prioritize based on greatest need, whether education can help, the importance to the audience, and importance to the organization.

 The major priority health issues that would be address is the high level of physical inactivity among the city dwellers. The other health issue that would be addressed in the unhealthy dietary lifestyle adopted by most of the city dwellers. Education is considered the major intervention measures that can help change such behaviors for good. Achieving the set goals would ensure that the audiences are not predisposed to overweight and related non-communicable diseases. The organization would also ensure that the population is healthy and hence would save the cost of managing non-communicable diseases.

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1B: Contributing behaviors or practices

 

Identify the behaviors or practices that contribute to the priority health issues.

Nutrition

research literature

 

Monitoring data

or consumer surveys

 

Information from

intended audience

 

 Sources indicate that poor dietary practices adopted by most of the students and working class population are major contributory factors to overweight and obesity. Existing literature also indicates that lack of enough physical activities leads to the accumulation of fats, which therefore encourage overweight and obesity (Pinto 1995). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

+

 

 

Monitoring data concurs with the hypotheses in the documented literature sources. This is because the data reveals that the working-class have no time to balance their diet and hence opt to fast and processed foods. Monitoring data also indicate that the students and working class are used to using vehicles instead of walking even when they are going for short distances. This encourages physical inactivity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

+

 

 

Significant percentage of the intended audience admits that they consume fast food as the major  food because of its tasty and accessibility. They also admit that the often walk less and instead use vehicles and at the same time, most of them indicated that they watch videos most often.

 

 

Step 1 Worksheets                                                      Analyze issues and needs to state program behavioral goals

List the top behaviors or practices that contribute to the priority health issues. Then rate each issue on importance, modifiability, feasibility, and desirability.

Step 1C: Behavioral goals

 

Choose one or a few behavioral goals from the list above to be the focus of your program. State the selected behavioral goals and provide justification for the selection of your focus behaviors or community practices.

 

 One of the behaviors that would be a target for the program is to increase the level of physical activity among the city dwellers. The nutrition education would sensitize the audience about the need for high level of physical activity. It will inform them why low level of physical activity is harmful to their health (Keating, Guan, Castro Pinero , Bridges 2005). Some of the selected behavioral goals that would be expected include high utilization of pedestrian paths or lanes, use of bicycles instead of cars, reduction in the time taken watching Television, utilization of recreation facilities such as fields in activities such as running, playing football and any kind of exercise (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 1997).

Another behavior that would be a target for program is healthy dietary practices. Some of the selected behavioral goals that would be expected include decrease in consumption of fast food, refined foods, soft and alcoholic drinks and increase in consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole meals such as brown bread and whole cereals.

Step 2 Worksheets                                                            Identify personal and environmental mediators of change

In Step 2, you will find out as much as possible about why audience members make the food and activity choices they do as well as what might motivate, facilitate, and support them to take on the goal behaviors. Theory provides you with the framework to ask the questions and organize the answers.

At the end of the Step 2 worksheets, you should have the following products for Steps 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, and 2E:

Step 2A:      Description of the sociocultural environment in which your audience lives.

Step 2B:      List of current behaviors, practices, policies, and environmental factors that are assets for the audience’s achievement of the program goal behaviors.

Step 2C:      List of thoughts, feelings, and skills that are rooted in theory that potentially mediate the audience’s motivation for and ability to achieve the program’s goal behaviors or community practices.

Step 2D:      List of potential actions for the program to take to provide environment and policy supports for the audience’s achievement of the program goal behaviors.

Step 2E:      Description of audience characteristics and list of resource considerations that will help you plan the practical aspects of your program.

Use these worksheets as guides to help you identify the personal mediators and environmental determinants of change. Cite information sources in the text and add references to the bibliography at the end of the step. Electronic versions of these worksheets are available at http://nutrition.jbpub.com/education/2e/. If you are unable to access the worksheets electronically, you can write onto this blank worksheet or create a text document that uses the same flow of information.

 

 

Step 2A: Audience’s sociocultural environment

 

Describe the social and cultural environment of the audience with respect to your goal behaviors. Consider the following questions: What is their life stage (e.g., teen, senior, mother), and how does this stage influence their eating and activity patterns? What is their living situation, and how does this influence their eating and activity patterns? What are the cultural beliefs that influence their eating and activity patterns? How does their lifestyle (e.g., work, family, recreation, social obligations) influence their ability to make healthy food and activity choices? How do their religious beliefs influence their eating and activity patterns?

 

 As stated, the audience for the program would comprise of young adults, which constitute high school and college students and those working in the companies within the Dallas City. This is a group of population that is vulnerable to the overweight because they are in stage where they have freedom to do many things. Their stage influences their eating and activity patterns in many ways. Firstly, they are in a stage where parties are valued so much and hence they are bound to eat and drink unhealthy food. Most of them also live independently and hence they have no parental guidance and ends up eating carelessly (Torres, and Nowson 2007). Culture also has major influence on their behaviors. Most of them believe that getting fatter is a sign of health and wealth and hence are tempted to increase weights. Their lifestyle, as stated, tends to predispose them to unhealthy eating because they like parties so much.

Step 1 Worksheets                                                      Analyze issues and needs to state program behavioral goals

Before you design any nutrition education intervention, whether it is a few sessions or a larger program with several components, it is important to determine your intervention focus and identify your intended primary audience. When those have been determined, you will need detailed information on the behaviors and practices that contribute to the issue or problem you have selected as your intervention focus. Step 1 worksheets will help you conduct assessments to obtain the information you will need.

Think of yourself as a detective as you work through these worksheets. You are trying to find out as much as you can to determine which core behaviors or behavioral goals will be the targets for your educational sessions.

The information you collect may be quite extensive, depending on the scope and duration of your intervention, and will vary by category. Cite information sources (e.g., journal article, government report, observation, interview) used in the worksheet in a bibliography at the end of this step.

At the end of the Step 1 worksheets, you should have products for Steps 1A, 1B, and 1C as follows:

Step 1A:      Health issues or needs (one or two) and primary intended audience for the nutrition education intervention. Examples are “overweight in teenagers” or “low rates of breastfeeding in a low-income audience.”

Step 1B:      High-priority behaviors contributing to the selected issues. A set of one to a few nutrition-related behaviors or community practices that contribute to the health issue(s) that you identified.

Step 1C:      Statement of the program’s behavioral or action goals. The behavioral or action goals describe the purpose or behavioral outcomes for the program in terms of behaviors or community practices.

Step 5 Worksheets for Individual-Level Components                                          Designing activities for mediators

In Step 5, you use your theoretical model, philosophy of nutrition education, and nutrition education program objectives to create (1) educational plans for the individual-level components and (2) environmental supports plans for environmental/ policy components.

These pages of the Step 5 worksheets are devoted to designing educational plans for activities directed at individuals, referred to here as the individual-level components. Generally, the primary individual-level component consists of one or more group sessions. (You can also use these worksheets to design other individual-level components, such as newsletters and media-related activities.)

You should have one educational plan for each group session you design (or newsletter or other component directed at individuals).

At the end of the Step 5 worksheets for the individual-level components, you will have the following products:

Step 5A:      General educational objectives for each session or series of sessions directed at the same behavioral goal

Step 5B:      An overall design plan for the session in the form of a matrix that links mediators, objectives, and activities

Step 5C:      A narrative educational plan that translates the matrix into a form ready for teaching or presenting

Use these worksheets as an organizational guide to help you design your educational plan and translate theory mediators into educational activities. Electronic versions of these worksheets are available at http://nutrition.jbpub.com/education/2e. If you are unable to access the worksheets electronically, you can write
onto this blank worksheet or create a text document that uses the same flow of information.

Step 5B: Designing the educational plan: matrix format

 

Design your educational (or lesson) plan in matrix format. Write specific objectives for the mediators in your theory model (Step 3). Identify the learning domain and level for each objective. Then write the theory-based strategy you will employ to address the mediator and create educational activities that will be meaningful, interesting, and appropriate for your audience and will operationalize strategy.

Sequence your educational activities based on the events of instruction. After you have completed creating activities for each of the mediators in your theory model, go back through the design matrix and carefully identify each of the strategies/activities as to where it should fall in a sequence suitable for implementing with your audience. Label each activity as to whether it will be used to (A) gain attention, (S) present stimulus or new material, (G) provide guidance and practice, or (C) apply and close the session. These are referred to as the “Events of Instruction” or “EoI.”

Carefully re-order the matrix. If the mediators and the related activities you have created are not at first listed in your matrix in the properly sequenced order (i.e., gain attention to apply and close), then carefully re-order the matrix so all activities as well as mediators and objectives are in the proper sequenced order ready to use to create your educational plan or teaching plan.

Step 5C: Educational plan

 

Write a narrative educational plan, based on your design matrix, that you will actually use to deliver your session. Think of a catchy title that will be meaningful to your audience. Make sure that activities are sequenced based on order of instruction. For each educational activity create a heading with a title and the mediator(s) addressed. Then write a detailed procedure for the activity. It is customary to place an overview or outline of activities and a materials list at the beginning of the teaching plan.
