In this Assignment, you will collaborate with other peers and develop a strategy with the aim of preventing obesity in children and youth in a community setting.

Please note: To prevent social loafing, groups experiencing problems with the level of commitment of individual members are required to contact their course facilitator in the first instance. If problems persist, the group members can grade their colleagues accordingly on the Peer Evaluation Form (available on Blackboard). Marks may be deducted for individual members who do not live up to the expectations of the other group members.

Once you know the group you are in, work out the best way to communicate with your peers for the development of the Assignment (e.g., through zoom, Skype, telephone, and/or email, Google Docs or any other method).

To prepare for this assignment:

  1. What intervention/s would you like to run? Your choices should be supported by the published literature. For how long will the intervention run?
  2. Who are the stakeholders that you will need to involve to make this intervention successful?
  3. What would each of those people have to do? Who would be responsible for which project tasks (ie leadership, development or delivery of educational material, managing the budget and finances)?
  4. How much will the required resources cost? This can just be an estimate of the costs that will be involved. If you need to hire staff, estimate the amount of their time that you need (ie hours/days per week) and how much their salary would cost. Don’t forget consumables like paper for printing, and envelopes and stamps if needed. This is your estimated budget.

To prepare for this assignment:

  1. Briefly explain your intervention, and any research evidence that supports this as a good intervention.
  2. Explain how your intervention addresses primary, secondary, and/or tertiary prevention as a health promotion strategy.
  3. Explain the different phases of your strategy: planning, community engagement, implementation, management, evaluation and recommendations.
    1. Use subheadings to describe what you will do at each of these stages.
    2. Where does each phase fit into your timelines?
    3. Who needs to be involved in each phase, and what would they need to do?
  4. Include your list of costs and estimated budget.
  5. Conclude with recommendations about preventing obesity in children and youth.

The output will be a power point presentation with voice recorded over it for online students, that utilizes your combined professional judgement and the evidence provided in the Learning Resources on Modules 3, 4 to design an obesity prevention strategy.

Slide 2 

The introduction puts forward the intervention. The intervention chosen is a setup of a healthy restaurant. The main agenda of this intervention is to determine the prevention of obesity among youths and children who are quite attracted to the junk foods of restaurants. The intervention addresses to the primary, secondary as well as the tertiary prevention by devising policies on the basis of the ecological health model.  The targeted group for this intervention is children between 10-18 years and youths between 40-55 years.  The healthy local restaurant model has a high successful rate with the primary prevention is indicated a adopting the best models to induce a healthy diet.

Slide 3

This showcases the different phases of the strategy. Each of these processes involves a prevention strategy for obesity.

Slide 4

This is the first and the major step and thus would plan the proposal of the intervention in a systematic manner (Wilson, et al., 2003). His is done according to the ecological model and thus will plan step wise. The first plan is to encourage the individuals, then to prepare sites for the intervention, to take in lease restaurants as well as prepare a healthy diet to replace junk food items. 

Slide 5

The community engagement step is basically encouraging and encompassing the whole of the community for active participation into this intervention (Chen, Jyu-Lin, Wilkosz, & Ellen, 2014). The strategy encourages parents, children's, youth, government, local administration as well as the other restaurants to be active stakeholders of this intervention.    

Slide 6

The implementation process is also determined to set each steps of the intervention in a synchronized manner (Pandita, et al., 2016). The implementation step will advertise about the agenda and educate the maximum number of people with aims and the objectives of the agenda.

Slide 7

The management process takes a look upon the management of the whole scenario for the intervention (Lanigan, et al., 2010). It helps in managing each determined process of the strategy like fund collection, encouraging participation as well as green agriculture for healthy diet. 

Slide 8

The process of evaluation would determine the success rate of the intervention. The evaluation process would be more concerned with the factors that should be meet at a clear chance. The evaluation process would take a look upon the primary, second and the tertiary prevention as weather they are meet. It will seek that how successful is the prevention in case of children and youth and how well has been the whole process implemented.

Slide 9

The list of recommendations figures out the recommended vigilance that is to be prospected upon each strategy. It claims that the policies should be well checked and delivered as well as there should be a detailed recording of the prevention rate and how successful is the intervention. 

Slide 10

The timeline details the duration for each specific process which falls under the different strategies. The whole timeline is set in a duration of 8 months. The timeline shows that the maximum time period would be taken for raising the funds. Less time is required to draw the restaurant contracts and the food chart.

Slide 11

This table above lists the stakeholders who are to be an active participant the process of intervention. This includes the parents, children's as well as the youth’s whole will be the main agenda of the experiment. The project team, lead as well as the government and the groceries are indebted to the project.

Slide 12

This particular slide showcases the estimated cost required to figure out the whole process of intervention as well as the strategies to be followed to proclaim the intervention. The salary structure and the whole funding is detailed in the table.

Slide 13

This is the ecological health model used in the intervention procedure (Patrick, Rebecca, Kingsley, & Jonathan, 2019). The ecological health model is analyzed and adopted to synchronize the intervention strategies. The ecological model is based upon community factors, organizational factors as well as public factors.

Slide 14

Thus it is concluded that this particular model would certainly prevent obesity. It is recommended to implement this process for green production.
