In this Assignment, you will collaborate with your peers and develop a strategy with the aim of preventing obesity in children and youth in a community setting (see the reading by Flynn et al., 2006 and by Patton et al., 2009, to help your thinking on this issue).
Over the next three Modules (3, 4, and 5), you will be completing a Group Assignment, which you will do in collaboration with three other students in your class. You may find the tips for group work described at https://student.unsw.edu.au/groupwork helpful. Only one 2,000-word Assignment should be submitted through Turnitin (i.e., each group submits one Assignment to which all members of the group have contributed).
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 leader should submit a 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 Skype, telephone, and/or email or 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 needs to be involved? Who are the stakeholders that you will need 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 consuma
To write 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. a. Use subheadings to describe what you will do at each of these stages. b. Where does each phase fit into your timelines? c. 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 2000-word paper that utilises your combined professional judgement and the evidence provided in the Learning Resources on Modules 3, 4, and 5 to design an obesity prevention strategy.
