Direct Care Project Part 2
Air Quality: Planning the Presentation Instructions
Directions: Create a PowerPoint presentation recommending the use of the Air Quality Flag Program to an organization using the template provided. See the assignment directions and tutorial for suggestions and best practices. Review the week’s readings prior to starting on your presentation and understand the Air Quality Flag Program before starting this assignment.
1. Identify an organization that could benefit from the Air Quality Flag Program.
a. Ideas: schools, churches, nursing homes, hospitals, daycares (places where vulnerable populations may have outdoor activities)
b. Reach out to the organization’s leadership to set up a time you can present your findings and information about the Air Quality Flag Program.
i. You are encouraged to have a few organizations in mind in case of rejection or conflicting schedules.
c. You are only required to have one leadership member present for presentation, but more are encouraged and welcome. If more than one person in leadership is interested, you can present to all at the same time or individually. You are encouraged to set a date and time(s) for your presentation for some time Saturday of Week 5 through Saturday of Week 6 to allow ample time to complete the Week 6 Part 4 Evaluation assignment.
2. Conduct additional research related to air quality and the problem as identified in your Community Health Assessment and Diagnosis assignment findings.
3. Download the PowerPoint Presentation Template.
4. Create a PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes (8-15 slides not including introduction or references) for the organizational leadership that includes:
· Community description
· Basic demographic data (i.e. population, size, education, poverty levels, etc.)
· Relevant epidemiological data from Community Assessment and Diagnosis assignment.
· Including lung disease data in your community. This data should relate to the vulnerable populations that the organization cares for. Example: If you are presenting to a school, then childhood asthma cases are relevant. If you are presenting to a nursing home, then COPD data is relevant, if you are presenting to a church, then all data may be relevant.
· Problem description
· Comprehensive overview of pollution and air quality concerns.
· Include any contributing factors specific to your community (e.g. location—is it near a factory or something known for releasing toxins? Are there agricultural activities nearby? Do people leave their cars running during hot or cold seasons that emit exhaust in areas were vulnerable populations are outside? Is there a landfill nearby?)
· Air Quality Flag Program description
· Elements of the program
· What is it?
· Outreach materials available? (available on website)
· How does it work?
· How could it be used in your selected organization to help your identified vulnerable population?
· How could the Air Quality Flag Program impact the problem?
· Community Resources
· Describe one community resource related to the lung disease(s) you described.
· Cover 4 A’s: affordability, accessibility, acceptability, availability for the resource
· Implications for practice
· Provide a comprehensive overview of the impact to the selected audience— school, church, nursing home, daycare, etc.
· What does this data mean for them?
· Use at least one scholarly reference as support
· How could the implementation of Air Quality Flag Program into their organization impact population health outcomes and vulnerable populations?
· Summary and importance to improving population health outcomes. Include:
· Community demographic and epidemiological data
· Program description
· Importance to improving population health outcomes
· Reference slide
· Minimum of 3 references. Should include references for Air Quality Flag Program, community data, and at least one scholarly source. Utilize more references as needed.
· Q&A slide
