Week 5 Health Literacy Program Plan Write a plan for the design of a health literacy program for public health/community that is geared toward adults and children utilizing technology. Include the following: What will you teach them? What type of educational technique will you utilize? Will you teach the adults and children together or separately? How will you manage the option you chose? Your health literacy program plan should be two to three pages in length. Compose it in APA format with a title page, introduction, conclusion, and references section. An abstract is not necessary. Cite one to two scholarly references in APA format. Examples of scholarly sources include professional journal articles and books obtained from library databases, national guidelines, and informatics organizations, published within the last five years.
Being an informed consumer of health information requires more than reading ability. People with limited health literacy often lack knowledge or have misinformation about the body and the causes of disease. Without this knowledge, they may fail to understand the relationship between lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise and health outcomes. People with limited health literacy skills may not know when or how to seek care.
Health information can overwhelm even persons with advanced literacy skills. Medical science progresses rapidly. What people may have learned about health or biology during their school years often becomes outdated, forgotten, or is incomplete. Moreover, health information provided in a stressful or unfamiliar situation is unlikely to be retained.
Strategies to build knowledge and improve health decisionmaking include:
Improve access to accurate and appropriate health information
Facilitate healthy decisionmaking
Partner with educators to improve health curricula
Healthcare and public health professionals can develop plain language health education materials that can be easily shared among practitioners. Health education materials should be both scientifically accurate and culturally appropriate. Develop partnerships among and across regions, audiences, and fields of interest to facilitate dissemination.
Health professionals and researchers may want to examine the impact of participatory action and empowerment research strategies for effective diffusion of health information at the community leve
