Context:
This assessment is aimed at developing the students understanding of the purpose and impact of public health/health promotion initiatives. By prescribing this assessment, students are able to build on their understanding of the importance of addressing the social determinants of health to improve health in disadvantaged and marginalised population groups. This assessment allows students to expand their knowledge of the social determinants of health. Students are able to develop their academic writing skills, as they are expected to express their ideas in a coherent and logical manner, while also enhancing their skills of investigation, through searching for reliable and credible information.
Instructions:
? Students are provided with the health promotion initiative ‘Strong Fathers, Strong Families’ (SFSF). This program was an Australian Government initiative that aimed to promote the role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander fathers, partners, grandfathers and uncles, and encourage them to actively participate in their children’s and families’ lives, particularly in the antenatal period and early childhood development years.
? Students will explore the aims and objectives of this program to identify the ‘social determinants of health’ (SDoH) that the program is targeting. Students will provide a detailed account that describes how targeting these SDoH will improve the health of this population group.
? It is expected that students will read the project thoroughly to identify at least three areas from the social, cultural, political, economic and environmental areas (SDoH) of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander life that is being targeted.
? Students will then search through the document provided and complete their own research for further information and write a 1000 word (+/- 10%) report that clearly and concisely explains how participants in the project will see improved health in themselves, their families and their community.
An example of information required:
1. Identify three specific social determinants; ie. housing, education, employment, sense of identity
2. Identify the target population group (the participants) of this particular part of the project; older men, young adults, fathers
3. List some of the activities that participants were involved in as part of this program;
i.e. cooking classes, music and dance activities including didgeridoo playing
4. Then explain how working on this social determinant will impact on the health of this group and the community. This section will require further research to provide evidential support and strength to the student’s opinion.
For example, when young Aboriginal men participate in cooking classes they learn about nutrition and healthy eating. This, in turn leads to improved nutrition and diet for his family. By improving the nutritional status of his children they will have less absent days from school, improving their literacy and numeracy skills. The greater impact is addressing the issue of low literacy levels in this population group.
