In this assessment, you will analyze communicable diseases within the community, state, and nation. You will evaluate the epidemiology and the nurse’s role in using evidence-based data to develop methods to mitigate disease in the community. You will also develop the teaching materials for and deliver the educational program you developed in Part II of the CSLO 1 assessment.

Part 1: Nursing Student Presentation on Infection Control

Understanding diseases present within the community allows public health nurses to prioritize health promotion and disease prevention strategies.

Explore the Healthy People 2030 website.

Review the Healthy People 2030 Objectives and Measures.

Review the Healthy People 2030 Leading Health Indicators.

Assume you have been asked by the nursing supervisor at the community health clinic at which you work to research infectious disease trends as they relate to public health program planning and promotion. She wants you to prepare a presentation that will be presented to nursing students at the local branch of the statewide university system. The presentation will focus on infection control.

Develop an 18- to 20-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation, with speaker notes, that analyzes infectious diseases by:

  • Defining epidemiology, outbreak, incidence, and prevalence
  • Evaluating the role of nursing within epidemiology
  • Evaluating current infectious diseases locally, statewide, and nationally
  • Associating 3 of the most current infectious diseases with Healthy People 2030 objectives
  • Analyzing evidence-based practices aimed at reducing infectious diseases
  • Explaining health promotion techniques that can be used to manage infectious and communicable diseases in populations

Note: The slides themselves should only contain essential information and as little text as possible. Do not design a slide presentation made up of long bullet points. Your speaker notes convey the details you would give if you were presenting. See the Create Speaker Notes section of the PowerPoint 2013 Training video for more help.

Cite a minimum of 3 scholarly sources.

Include an APA-formatted reference page for in-text citations and references.

Part II: Teaching Project

In this assignment, you will develop a teaching project identified in the CSLO 1 Part II Assessment. Follow the steps delineated below.

Step 1: 

Develop your teaching project identified in the CSLO 1 Part II Assessment into a community education curriculum.  

  • Determine which variables should be included in your curriculum to address the identified public health conditions.  
  • Determine which resources and materials you will need for teaching the curriculum.  
  • Determine which communication method and health promotion technique should be used to deliver your curriculum.  

Step 2: 

Develop and prepare the curriculum, and identify all elements you would use.

  • Develop all materials needed to properly educate the identified agency population regarding the identified public health or communicable disease issue.
  • Develop a method for assessment of the success of the educational curriculum with the identified population.

Step 3: 

Write a 500-word summary of the educational curriculum.

Introduction

Communicable diseases include several emerging and re-emerging infections that are spread rapidly. They are the second leading cause of death globally, causing severe human suffering and significant economic loss. Examples of infectious diseases include TB, STDs, and malaria. Approximately 26% of deaths globally and 30% of the global burden of diseases are attributed to infectious diseases. Therefore, global collaboration development must be established based on surveillance networks. While no single agency can guarantee health safety, international agencies, government agencies, and individuals must collaborate to provide the necessary expertise. This paper aims to discuss A SWOT of government and local agencies concerning infectious and chronic diseases, issues affecting local agencies, and a teaching project that can be implemented to address the issue.

Government Bodies that Address Communicable and Chronic Diseases

CDC is a national health protection agency whose focus is to protect the American people from health and safety threats. The CDC’s mission is to ensure that they protect and save lives. Therefore, the organization must perform a SWOT analysis concerning its mission. The agency’s technology innovation is its core strength (Center for Disease Control, 2022). The health system technologies available within the agency ensure that disease surveillance, laboratory capacity, and operational research are conducted thoroughly, ensuring that the information that reaches that patient has been proven. The organization also has weaknesses, including financial management (Center for Disease Control, 2022). The financial management capabilities of the CDC have failed to keep up with the pace aligning to its mission and funding growth. The threats presented by the external environment are antibiotic resistance from certain bacteria and fungi, which makes the organization incur extra costs in research.

The world health organization is an international agency under the united nation responsible for international public health. A SWOT analysis is crucial within the organization to ensure that it still relates to its mission and objective—the major strength of WHO is its partnerships. The organization partners with several other organizations to ensure it achieves its goals (World Health Organization, 2022). The agency also faces several challenges, including financial deficits, which lead to the failure To control and prevent communicable diseases (Georgieva, 2021). A major threat affecting the organization is global pandemics like the recent COVID-19 pandemic, which shifts its focus from communicable disease mitigation strategies to the current pandemic.
