Prior assignments have focused on the planning aspect of your public health project. For this assignment, you will now use the information and findings from your community needs assessment to complete the second phase of this project: development of a program/intervention implementation plan. Your program/intervention implementation plan will include: a description of the program, logic model outlining the intervention, implementation timeline and action plan, and a budget and budget justification for your intervention. Use the “Program Implementation Plan” template to complete this assignment

You are required to cite to three to five sources to complete this assignment. Sources must be published within the last 5 years and appropriate for the assignment criteria and public health content.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion. 

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. A link to the LopesWrite technical support articles is located in Class Resources if you need assistance.

Benchmark – Program Implementation Plan


Part 1 – Description of Program and Logic Model

Describe an evidence-based intervention based on your completed needs assessment. Your intervention should be population-based and informed by your chosen theory and SMART goals and objectives. Population-based interventions can be directed at the entire population within a community, the systems that affect the health of those populations, and/or the individuals and families within those populations known to be at risk. Use the Logic Model to design your proposed intervention.

1. Description of the Intervention

a. Describe the population-based, evidence-based program/intervention.

b. Discuss how the intervention will support improving the health issue for the target population.

2. Goal and Objectives

a. Goal:

b. Process Objectives (the activities to be completed in a specific time period):

c. Outcome Objectives (changes in knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, policy, environment systems, etc.):

3. Complete the Logic Model. Design your intervention using the template on the following page:

Inputs

Long-Term Outcomes

Intermediate Outcomes

Short-Term Outcomes

Outputs

Activities

Legend

Inputs: What resources do you need to make this happen? (e.g., staff, space, funding)

Activities: What are you going to do? (e.g., educate and establish partnerships)

Outputs: What will happen because of your activities? (e.g., 100 people trained)

Short-Term Outcomes: Immediate changes you expect to occur (e.g., changes in knowledge)

Intermediate Outcomes: (e.g., changes in behavior)

Long-Term Outcomes: How will this program help in the future (e.g., obesity prevention)?

Logic Model

Target Population (as identified by needs assessment):

Health issue affecting target population:

Theory or model used to inform an intervention:



Part 2 – Implementation Timeline and Action Plan

Develop a program timeline and action plan using a Gantt chart, depicting the key tasks, activities and people involved in the first 12 months (1 year) of implementing your p
