Create a budget using MS Excel or Word. Review the Simple Budget Sheet in chapter 10 (Figure 10.2) in the course text book. Use this as an example: https://www.cdc.gov/workplacehealthpromotion/tools-resources/pdfs/sample_worksite_health_budget_508.pdf
(Links to an external site.) Instructions Identify resources (personnel, instructional materials, and equipment) for your program and research what actual costs are according to the current year and for your location. This means you will need to look up salaries and costs on Google / Indeed etc. Refer to chapter 10 to help you select program resources. Budget needs to clearly show where money is being spent in the program. Include everything that is needed to successfully implement your program. Be complete and thorough. You have up to $250,000 for one year of planning and implementation of your program. Step 1: Create a program budget in a Word table. Break down each cost in this format: Budget Step 2: List the total program cost. Example: total cost to implement the program: $44,395 and then divide the total cost by how many program participants you have (example: $44,395 / 50 participants= $887.90). Cost per participant: $887.90 Step 3: In one written paragraph, explain and justify any budget items that need explanation. Please write this paragraph in third person. For instance, why did you decide to create instructional materials in-house? If your instructional materials are from an outside source, where did you find them and how did you choose them? Is there a program fee – why or why not? What items were donated, and from where? Budget items to consider (not a complete list!): Materials and Supplies: Health communication items (flyers, handouts, billboards, etc) Miscellaneous: Marketing and advertising, travel money for program staff. Gas money, car, flights, etc. Equipment: Workshop office materials (binders, pencils, notebooks, etc) Health Education Materials: anything needed for intervention (Zika kits, jump ropes, BMI calculators, etc) Incentives for program participants (free water bottles, snacks, FitBits, etc) Rent: for office space Wages: Janitorial services Refer back to your Intervention Matrix – what will you need to complete these activities? In order to complete this correctly, you need to consider how many program participants you will have, and the length (timeline) of your program.
An intervention is an activity (or set of activities) that help to achieve the outcomes stated in your goals and objectives. Common Strategies in Health Education and Health Promotion: health communication, health education, health policy/enforcement , environmental change, health-related community service, community mobilization Health Education and Health Communication both are required for your intervention Health communication strategies inform people (brochure on skin cancer) Health education provide learning experiences, knowledge and skills in a formal educational setting (CPR classes) Provide both health communication and health education in your Program Plan. Example: Explain the steps of a breast self-exam (BSE) to participants, and then hand them a BSE shower card as a reminder of how to complete the steps at home. Health communication strategies are designed to inform and influence individual and community decisions to influence health. Most interventions include health communication strategies and it is a required component of your intervention. Health communication is useful in reaching many goals and objectives, so look back at your goals and objectives and consider how you can achieve them using health communication. Other Strategies to Consider Health-related Community Service: include services, tests, treatments, or care to improve the health in the priority population. Examples include Health Risk Assessments, low-cost flu shots, bio-metric screenings Community Mobilization: include community organizing, community building, advocacy. Examples include lobbying for healthier school lunches Behavior Modification: include techniques to help individuals change behavior. Examples include keeping journals / logs of behavior (smoking cessation log). Health Policy: include executive orders, laws, and ordinances. Examples include maintenance of sidewalks and seat belt laws. Environmental Change: includes creating health-enhancing environments. Examples include improved access to health services, smoke-free workplaces, bike paths. Prevention Methods Primary prevention aims to prevent disease or injury before it ever occurs (immunization against infectious diseases) Secondary prevention aims to reduce the impact of a disease or injury that has already occurred. This is done by detecting and treating disease or injury as soon as possible to halt or slow its progress (daily, low-dose aspirins and/or diet and exercise programs) Tertiary prevention aims to soften the impact of an ongoing illness or injury that has lasting effects. This is done by helping people manage long-term, often-complex health problems and injuries (cardiac or stroke rehabilitation programs)
