Wellness Program Proposal

Health care initiatives focus on changing demographics and emerging health problems. Health care professionals need to develop skills in conducting gap analyses within their own communities, to design effective health education and wellness programs to address those gaps, and to remain mindful that effective care depends on the ability to build trust within the community being served.

For this assignment, you will develop a proposal for a wellness program that will help bridge the gaps in health care service delivery for the population you identified in your Windshield Survey assignment.

Use the Capella library and the Internet to find scholarly and professional resources that will help you design a wellness program for the health concern of your population. Find at least four resources to use in this assignment.

Requirements

Building on your Windshield Survey and Organizational Evaluation assignments, complete the following:

  • Design an evidence-based wellness program to address the primary health concern of the population that integrates:
    • Cultural considerations: Will you need to consult with someone from the population on how to approach the delivery of your program?
    • CAM, traditional medicine, holistic health, and spirituality considerations
    • Linguistic considerations: Will you need interpreters or translators for either written or oral presentations?
    • Educational considerations: What will be the best way to educate the population?
  • Describe how you will market or advertise the wellness program.
    • What are the benefits the program offers the population?
    • Will you need incentives to ensure participation and completion of the program?
  • Explain the ethical, legal, and economic factors that impact the health and wellness of the population. For example:
    • The ethical considerations (such as justice, non-malfeasance, and duty) that can affect preventative care and health promotion.
    • Local laws, federal laws, and the Affordable Health Care Act that can affect preventative care and health promotion.
    • The potential economic impact of clinical prevention and health promotion related to health disparities of your population.

The format for this assignment should be a professional proposal. If possible, ask about the format used for proposals in your organization and follow that. Follow current APA style for your in-text citations and references.

Additional Requirements

  • Length of paper: 5–7 double-spaced pages, not including a title page and reference page.
  • References: At least four current scholarly or professional resources.
  • Formatting: APA format for in-text citations and references.
  • Font: Times New Roman, 12 pt.
