Demonstrate an understanding of equity, social justice and the epidemiology of health and disease across different population groups in a global context. 3. Critically analyse the significance to nursing practice of (i) the social determinants of health; (ii) the health impacts of climate change and environmental degradation; (iii) availability, accessibility, acceptability, affordability, and cultural appropriateness of health service provision. 4. Construct innovative, person-centred solutions to global health issues through the application of evidence-based theory, reflection critique and academic literacy skills.   This assessment enables students to work towards developing the following graduate attributes: • Critical, creative, thinkers who can integrate and apply knowledge and relevant skills, including research and digital literacy skills, to analyse and evaluate ideas, concepts, theories and problems, and offer insights, innovative approaches and solutions; • Effective communicators and collaborators who actively and respectfully lead, listen, reflect, discuss and negotiate in order to work productively with a range of individuals and groups, including professional teams; • Ethical, engaged professionals and citizens who engage in, non-discriminatory, safe practices and consider the local, global, social, economic, legal and environmental influences on, and impact of, their attitudes and actions; • Culturally capable individuals who are self-aware and sensitive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledges and perspectives, equitable and respectful of diversity and multiculturalism, and can apply these capabilities in their professional practice.     Task detail Communicable diseases, such as HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, viral hepatitis and neglected tropical diseases cause over 4 million deaths globally per year (World Health Organisation, 2020).   Health literacy is defined by the World Health Organisation “as the cognitive and social skills which determine the motivation and ability of individuals to gain access to, understand and use information in ways which promote and maintain good health” (2020). This goes beyond the concept of health education and encourages individuals and communities to take action towards their own health and wellbeing.   To complete this task, you are required to develop a plan for a health literacy strategy incorporating interdisciplinary teamwork (not just nurses but other health care teams, and/or non-health science teams). This strategy must be targeted towards a communicable disease faced by a particular population of your choice. The selected disease may be HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, viral hepatitis, neglected tropical diseases or another communicable disease (select one disease only). DO NOT discuss COVID-19 as this is being covered extensively in other courses.     1. Health Literacy Project Plan     500 words +/-10% Use headings Including: a) Topic: a communicable disease concern and rationale for choosing the communicable disease supported by evidence from the literature. (communicable disease – provide a rationale for selecting this – supported by literature) b) Population: target population for the project and rationale for the chosen target population including issues relating to equity and social justice. c) Delivery: method of project delivery and rationale for why the method of the delivery was chosen, with evidence of best practice examples. (select a method to deliver the project and provide a rationale for why this method was chosen)   Topic: Communicable disease Definition used for communicable disease: “Infectious diseases (also known as communicable diseases) are caused by infectious agents and can be passed from one person or animal to another. Transmission can occur directly (through contact with bodily discharge), indirectly (for example, by sharing a drinking glass) or by means of vectors (such as mosquitoes). They are caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi or their toxic products. Examples of these communicable diseases include coronavirus, malaria, influenza and chickenpox.” (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 2020)   Interdisciplinary team Professionals from a variety of health and/or non-health science related disciplines Potential participants • Nurses: Registered; Enrolled; Assistant • Doctors • Allied health professionals: Physiotherapist; Occupational therapist • Healthcare workers: Aboriginal healthcare workers • Local council workers • Translators • Community liaisons   Audience – consider who the health literacy strategy is aimed at Health literacy is defined by the World Health Organisation “as the cognitive and social skills which determine the motivation and ability of individuals to gain access to, understand and use information in ways which promote and maintain good health” (2020). This goes beyond the concept of health education and encourages individuals and communities to take action towards their own health and wellbeing.   2. Deliverable Choose a presentation style which suits your topic, population, and your capabilities. Be creative. Must be relevant to the population demographics. Potential ideas: • Poster – this can be done as a single power point slide • Infographic • Video (consider the size limit) • Animation • Game Audio/ video word limit 4 minutes   Referencing and citations • APA 6th or 7th • 6 scholarly sources – 6years or less • include in-text citations in the body of your work. Each new point or piece of evidence must be attributed (via in-text citation) to the source. Information sources • Look at who is uploading the information • When was the information written or reviewed • Where is the information coming from • Why does the site exist – is it selling something • Is the information evidence-based   IntraHealth International.
