Personal Social Ecological Health Map Analysis With Narrated Content Assignment 2 – AU.
Task description :-
Students are to present a personal social-ecological health map in PowerPoint poster format (1 poster size slide in total) with narrated discussion which clearly articulates an evidence-based analysis of their own personal social-ecological health history.
The Power Point poster should be based around the social-ecological model of health example below. The purpose of the personal social-ecological map analysis is for students to identify the multitude of factors which impact their health and well being narrative. In essence to connect life to learning.
Students are to keep in mind that a PowerPoint poster requires a different approach and structure to traditional essay assignment pieces. Only include key elements/findings in dot point format/short sentence like explanation on slides and expand on these points in more depth and detail in the narrated discussion component.
Careful consideration should be given to the design and layout of your personal social-ecological health map so that it is interesting and visually pleasing for your reader.
Students are to include photographs from their personal lives for context and to support written material in the Power Point poster.
Students are encouraged to adopt a critical insightful and reflective approach in unpacking and discussing their own social and ecological health map. A thorough and objective dissection of your personal history will enrich your assignment and will better support your overall understanding of the social and contextual determinants of health.
We do understand that this process may be triggering and confronting for some students however we also feel the process will be illuminating and therapeutic for others. We can assure you that assignment marking is carried out ‘blind’ using student numbers only and your personal information will be kept confidential (notwithstanding the safety considerations outlined below).
I am happy for students to tackle this assignment in one of the following two ways depending on their personal circumstances)…
Involves students demonstrating their knowledge of how health issues can impact at all levels of the social ecological health model.
Students who select this option will choose one personal health issue and provide discussion and evidence of how that health issue impacts (either positively of negatively) across all 4 layers of the social ecological model or how elements within the social-ecological health model impact or exacerbate the identified health issue.
For example :- A cancer diagnosis and how it can impact health at the individual relationship community or societal level and/or how elements within each layer (eg genetics at the individual layer) impact influence the cancer diagnosis. Students can obviously address multiple health-related impacts (either positively or negatively) within each layer of the model.
Students can obviously address multiple factors within each layer of the model from which to discuss their overarching health issue, however I would suggest a maximum of 2 elements per layer of the model total of 8 all up to achieve the required depth of discussion within the identified word count and time frame Students can choose to discuss either past current or future impacts or a combination of these
Involves students demonstrating their knowledge of how each layer of the social-ecological health model can impact health contribute to health consequences either positively or negatively.
Students who select this option will choose multiple personal health factors issues experiences consequence which can be related to influenced by each individual layer of the social-ecological model of health individual relationship community or societal.
Conversely elements within each layer of the model may contribute to exacerbate those identified health issues.
For example under individual factors the student may wish to discuss their substance use and associated health impacts eg on weight or how genetics as an individual level factor influences substance use. Under relationship factors they may wish to explore poor mental health as a consequence of bullying in their work place. Under community factors they may wish to explore their improved fitness as a result of moving to an area with more bike paths and under societal factors they may wish to explore the impact of health policy eg closing the gap on them and their community if they identify as Indigenous.
Students can obviously address multiple health-related issues within each layer of the model however I would suggest a maximum of 2 health issues per layer of the model total of 8 all up to achieve the required depth of discussion within the identified word count and time frame).
Students can choose to discuss either past, current or future impacts or a combination of these
It is important to note however that students should not include information/photographs pertaining to illegal activity which may impact their potential for registration as a registered nurse.
