Group Health Promotion Proposal Paper
The purpose of this assignment is to provide the learner an opportunity to design a health promotion proposal specific to your role specialization (primary care FNP).
Each group will write a scholarly paper that demonstrates graduate school level writing and critical analysis of existing nursing knowledge. The paper will be a minimum of 12 pages and maximum of 15 pages, using APA style.
Choosing Your Topic
Go to Healthy People 2030 (https://health.gov/healthypeople). Next click on the “Objectives and Data” tab and select a topic for your health promotion proposal. Select a specific objective from Healthy People 2030. For instance, if your topic area was “Older Adults” you may choose the following objective in the “Older Adults” section (click on the objectives tab):
- Reduce the rate of hospital admissions for diabetes among older adults — OA‑05
Based on this objective you would develop a more specific evidence-based intervention such as teaching older adults how to manage their diabetes.
