2 Prepare your written assignment (your Health Plan Review)

  • Introduction to your assignment and summary of the Health Plan
    Your introduction should explain the purpose of your assignment (aka the Health Plan review) and outline its structure. You should give a brief summary of the Health Plan and then tell the reader what priority area, at-risk groups and determinants you will be focusing on in your assignment.
    Example (rough notes only): The following assignment will focus on (state the Health Plan you’ll be focussing on, and add its citation in brackets afterwards)… This assignment will firstly provide an overview… The assignment will then detail … The following at-risk groups and three determinants of health … will then be critically analysed …
  • Description of the overall plan, the determinants of health and how they influence the population groups
    Your description should outline the plan (Victorian Public Health & Wellbeing Plan), what it is, who it is targeting, the main aims of the plan and what those aims hope to achieve. Explain in your own words how this plan will improve the health of specific Victorians and describe the at-risk groups mentioned in the plan as well as the relevance of the determinants of health to the wellbeing of the population groups targeted by the Health Plan. Remember here you need to introduce the determinants of health – explain what they are in your own words with supporting literature.
    NOTE: The Victorian Public Health & Wellbeing Plan needs to be referenced throughout this section.
    Example (rough notes only): The overarching aim of … is to … The plan focuses on the following key priority areas and target groups … Determinants of health are …. This plan acknowledges that determinants of health … Specific population groups … The effectiveness of this plan will be evaluated ….

    Choose one of the below priority areas (as outlined in the plan):

    • “Preventing violence and injury” or
    • “Tobacco free living”.
  • Describe the priority and the actions outlined in the plan (for example, what is your chosen priority, why is it a priority, and what are they planning to do?). Identify two at-risk groups (e.g. adolescents; adults; older adults) relating to this priority area. Describe why they are experiencing poorer health and wellbeing outcomes
    Nursing students can choose either priority but you must focus on Indigenous at-risk groups.
    NOTE: You should bring in supporting evidence in this section as well as in section (2.4).
  • Example (rough notes only): The priority are…. will de discussed in this section, with a focus on the two at-risk groups

  • Discussion of three relevant determinants of health
    Outline which 3 determinants you are focusing on (1 x social, 1 x biological and 1 x environmental) and detail how these determinants are linked to the priority area and the associated health outcomes for one (1) of the at-risk population groups you discussed above. Please ensure you choose 1 social, 1 biological and 1 environmental determinant as part of your discussion of 1 at-risk group.
    Example (rough notes only): The 3 determinants to be discussed include … they are linked to this prioirty area and at-risk group because…this group experiences ….health outcomes and these determinants impact this because…
    As a starting point to find relevant supporting evidence, access week 2 determinants resources, week 4 Indigenous health resources, week 7 and week 8. You should also engage with the resources from the Deakin library and appropriate government sites including current census data and AIHW.]
