This is an opportunity to create a document of your own design with the intention of teaching laypeople in the country you selected and that addresses the chosen health issue.
Review the examples that are available in the Instructional Materials folder for Module 6. Use the samples and any other health education materials from the clinical setting, in the community, or online as resources
Choose the type of educational material you wish to design. It may be a patient education pamphlet, a poster, or a fact sheet that addresses a defined educational need of laypeople in relation to the chosen health issue. Remember you are working with individuals in the selected country.
The following audience characteristics must be addressed in the educational material you are creating.
Adults in the country you selected in Module 1 (or revised by Module 3).
English is the second language of these adults
The adults are laypeople
Address the following items.
The purpose of the pamphlet/poster/fact sheet is clear
Use visuals when appropriate and make sure the visuals are appropriate for the purpose you have specified
Use language appropriate for the identified audience (remember that material for the general US population needs to be between the 6th and 8th grade reading level).
Avoid inclusion of items that might frighten or upset the layperson but make sure the document is informative
Make sure that the educational document is only one (1) page. Documents that are more than one (1) page will receive an immediate five (5) point deduction.
SAVE your work in a pdf file to ensure that formatting does not change the size of the document from one (1) to two (2) pages
