CMM81002 Diabetes Self-management Education Theory and Practice 2020
Diabetes group education session – Plan
Assessment 2, 3 and 4 of this unit are interrelated and involve the development of a diabetes group education session. The diabetes group education session you create will be a 5 minute video which you will record using Screencast-O-Matic. The three-interrelated assessments of this unit include the following:
Assessment 2 – Diabetes group education session – Plan
Assessment 3 – Diabetes group education session – Video recording Assessment 4 – Diabetes group education session – Reflection
Assessment 2 requires you to plan a diabetes group education session and write a scientific evidence based report which outlines your plan.
Your group education session must address a problem or issue that is associated with one of the ADEA seven self-care behaviours. You are required to analyse the issue that is associated with the self-care behaviour within the context of a determinants of health model. Your education session must include creative elements and learning strategies that are appropriate for your target audience. Your report should also include an evaluation plan which describes the methods you could use to evaluate the effectiveness of your session.
Note: The purpose of this assessment is to develop a group diabetes education session that could be delivered to people who are living with diabetes. Please do not develop a presentation to deliver to people who care for people with diabetes.
Follow the four steps below to plan your diabetes education session:
Step 1. Identify your topic
Select one of the ADEA seven self-care behaviours and consider why this behaviour may be difficult for someone with diabetes to follow. Analyse the issues you identify within the context of a determinants of health model. What are the underlying causes of the issues? Can your diabetes education session improve personal skills and impact in some way on the underlying determinants? What is the purpose of your diabetes education session? Ensure your topic is specific and can be covered in a 5 minute session. The topic of your education session needs to address one of the underlying causes of the issues.
Step 2. Identify your target group
Consider who your target audience will be. What are the needs and expectations of the group? What are their values, attitudes and beliefs? What are their learning preferences? Consider why the topic is of relevance to the target group. Use scientific evidence to support and justify the target group you have selected. Define your target audience by describing the key characteristics of your group including: gender, age, ethnicity and cultural characteristics, and type of diabetes.
Step 3. Goal, objectives and lesson plan
What is the overarching goal of your diabetes education session? What are the specific objectives that you want to achieve from the session? What information will you include in the education session? How will you make the education session appropriate to the needs of your target audience? Consider how health behaviour theory has influenced your session development? Your lesson plan needs to include enough detail so that a colleague could pick up your plan and do the presentation for you. Consider the learning strategies best suited to the objectives, target group and online environment. What resources do you need to run the session?
Step 4. Evaluation plan
How will you know your session has been successful? What criteria will you use to measure success? How will you know if your session objectives have been met? Consider the type of evaluation you will use to determine the effectiveness of your session.
NOTE: you are not required to provide any evaluation tools/ surveys in this report.
• Submit your assignment via TURNITIN (see link on Blackboard in ‘Assessment 2’ folder)
• Word count: 2000 words.
It is an important academic and practical skill to be able to communicate succinctly. It is expected that students will adhere to the word limits and not exceed the prescribed limit by more than 500 words including in-text citations and the reference list. Except in previously approved circumstances, appendices should not be included to accommodate extra words. All text included in the assessment will be included in the word count (as determined by Turnitin).
In circumstances in which the word count (plus 500 words) is exceeded, the Assessment will not be graded and the work will be returned to the student. The student will have 48-hours to resubmit their work. No penalty will be prescribed solely because the written work is under the prescribed word count of an assessed piece of work.
