Prepare a patient teaching plan for your participant based on the information you discovered in your previous assignments. Present your plan using Microsoft PowerPoint.

·         Title slide (first slide): Include a title slide with your name and title of the presentation.

·         Introduction/Identification (two to three slides): Introduce a modifiable risk factor (diet, smoking, activity, etc.) that will be the focus of your presentation.

o    Identify at least one important finding you discovered in Milestone 1 that is associated with this risk factor.

o    Explain how this places your adult participant at increased risk for developing a preventable disease (obesity, Type II Diabetes, etc.), which is described.

o    List short and long-term goals.

·         Intervention (four to five slides): Choose one evidence-based intervention related to the modifiable risk factor chosen that has been shown to be effective at reducing an individual’s risk for developing the preventable disease.

o    Describe the intervention in detail.

o    Provide rationale to support the use of this intervention. Support your rationale with information obtained from one scholarly source as well as Healthy People 2020 ( ). Include any additional resources (websites, handouts, etc.) that you will share with your adult participant, if applicable.

·         Evaluation (three to four slides): Describe at least one evaluation method that you would use to determine whether your intervention is effective. Outcome measurement is a crucial piece when implementing interventions.

o    Describe at least one method (weight, lab values, activity logs, etc.) you would use to evaluate whether your intervention was effective.

o    Describe the desired outcomes you would track that would show whether your intervention is working.

o    Include additional steps to be considered if your plan proved to be unsuccessful.

·         Summary (one to two slides): Reiterate the main points of the presentation and conclude with what you are hoping to accomplish as a result of implementing the chosen intervention.

·         References (last slide): List the references for sources that were cited in the presentation.

·         Speaker notes: Share in detail how you would verbalize the content on each of the slides to the patient.

Remember, you are creating a patient teaching plan so be sure to include terms easily understood by the general population and limit your use of medical jargon. Slides should include the most important elements for them to know in short bullet-pointed phrases. You may add additional comments in the notes section to clarify information for your instructor.


·         Application: Use Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 (or later).

·         Length: The PowerPoint slide show is expected to be no more than 14 slides in length (not including the title slide and References list slide).

·         Submission: Submit your file by 11:59 p.m. Sunday end of Week 6.

·         Save the assignment with your last name in the file’s title: Example: Smith Patient Teaching Plan.

·         Late Submission: See the Policies under Course Home on late submissions.

·         Tutorial: For those not familiar with the development of a PowerPoint slideshow, the following link to the Microsoft website may be helpful. The Chamberlain Student Success Strategies (CCSSS) offers a module on Computer Literacy that contains a section on PowerPoint.
