"Community Teaching Plan for Hispanic Community in Arizona" is an outstanding example of a paper on social and family issues. This community-teaching plan will target the Hispanic community in the state of Arizona. The teaching program will take place at the First Hispanic Baptist Church in Phoenix, AZ. The community-teaching program will focus on diabetes menace in the Hispanic community. The CDC asserts that the Hispanic community is becoming more vulnerable to diabetes than other Americans are. As such, the community requires urgent intervention. The intervention would work well if the community is enlightened on the illness, symptoms, possible diagnoses, and medical solutions to the disease. Target group In the Hispanic community, Diabetes is more prevalent in adults aged above 35 years.
However, the education program will target adults aged 18 years to 75 years. The rationale is that the people in the groups are able to comprehend the basics that will be taught and implement them. They then can transfer the knowledge to others in the community. Objectives of training The main objectives include; Boost awareness of diabetes as a health menace in the community Empowering people to detect any symptoms of the disease and take appropriate measures Understand the risks involved in late diagnoses of diabetes Enhance preventive measures on individual and community level Methodology The teaching will involve the dissemination of professional information to the attendees in the Hispanic language.
The language will be used since it is the first language of the target community. The motive will be to enhance understanding of the issues and hence better outcomes. The process will also involve question and answer sessions where participants will ask various questions and clarifications on issues they find contentious. Diagnoses The training will include teaching on possible diagnoses of the disease.
Random tests will be done to show the ease of detecting diabetes at its earliest stages. The diagnoses that will be considered include: Blood sugar tests where random persons will be tested for excess glucose in the blood. Blood sugar test for a fasting person. A fasting person is deemed not to have eaten in the last 12 hours. Measuring the sugar level of a fasting person, otherwise called the oral glucose tolerance test. Assessment After the training, the attendees will be required to answer the basic questions regarding diabetes.
The questions will be both oral and written. The objective will be to check the importance of the session to the community. The attendees will also be required to demonstrate to others what they have learned. Testing the ability to teach others tests the ability of the training to impact other people who will not attend the sessions.
