Explain how the environmental factor you      selected can potentially affect the health or safety of infants.

The growth, development, and learned behaviors that occur during the first year of infancy have a direct effect on the individual throughout a lifetime. For this assignment, research an environmental factor that poses a threat to the health or safety of infants and develop a health promotion that can be presented to caregivers.

Create a 10-12 slide PowerPoint health promotion, with speaker notes, that outlines a teaching plan. For the presentation of your PowerPoint, use Loom to create a voice over or a video. Include an additional slide for the Loom link at the beginning, and an additional slide for references at the end.

Include the following in your presentation:

  1. Describe the      selected environmental factor. Explain how the environmental factor you      selected can potentially affect the health or safety of infants.
  2. Create a health      promotion plan that can be presented to caregivers to address the      environmental factor and improve the overall health and well-being of      infants.
  3. Offer      recommendations on accident prevention and safety promotion as they relate      to the selected environmental factor and the health or safety of infants.
  4. Offer examples,      interventions, and suggestions from evidence-based research. At least      three scholarly resources are required. Two of the three resources must be      peer-reviewed and no more than 6 years old.
  5. Provide readers      with two community resources, a national resource, and a Web-based      resource. Include a brief description and contact information for each      resource.
  6. In developing      your PowerPoint, take into consideration the health care literacy level of      your target audience, as well as the demographic of the caregiver/patient      (socioeconomic level, language, culture, and any other relevant      characteristic of the caregiver) for which the presentation is tailoredCase Study: End of Life Decisions

    George is a successful attorney in his mid-fifties. He is also a legal scholar, holding a teaching post at the local university law school in Oregon. George is also actively involved in his teenage son’s basketball league, coaching regularly for their team. Recently, George has experienced muscle weakness and unresponsive muscle coordination. He was forced to seek medical attention after he fell and injured his hip. After an examination at the local hospital following his fall, the attending physician suspected that George may be showing early symptoms for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a degenerative disease affecting the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. The week following the initial examination, further testing revealed a positive diagnosis of ALS.

    ALS is progressive and gradually causes motor neuron deterioration and muscle atrophy to the point of complete muscle control loss. There is currently no cure for ALS, and the median life expectancy is between 3 and 4 years, though it is not uncommon for some to live 10 or more years. The progressive muscle atrophy and deterioration of motor neurons leads to the loss of the ability to speak, move, eat, and breathe. However, sight, touch, hearing, taste, and smell are not affected. Patients will be wheelchair bound and eventually need permanent ventilator support to assist with breathing.

    George and his family are devastated by the diagnosis. George knows that treatment options only attempt to slow down the degeneration, but the symptoms will eventually come. He will eventually be wheelchair bound and be unable to move, eat, speak, or even breathe on his own.

    In contemplating his future life with ALS, George begins to dread the prospect of losing his mobility and even speech. He imagines his life in complete dependence upon others for basic everyday functions and perceives the possibility of eventually degenerating to the point at which he is a prisoner in his own body. Would he be willing to undergo such torture, such loss of his own dignity and power? George thus begins inquiring about the possibility of voluntary euthanasia.

    The practice of health care providers at all levels brings you into contact with people from a variety of faiths. This calls for knowledge and understanding of a diversity of faith expressions; for the purpose of this course, the focus will be on the Christian worldview.

    Based on “Case Study: End of Life Decisions,” the Christian worldview, and the worldview questions presented in the required topic study materials you will complete an ethical analysis of George’s situation and his decision from the perspective of the Christian worldview.

    Provide a 1,500-2,000-word ethical analysis while answering the following questions:

    1. How would George interpret his suffering in light of the Christian narrative, with an emphasis on the fallenness of the world?

    2. How would George interpret his suffering in light of the Christian narrative, with an emphasis on the hope of resurrection?

    3. As George contemplates life with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), how would the Christian worldview inform his view about the value of his life as a person?

    4. What sorts of values and considerations would the Christian worldview focus on in deliberating about whether or not George should opt for euthanasia?

    5. Given the above, what options would be morally justified in the Christian worldview for George and why?

    6. Based on your worldview, what decision would you make if you were in George’s situation?

    Remember to support your responses with the topic study materials.
