Description: Presentation – Your final summative assignment is to develop PowerPoint or Prezi presentation to be shared with the class on your finalized Blueprint for Healthy Aging. The PowerPoint should outline and highlight major points from each section of your blueprint based on your weekly written drafts of each section and feedback provided by your instructor. You should provide 3 to 4 slides for each of the six sections of the blueprint, for a total of 18 to 24 slides plus final reference slide/s. Post your presentation by Day 5. Provide feedback and comments to at least two peers’ blueprint presentations. 1. A Statement of the Problem/Challenge: This section includes a concise statement of the specific problem you will address in your blueprint including a brief review of historical, current and future trends and context of the problem (e.g., specific population affected, geographic location/s, prevalence, personal and societal impacts and costs.) relating to the issue. You should also discuss why it is important to address the problem to facilitate healthy aging. 2. Theoretical Models and Concepts: In this section, you will analyze and apply relevant theoretical models and concepts covered in this course to help provide context and understanding regarding the cause of, the nature of and the potential solutions to the problem. 3. Social Policy, Legal and Regulatory issues: In this section, you will identify, summarize, and critically evaluate any relevant existing social policies, laws, or regulations (or lack thereof) aimed at addressing the problem. 4. Plan to Address the Problem and Facilitate Healthy Aging: In this section, you will identify a plan/strategy to address the specific problem/challenge. You should identify a specific goal or outcome (or set of goals and outcomes) reflecting a change or solution to the problem which will reflect a model of “healthy aging.” Next, outline your plan, as concretely as possible, to address the problem. Your plan should be informed and supported by and include application of relevant theories and concepts covered in the course as well as existing research. If policy, legal or regulatory changes or proposals are deemed necessary, you should discuss the specific changes/proposals and include justification for each recommendation. This section should also include analysis and discussion of potential challenges or barriers to implementation of the proposal as well as recommendations regarding solutions to overcome or address each barrier or challenge identified. 5. Plan to Measure Progress/Effectiveness: In this section, you will identify strategies to measure outcomes, progress and effectiveness of the proposed plan to facilitate healthy aging. Specifically, how will the implemented changes be measured? How will you determine if the proposed plan is effective in addressing the problem/challenge and promoting healthy aging? 6. Summary and Conclusions: In this section, you should provide a succinct summary of the problem, background, proposed plan, outcome measures. You should also include discussion of “next steps” toward implementing your Blueprint for Healthy Aging.
