Health Education Critique 

Purpose: the purpose of this assignment is to analyze existing patient/consumer education materials and health risk messages for cultural and linguistic competency. 

Process: For your selected population and health issue, find one sample of existing health education product. Critique the health risk/ health promotion message and delivery approach (e.g. Public Service Announcement [PSA] video/commercial, educational video, billboard, brochure, flyer, poster, pamphlet, booklet, Facebook page, etc.).   

For the sample you’ve selected, provide the title and thoughtful and thoroughly assess the following questions: 

Product Title  

  1. What is the concern being addressed in this health risk message? 
  2. Who is the intended audience (target population)? Be as specific as possible. 
  3. Who is the message source? How credible do you believe this source is to the target audience? (explain). [What this is asking is how the target population is likely to feel or respond to the message based on their own resources, beliefs and values?  For example, does the target audience ‘trust’ the government, so if the message is from a government organization is it going to be viewed with mistrust or skepticism? If your target audience is teenagers, will they believe or ‘connect’ with the message just because someone in authority says they should do something or avoid a certain behavior?
  4. How valid and reliable is this resource? (Review Table 9.1 in your NURS 561 Informatics textbook) 
  5. What is the recommended response or action? Please explain. 
  6. What is the threat or negative consequence they are trying to prevent? 
  7. What is the medium (method) through which the message is delivered? 
  8. Do you believe this medium is appropriate or preferred and accessible to the target audience? (Explain why). 
  9. Is the health risk message culturally and linguistically appropriate for the target population? Explain your answer. How did you assess literacy (Explain how you evaluated it for readability and literacy – which tool(s) did you use? What were the results?) 
  10. What are at least 2 changes you would recommend to make it more culturally and linguistically appropriate? (Provide rationale) 
  11. Overall, how effective do you think this campaign is? Explain your answer.
