Assignment title Health Promotion
Purpose of this assignment
The following tasks have been designed to guide your work and provide you with opportunities to provide evidence that demonstrates your understanding of socio-economic influences on the health of individuals. Each task is different but will Task 1 to 3 will use the same scenario that you need to read carefully. Task 4 will be a group presentation where you will be designing a Health Promotion Campaign, but note that the allocation of marks will be according to individual performance in the group. It is important to place your work in the context of health and social care practice therefore examples will be required to support your discussion linked with appropriate theory. The work you present for assessment must be your own and all sources of information used need to be cited in the text and in a reference list using the Harvard Referencing System
Scenario
As a Health Improvement Specialist working in Gants Hill, you would have an understanding of what influences the health of the individuals within your community. You have recently come across a case in which the two people involved in the case study could have benefited from an early intervention from health professionals, teachers, their parents and the community. You will attend a conference later this year and will highlight some of the issues that got both Jane and Peter to their current state.
This case study will examine the lives of a 16-year-old girl named Jane and her 17-year-old partner name Peter. They are both smokers and drinkers. Recently they found out that Jane is three months pregnant. This will be a reflection on a real life situation from health and social care practice, so all names and information that could identify the clients, will be changed in accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council guidelines to protect patient confidentiality (2004).
Jane and Peter both left school at age 15; they both live in council flats with their parents in Redbridge. Jane lives with her mother and Peter lives with both his parents who have a history of substance abuse. Jane currently works 16 hours a week in a supermarket and Peter is currently unemployed. Your report must focus on the issue of either 1) smoking during pregnancy or 2) drinking during pregnancy, in terms of its epidemiology. Please choose either smoking or drinking but not both.
The main focus of your discussions throughout the assignment must be on Health Promotion and should relate to the case study of Jane and Peter. Certain models and approaches should be addressed to see what could be useful when trying to promote someone like Jane and Peter to make a lifestyle change to benefit their own, and in this case, the health of their unborn child.
You will also then look at Government initiatives, policies and strategies surrounding this case scenario, and any ethical issues that arise from this situation and discuss this in relation to Jane and Peter.
As you will attend a conference later this year, use the above case study to write a report with 3 sections (according to Tasks below) to highlight some of the issues that got both Jane and Peter into their current state and the possible support available to them.
Task 1 (1.1 1.2 1.3 and M1, D1)
Task 1: LO1 Understand the socioeconomic influences on health
What you must do

• explain the effects of socio-economic influences on Jane and Peter’s health and their unborn child (1.1)
• assess the relevance of government resources such as reports/research on inequalities in health in relation to the case study (1.2).
• discuss the reason and any possible barriers to Jane and Peter accessing health care (1.3).
To achieve M1 an effective approach to study has been applied when explaining the effects of socio-economic influences on Jane and Peter health and their unborn child.
To achieve D1 conclusions have been arrived at through synthesis of ideas and have been justified when assessing the relevance of government resources such as reports/research on inequalities in health in relation to the case study. You will relate the governmental reports to the case study.

Plagiarism Rules and Regulations

No plagiarism is accepted in assignments and students are advised to do the referencing correctly according to the Harvard Referencing System.
Students are advised to submit assignments with a similarity in below 10%. Any student submitting an assignment with a percentage of more than 20% will fail and get an official academic warning.
Reduce your plagiarism by not sharing assignments and doing in text citations of sources used, using the Harvard referencing method

What is Turnitin?

Turnitin is the software that EThames uses to calculate the similarity of your assignment to any other document submitted in the same system all over the world.

What happens when you submit an assignment on Turnitin?

You submit your assignment on Turnitin by submitting it on Livecampus on the assignment submission link. Your assignment is then compared with all of the assignments for all the different units submitted on Livecampus as well as assignments submitted by other students in other colleges and books and documents all over the world. The report generated is not the final report. The final report will only be generated after the final deadline which would mean that once the submission link closes and once every student submitted assignments at EThames for the specific unit, only then the final report will be generated. This means that if you have shared your assignment with anybody and they have submitted part of it or the full assignment the initial report your friend got would’ve indicated the similarity, but your report would’ve remained unchanged. This is because the report is refreshed every time that you upload your assignment and then finally after the deadline. After the deadline their plagiarism will be high as well as your own.

What can you do to avoid getting a high Turnitin score?

Do not copy pieces of work from any book or website. It needs to be rewritten in your own words and proper in text citation should be done according to the Harvard referencing method

Do not share your assignment with any friend, not even to assist them

Plagiarism

Plagiarism is passing off the work of others as your own. This constitutes academic theft and is a serious matter which is penalised in assignment marking.

Plagiarism is the submission of an item of assessment containing elements of work produced by another person(s) in such a way that it could be assumed to be the student’s own work. Examples of plagiarism are:

The verbatim copying of another person’s work without acknowledgement

The close paraphrasing of another person’s work by simply changing a few words or altering the order of presentation without acknowledgement

The unacknowledged quotation of phrases from another person’s work and/or the presentation of another person’s idea(s) as one’s own.

Copying or close paraphrasing with occasional acknowledgement of the source may also be deemed to be plagiarism if the absence of quotation marks implies that the phraseology is the student’s own.

Plagiarised work may belong to another student or be from a published source such as a book, report, journal or material available on the Internet.
