Students are preparing to go into the community to present prevention information on infection control. In preparing for the teaching project to the community, students will need to seek out a population that will benefit from the project, by performing a needs assessment. Once this information is compiled, students will formulate the proper paperwork for permission to execute their Community Health Project through teaching!
In this lesson students will continue to learn more about some of the preventions of infections and transmission based precautions as they begin to organize the multiple steps needed to implement the final project. Students will practice some of the preventions such as, donning and removing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Preparing for a Community Health Project is imperative for students as they engage community stakeholders in their proposed project. Students are required in this lesson to perform a needs assessment to figure out where the need is most required. Based on the assessment, students will collaborate in groups and decide where, how and what part of infection control prevention will they impart to the stakeholders (preferably other students).
