Assessment

Assignment: Health Literacy Assessment
PSLO 1, 2, 4, 5, 6; CSLO 1, 3, 4. 5
Purpose: To determine whether the literacy level of your selected health education resource is appropriate
for at risk populations.
Directions: Select a written (or downloaded from internet source) health education resource (pamphlet,
handout, etc.) that you would find at a healthcare facility such as a clinic, health care provider’s office, or
hospital.
Using your selected health education resource, write an APA style paper to communicate the following:
1. Define health literacy with a scholarly source.
2. Analyze the impact of low literacy on health promotion and health education with a scholarly source.
3. Identify and discuss three at risk populations for low health literacy (based on community
demographics and risk factors known in the literature for low health literacy).
4. Calculate the literacy level of the selected education resource using the SMOG Formula (SMOG
Readability Calculator: http://www.online-utility.org/english/readability_test_and_improve.jsp).
5. Analyze the results and present report findings.
6. Evaluate the appropriateness of the literacy level of the education resource for the three identified at
risk populations.
7. Explain and justify SMOG recommendations to enhance the readability of the educational material for
the three identified at risk populations.
8. Use only scholarly/professional, peer-reviewed references. Do not use Wikipedia or internet
sources that are not officially recognized as authority websites, as such websites are not scholarly
sources. Also, keep in mind that not every .org domain is an authoritative website.
9. Type written 2-3 double spaced page (NOT including the title page and references)
10. Written in current APA format. This paper should include:
a. Formal components including title page
b. APA running head
c. Include page numbers
d. APA formatted headings in the body of the paper
e. Appropriate in-text reference citations
f. A reference page, in correct APA format
All assignments are expected to be submitted by the due dates. Refer to written assignment’s guidelines in the
syllabus. Late assignments without faculty consultation and consent may result in a penalty of (5) points per
college day past due on any written assignment. Failure to submit a written assignment and/or consistent
lateness can result in a grade of “0” or “F”.

Patient is C.V is a 77 year old woman who is diagnosed with unspecified dementia without behavioral disturbance. She was from New York and move here to be closer to her 3 kids. She lives in Suncoast Westminster living facility. This week I did an assessment on her on Respiratory assessment and cardiovascular assessment. During the assessment is was alert and oriented. She answers my question and follows directions. Her vital signs were – blood pressure was 137/65, pulse was 76, oxygen saturation was 92, temperature was 97.1. During my clinical there I also did vitals signs on the rapid recovery site. The interaction with the patients was nice. It felt good to be able to assist them and be able to hear them talk about their life.  I have attached the result for my assessment. Please focus on my report only for respiration and cardiovascular. and also the rubrics for this journal. Title page and references is not included in the 2 pages.
