The  growth, development, and learned behaviors that occur during the first  year of infancy have a direct effect on the individual throughout a  lifetime. For this assignment, research an environmental factor that  poses a threat to the health or safety of infants and develop a health  promotion that can be presented to caregivers.

Create a 10-12 slide PowerPoint health promotion, with speaker notes,  that outlines a teaching plan. For the presentation of your PowerPoint,  use Loom to create a voice over or a video. Include an additional slide  for the Loom link at the beginning, and an additional slide for  references at the end.

Include the following in your presentation:

  1. Describe the selected environmental factor. Explain how the  environmental factor you selected can potentially affect the health or  safety of infants.
  2. Create a health promotion plan that can be presented to caregivers  to address the environmental factor and improve the overall health and  well-being of infants.
  3. Offer recommendations on accident prevention and safety promotion  as they relate to the selected environmental factor and the health or  safety of infants.
  4. Offer examples, interventions, and suggestions from evidence-based  research. At least three scholarly resources are required. Two of the  three resources must be peer-reviewed and no more than 6 years old.
  5. Provide readers with two community resources, a national resource,  and a Web-based resource. Include a brief description and contact  information for each resource.
  6. In developing your PowerPoint, take into consideration the health  care literacy level of your target audience, as well as the demographic  of the caregiver/patient (socioeconomic level, language, culture, and  any other relevant characteristic of the caregiver) for which the  presentation is tailored
