A culturally competent healthcare program acknowledges the importance of culture, recognizes the potential impact of cultural differences, adapts to cultural knowledge and beliefs, and designs services to meet culturally unique needs. To design and plan programs that address cultural diversity, a program planner must be aware of cultural competency, health literacy, and ethical and social justice principles.
The team you’re working with to plan and eventually implement your chosen health or healthcare program (the same program you will present in your course project in Module Nine) is looking for additional details about how ethical and social justice principles will be integrated into the program. They also want to know more about how cultural competence and health literacy will be promoted. To provide them this information, you have been asked to put together a brief presentation to share with the team at your next meeting.
This activity will help you determine the importance of cultural competence and health literacy in program planning. Also, it will help you apply social justice and ethical principles to your program. You will use findings from this assignment to explain the socioeconomic factors of program planning in your course project presentation.
Create a PowerPoint presentation with embedded speaker notes to describe how you will identify and address cultural and other socioeconomic diversities for your target population. Include your speaker notes as a Word document, either downloaded from your presentation or created separately, with slide numbers accompanying each slide note.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
- Health Literacy: Describe which elements of your program ensure health literacy among the targeted population. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
- How would lack of health literacy impact the patients and the program’s activities?
- How would health literacy among the targeted population improve the program’s ability to achieve its outcomes?
- Cultural Competence: Describe how you would make your program sensitive to various cultural practices and beliefs. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
- Why is cultural competency one of the essential skills for a program planner?
- How does your program address racial and economic disparities that are impacting your target populations’ healthcare needs?
- Social Justice Principles: Describe how you would apply social justice principles to your program planning and how their inclusion would help improve the program’s ability to achieve its outcomes. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
- Why is social justice important in the planning and implementation of healthcare programs?
- Which two social justice principles does your program consider, and why does it consider them?
- Key Ethical Principles: Describe how your program satisfies key ethical principles and how including these principles would help your target population. Consider the following questions to guide your response:
- How does your program satisfy the principles of beneficence, nonmaleficence, autonomy, and justice?
- What are two potential challenges you might face in applying ethical principles to your program’s plan and design?

Pediatric Fertility Preservation Reflection
In this course, I have gained valuable knowledge that will assist me in furthering my future and professional career in the healthcare field. What I've learned is how to properly design and arrange a program that will improve the quality of life at a healthcare organization for both staff and management, but most importantly for the patients we serve. Even though I've never been particularly adept at creating budgets, I was able to improve my understanding of them while working on this project. I also learned the importance of having one in place. Program-planning abilities are required. Developing an effective program takes extensive study and financial resources. Throughout this course, I was able to get an understanding of how to properly construct and prepare for the execution of a budget. When it comes to ensuring that a company keeps on schedule and completes tasks on time, one of the most crucial roles is that of a manager. Employees are hired, terminated, and punished by the manager, who has the last say. The business's management must employ personnel who are capable of doing the tasks that will be given to them inside the organization. When a new employee is hired, the company's management must train him or her to comprehend the company's business operations and operating procedures. Management will closely monitor the employee's performance once the training period has concluded. If any weaknesses are detected, management will take appropriate measures to correct them. In addition, the manager is responsible for monitoring and regulating expenditures and budgets, as well as for planning and setting objectives for future events and reporting scorecard results to upper-level executives. For a program to be successful, the program manager must oversee every aspect of the program before deployment.
As a future healthcare professional, assuming the job of a manager will provide him with an opportunity to exhibit his exceptional leadership talents. Among the responsibilities of the health, the manager will be to guarantee that the organization's objectives are reached while also allowing its employees to submit constructive input to achieve good performance. If they are in charge of the creation, planning, and evaluation of programs, they must be strategic thinkers with a diverse set of talents. When discussing program management, it is important to note that it encompasses both human and non-human resources. Program management is described as the process of defining, planning, and carrying out a program's objectives using different ways (Longest, 2015).
Managers may utilize planning in both positive and bad ways, depending on their objectives. As a manager, it's critical to understand the specific tasks and objectives associated with each job/week so that you can plan ahead of time properly. It is possible to address any queries or issues that arise throughout the day using the information provided on this page. As a result, the organization's efficiency and capacity to function as a cohesive one will be enhanced. A manager's skill is the ability to coordinate actions that benefit the organization, which is another key component of a corporation's structure and operation. The development of roles that will create groups and teams to discover solutions will be the most effective resource in this regard. It is conceivable that this will be justified by the resolution of specific challenges and the identification of other methods of achieving the company's fundamental aim. Information that may be used to improve the operations of a firm is examined and obtained through the process of assessment in managerial positions. As a manager, participating in an assessment may offer you important feedback and assist you in determining which parts of the company's performance need to be improved. To justify the allocation of resources, it may be necessary to demonstrate that each development concept works in concert with the others.

My project is to create a fertility preservation program in Bellevue Hospital for children diagnosed with cancer and similar chronic conditions.
Fertility preservation evaluates children with medical conditions and treatments that could affect fertility.
Evaluating the success of a healthcare program is important because it helps in obtaining a systematic method to study a program to understand how well it achieve its goals.
Evaluating a fertility preservation program helps will help me to determine what works well and what could be improved.
The method I will use to evaluate my project is the use of focus groups.
Evaluation method-Focus Groups
Focus groups is suitable for collecting data for fertility preservation because it is reliable.
It is primarily quantitative but can also be used to collect quantitative data.
When used for quantitative data, important data about the participant is numerically coded (Santesso et al., 2021)
Example of data sources for focus groups include documented questions and answers with multiple programs.
Participants in this program will be interviewed as a group.
Advantages of using focus groups
It is quick and reliable
It collects common impressions
Efficient way to get range and depth of information in a short timeframe
It is excellent in capturing the perspectives of key participants concerning the program.
It fully reflects the participant’s experiences
Focus groups need a good and well-trained facilitator who will be able to coordinate the groups and ensure that each participant is active in the group (Flynn et al., 2018).
The use of focus groups makes it difficult to analyze response
It is characterized by difficulty scheduling a group of people together
There is high possibility of the facilitator or participants giving bias responses
Focus groups can be expensive
Quantitative data analysis
My evaluation method for this project will be focus groups.
When focus groups are used for quantitative data, important data about participants are numerically coded.
Quantitative data analysis is suitable for this project because it measures the differences between groups.
Quantitative data analysis measures the relationship between variables
It is suitable in testing hypothesis in a scientifically rigorous way.

|Note: Donations are money or gifts of things, donated by an individual, family, or trust, that are intended to be used for a charitable purpose. Per the donation regulations applied to healthcare organizations, only 5% of a donation may be used to fund operating expenses on an annual basis. For example, if the Smith family donated $100,000 to a nonprofit healthcare organization, only $5,000 of that donation could be spent annually on whatever purpose the Smith family designated for the gift. However, the full amount of a donation can be used to purchase equipment or to purchase or renovate space, with the donor's consent. Equipment maintenance is an ongoing cost and cannot be funded by donations, except via the 5% rule. People, staff, supplies, and rental costs cannot be funded by donations except through the 5% rule. The rules regarding the use of donations are much more limiting for for-profit organizations vs. nonprofit organizations. Grants are very specific about what will and will not be covered. They require a written grant request or proposal that specifically states how the money will be used. Once a grant is awarded, the receiving organization must show proof that the money was used as directed by the grantor and as stated in the grant application. Grants are usually time sensitive and often nonrenewable. Most are designed to help initiate a program, not to sustain a program.|
