Expert Answer and Explanation
Social Media Campaign
(B) Community Health Nursing Diagnosis Statement
Community Health Nursing Diagnosis: Increased risk of obesity and overweight among adults in Philadelphia County related to poor nutrition and lack of physical exercises due to insufficient education about the complication of obesity and overweight as demonstrated by type two diabetes, heart and cardiovascular conditions, metabolic syndromes, and cancer among the target population.
(B1) Health Inequity/Disparity
Health disparities or inequalities are preventable differences in injury, diseases, violence, or prospects to achieve optimum health that socially disadvantaged populations experience (Curry, 2020). The first health disparity regarding obesity in Philadelphia County education. According to the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (2018), people with a high school certificate or less are more likely to develop obesity.
The department reported that by 2016, 37% of Philadelphia County residents with high school or low certificates had obesity. The rate of obesity in people who attended some college was 28%, and in people with a college degree or more, the rate of obesity was only 19%. The statistics show that the higher level of education, the lower the incidences of obesity. The department’s statistics resonate with a study conducted by (Curry, 2020). The author found that obesity was high in people with low education levels. Image one below shows the rates based on education.
The second inequality is income. Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) found huge differences in the obesity rate among people with low and high income. According to PDPH (2018), about one in three low-income adults have obesity compared to only one in five individuals with high income. The departments also noted that data from other city health centers further show the inequality among the low-income adult population.
The rate of obesity in individuals earning $24 999 or less was 34%. The rate reduced as income increased. For instance, the rate of obesity was 30% in those earning $25,000 to $74 999 and 21% in those earning $75,000 and above (PDPH, 2018). Low-income individuals risk developing obesity because they do not have enough funds to buy healthy food. However, high-income people can access healthy meals and physical exercise facilities. Image one below shows the rates based on income.
The third inequality is race. The department reported that the rate of obesity in non-Hispanic African American women was two times more than in women of white origin. The rate of obesity in black women was 47%, while in white women was 24%. The fourth disparity is gender. The rate of obesity is high in women than in men.
In other words, women in the county are more prone to obesity than men. The department reported that the rate of obesity in women was 38% and in men was 21%. The last inequality is age. Older people were found to have higher rates of obesity than younger individuals.
According to the department, older people (55-64 years) and middle-aged individuals (45-54) have higher rates of overweight and obesity than more senior people (65 years and above) and younger persons (below 45 years). The images below show the age, race, and gender disparity rate.
(B1a) Primary community and prevention resources. The county has many resources that can be used to address overweight and obesity. One of the resources is the PDPH. This resource is responsible for the health of the people of Philadelphia county.
The PDPH can provide financial support for the program to address obesity and overweight. The department statistical data about the problem. Rittenhouse market is another resource found in the county. This resource is preventable in that it can provide members of the community with healthy food.
Another resource is Kemble Grocery Store. This resource can also provide healthy foods that can be used to create a healthy diet. Fortaleza Fitness Center and Esporta Fitness are county resources that can provide physical exercise activities to the county’s residents. The county roads have walkways that residents can use to conduct the walking exercise.
(B1b) Underlying causes of health concern. Various factors cause obesity and overweight in the county. One of the factors is low income. People with low-income experience obesity because they do not have the financial resources to buy healthy food and pay for gym exercises. Low-income people also have less time engaging in physical activities because they spend most of their time on part-time jobs.
Hobbs et al. (2018) argued that people with low economic status do not have resources they can use to access obesity prevention measures and thus risk suffering the disease. The second cause is education. Residents with low education levels do not have enough knowledge about the prevention and treatment of obesity, which puts them at risk of suffering overweight and obesity.
The PDPH data showed that residents with high school education levels or below had higher rates of obesity than those with college degrees or above. Obesity is also caused by age. Adults aged 45 to 65 years risk suffering obesity than younger or older individuals. Lastly, obesity is caused by gender. Women develop obesity more than men.
(B2) Evidence-based Practice for the Topic
Many evidence-based studies have been conducted to understand the concept of obesity and interventions that can address and present obesity. For instance, Hobbs et al. (2018) conducted a study to find the link between obesity and physical activity environment. The authors also wanted to find the effects of socioeconomic status on obesity.
The authors found that physical activity can prevent obesity or address the disorder. The study was done using a cross-sectional cohort design. Medina et al. (2021) also conducted a study to investigate the impact of diet on obesity. The authors found that proper diet improved weight and hence treated obesity. The authors also found that a proper diet can be used to prevent obesity.
et al. (2021) researched the effects of a multi-level, multi-component (MLMC) on obesity among Native Americans. According to the authors, the MLMC program is an intervention that proposes the development of policies that encourage healthy eating and a physically active life.
(B2a) Identification of data. Obesity is a federal issue. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2021), about 42.4% of people in the US have obesity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also notes that obesity has negatively impacted the cost of care in the country.
Approximately obesity cost the US health department $147 billion in 2018 (CDC, 2021). Incidences of obesity are high among African American people than whites. The CDC’s data corresponds to PDPH information. Both organizations note that obesity is high among adults aged 40-59 years. The CDC reports that obesity is one of the leading causes of hospital admissions and readmissions.
(C1) The Social Media Campaign Objective
This campaign aims to reduce the rates of overweight and obesity among the adult population in Philadelphia County by 10% after two months of implementation.
(C2) Social Marketing Interventions
The first social marketing intervention used in this campaign is “hashtags.” Hashtags will be created and shared with the target population. A hashtag is a tag created using a hash symbol or pound sign. Hashtags will allow the campaign team to share campaign messages through WeChat, Twitter, and Instagram. Hashtags help users easily find the information they need.
The second intervention is short videos featuring influencers. Short videos featuring influencers will be created and posted on the selected social media platform. Influencers will be used to make the videos popular.
(C3) Description of Social Media Platform
Three social media platforms will be used to propel the campaign messages. The first platform is YouTube. The platform has a feature that allows one to post videos. Google developed it. The video is visited frequently. People of all ages use the platform. The second platform is Twitter. Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service which allows users to post messages and interact with followers.
It allows registered users to like, post, and retweet messages, also known as tweets. It also allows unregistered users to read messages that are posted on the public domain. The third platform is Facebook. The platform allows for the posting of videos and messages. According to Facebook (2021), the platform has more than two billion users.
(C3a) Benefits of Social Media Platform
The social media selected for this platform will benefit the program in the following ways. First, it will expose the campaign messages to a lot of the target population. For instance, Facebook has more than two billion users. YouTube has more than a billion users who watch videos worth a billion hours.
Second, the platforms can allow the campaign manager to monitor people’s responses to messages and give appropriate feedback as needed. Third, campaigning through the platforms is less costly than other media platforms. Lastly, the platforms are beneficial because they can allow even individuals who have not signed to their websites to view messages and videos.
(C4) Benefit to Target Population
The platforms will also be beneficial to the target population. After reading messages and videos posted on the platforms, the target population will know more about obesity and how to address or prevent the disorder. One of the elements that will be conveyed through the platforms is physical activities and their importance.
The target population will also learn about a healthy diet. The messages will help the target population address and prevent obesity. The population will avoid many consequences of obesity when they implement the messages they encounter on social media platforms.
(D) Best Practices for Social Media
The campaign manager should ensure that the messages and videos posted on the platforms are strategy and appealing to the eye. The CDC (2019) recommended that messages posted on Twitter should be between 140-250 characters. The organization also notes that Facebook messages should also be 140-250 characters. The campaign manager will ensure that she adheres to the recommended word count.
The videos posted on YouTube and Facebook should be about 5 seconds to 6 minutes. Videos for non-skippable ads should be 15 seconds, bumper ads 6 seconds, and skippable ads 6 minutes. Hashtags will follow the messages and videos to make them popular. The content manager should also ensure that the messages are customer-friendly and comprehensive.
(E1) Stakeholder Roles and Responsibilities
The first stakeholder is the PDPH. The responsibility of this stakeholder is to provide financial and human resources to support the campaign. The second stakeholder is Kemble Grocery Store. This stakeholder will provide healthy food to the target population they can use to develop a healthy diet. Fortaleza Fitness Center and Esporta Fitness will provide spaces for physical activities for the target population.
(E2) Potential public and private partnerships
The biggest partner of this campaign is the PDPH. This partner will support the campaign if needed financial and human resources. The partner will also support the campaign in other necessary data. Other partners are Fortaleza Fitness Center and Esporta Fitness. These partners will provide physical activity resources that the target population will use to practice what they have learned. The last partner is Kemble Grocery Store. The partner will support the campaign by making healthy food accessible.
|Designing, planning, and presenting the campaign to stakeholders.||One week|
|Creation of a team that will be used to implement the project.||One week|
|Implementation process||One week|
|Total period||Five weeks|
(E4) Evaluation of the Campaign
The program will be evaluated by reviewing the retweets, likes, comments, and views. The campaign manager will review how many people have watched the videos, commented on the messages, or liked them. The higher people comment, like, view, retweet the messages, the higher the chances of success. The second evaluation will be done using a survey. The team will survey the target population to determine how the messages have impacted their view of obesity.
(E5) Costs of Implementing the Campaign
The campaign will cost approximately $120,000. Influencers will cost $60,000, technical team $45,000, and evaluation $2500. The technical team includes video editors, content creators, graphic designers, and video directors. The rest of the money will be used for miscellaneous activities that arise during planning and implementation.
(F) Use of Social Media in Health Promotion
Community health nurses can make a significant change in terms of community health through social media. Community health nurses have used social media to champion various community health issues. For instance, community health nurses can use #obesity, #fightcancer, #healthy lifestyle to address these community health issues. Hashtags have proven successful in championing for health-related topics. Community health nurses can also use their social media accounts to educate communities about various health issues.
(F1) Application in Future Nursing Practice
Social media will help me advocate for various health problems in the future as a community health nurse. I always advocate for mental health status. I will use social media to improve this advocacy by posting videos on YouTube about depression and other mental health problems and how to address the issues. I will also use my Instagram account to post tips about healthy foods to help my followers live healthy life.
