The following is an overview of Application 2. Application 2: Program Design Elements A 3- to 5-page paper, plus accompanying documents, that addresses the following: Stakeholder Involvement in Developing Mission Statement, Goals, and Objectives (developed in Week 5) • Explain why it is important for representatives of your target population to be involved in developing the goals and objectives for the program. • Identify which stakeholders you would involve in the planning process, and discuss two or more strategies for facilitating their involvement. Program Design (developed in Week 6, with elements developed in Week 5) • Create a visual representation of your program design (e.g., a table or graph) that includes the program’s mission statement, goal(s), objectives, and activities to meet the objectives. • Develop a Gantt chart with timelines for implementing all activities that will assist in meeting each of your program objectives. Due by Day 7 of Week 6. Week 5: Developing Goals and Objectives “Increase quality and years of healthy life.”—Healthy People 2020 Overarching Goal1 “The California HealthCare Foundation works as a catalyst to fulfill the promise of better health care for all Californians. We support ideas and innovations that improve quality, increase efficiency, and lower the costs of care.”—California HealthCare Foundation Mission2 “To improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent, by the year 2020.”—American Heart Association Impact Goal3 The mission, goals, and objectives of a program can and should serve as a guiding force for the services it provides. This week you follow the program design process as it builds from the problem analysis and needs assessment to the development of the mission, goals, and objectives. During this phase, it is important to involve multiple stakeholders to ensure that their perspectives are included. You apply these principles to the planning of your program as you begin working on Assignment 2. In addition, you continue your Practicum Experience.
