RN working in the Community Outreach Department at Utopia Hospital

You are an RN working in the Community Outreach Department at Utopia Hospital. You have been asked to give a presentation at the local Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Nutrition program for a group of 15 expectant mothers and interested partners/spouses/caregivers. The WIC Coordinator has asked you to provide a presentation that will cover relevant health and environmental safety topics the parents should know for the first year of life.

In this assignment you will create a 10-12 slide PowerPoint for your presentation, with speaker notes. In developing your PowerPoint, take into consideration the health literacy level of your target audience, as well as the demographics of the expectant mothers and interested partners/spouses/caregivers (socioeconomic level, language, culture, and any other relevant characteristic of the caregiver) for which the presentation is tailored. Your presentation should be geared towards the community where you currently live taking into account local concerns that may be relevant to your presentation. Include the following in your presentation:

  1. Anticipated developmental milestones achieved in the first year of life.
  2. Safety in the home for an infant.
  3. Safety for the sleeping environment.
  4. Food and nutrition safety.
  5. When to call your pediatrician or doctor.
