Health Teaching Plan Guidelines


Construct a teaching plan for health promotion for an individual client.


Select an individual who demonstrates a knowledge deficit (example: one which threatens their
achievement of a maturational task.)

A. Client Assessment: Complete a brief nursing history to

1) substantiate the client’s need for educative/ supportive intervention,
2) identify client’s strengths and limitations in meeting the therapeutic self-care demand, to
include literacy
3) identify any cultural influences likely to influence the learner, and
4) document the nursing diagnosis.

B. Teaching Plan: Develop a specific, detailed, teaching plan (template provided) which includes:

Specific client/focused learning objectives

Topical outline of content material
Cultural implications R/T the learner
Planned teaching strategies and learning and activities
Time frame for planned activities
Evaluation criteria
Client expected response
Teaching handout (made by student)
Reference Page

C. Implement the teaching plan: Discuss

D. Evaluate the effectiveness of the teaching plan in achieving learning objectives using established
evaluation criteria, including actual or suggested adaptations (if appropriate) to original plan. Include
rationale of positive or negative responses to your plan. Any reinforcement or new approaches needed.

Submission Guidelines

1. Include Grading Rubric

2. Use soft cover pocket folder
3. Typed
4. Put handout in pocket (don't staple)

Client Assessment

Students Name: Taylor Hultman Date: November 26, 2016

Client’s Initials: R.H. Age: 78 Sex: M

Assessment/Data Collection: Client lives at home alone, wife is deceased. Client is alert and orientated x4
but sometimes has trouble managing diabetes which can lead to temporary confusion or feeling of
faintness. Client is able to fully carry himself around, has no trouble walking and no other health issues
besides diabetes.

Subjective: Client manages diabetes on his own since spouse is deceased. Does not regularly test blood
glucose, does not take any medications, and does not take to a healthy diet or regularly exercise to control
health. Client says to not have much knowledge of the effects of not properly managing diabetes. Client
reports occasionally feeling faint.

Objective: Client is overweight and excess fat in the abdomen area. Was not able to test client’s blood
pressure but client has been personally observed not adhering to a healthy diet or following a normal
exercise routine. Client was not observed to be doing anything to control diabetes. Client was not able to
demonstrate ways of properly managing diabetes.

Nursing Diagnosis: Knowledge deficit of how to manage diabetes related to lack of experience and
personal knowledge as evidenced by failure to regularly test blood glucose levels, failure to regularly
exercise, failure to maintain healthy diet.

 People that can motivate client

Motivation to learn

Client’s motivation to learn is to be healthy enough to continue running the farm without hiring outside
help. Client would also like to live longer to see grandson’s future.


After completing this goal orientated teaching project, I was able to successfully teach

my grandfather the importance of managing his diabetes in order to lead a healthier life. This was

completed by following a step-by-step process of informing, engaging, testing, and re-evaluating

the teaching assessment throughout the entire scenario. I found that the initial engagement

concerning R.H.’s health was difficult to begin, as this is not a subject normally discussed within

our family. After informing R.H. of the importance of this issue, they were able to understand

that this project was needed in order to help assist R.H. in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The

process of engaging R.H. in the steps to maintaining his diabetes was surprisingly easy, as he

already had a basic understanding of this concept. It was not until re-evaluating his knowledge,

did I understand the importance of have a teaching aid, in the brochure. This helped R.H. to

remember each step, as the bullet points were used to help him recall the main objectives of the

teaching scenario. With a little bit of encouragement, initial assistance, and ensuring to check up

on R.H. I have much more confidence knowing that his diabetes will be held under control in a

much more responsible manner than before this project.

GOAL: Client will increase knowledge on the importance of controlling diabetes and know steps on how to manage it.

Documentation of Client response:
Initially, the client was not aware of the vitality of understanding diabetes as related to their daily activities. The client also did not understand what kind of
serious risk factors were associated with not managing diabetes. Client was very willing to learn and was very open to all teaching ideas completed such as
explaining the risk factors as well as explaining how to manage it. When client was not sure of something being said, they asked for clarification. R.H.
continued to utilize the brochure to help memory recall. Client personally said that this was the most they have learned about managing diabetes and now
they can see the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In the end, R.H. was successfully able to recall most risk factors associated with poor diabetes
management as well as explain and demonstrate tasks that can be completed to improve their condition.

Evaluate the effectiveness of the teaching plan in achieving learning objectives using established evaluation criteria, including actual or
suggested adaptations (if appropriate) to original plan. Include rationale of positive and/or negative responses to your plan. Include
any reinforcement or new approaches needed.

The teaching plan allowed the ideas to flow much better instead of trying to organize and teach everything verbally without a guide. Since my

grandfather is part of my family, he was more willing to hear what I had to say. I think this is because he knows I am going through nursing school

and he respects and trusts me more than if it was just a random teacher. In relation to teaching, I tried to positive reinforce the subject throughout the teaching

I think the teaching plan went extremely well and I would have changed the initial aspect of starting. I would have been much more clear in the objectives
that I planned on completing with R.H.


Specific: R.H. will be able to explain the importance of managing diabetes.

Measurable: Have the client explain why, versus the importance.

Achievable: Is the client able to achieve the goal

Realistic: R.H. does not need any outside assistance other than willing to learn

Time: The individual should be able to explain importance and demonstrate activities by end of teaching session.

Specific: Individual agrees to learn how to measure blood glucose and practice activities.

Measurable: Individual actively engaging in learning activities and able to answer questions when asked.

Achievable: Will be able to assess if the individual is able to achieve the goal. This will be a pass/fail system of assessment.

Realistic: Individual, with initial support, will have the resources for these goals.

Time: Individual will understand the importance of the stated objectives by the end of instruction.


Specific: Demonstrates testing of their blood glucose, as well as healthy lifestyle activities.

Measurable: Shows successful completion of tasks after detailed instruction.

Achievable: Will have resources (brochure and personal support) and ability to achieve goal.

Realistic: Individual is able to achieve goal with no outside help, after instruction and continued support.

Time: Individual will perform tasks by end of instruction. These were timed events; however, they did not diminish the overall learning of the objectives.
