INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT (PART 1) Sketch A Solution Brainstorm: Maternal Health and Physical Activity


Please remember that when submitting assignments either submit them as a Word doc or if it is an image in PDF, Jpg, Jpeg. My system does not support HEIC or otherwise. I want to be sure to be able to open your hard work. 

This assignment requires that you read the case study, then develop solutions for the character(s) in the case study.

Why is this part called a brainstorm? You are being asked to come up with many ideas rapidly so you do not get too caught up in details – just get ideas flowing and receive a completion grade for your, loosely based, theoretical ideas.

Connect it to the content of the class!

The sketch a solution assignment must contain linkages to the theory or model studied in the class so far. It is up to you to decide how to connect the theory or model to your Crazy 8s ideas and the sketches. We are focusing on the social levels of influence for this topic. You can still have individual behavior ideas but the main point you want to explore is how social contexts can influence the case study behavior.

Come up with one idea for each model or theory below

Social-ecological model

Social cognitive theory

Social capital theory

Have fun with this, make meaningful connections between the course and your understanding of using theory to develop solutions.

The physical work:

Difficulty level: medium 

Grade: 20 points (as long as you complete and follow directions, you will earn the points)

Self-Timed: 8 minutes (use your phone, computer, or other timer and set for 8 minutes -no more, no less)

What I want you to do: Set a timer on your phone, a kitchen timer, or use a free timer found on the Internet. Come up with eight ways to solve the problem. No more or less time is given. Use all 8 minutes. 

Why: This activity gets you to think past your first idea, and encourages you to get ideas out throughout the socioecological model (individual, community, organization, society & policy level).

Where: Post your ideas to on this discussion board REPLY BUTTON, below.


Post your ideas as soon as you finish reading these directions (don't wait)

Post your ideas if you want to see others' ideas (you post first-Canvas setting)

Post your ideas if you want to advance to Part 2 of the assignment (you will want to)

No list posted below means no points on the Sketch a Solution Part 2 of the assignment (that's worth 20 points)

Your submission can appear in two ways, a sketched drawn list or a written list. See below.

The Sketched Drawn List

Again, submit your work as a Word doc or if it is an image in PDF, Jpg, Jpeg. Do NOT support as an HEIC or otherwise. 

Suggestions & tips for creating your sketched list

Fold the paper into 8 sections, or fold in half 3 times to get the same effect. 

You can use pen and paper or draft this up on a Google Doc. 

Be sure to give plenty of words so the viewers understand your idea (this may take a few extra minutes to refine after the timer stops).

You do not have to be an artist to create your list, sketch whatever you can, it will work perfectly to get the point across.

Spend about one minute on each idea, then move to the next.

CJ – Dreaming of Becoming of Mother

CJ, 25, has been gaining weight over the last five years and wants to start a family with her spouse and become pregnant with her first child in the next year. CJ met with her doctor and her doctor said that shee needs to incorporate more physical activity into her daily routine. CJ is a medium height person, weighing 200 pounds, and really does not know how to be physically active on her own.

CJ’s experience with physical activity was somewhat limited in variety. 6 months ago, she read that being within a healthy weight range could reduce pregnancy and delivery complications. After that, CJ started walking in her neighborhood for 15 minutes, once a week. CJ would go for walks by herself, sometimes her spouse would join her and she seemed to enjoy that. When CJ was 18, she went to a dance class every week, for 45 minutes and she would see other friends at the class, they were good at the dance class. The dance class was cancelled and CJ moved away and has not danced or done any kind of group physical activity since then.

CJ wants to be more active for the sole reason that she wants to have a healthy pregnancy and reduce the chance for infant or maternal death during delivery. CJ saved $50 dollars to buy anything that will help her be physically active. CJ has access to the Internet, but is not familiar with where to search for good health information regarding physical activity and maternal & child health. CJ is employed but does not have access to an employee health program, instead she receives a monthly newsletter with words of encouragement to be healthy.

CJ generally makes friends easily, but has been isolating due to COVID-19 pandemic. She has expressed wanting to be phsycially active to friends through text messages. Her friends have tried to be supportive and said they would cheer her on if she started some kind of homebased phsycial activity routine. CJ plans to talk to her doctor next week about what kind of exercise is appropriate.

The Problem

Big picture: Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in Arizona. Heart disease consists of many type of issues related to the function. In this case study, we focus on heart health issues related to lifestyle behaviors (eating, exercising, stress reduction, sleep, etc.) 65% (4 million people -enough to fill 66 NFL stadiums), of Arizona adults reported being overweight, 10% reported having diabetes, and 5% reported having heart disease.

Maternal Mortality is the death of women while pregnant or within 42 days of terminiation of pregnancy due to any cause, related to or aggravated by, the pregnancy or its management but not from accidental or incidental causes. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) the top leading causes of maternal deaths in the U.S. are: cardiovascular disease; other non-medical cardiovascular conditions (lifestyle conditions i.e. overweight, shortness of breath, smoking tobacco, substance use, excessive stressful habits), infection, hemorrhages (bleeding) Arizona State Health Assessment, 2019).

Maternal deaths related to childbirth in the U.S. have increase steadily since the CDC began tracking pregnancy related deaths, rising from 7.2 per 100,000 in 1987 to 18.0 in 2014 (CDC Division of Reproductive Health). Another concern related to maternal deaths are the complications that can happen during pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Some effects are mild and some are severe and range from high blood pressure, respiratory distress, amniotic fluid embolism, eclampsia, heart failure during a procedure, severe anesthesia complications, infection, shock, and blood transfusion problems to name a few.

Some of the consequences of the complications include unexpected pregnancy, derlivey, and postpartum complications like bleeding, organ failure, and stroke. The complications not only affect the health of women, but also their fetuses who may suffer low brith weight, premature brith, or death. Severe complications in pregnancy has been slowly increasing in recent year and affected more than 50,000 women, last counted in 2014. It is not clear why sever complications are increasing, but changes in overll health of the population of women giving birth may be contributing to increases in complications.

While maternal mortality in Arizona remains below the national average (20.3 out of 100,000 live births, during 2012-2016, compared to 26.4 nationally), Arizona has also seen increasing rates (ADHS Bureau of Vital Records).
