Module 5 Case Study 3

Breastfeeding is a process in which the mother feeds the baby milk directly from the breast. Some factors need to be considered when breastfeeding and this includes the nutritional value of breast milk to the infant, the HIV status of the mother, history of certain medications among other things. When explaining this to the young mothers, the health promoter should educate them on the importance of breastmilk to the baby which includes the nutrients and the immune factors. When educating them, the nurse should also inform them of the importance of exclusive breastfeeding especially for those mothers who are HIV positive and are breastfeeding (Rouw, von Gartzen & Weissenborn, 2018). They also need to be informed of the effects of some drugs when breastfeeding and whether or not it should be stopped. To increase the duration and active participation of these clients the health promoter should consider a better teaching strategy since the clients may not be comfortable with the current learning style. A better learning style for this group could be a multimodal strategy (Yang et al., 2020). By having a combination of all these styles the students will have more information with an enjoyable session especially with the inclusion of videos showing how to breastfeed and to take care of the baby.

            There is a relationship between culture and growth and development. Culture is simply the peoples’ way of life which may include what the consume and what they don’t. Therefore in a culture where there’s prohibited consumption of certain nutrients will cause a delayed milestone. It is important to assess children’s milestones irrespective of their culture (Clerk, 2020). This is because there is no difference in growth, all milestones are the same and this will help in the identification of any alterations in case there are any.

            The teaching objective is to educate parents on how to prevent injury during infancy. These parents will learn through an interactive session of asking and answering questions and also by a demonstration of how this prevention will be done. The sessions will be three in a day each lasting for 2hours and a break of 1hour in between each session (Fujii, 2019). After each session, learners are supposed to answer some questions to gauge their understanding. After the program, the parents will be provided with guidelines on further care of infants.
