The final PowerPoint presentation due at the end of your coursework in SHB8775 is a cumulative effort of several assignments you will complete throughout the course: Project Topic Selection (Unit 3), Summative Evaluation (Unit 5), Evaluating National Programs (Unit 7), and finally your PPT Presentation (Unit 9).

As part of these assignments, you are expected to conduct research in several areas related to the program or service you selected in Unit 3.  While you are required to use scholarly literature to support your program evaluation and recommendations, there are unlikely to be many (or any) articles published on the specific program you selected.  Instead, use this guide to jumpstart your research by finding articles with general information related to aging and grieving populations that you can analyze and synthesize to meet your needs.

  • Theories
  • Biopsychosocial elements
  • Cultural elements
  • Spirituality
  • Family/Community support
  • Professional Collaboration
  • Legal/Ethical issues
  • Help with Powerpoint
