Topic: Why is it important to reducing soft drink consumption?


Background


For this assessment task, you will write a short essay, advocating for a health
promotion priority addressing a particular determinant of health. You are required to
choose a topic from the list below. If you have your own topic that you are interested
in, you will need to email the Lecturer in Charge (LIC), to seek written approval. You
will continue to work on the same topic for Assessment 3. Your arguments must be
supported by citing peer-reviewed academic literature and/or official statistical
resources (e.g. ABS, WHO etc) as appropriate.

Instructions
First, you will need to choose a topic from the following list. All topics relate to potential
health promotion priorities in the Australian context:

  1. Reducing soft drink consumption
  2. Safer sharing of the road by cyclists and car drivers
  3. Preventing bullying in schools
  4. Encouraging people to seek help for managing depression
  5. Responsible consumption of alcohol, in line with health guidelines
  6. Increasing uptake of the influenza vaccine
    Then, you will need to develop your advocacy arguments in support of the health
    promotion priority. You should search the literature, and explicitly refer to peerreviewed academic literature and/or official statistical resources (e.g. ABS, WHO etc.)
    to support your arguments. A minimum of 6 references is expected, at least 4 of which

    Assessment Task 2: Addressing health determinants
    2
    should be peer-reviewed references (e.g. journal articles or scholarly book chapters).
    You do not need to outline how you would achieve this health promotion
    priority/aim at this stage – that is the task for Assessment 3. You just need to
    explain why it is important (i.e. that it will have health benefits). Imagine you
    want to persuade the reader to support your topic.
    Specifically, your essay should include:
    • A brief introduction (1 short paragraph):
    o State the chosen topic; and outline the main points you will cover in your
    essay.
    • Body (most of the essay):
    o Advocate for the topic, explaining why it is an important health promotion
    priority. Outline arguments about how it will have benefits for addressing
    health risk factors/determinants (e.g. smoking) and health outcomes (e.g.
    lung cancer) at a general population level (supported by relevant and
    adequate evidence)
    o Then, identify one population sub-group (e.g. particular age group, suburb,
    ethnic group, members of an organisation, attendees at an event etc.) that
    would especially benefit, and explain why (supported by relevant and
    adequate evidence). This target group can then be adopted for
    Assessment 3.

    Turnitin: Turnitin is a tool used to assist in the detection of referencing problems
    and/or plagiarism. Turnitin generates a similarity index for a document: that is,
    what percentage of the document contains material that is matched to accessible
    sources. Presence of similarity does not necessarily indicate plagiarism: there are
    many reasons why similar text is discovered in student documents. For example,
    Turnitin often classifies reference lists themselves as “similar”—this is similarity, but
    not plagiarism.
