Week Five Journal – CompetenciesEach week of this course, you will be reviewing and reflecting upon the national competencies for health education specialists. There are seven areas of responsibility that you will review in depth each week through your reflective journal entry.Visit the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (NCHEC) website and download a copy of the Areas of Responsibility for Health Education Specialists (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. This document is considered “The Bible” for health educators as it shows the competencies that are firmly established as the national standards for the field. All total, there are 258 sub-competencies organized into 36 competencies within seven major areas of responsibility.For Week Four, you will focus on Area 7: Communicate, Promote, and Advocate for Health, Health Education/Promotion, and the Profession. Area 7 contains four competencies and many sub-competencies, which are listed in the PDF document (from 7.1 to 7.4.11). In your journal this week, review this area in its entirety, and address the following:Imagine that you are the Senior Health Education      Specialist for your community. Describe a pressing health issue in your      community (e.g., high smoking rates, high substance abuse, low compliance      with the seatbelt laws, significant adult onset diabetes, etc.).Using your skills (as listed in this competency area),      how would you tackle this health issue? In your response, you must apply      at least three of the competencies/sub-competencies noted in Area 7 and be      specific in how you plan to apply those competencies. Please note that      simply stating you would “use No. 7.2.9” is not enough. Explain how and      why you would use that sub-competency.Your journal entry may be a PowerPoint presentation, video, screencast, or a typed document. You will submit your work through Waypoint. No APA formatting is necessary. All presentations must be at least 5 minutes in length. If you use a video or screencast, please make sure you copy the link onto a Word document and then upload the document. This is reflection work and the goal is to critically look at the competencies as well as your insights and beliefs into how they fit into the health educator’s daily routine. There are no right or wrong answers; this is pure personal reflection.
