Strengths and Barriers to Program Implementation

 As you design your program, it is important to anticipate potential issues related to program implementation. Careful forethought can help you to minimize unnecessary stumbling blocks during implementation.
 

There are strengths and barriers associated with every program. What do you see as the key factors to be aware of for your program? Brainstorm key terms such as community, culture, environment, organization, client, bias, and ethics. Give consideration to the factors you come up with (along with those in the Learning Resources) as you proceed with this Discussion.
 

To prepare:

  • Review      the information presented in the Learning Resources. What are some of the      factors (e.g., community, organization, environmental, ethical) that you      consider strengths or facilitators for your program (breast cancer in      African American women in the USA)?
  • Which      ones do you think may pose a challenge for your program(breast cancer in      African American women in the USA)?
  • How      do these barriers need to be addressed in your program design? 
  • How      might the strengths be leveraged to help overcome the barriers?
