Environmental factor affecting infants

The growth, development, and learned behaviors that occur during the first year of infancy have a direct effect
on the individual throughout a lifetime. For this assignment, research an environmental factor that poses a
threat to the health or safety of infants and develop a health promotion that can be presented to caregivers.
Take into consideration the health care literacy level of your target audience, as well as the demographic of the
caregiver/patient (socioeconomic level, language, culture, and any other relevant characteristic of the
caregiver).
Include the following:
Describe the selected environmental factor. Explain how the environmental factor you selected can potentially
affect the health or safety of infants.
Create a health promotion plan that can be presented to caregivers to address the environmental factor and
improve the overall health and well-being of infants.
Offer recommendations on accident prevention and safety promotion as they relate to the selected
environmental factor and the health or safety of infants.
Offer examples, interventions, and suggestions from evidence-based research. At least three scholarly
resources are required. Two of the three resources must be peer-reviewed and no more than 6 years old.
Provide readers with two community resources, a national resource, and a Web-based resource. Include a
brief description and contact information for each resource.
