Infographic And Educational Information Handout

Guidance

You are to create 2 separate pieces of work for this module.
 
  1. Infographic/poster
  2. Educational handout 
These can either be done on paper or can be done using a programme such as Canva or PowerPoint.

1. Infographic/poster

The first task you need to do is to create a poster or infographic highlighting the biological, behavioural, psychological and social elements of health and illness.

The infographic is 4 marks. To have the infographic approved, you need to have a minimum of 3 marks out of 4.

To get full marks your poster needs to mention each of the Biopsychosocial elements of health and illness. 

These 4 elements are:

  • Biological factors
  • Behavioural factors
  • Psychological factors
  • Social factors

infographic example

Below is an example infographic, which would get full marks. 

Do not copy this word for word as that would get you 0 marks. But use the poster as an idea on how the layout needs to look and what needs to be included.

I have included sources below you can use, but put the poster in your own words and use your own ideas and creativity.
