    Planning for Community and Organizational Change

    This assessment delves into the persistent health challenges faced by the community of Jordan. The preceding evaluation of Jordan’s community health revealed various issues such as mental health concerns leading to adolescent suicide, worsening health insurance conditions, and ineffective management of chronic diseases due to financial limitations. Consequently, this change proposal outlines several strategies to address these enduring health challenges in the Jordan community.


    Benefits and Implications

    To address the health challenges in Jordan, proposed healthcare system changes encompass the following strategies:

    1. Interaction-Based Mental Health Programs in Schools:
      • Implementation of mental health programs within schools involving counselors, psychologists, and social workers.
      • Focus on interaction-based interventions to enhance emotional well-being, resilience, stress management, and coping skills among adolescents.
      • Directly aims at reducing suicidal thoughts and attempts among young students (García-Carrión et al., 2019).
    2. Health Insurance Improvement Plan:
      • Collaboration with policymakers and advocacy teams to support policy changes for affordable health insurance.
      • Advocacy for expanded access to Medicare and Medicaid services for low-income individuals (Martin et al., 2021).
    3. Managing Chronic Health Conditions:
      • Promotion of awareness among older community members to access Affordable Care Act policies for full health coverage.
      • Aimed at reducing mortality and morbidity rates, ensuring equitable care for chronic conditions (Myerson & Crawford, 2020).

    These proposed changes aim to address health challenges effectively and improve the overall well-being of the Jordan community.

    Potential Barriers to Change

    Several potential barriers may hinder the successful implementation of proposed healthcare system changes in Jordan:

    1. Mental Health Program Barriers:
      • Social stigma and cultural attitudes may impede the acceptance of mental health programs.
      • Resource constraints pose challenges to establishing programs in schools (Bracke et al., 2019).
    2. Accessing Adequate Healthcare Insurance Barriers:
      • Barriers include insufficient understanding of health insurance processes and limited access to digital information.
      • Financial and human resource constraints hinder advocacy efforts (Banner et al., 2019).
    3. Chronic Health Management Barriers:
      • Lack of awareness and social stigma may deter community members from seeking healthcare for chronic conditions.
      • Resistance to change due to personal beliefs and lifestyle factors (Repovš et al., 2019).

    Strategies for Changing Barriers into Opportunities and Resolving Conflict

    To transform barriers into opportunities, the following strategies are proposed:

    1. Educational Campaigns:
      • Advocacy groups initiate campaigns to address stigma and promote the significance of mental health programs (Schroeder et al., 2020).
    2. Collaboration with External Organizations:
      • Community authorities collaborate with external organizations to secure funds for mental health programs and other initiatives (AbouAssi et al., 2020).
    3. Communication for Enhanced Engagement with Community:
      • Encourage open and two-way communication within the community to foster collaboration and address concerns (Banner et al., 2019).

    Implementing these strategies fosters a culture of adaptability, continuous learning, and improvement, promoting successful conflict resolution.

    Stakeholder Communications

    Successful implementation of proposed changes requires effective communication with organizational stakeholders. A communication plan outlining key messages, content, and a timeline is essential. Visual aids, infographics, and presentations will enhance stakeholder understanding. Decision-makers’ informational needs include cost-benefit analysis, evidence-based implications, short- and long-term impacts, and strategies to overcome barriers (Errida & Lotfi, 2021).
