Question Description

The concepts of health promotion and health education according to World Health Organization, 2018 are as follow. Health promotion is “the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve their health. Health education is “any combination of learning experiences designed to help individuals and communities improve their health, by increasing their knowledge or influencing their attitudes”. Nurses plays important roles in both of them. Health education is performed in different ways and give people with the tools needed to improve their health. Health education uses the nursing process (assessment, diagnose, plan, implement, and evaluate) to provide the proper education. During the assessment process, specific needs are identified and appropriate tools and resources to be utilized are selected. Various factors needs to be taken into consideration, such as level of literacy, health literacy, language needs, SDOH and, cultural differences. Some of the tools that can be used includes pamphlets, classes, videos, and question and answer sessions. One issue that a family may experience today is Intimate partner violence (IPV). In this example during the assessment, nurses should be aware of different physical and not physical signs. Physical signs can include bruising in the chest and abdomen, multiple injuries, and patterns of repeated injury; not physical signs can include anxiety, stress, drug abuse, and suicide attempts. If violence is suspected, sensitive questions to obtain more information needs to be asked. Information about signs/symptoms of abuse and appropriate services to be contacted needs to be provided. Education in resources available for restoration of health, learning positive relationship skills and how to avoid IPV in the future is another important step regarding to this family issue.

Nursing Article Response To Clarice Applegate

Question Description

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) (2018b), health promotion is “the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve their health” (para 1). Health education is defined as “any combination of learning experiences designed to help individuals and communities improve their health, by increasing their knowledge or influencing their attitudes” (World Health Organization [WHO], 2018a, para 1) (Falkner 2018). So in other words this is getting the patient to control their own health path through the education you receive. Nurses play a key role in all of this through both education and advocating for your patients. This can be done during discharge instructions, the homecare admission process, follow up office visits or telephone calls. She may go over things like medications, SE’s, expected outcomes. She will also review dietary concerns, restrictions, and labs to be done. She will also provide appropriate resources the patient will need to get the best quality of rehab needed.

The nursing process has 5 stages to it, assessment, diagnose, plan, implement, and evaluate to provide the proper health education (Nursing Process, Nursing Education and Career). This process starts when the nurse first meets the patient and does not end until the patient has completed the rehab or recovery phase. She will assess what she sees, develope nursing diagnosis, make a care plan and implement it. After the hospitalization is done and the patient has completed the rehab she will evaluate so she can provide the proper education for the patient and the family.

Gun safety is a global issue that hopefully none of you have had a close encounter with. It should now be a standard question during every well child MD visit. This would be the assessment part. A nursing diagnosis would be formed with a plan. The plan could include asking if there are any guns in the home and how are they stored, educating on proper storage of them, keeping them unloaded and locked up at all times. Educate the children to NEVER play with guns that are found and to monitor gun safety at other peoples home that the children may be going into. The parents would go home and implement these plans and a follow up phone call can be made to the family to evaluate the plan and revise it if needed.

DQ 1 Response to Yazmin Bueno

Question Description

The role of health education in health promotion is to empower the individual through education. So that, that person can use that knowledgeto make informed choices and decisionsregarding their own personal health for the better. This allows the individual to become autonomous, giving thepersonfreedom to make their own choicesgiving back control regarding their own health and well being.

A health promotion plan looks beyond the client to the family and the community because the client does not exist in isolation. The health promotion plan focuses on achieving wellness and, along with the client, determines the activities that are necessary to achieve optimum health. The plan examines the client s vulnerability to health imbalance, assesses client weaknesses and strengths, and determines potential for illness. The client participation in the planning process is essential if the goals of the plan are to be attained. It is also important for the nurse to have an understanding of the motivation for human behavior and for changing health behaviors. The successful health promotion plan identifies the interactions among all of the factors that influence the health of the individual (Pender, Murdaugh, & Parsons, 2006). Development of a health promotion plan involves collection of assessment data, recognition of resources, supports, and constraints or barriers to the achievement of goals, identification of outcome measures, planning/implementation, and evaluation phases.

A contemporary issue that a family might experience today is gun control. Nurses should take the time to ask questions regarding gun safety and provide education in order to help families create safe environments within the home.

Response to Robert Clark’s Post

Question Description

Child abuse can be classified into different forms, which include physical, sexual, emotional. Medical and neglect. There are different methods of physical abuse which the processes include evaluating the severity of the injury, type, and location. Often children are psychologically withdrawn which can include feels of being ashamed, confusion, and often withdrawn. Changes in behavior can also reflect abuse, include the children becoming angry, hyperactive, possible decline in school activity. Some warning signs to monitor in behavior is depression, rebellious behavior, and increase risk for suicide. Physical abuse can be unexplained bruises or inju ries. These factors can include a history of injuries or injuries in various stages. Often children that are physical abuse have traumatic brain injuries or multiple fractures.

My facility is an inpatient psych hospital. When the patients are admitted into the hospital, they are assessed for signs and symptoms of abuse. The units that I work are primarily adult male. Some come from broken families, drug abuse, and homeless. It is difficult to assess theses patient’s when they arrive on the unit due to their lack of medication compliance. The patients will be put on peer restrictions, if there is violence within the hospital. If the patient has a history of abuse with their relatives or family members, the hospital police and court system associated with the hospital will place a restraining order. As an RN on these units we are often attacked by the patients. As a care giver you have to handle the attack in a professional manner. We are able to defend ourselves only by protecting ourselves. I was punched in the face by a patient one time, and I had to walk away. Fortunately for the health care providers, we can press charges for any type of abuse in the hospital.

Domestic Violence Post Response

Question Description

Several characteristics such as unexplained bruises, multiple visits for falls, bullying, injuries with explanations that do not match, anxiety, depression, or suicidal thoughts could lead a provider to suspect domestic violence. Our facility screens each patient for abuse during the assessment process. If we suspect domestic violence we contact the police. We have a direct line called “the batphone” to the police department. We refer them to local shelters, provide information to area resources, and try to encourage them to seek help. We also discuss safety plans with patients that come in after an assault. Safety plans should include having a bag packed, keeping numbers and addresses of shelters handy, and having emergency cash hidden for the appropriate time (Usta, & Taleb, 2014). If we have a sexual assault case come in, we do not have a SANE nurse at our facility, so we have to transfer them to a hospital an hour away. We had a child abuse case last week where the child died as a result of a head injury from a fall three days prior to being presented for care. The child had multiple bruises to the head at different stages of healing and human adult bite marks on her arms. EMS notified their dispatch and the police met EMS at the hospital. I have been in the ED for six months and in that time we have had two cases where children have died from child abuse and one from child neglect. In two of the three cases there were signs that should have been picked up on and missed opportunities by multiple people that could have prevented their death. In the third case there were no signs.

DQ2 Response to Bernal’s Post

Question Description

Whenever a minor patient comes into the E.D. we immediately assess their relationship with their parents, as well as any physical or emotional signs of abuse. Is the child behaving appropriately? As in, do they appear comfortable, or do they appear fearful, withdrawn, isolated, and quiet when the parents are around, but if the parent leaves the room the child appears at ease. Do they have any physical signs of abuse, such as bruising in areas that are not common. These areas would include the face, hands, upper arms, torso or back area. More common areas of bruising for children include, the legs, arms, knees and forehead. If they come in with a broken bone, does the story match up to the physical appearance. For example, if a mother were to come in and state that her 2 month old rolled off the bed and hit her head. We as health care providers need to be aware that this is unlikely because 2 month olds are not able to roll themselves off a bed. Does the child appear to be neglected? Are there clothes filthy, do they appear malnourished, do they smell bad. These are all things that need to be kept in mind and observed when caring for any child. At my facility, we as nurses always consult a collegue about what we found, in order to obtain further input. If we do suspect abuse, we let the charge nurse know, we call DCS, as well as the non-emergency police phone number. We try our best to keep the parent’s from leaving the facility until DCS or the police are able to come.
