Discuss the range of partnership or stakeholders that might be useful in conducting community assessments.

 
lan of Action—Using the Evidence-based Approach to Design a Plan of Action to Address a Specific Public Health Problem
This week’s readings have demonstrated the desirability of EBPH, definitions of EBPH, the scientific factors to consider when determining whether some type of public health action is warranted, tools for measuring impact of EBPH practice and conducting a community assessment to identify issues within a community, prioritizing these issues, developing interventions to address these issues based on a review of what has worked effectively in other places, and evaluating the process, impact, and outcome of intervention efforts.
Now, utilize assigned and suggested weekly readings, the South University online library, the Internet readings, and references to search, evaluate, and retrieve relevant evidence-based public health literature.
Then, use the evidence-based techniques learned so far and design a model, plan, or approach to tackle the public health problem, issue, situation, or concern you identified in Week 1 Project.
While developing the plan, do the following:

Use scientific evidence to assess or review the public health problem selected. Which information from research studies will be utilized in your assessment? Will you use:

Etiologic studies
Studies used to develop methods for measuring or modifying behavior
Studies used to identify the factors that influence the behavior
Studies used to determine whether public health interventions are successful in meeting their stated objectives for risk reduction

Evaluate and identify which analytical tool(s) is most appropriate to apply or assess your public health problem. Of the different types of analytical tools, which will you use to assess your public health problem:

Analytic tools for measuring intervention impact and effectiveness. For example, systematic reviews, meta-analysis, etc.
Economic evaluation, a set of methods for comparing benefits and costs by using the cost-benefit analysis, cost-effective analysis, cost-utility analysis. 

Analyze and list the necessary steps and procedures that would be appropriate to apply as you conduct a community assessment of your public health problem.

Justify why a community assessment is necessary.
Discuss the range of partnership or stakeholders that might be useful in conducting community assessments.
Outline who in the community will be assessed, what to assess, and how to conduct assessments.
Describe how to disseminate the community assessment findings.

As a nurse leader, do you believe you can expand your influence to create change by taking advantage of this overlap? Explain your answer. 

Do you agree that structural violence perpetuates health disparity?

 
According to the assigned article, “Health Disparity and Structural Violence: How Fear Undermines Health Among Immigrants at Risk for Diabetes,” narratives tell the story of the interconnectedness between fear and health. Thematically, the issue of fearis a dominant feature that affects how an individual approaches day-to-day living and health. Explain the relationship between fear and health identified by the researchers in the article. Do you agree that structural violence perpetuates health disparity?

Discuss transformational leadership and how it applies to a RN in the outpatient clinic.

Scenario: Health Systems: Daniel, a DNP prepared ED NP identified that patients seen in the ED for various reasons had undiagnosed HTN. He observed that the patient’s chief compliant was well addressed but the HTN was not. He has approached the hospital system about the problem and suggested an outpatient clinic adjacent to the ED to address the HTN and other coincidentally found problems. What AP roles, core competencies and support are needed to make this happen?

1- Discuss transformational leadership and how it applies to a RN in the outpatient clinic.

*Discuss applying all or some of the 7 core competencies.

*Most be 2-3 power point slides.

Choose health issues that regular physical exercise and activity can help prevent and manage.

 
For the middle-aged adult, exercise can reduce the risk of various health problems. Choose three health issues that regular physical exercise and activity can help prevent and manage. Discuss the prevalence of each of these health problems in society today. Describe measures that you would take as a nurse to assist clients with health promotion measures to incorporate exercise and physical activity into their lives. Include the kind of activities you would recommend, the amount of exercise, and the approach you would use to gain cooperation from the client. Support your response with evidence-based literature.

Define clinical significance, and explain the difference between clinical and statistical significance.

  
Not all EBP projects result in statistically significant results. Define clinical significance, and explain the difference between clinical and statistical significance. How can you use clinical significance to support positive outcomes in your project?

What is the difference between research- and evidence-based practice projects?

                                                   MODULE 1
DQ 1
What is the difference between research- and evidence-based practice projects? Provide an example of each one and the reason for the difference. Why should nurses be interested in learning about EBP? And how can EBP change the way you practice as a professional nurse?
DQ 2
There are many roles in nursing but how would a nurse practitioner and a nurse manager differ about how they use and incorporate EBP in their areas of practice?
What paradigm does the nurse leader have that the nurse practitioner may not have?  Why is the focus of the nurse Practioner so different and is that good or bad?

What are the general mechanisms of action that make antibodies a key component of an immune response?

Innate and Adaptive Immunity

Melissa is a 15-year-old high school student. Over the last week, she had been feeling tired and found it difficult to stay awake in class. By the time the weekend had arrived, she developed a sore throat that made it difficult to eat and even drink. Melissa was too tired to get out of bed, and she said her head ached. On Monday morning, her mother took her to her doctor. Upon completing the physical exam, he told Melissa the lymph nodes were enlarged in her neck and she had a fever. He ordered blood tests and told Melissa he thought she had mononucleosis, a viral infection requiring much bed rest.

Innate and adaptive immune defenses work collectively in destroying invasive microorganisms. What is the interaction between macrophages and T lymphocytes during the presentation of antigen?
Melissa’s illness is caused by a virus. Where are type I interferons produced, and why are they important in combating viral infections?

 

Humoral immunity involves the activation of B lymphocytes and production of antibodies. What are the general mechanisms of action that make antibodies a key component of an immune response?
