Virtual Practicum Team Discussion

Practicum Activities: Identify a Population Group

Community health nursing needs to be not only on the individual, but also the family and the community. This activity is intended to teach you how the term community health is about identifying problems and managing interactions within the community. In meeting multiple needs, community health nurses are required to fulfill multiple roles. These roles include care provider, educator, advocate, manager, collaborator, leader and researcher.
This week, your instructor has assigned you to choose a population group that you will write about for the next six weeks. Community health nursing settings include homes, ambulatory care settings, schools, occupational heath settings, residential institutions, and the community at large. Knowing about these settings may assist you in choosing your population group. Read more about populations in your textbook.
Please address the following:

Introduce yourself to your team members. Where do you work?
Briefly describe the community where you live.
For the purpose of the Population-Based Nursing Care Project, choose a population group that interests you. Describe what the members of your chosen group have in common? For example, do they share some important features in their lives?
What are some health problems or issues that you can think of that may affect the population that you are interested in?.

Virtual Practicum Team Discussion

Practicum Activities: Use Health Data and a Population Group Health Problem

This week, your instructor has assigned you to begin collecting health data about a health problem or issue that affects your population group. Examples of health data include epidemiological information related to health conditions, reproductive outcomes, causes of death, and quality of life. Important information to include is socioeconomic data (poverty levels) and the presence or lack of health insurance in your population. Read more about epidemiology in your textbook.

There are a variety of sources to collect health data – at the local, state, and national level. Access and review the professional literature to support your case. If data is not available to support your heath issue for a local group, use state or national data. Read more about health data collection in your textbook.

Some website links are provided in the Course Webliography to help get your started. It takes time to gather data, so don’t worry about finalizing your data collection this week. In weeks 3 and 4, you will continue to collect Health Data by means of contacting your local health department and performing a community assessment.

Please address the following:

What are some health problems within your population group?
Is there a priority health problem that stands out to you?
What population-related health problem do you want to focus on for this project?
Identify one or more websites that you found to be useful. Please post the sites/s in the Course Webliography.

Practicum Activities 3: Consider Levels of Prevention
This week your instructor has assigned you to consider the levels of prevention used in the community health setting. The three levels are primary, secondary, and tertiary. What do these terms mean?

To improve population health, the community nurse carries out her work sequentially and simultaneously at all levels of prevention.

Also, as you continue to work on collecting health data. Consider contacting your local community health department this week to find out how they involved in addressing your problem. See what you can uncover. Also, collaborating with other health care professionals, including your team members, will assist you to gain a fuller understanding of both your issue and your chosen population.

Please address the following:

Think about the three levels of prevention and how they relate to your population group’s health problem.
Provide three examples of health interventions, one for each level of prevention, that are appropriate actions to take regarding your population’s problem.
