A Risk Reduction Seminar
- Differentiate between prevention and promotion
- Describe the challenges of prevention in population-based nursing
- Describe the challenges of promotion in population-based nursing
In this assignment, you will develop an educational activity that targets reduction of a specific health risk.
- A one- to two-page (250- to 500-word) educational activity plan
- Identify a health risk teaching topic.
Choose a teaching topic related to a health risk. For example, you could choose heart disease, breast cancer, type 2 diabetes mellitus, cervical cancer, hyperlipidemia, melanoma, or another health risk.
- Research the ways to reduce this health risk.
Using nursing texts, medical resources, nursing journals, and reputable Internet sources, create a list of lifestyle habits and changes that reduce this health risk and promote health.
- Develop an educational activity focused on reducing this health risk.
Using the nursing process as a guide, develop an educational activity focused on strategies to reduce a specific health risk. Be sure to discuss challenges uniquely associated with promoting health and preventing disease related to this particular health risk. While all steps of the nursing process must be addressed, the primary focus of this assignment is the “planning” step. Support your plan with resources/citations.
- Describe the plan.
Create a document that describes the plan for the educational activity as follows:
- Health risk
- Knowledge deficit related to the identified health risk
- Title of educational program (based on your assessment and diagnosis)
- Target audience: (for example, patients/families or nurses)
- Learning outcomes (the goals of the educational program)
- Teaching strategies (for example, discussion, lecture, video clips, Q & A)
- The educational activity (a plan)
- The educational activity (propose when/where /how long, but do not carry out the activity).
- How you will assess the extent to which the learning outcomes were met
- A list of resources/citations that substantiate the health risk and support your educational activity plan
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines health promotion as “the process of empowering people to make healthy lifestyle choices
Disease prevention differs from health promotion The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines health promotion as “the process of empowering people to make healthy lifestyle choices and motivating them to become better self-managers.” Health promotion includes providing education, counseling, and support strategies to enable the client to change unhealthy lifestyles. Long-time habits, such as smoking or overeating, are difficult to modify or give up completely. Health promotion activities need to be accompanied by education, classes, or support groups to be successful. Nurses can implement health promotion activities such as after-school exercise and nutrition programs for children who are at risk for obesity. This type of promotion activity can improve the health of children and provide parents with information on how to implement healthy activities and nutrition into their daily lives.
Disease prevention differs from health promotion in that it focuses on identifying risk factors, such as a family history of diabetes or high blood pressure, and detecting disease in its early stages. For example, to reduce consequences and improve treatment outcomes, nurses can provide overweight patients with nutrition counseling, immunizations, and vitamin supplementation for those at risk for osteopenia and osteoporosis (CDC, 2006).
