Serving Vulnerable Populations and Disease Prevention Teaching Project
Part 1: Serving Vulnerable Populations
Imagine you are a community health nurse assigned to care for aâ€¯family with a newly diagnosed type-2 diabetic member.â€¯The diabetic family member, JK, is a 66-year-oldâ€¯Black woman with hypertension and asthma. JK lives in a food desert and does not drive. JKâ€™s family visits her weekly, but they have complicated lives and are unable to provide daily care for her.Â
Evaluate the following community health resources and summarize them in a table:Â
- United States Department of Agriculture:
- Food Access Research AtlasÂ
- Food Access Research Atlas MapÂ
- Characteristics and Influential Factors of Food DesertsÂ
- Â Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
- A Systematic Review of Food Deserts, 1966-2007Â
- Small Food Stores and Availability of Nutritious Foods: A Comparison of Database and In-Store Measures, Northern California, 2009Â
- Data & StatisticsÂ
Create aâ€¯plan detailing opportunities for JK to gain adequate access to appropriate foods for one week and address the following:Â
- Appropriate and realistic estimated budgetÂ
- Shopping locationsÂ
- Transportation means, routes, and timingÂ
- Support servicesÂ
Compare JKâ€™s community to your county census data.Â
Format your assignment as a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes.Â
Part 2: Disease Prevention Teaching Project
Step 1: Choose a community health agency (day care, church, school, clinic, homeless shelter).Â
Step 2: Review Table 1-1 (p. 49) of Community/Public Healthâ€¯Nursing and the results of your windshield survey completed in Week 2.
From the results of your windshield survey, you will identify a health issue facing the community. You will prepare an outline for a teaching project surrounding the issue, which you would present to your selected agency about this issue.Â
Assess the community for:Â
- Healthy food optionÂ
- Housing and zoningÂ
- Open spaceÂ
- Social service centersÂ
- Stores, businesses, and industriesÂ
- Street people and animalsÂ
- Condition of the areaÂ
- Race, culture, and ethnicityÂ
- Health indicators and morbidityÂ
- Signs of decayÂ
- Crime rateÂ
- Employment rateÂ
- Environmental factorsÂ
- Public services (fire, police)Â
Step 3: Recommend an appropriate disease prevention teaching project that could be offered by your chosen agency for the local community.Â
Prepare a 750-word summary of the teaching project with the following:Â
- Summarize the public health issues facing the selected community.Â
- Select 1 issue and prepare an outline of the problem or issue faced.Â
- Explain how your selected agency could address the issue.Â
- Prepare an outline of a disease prevention teaching project that could be offered by your agency.Â
