Serving Vulnerable Populations And Disease Prevention Teaching Project

Serving Vulnerable Populations And Disease Prevention Teaching Project

Part 1: Serving Vulnerable Populations

Imagine you are a community health nurse assigned to care for a family with a newly diagnosed type-2 diabetic member. The diabetic family member, JK, is a 66-year-old Black woman with hypertension and asthma. JK lives in a food desert and does not drive. JK’s family visits her weekly, but they have complicated lives and are unable to provide daily care for her.

Evaluate the following community health resources and summarize them in a table:

United States Department of Agriculture:
Food Access Research Atlas
Food Access Research Atlas Map
Characteristics and Influential Factors of Food Deserts
 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
A Systematic Review of Food Deserts, 1966-2007
Small Food Stores and Availability of Nutritious Foods: A Comparison of Database and In-Store Measures, Northern California, 2009
Data & Statistics

Create a plan detailing opportunities for JK to gain adequate access to appropriate foods for one week and address the following:

Appropriate and realistic estimated budget
Shopping locations
Transportation means, routes, and timing
Support services

Compare JK’s community to your county census data.

Format your assignment as a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes.

Part 2: Disease Prevention Teaching Project

Step 1: Choose a community health agency (day care, church, school, clinic, homeless shelter).

Step 2: Review Table 1-1 (p. 49) of Community/Public Health Nursing and the results of your windshield survey completed in Week 2.

Open space
Social service centers
Stores, businesses, and industries
Street people and animals
Condition of the area
Race, culture, and ethnicity
Health indicators and morbidity
Signs of decay
Crime rate

Environmental factors
Public services (fire, police)

Step 3: Recommend an appropriate disease prevention teaching project that could be offered by your chosen agency for the local community.

Prepare a 750-word summary of the teaching project with the following:

Summarize the public health issues facing the selected community.
Select 1 issue and prepare an outline of the problem or issue faced.
Explain how your selected agency could address the issue.
Prepare an outline of a disease prevention teaching project that could be offered by your agency.
