NRS 430 MDC Vulnerable Populations Substance Abusers PresentationDirections:
Public and community health nursing involves working with vulnerable populations as equal partners with a focus on primary prevention and health promotion. Nurses should incorporate evidence-based nursing practices that demonstrate an awareness of ethnic identities, cultures, and socio-cultural practices of local clientele. In this assignment, you will design healthcare education for individuals, families, and communities from a vulnerable population of your choice. The objectives of this assignment are to: 1. Research a current event in public and community health. 2. Increase your understanding of a particular area of public and community health. 3. Critically evaluate current processes that support a vulnerable population or community, and increases its ability to be healthy. This assignment requires critical thinking to develop a reasoned, supported opinion of your target population’s vulnerabilities. You should explore your existing attitudes, thoughts, and intrinsic beliefs regarding the health issues of this population.
