Answer the questions below and Create a 15—20 slide PowerPoint presentation. Include speaker notes and citations for each slide, and create a slide at the end for References.
1.Describe the approved topic and associated population your group has selected. Discuss how this topic adversely affects the population. How does health disparity affect this population?
2.Explain evidence-based approaches that can optimize health for this population. How do these approaches minimize health disparity among affected populations?
3.Outline a proposal for health education that can be used in a family-centered health promotion to address the issue for the target population. Ensure your proposal is based on evidence-based practice.
4.Present a general profile of at least one health-related organization for the selected focus topic. Present two resources, national or local, for the proposed education plan that can be utilized by the provider or the patient.
5.Identify interdisciplinary health professionals important to include in the health promotion. What is their role? Why is their involvement significant?
The topic is immunization and infectious diseases, the target population will be the new moms with babies.
My Task: Outline a proposal for health education that can be used in family-centered health promotion to address the issue for the target population. Ensure your proposal is based on evidence-based practice. Topic: Immunization and Infectious Diseases Population: Group of New Moms with Newborns It is important to have your newborn receive the recommended immunization, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC, 2019). When vaccinated, your baby is protected from 14 potentially serious diseases before their second birthday. Within the first 12 hours after birth, they receive their first dose of Hepatitis B. Contrary to some opinions, these vaccines are safe. The CDC and Federal Drug Administration (FDA) priority is to make sure these vaccines are safe both before and after the public begins to use them (CDC, 2019). Equally important is to follow the CDC’s recommended schedule for vaccinations. The recommended schedule decreases the risk of unknown negative outcomes for the newborn. Pregnant women should receive the influenza vaccine in any trimester during the flu season. Another important vaccine is the Tdap (tetanus, diphteria, with acelluar pertussis) to protect against whooping cough, should be received between the 27 and 36 weeks of gestation (CDC, 2019). Tdap is also recommended for those who frequently will be around the baby, for example, Dad, grandparents, teens and other adults. There is a wealth of information on the importance of vaccinating your newborn to prevent diseases on the internet. There are printable handouts, guidelines, printable vaccine records, frequently asked questions, and answers, videos, etc. There’s even a page dedicated to this on Pinterest with 14 pins on vaccines for pregnant women, infants, and children. Despite all the information out there, some families are not vaccinating their infants putting them at risk of contraction preventable diseases. If there are any questions or concerns about the vaccination they should speak to their doctor. Scenario The patient 23 years old comes to the ER in labor pain accompanied by her mother and boyfriend. The patient was taken to the maternity ward, she was made comfortable and a physical assessment was done, she was reassured she was safe, and everything was going as it should. She was also given some information on what to expect next. Through observation, questioning and active listening it was noted that the patient did not have insurance and they were concerned that she will not be treated. They were reassured that that was not the case and she will be well taken care of. With the patient’s permission, her mother and boyfriend were used as a resource and they were able to give some valuable information on the patient. After labor, and some rest the patient was further assessed for SDOH and her family was encouraged to participate in her care and the baby. The patient and her family were engaged in the plan of care and all questions were answered and appropriate education was provided. The nurse also advocated for the patient to receive Charity Care for her hospital stay, therefore, alleviated some of their concerns. The patient was referred to Social Services for further assistance that she may qualify for. Proposal
What happens to new moms who have varying SDOH (social determinants of health), with no access to the internet, insurance, primary care physician, OB-GYN? Where do they get their education/information? During the pregnancy, women should be educated on what vaccinations their newborn/infant will be receiving during their first year. Any questions or concerns should be address at this time. If the patient did not receive the vaccinations recommended during her last trimester they should be offered to the patient prior to discharge. Patients and family members should be assessed for any varying SDOH so any needed resources can be available to them (Falkner, 2018). Educating the patient/family by using the teach-back method allows for any misunderstandings to be rectified and the nurse can assess where more education is needed. Included in their discharge instructions should be educational information printouts ex: vaccinations and schedule, what to expect after having a baby, breastfeeding, possible postpartum depression, etc. Nurses need to advocate for the patient if a referral is needed for Social Service. Social Services can help the patient with an insurance application, Charity Care for the hospital stay, referral to Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program, (Falkner, 2018) and other appropriate programs. This enables the patient to be engaged in their own health and compliant on their plan of care. In addition to the referrals and educational information, they should already have a well-baby and a postpartum appointment scheduled. References: Falkner, A. (2018). Cultural awareness.
