Diverse Populations, Age and Interprofessional Health Promotion Resources
This paper is a 3-4 page project that is an analysis of a condition and resources on one health topic for the adult population throughout the lifespan. Consider the influence of socioeconomic status (SES), culture, gender, ethnicity, and spirituality on mental and physical health, as it relates specifically to age in adulthood. What interprofessional resources exist for the topic? The adult lifespan, young, middle and older adult, related risks to the issue should be addressed. (This topic is for the adult population, not adolescents). Are there interventions that benefit the outcome? Consider physiological, psychological and/ or iatrogenic risks. Epidemiological support should be included in the paper.
Be creative in how you address the Assignment. You may choose a specific health topic, social health issue, a health condition or create a family scenario. Consider life transitions and role change. Be sure to include behaviors affecting the risks for the issue or topic, addressing this across the adult lifespan. Again, resources on interprofessional collaboration should be clear and supported with evidence based sources. Analysis of health promotion issues and interprofessional collaboration covers all aspects of nursing. Master’s-prepared nurse educators, leaders, nurse practitioners and all specialty nursing fields are contributors to health promotion in populations across the life span. This Assignment is focused on the adult. You should choose a topic that affects your area of specialty focus as it relates to health promotion and epidemiology.
