A study by the United States government shows that over the past years, human activities have been contributing to climate change not only in the US but also in other countries. Two main concerns as a result of global climate change in the United States are drought and increased raised in water sea level (Gergel, Nijssen, Abatzoglou, Lettenmaier & Stumbaugh, 2017). The two main regions in the United States experiencing drought are the Midwest and Southern parts. Climate experts in the United States indicate that the Western part of the country has been having less rainfall in the past 50 years. Weather specialists indicate that if the climate continues to change, other parts of the country will start experiencing this drought challenge.
One impact that drought is creating in the United States is the reduced production of agricultural products. The reason why agricultural production is reducing is that most extensive farming activities rely on rainfall water (Gergel, Nijssen, Abatzoglou, Lettenmaier & Stumbaugh, 2017). Since climate change has affected the rain patterns, these farmers are experiencing challenges as they seek other alternative sources of water. The other concern of climate change in the United States is the rising sea level in the coastlines. The rising sea level is a result of climate heat up that is melting the glaciers, melting of the sea ice, and diminishing snow cover. The United States government needs to address concerns since they are a major threat to the country. Increased shortage of water can continue affecting agricultural production resulting in famine. The rising seawater level can affect the residents along the coastlines and the water may end up displacing these residents.
Another developed country experiencing challenges of global climate change in Russia. Climate change has occurred mainly in these developed countries due to industrial activities such as the emission of carbon gas and other harmful gaseous materials in the atmosphere. Global climate change has affected Russia’s weather patterns mainly precipitation and the country’s average temperature (Anisimov & Orttung, 2019). The two major concerns as a result of climate change in Russia is increased temperature especially in the northern latitudes and increased health risks as a result of increased temperatures.
Russians weather experts have discovered that the average temperature annually has been rising by over 0.4 degrees Celsius every decade in the Western parts of the country (Anisimov & Orttung, 2019). The increased temperature has resulted in severe changes in the country such as melting of ice cover especially in the northern parts. Glaciers in mountain areas are melting creating changes in the sea drainage basin of the country. In terms of health risks, climate change has resulted to increase in heat intensity from the sun in summer and spring. Direct heat from the sun has heat waves that affect the human skin creating severe disorders in the human body.
Therefore, the national government of Russia has developed strategies to address these two major concerns due to climate change. Failing to address these two climate concerns will result in drought in the future and human health will be at greater risk of diseases such as skin cancer. One of the strategies that the Russian government has taken in addressing these climate concerns is creating awareness among public members concerning how citizens can protect themselves from dangerous heat waves (Anisimov & Orttung, 2019). Another strategy is that the government has enforced regulations on industrial activities that result in the emission of harmful gases contributing to climate change.
Global climate change has not only affected the developed countries but also undeveloped countries that are experiencing the negative impact of climate change. There is a relationship that exists between poverty and climate change since climate change affects low-income communities in developing countries. However, undeveloped countries are not only victims of climate change but also, have contributed to global climate change. Research shows that developing countries have contributed 63 percent of carbon emissions in the atmosphere (Hambira, Saarinen & Moses, 2020). Most of these undeveloped countries are African countries and the most affected country in Botswana.
Over the past years, key climate elements; rainfall, and temperature in Botswana have changed significantly. Change in these key elements has resulted in two main concerns: drought and dangerous heat waves (Hambira, Saarinen & Moses, 2020). Drought has resulted in a shortage of water in the country due to annual low rainfall. Water is an essential resource in such a developing country since water is a driver in various economic activities such as agriculture and industrial production. Also, the shortage of water has affected the health lives of Botswana citizens. The second concern is as a result of dangerous heat waves affecting the human skin directly. These dangerous heat waves are directly coming from the sun due to the presence of carbon and other gases in the atmosphere. These gaseous substances have affected the Ozone layer that is responsible for absorbing direct heat waves from the sun.
The government of Botswana needs to develop strategies on how they can solve drought and dangerous heat waves. Failing to address these two issues will result in cases of food shortage due to drought and human health will be at greater risk due to the direct heat waves. One strategy that the government of Botswana can implement to address the issue of drought is coming up with alternative sources of water that will supply water to citizens continuously. Concerning the issue of direct heat waves, the national government of Botswana can create health awareness of how its citizens can keep themselves healthy from the heat waves.
Public health nurses can implement several health promotional strategies that can act as solutions to the challenges of global climate change. One strategy that public health nurses can play in mitigating global climate change is through mobilization (Lilienfeld, Nicholas, Breakey & Corless, 2018). Nurses are in a good position to mobilize and inform members of society to respond to climate change. Also, nurses can address government officials in advocating for climate change measures. Another strategy nurses can implement in addressing the challenges of global climate change is through research (Lilienfeld, Nicholas, Breakey & Corless, 2018). Nurses can carry out studies by identifying various issues in the environment that can affect the environment negatively.

The following conversation is based on an article about Corona Virus, a modern infectious disease that is spreading over the world. Tanu Singhal’s article, ‘A Review of Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19),’ provides comprehensive information on the emergence and transmission of Coronavirus Disease-2019 (Covid-19). A unique virus known as Severe-Acute-Respiratory-Syndromic-Virus (SARS) is responsible for Corona Virus sickness, which affects the respiratory system, according to Singhal (2020). (SARS-CoV 2). In September of this year, medical professionals in Wuhan, China, discovered the virus during an out-of-office break in the city.
Tanu Singhal adds that by the end of January 2020, the Corona Virus had spread across a large area, prompting the World Health Organization to designate the virus a global health emergency. “Corona Virus is a global health emergency,” says Tanu Singhal. As of the end of February 2020, the Corona virus disease was spreading around the world in some parts of the world (Singhal, 2020). Following the disorder’s widespread spread, the World Health Organization categorizes the condition as a global pandemic requiring immediate medical intervention. It was COVID-19, which comes from the word Corona Virus 2019, that the World Health Organization assigned to this condition induced by SARS-CoV2.
The article goes on to discuss how the Corona Virus can spread from one person to another by respiratory droplets and various forms of physical contact involving bodily fluids, among other things. Medical researchers in China conducted research and determined that more than 75000 instances of Corona Virus were as a result of transmission through the respiratory system (Killerby, Biggs, Midgley, Gerber & Watson, 2020). Transmission through the respiratory system happens when an infected individual comes into close contact with another who is Corona Virus positive, and this transmission is aided by the symptoms of Corona Virus infection, such as coughing and sneezing. Another way to get the Corona Virus is by contact with infected individuals or by being in the same environment as them.
According to the literature, there is a relationship between the Covid-19 causal agent, susceptible individuals, and the environmental factors that contribute to the outbreak. Due to the fact that a person’s health status influences the transmission of the causative agent to that individual, there is a relationship between the three factors. Certain environmental factors, on the other hand, are influencing the spread of Covid-19’s causal agent, according to the researchers. In terms of susceptible individuals, the elderly and those suffering from chronic illnesses such as chronic respiratory ailments, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are at a particularly high risk of getting SARS-CoV2 (Kleen, Galdon, MacDonald & Dalgleish, 2020). According to recent research, older persons in several nations are more vulnerable to Covid-19 hazards than their younger counterparts. It is the physiological changes that occur with age that are the most significant factor in increasing the chance of contracting Covid-19’s causative agent in the elderly population. These physiological changes have a negative impact on the health of these elderly people, exposing them to various disorders that are not related to Covid-19. Aging is a biological age characterized by the continuous damage of cells in various parts of the body, some of which are responsible for keeping the body safe from disease-causing organisms, and some of which are responsible for maintaining the body’s ability to fight disease (Kleen, Galdon, MacDonald & Dalgleish, 2020). If this cellular damage continues, the body’s ability to fight external infections, such as the causal agent of Covid-19, will deteriorate. When it comes to older people, a weakened immune system is the primary reason why the Covid-19 causal agent will be more prevalent. SARS-CoV-2 survival on surfaces is influenced by a variety of environmental factors, according to research findings. For example, SARS-CoV-2 is unable to survive for more than three days on surfaces that are directly exposed to the sun. The reason why the Covid-19 causal agent cannot survive on such surfaces is that the extreme intensity of sunlight causes the Covid-19 causal agent to become inactive, which makes it impossible for it to survive (Dabisch, Schuit, Herzog, Beck, Wood, Krause & Ratnesar-Shumate, 2021). As a result of this action of sunlight, it is possible that the proliferation of the Covid-19 causative agent in locations with long periods of sunlight will be limited in these areas. Tropical regions, for example, experience high levels of light intensity throughout the year and should be considered. The flow of air is another environmental component that may have an impact on the dissemination of the Covid-19 causative agent. Even though people are thousands of miles apart, the air conditioner and wind direction have an impact on the propagation of droplet illnesses. Infected areas can be reached by strong airflow from an area having remnants of the Covid-19 causative agent, enabling the spread of the Covid-19 virus to uninfected areas.
Despite the fact that medical practitioners have not yet discovered a direct cure for Corona Virus, public health nurse leaders can play a vital role in reducing the spread of the Covid-19 virus infection. Finding, reporting, collecting, and analyzing medical information on the Corona Virus is one of the most important roles nurse leaders may play in this area. Nurse leaders can be successful in Covid-19 research if they use modern medical resources to accomplish their goals. One of the medical research tools is the evidence-based practice paradigm, which allows them to interact with patients who are recovering from Corona Virus. This is one of the medical research tools (Xu, Yang, Du, Peng, Hu, Wang & Chang, 2020). Applying the evidence-based model on Covid-19 patients can assist nurse leaders to understand the nature and development of Covid-19.
The development of viable mitigating techniques to limit the spread of Covid-19 among the general public can also be done by medical professionals. One of these tactics is to provide health education to members of the public on topics such as safety precautions and personal cleanliness. Health education can have a long-term impact because it can demonstrate to people of the community how proper concepts of cleanliness can become a part of their everyday lives (Gray, Kurscheid, Mationg, Williams, Gordon, Kelly & McManus, 2020). Providers of rapid remedies to patients suffering from ailments related with Covid-19 is another technique that may be implemented by health professionals. However, the Corona Virus is causing complications and the most serious complication is a type of pneumonia known as the 2019 novel Corona Virus-infected Pneumonia (NCIP). Another strategy that medical practitioners can develop to address the spread of Covid-19 is coming up with alternative medical services that will reduce physical contact, especially in health facilities. A good example of an alternative healthcare service door to door services where nurses will treat patients from their homes.

Health Indicators and Health Disparities

Nursing
Title: Health Indicators and Health Disparities
Number of sources: 5
Paper instructions:
Public health nurses play an important role in addressing the health needs identified during the assessment process. Only by close examination of health data can health professionals identify health disparities and take steps to address them. Numerous sources of community-level health data are available to guide public health nurses as they partner with communities in the pursuit of health for all. It is vital that all public health professionals have an understanding of the health status of their city, county, region, state, and nation, as well as global health issues of concern. This week, you will analyze health indicators for your own community, identify potential health disparities seen in your own area, and then compare your findings with your classmates from across other localities.
For this Discussion, you will examine multiple localities to identify health disparities within and across states for a given health indicator.
To Prepare:
• Review this week’s Learning Resources.
• Take the Health Equity Quiz found on the Unnatural Causes website.
• Research health indicators (outcomes) for your state, city, and/or county.
• Research a state other than your own that is similar demographically with higher health indicators.

Post a health indicator for which your state ranks high and explain why you think your state ranks high on this indicator. Then, identify a health indicator for which your state ranks low and explain why you think your state ranks low on this indicator.
Compare your findings to a state that is similar to yours demographically but has higher indicators. Explain why you think this state is achieving higher health indicators than yours.

Health Indicators and Health Disparities are two important topics in public health.
Name of the student, institution, and date
Health indicators are a way of summarizing information about the health of a population or the performance of a system in use. Among the most widely used health indicators in the United States is life expectancy, which is measured in years. The calculation of life expectancy begins at birth and estimates the length of time an individual born today would live if the present mortality rates for all age groups remained constant throughout the course of a person’s life. The length of one’s life is a measure of the quality of healthcare available in various geographical places. Despite having similar demographics, Michigan County has a long life expectancy and a low mortality rate, in contrast to Wisconsin, which has a declining mortality rate and a rising life expectancy.
County Health Rankings and Roadmaps data revealed that the life expectancy in Michigan County is rather high, with an overall average of 78.1 years, according to the data collected by the organization. The figure represents an average distribution across different races, with Asians having an average age of 90.9 years, blacks having an average age of 73.6 years, whites having an average age of 78.8 years, Hispanics having an average age of 81.9 years, and people of other races having an average age of 77.2 years (County Health Rankings & Roadmaps). The numbers show an increased trend, growing from 76.2 years in the year 2000 to 76.2 years in the year 2010. Michigan’s life expectancy is very close to the national average of 77.9 years, which is the highest in the country (County Health Rankings & Roadmaps). According to these figures, the quality of healthcare in Michigan is superior than that of other states in the United States.
It is likely that the improved adoption of healthcare services and the improvement in living standards in Michigan contributed to the state’s increasing life expectancy. The percentage of uninsured is comparatively low, with an average of 7 percent, compared to a national figure of 10 percent, according to the latest data. A high rate of insurance enrollment indicates that more individuals are taking advantage of health-care services, improving their health, and living longer lives (Klein, & Huang, 2010). People’s living standards are also excellent, as evidenced by the fact that the median household income is a towering $59,500 and that an overwhelming 82 percent of the population can afford automobiles (County Health Rankings & Roadmaps). Income inequalities in Michigan are also very low, at 4.6, compared to a national average of 4.9, which suggests that people in Michigan can afford healthcare and take good care of themselves. Another indication of Michigan’s high living standard is the fact that the state’s income inequalities are also very low, at 4.6, compared to a national average of 4.9.
Michigan has a low mortality rate, which can be attributed to the minimal number of deaths that have been reported. Low rates of child, newborn, and premature death are observed in the county when age-adjusted mortality is considered. There are also few deaths due to overdoses, motor vehicle crashes, and other causes of death in the United States (Klein, & Huang, 2010). The mortality rate must decrease as a result of a decrease in the number of deaths. Increased accessibility to health-care services is a second factor that could have resulted in a reduction in mortality (Klein, & Huang, 2010). The population-to-healthcare-provider ratios are much lower than the national average, allowing for greater access to healthcare providers and, consequently, greater utilization of healthcare services (Burrows et al., 2018). According to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the population to primary care physician ratio is 1,270:1, suggesting that one primary care physician serves 1270 people. In comparison, the ratio for the rest of the country is 1,320:1, meaning that a primary care physician in Michigan serves a larger number of people than a primary care physician in the rest of the country (County Health Rankings & Roadmaps: Michigan). People in Michigan also participate in preventative healthcare services such as flu vaccinations and mammography screenings, with participation rates in Michigan significantly higher than those in the rest of the country.
While Wisconsin has a demographic makeup that is very similar to Michigan’s, the state’s overall mortality rate has been increasing in recent years. This is remarkable given the fact that the county had lower rates of chronic disease fatalities, infant mortality, and premature age-adjusted mortality than the national average (CDC, National Center for Health Statistics: Wisconsin). Wisconsin’s old population is expanding, and people are living longer lives as a result of this. An rising proportion of deaths are being caused by unintended injuries such as falls, drowning, drug overdoses, motor vehicle accidents, and poisonings, rather than purposeful causes (CDC, Injury prevention & control). Deaths from unintentional injuries are usually a result of environmental factors, such as the degree of urbanization. A decline in urbanization increases the risk of injury mortalities.
In conclusion, health indicators tell of the wellbeing of a community or a county. Michigan’s health indicators show an improvement in people’s wellbeing. It has an increased life expectancy and low mortality rate because people increasingly have access to medical care services. But, the situation is slightly different in Wisconsin county because although there has been an improvement in the provision and the uptake of healthcare services, the mortality rate continues to rise over time. The increasing deaths result from increased unintentional injuries, which are a factor of the decline in urbanization.

A disaster is a serious problem that can occur for a short period of time or for an extended period of time, causing problems for humans and the environment. There are two types of disasters that can occur in a given region: disasters caused by humans and disasters caused by nature (Novellino, Jordan, Ager, Bateson, Fleming & Confuorto, 2019). When a disaster is caused by human activity, it is referred to as a “man-made disaster.” Natural disasters, on the other hand, are dangerous events that occur as a result of natural processes that are beyond human control. A volcano eruption, which is a natural disaster, is the most likely disaster to occur in my community, and it is the most likely disaster to occur. The fact that my community is located at the foot of a volcanic mountain increases the likelihood of a volcanic eruption.

A volcano eruption is a sudden break in the earth’s surface that allows ash, gaseous substances, and lava to erupt and spread over a large area of the planet (Inan, Beydoun & Pradhan, 2018). As a result of this eruption, a mountain adjacent to my community was formed, resulting in a long-term climate change. The mountain next to my community is a volcanic mountain, but there are no signs that it will erupt anytime soon, despite its volcanic nature. The majority of active volcanic mountains show signs of eruption that can be detected early enough by scientists to issue a warning before an eruption occurs. Frequent earthquakes and large areas of hot ground are two signs that a volcano is about to erupt, among other things. However, because a volcanic eruption is a natural disaster that is beyond the control of humans, I cannot consider my community to be sufficiently protected from an eruption.

A volcanic eruption has the potential to cause health problems in my community, and it is possible that these problems will arise. In the majority of cases, volcanic eruptions produce ash particles, which can cause silicosis if inhaled by a person who is exposed to the volcanic ash particles. Silicosis is a chronic body disorder that affects the lungs, causing breathing difficulties and lung scarring as a result (Sato, Shimosato & Klinman, 2018). Silicosis is derived from the word silica, and it occurs when a person comes into contact with silica crystalline particles, which are present in the environment. Silicosis is a dangerous health challenge for a human being because it results in long-term breathing difficulties for the individual.

In addition to short-term health challenges, mountain eruptions have the potential to cause long-term health challenges in my community as well. As a result of volcanic gases being released into the atmosphere, people can experience respiratory difficulties such as runny noses, wheezing, and sore throats (Mueller, Cowie, Horwell, Hurley & Baxter, 2020). Eye infection caused by volcanic gases is another short-term health hazard caused by volcanic gases. Itchy eyes, continuous tearing, and corneal abrasions are all possible symptoms. Skin irritation is another short-term health effect that can occur in my community as a result of a volcanic eruption, particularly when the volcanic particles come into contact with water.

Heart disorders are another issue that my community members may have to deal with as a result of the eruption. As a result of the increased concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere caused by volcanic gases, heart disorders can develop (Mueller, Cowie, Horwell, Hurley & Baxter, 2020). When an individual breathes in air that contains more than 3 percent carbon dioxide, the heart rate of that individual increases as the body attempts to restore balance to the carbon dioxide levels in its own body by exhaling more carbon dioxide. In addition to cancer, volcanic eruptions can cause long-term health problems for members of my community. Inhaling air that contains traces of metal elements can result in the accumulation of metal particles in the body, which can lead to the development of cancer later on in life.

Because volcanic eruptions are natural disasters that are beyond the control of humans, scientists have not yet discovered a way to completely stop a volcanic eruption from occurring. Scientists in the field of geography are still studying eruption processes, and they may be able to develop permanent methods of preventing an eruption in the future. Scientists, on the other hand, have devised means by which human beings can protect themselves from the dangers of a volcanic eruption in the future (Sato, Shimosato & Klinman, 2018). In accordance with scientists’ recommendations, my local government officials have put in place some disaster plans for the communities that live around this volcanic mountain. Further to this, health professionals and other non-governmental organizations have developed health strategies to assist our community members in the event of a volcanic eruption.

An evacuation program, for example, is one strategy that my local government has implemented to protect the members of my community. Because scientists can detect a volcanic eruption in advance, the national government’s evacuation program will be able to assist my community members in evacuating the mountain region before it becomes too late. Another strategy that the local government has implemented to protect the residents of my community from the effects of a volcanic eruption is the provision of pre-designed building plans. The local government has provided guidelines on how residential buildings in my community, particularly those with doors and windows, should be designed by contractors. Residents of well-designed buildings can be protected from hazardous gases that may be released by the volcanic mountain without the residents’ knowledge.

However, health professionals have developed strategies for responding to a volcanic eruption, which they have implemented in collaboration with other non-governmental organizations (NGOs). For example, health practitioners are providing health education to the public about how to respond to a volcanic eruption, which is one of the strategies being implemented. In this health education program, these health professionals are guiding members of the community on how to dress in protective clothing that covers their entire body when exercising. Another important component of the health education program is the discussion of how community members can respond to challenges such as respiratory problems caused by hazardous gases in the environment. My community, when compared to the practices health practitioners have implemented around Mount Sinabung, I believe it is relatively safe from a volcanic eruption (Sato, Shimosato & Klinman, 2018). The reason why I believe my community is safe is that all of the measures implemented by health practitioners in Mount Sinabung correspond to the measures implemented by the local government in our community.

Finally, my community is well-prepared for disaster management, particularly in the event of a volcanic eruption, as previously stated. One thing I’ve learned about my community’s preparedness for disaster management is that its members rely on the local government to ensure their safety in disaster situations. Other observations include the fact that my community has demonstrated a strong willingness to adapt positively to any changes that may result from natural or man-made disasters.

Academic Success and Professional Development Plan

What is an academic success plan? What is an academic success strategy, and how does it work?
Your Academic Success Plan, which is comprised of specific, attainable actions, allows you to take charge of developing a personalized approach to help you reach your academic objectives.
Professional growth entails a variety of tasks and responsibilities.
Throughout education, the term “professional development” can refer to a wide range of specialized training, formal education, or advanced professional learning that is intended to assist administrators, teachers, and other educators in improving their professional knowledge, competence, and effectiveness.
What is a professional development plan, and how does it work?
In order to enable ongoing improvement and career development, a staff member’s professional development plan defines the goals, required skill and competency development, and targets that must be met. When a staff member is identified as needing improvement, it is not appropriate to wait until after that person has been identified.
What is the best way to write a professional development plan?
The steps involved in creating an IPDP are as follows:
List your professional responsibilities and activities. Develop an understanding of your existing roles and obligations as a graduate student.
Evaluate your abilities and knowledge. Make a list of your abilities and knowledge.
Establish objectives…. Develop a plan of action….
Maintain a record of your progress.

Academic Success and Professional Development Plan Part 4: Research Analysis
The selected integrative literature review article is by Nibbelink and Brewer (2018) on the topic decision‐making in nursing practice. Researchers and students can find the article through the link https://doi.org/10.1111/jocn.14151 or https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/jocn.14151. The role of the article is to investigate the role of decision-making in the nursing practice.
The concepts presented in the article indicate that nurses utilize various factors in the decision-making process. The factors include awareness, autonomy, situation, understanding the patient situation, and education. For instance, the article indicates that nurse bring a variety of experiences in their practice. Nurses handle patients depending on their level of education and past experiences with similar patients.
Topic of Interest: Decision-making in nursing practice
Research Article: Include full citation in APA format, as well as link or search details (such as DOI) Nibbelink, C. W., & Brewer, B. B. (2018). Decision‐making in nursing practice: An integrative literature review. Journal of Clinical Nursing, 27(5-6), 917-928. https://doi.org/10.1111/jocn.14151

Professional Practice Use:
One or more professional practice uses of the theories/concepts presented in the article The practice issue include the role of decision-making factors in the practice of nursing.
Research Analysis Matrix
Add more rows if necessary Strengths of the Research Limitations of the Research Relevancy to Topic of Interest Notes

The article is peer-reviewed. The article is generalized and does not cover specific areas of decision-making The topic is relevant since decision-making is essential in the nursing practice. Nurse students and nurses can use the article to understand the value of decision-making factors in their daily practice.
Justification of the Article
I would recommend the article in the nursing practice since it highlights some of the factors that influence decision-making. The factors include awareness, autonomy, situation, understanding the patient’s situation, and education. Nurses should be aware of the factors that influence their decision. The factors can influence the decisions positively or negatively.
Academic Success and Professional Development Plan
I will add the article to the academic resources that I will use to enhance my decision-making process in the nursing practice. My approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research is to find out the methodology, the theories, findings, and summary of the article. The information will help me to identify if an article is important in the nursing practice. One of the strategies that I used to locate the appropriate article is to find peer-reviewed resources in the university library. I had to set the parameters such as finding an article that is at least five years old and indicating that the article should be peer-reviewed. The second approach is to indicate the topic clearly to help me locate the appropriate materials.
The resource I intend to use in the future is by White et al. (2019). The article deals with the benefits of using decision-making to eliminate fear and anxiety among nurse students. The article is important to help nurses determine the best decisions without feeling anxious. The approach is effective in improving the quality of decisions and patient outcomes.

A peer-reviewed article
The article is too general to cover specific decision-making areas.
The topic is crucial since decision-making is vital in nursing.
The article can help nursing students and nurses comprehend the importance of decision-making elements.
Article Justification
I would recommend the paper in nursing practice because it highlights some of the decision-making considerations. Factors include self-awareness, autonomy, situation, and education. Nurses should be aware of their decision-making variables. Factors can positively or negatively impact decisions.
Academic and Professional Success Plan
I will add the paper to my academic resources to improve my nursing decision-making process. To locate and analyze peer-reviewed research, I look for the article’s methodology, theories, findings, and summary. The data will help me determine an article’s relevance to nursing practice. Finding peer-reviewed resources in the university library was one of my tactics for finding the right article. I had to specify parameters like identifying a five-year-old article that should be peer-reviewed. The second method is to explicitly indicate the topic.
I’ll be using White et al. in the future (2019). The article discusses using decision-making to reduce fear and anxiety in nursing students. The article is vital in assisting nurses in making sound decisions. The method improves decision-making and patient outcomes.

Part 1: Developing an Academic and Professional Network

When was the last time you read Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions and Several Steps in my Sickness—Meditation XVII?

Unless you are a student of 17th-century poetry, you may not be all that familiar with this piece by author John Donne. However, you may be much more familiar with one of its well-known phrases: “No man is an island.”

As you begin your journey toward achieving your academic and professional goals, you have a great opportunity to network with academics and professionals who can help ensure you do not travel alone. This network can help to clarify your own vision for success and can help guide you now and in the future. To paraphrase Donne, no one is an island. Academic Success Professional Development Plan.

Academic and Career Plan Template

Sally Corbin, RN

17 Jan 2020

In today’s business world, advanced preparation is critical to achieving academic and professional success. Professional and academic success depends heavily on the network built. The network consists of specialized team members and individuals who contribute to academic and professional achievement in medicine (Siciliano et al., 2018). So, this paper outlines numerous academic and professional connections that have helped me succeed academically and professionally as a practicing nurse.
For example, my academic performance as a nurse practitioner would be dependent on my instructor and classmates’ support. It would be motivating as a Registered Nurse and Nurse Practitioner to have professors and peers help guide the study process. If I need help with research, study, or course completion, the instructor is always willing to help (Siciliano et al., 2018). Academic friends also help me succeed in class by helping me understand concepts that the instructor may not have covered.
Professionally, it is also important to establish relationships that can help you succeed at work. Having a strong network in the medical sector is critical to a successful career. Having a nurse and nurse practitioner mentor has also helped me become a good RN. The nurse practitioner would guide me through my practicals and rounds as a new nurse practitioner. The nursing mentor would choose what is best for me and how I may advance professionally. It also increases your chances of getting considered for future Nurse Practitioner Psychiatric positions.

A/P Networking Week 1 | Part 1

The academic and professional networks I have chosen to aid me through the Nurse Practitioner program are listed below. Each network member helps me advance my career.

MEMBER 1

Dr. Rsaul

Jacksonville Psychiatric Assoc.

Academic or Professional:

Why I chose this person/team and how they will help me succeed in the MSN program and as a nurse:

Dr. Rsaul is an adult and child psychiatrist. I chose him as my mentor because of his extensive psychiatric experience. His practical experience and skills can help me become a better Nurse Practitioner. As a former patient, he often maintained, “To obtain optimal health is to strive both physically and mentally.” Like Dr. Rsaul, I strive to be a nurse practitioner who treats all patients equally. Quality is indisputably important in all care interventions, and reviving the patient’s life is always necessary. I will guarantee that every patient appointment is tailored to their current and future health needs.

MEMBER 2

University of Walden

Facility & Staff

This tool can help me read articles written by doctors who have conducted actual research. All of the techniques I’ve acquired can help me succeed as a nurse practitioner student.
Conclusion
The chosen professionals and academics are known to help me achieve my goal of being a successful practicing nurse. For example, in academics, professors and classmates guided me through the activities that were essentially encouraged to become one of the leading performers in medical classes (Jackson, 2017). Professionally, the chosen persons aided in adapting to professional procedures and evaluating the aims required to become a successful operator in hospitals (Siciliano et al., 2018). Having a strong network of professional and academic teams and individuals will help the nurse practitioner transition into her new career.

Week 2 | Resources and Strategies

In general, or in my specialty, I have identified the following academic resources and/or strategies.

Directions: Identify and describe three academic resources or methodologies relevant to the MSN program, and three professional resources relevant to nursing practice in general or your specialization in particular. Explain how you plan to use these tools academically and professionally.

RESOURCE/STRATEGY 1

My study plans will be based on my current employment and future career aspirations. I will use the Walden University Writing Center as an academic resource. My goal is to learn as much as I can about the nursing profession. Studying the writing center’s academic materials will help me increase my expertise. The writing center will also help me improve my writing skills by teaching me about different referencing techniques. Using the university writing center will help me learn a range of topics and finish my course quickly. Part 3: Promoting Academic Integrity and Professional Ethics

SCHOOLS/STRATEGY 2
My professors will be useful throughout my course. Our lecturers have access to academic resources and information essential for nursing success. Having them as a resource will help me obtain important information about becoming a registered nurse. My teachers can also help me choose the right policy and support groups for my study. To create positive relationships with the MSN course lecturers is my goal. So I can get all the help I need for my studies.

SCHOOLS/STRATEGY 3

My peers will be useful academic resources in my study. Because we are in the same course, my peers can help me understand various subjects. Working in groups helps us expand our understanding. So I will focus on building great peer relationships. Interacting with them and exchanging ideas and concepts about the MSN program will be required. Engaging other students will help me finish my nursing course.

RESOURCE/STRATEGY 1

My healthcare mentor is a registered nurse. Because my mentor has been a nurse for a long time, he knows exactly what to expect. The nurse practitioner mentor has dealt with many patients. Having a mentor is to help me make career decisions. He gives me excellent knowledge about field experiences that can help me improve my nursing profession.

RESOURCE/STRATEGY 2
The Welcome Home facility will also be used in my research. I’ll spend a lot of time learning about how nurses work in the company Thus, my hospital experiences will help me obtain knowledge and reassess my nursing skills. Understanding the field expectations as an RN practitioner would greatly enhance my nursing career. This facility will allow me to immediately engage in my nursing profession.

3 RESOURCES/STRATEGIES

My MSN program counselor will also be a career resource. My adviser has been working for a long time. During that time, he got valuable patient care experience. He has also gained important skills for job advancement. My main goal in working with my adviser is to learn new skills and knowledge. My objective of becoming a psychiatric nurse will be developed directly with my advisor.

Conclusion
The selected professional and academic individuals are known to make a successful push to my interest in becoming a successful practicing nurse. For instance, in the academic field, the individuals such as instructors and peers played a sensitive role in guiding me through the practices that were essentially encouraged to become one of the leading performers in the medical classes (Jackson, 2017). In the professional contexts, the selected individuals also played a significant role in becoming a successful nurse by helping adapt to the professional practices and considering the intentions necessary in becoming a successful operator in the hospitals (Siciliano et al., 2018). Therefore, having a strong network of professional and academic teams and individuals would be instrumental when transitioning into the nurse practitioner’s new role.

Introduction
According to the research article by Martinengo et al. (2020), it is estimated that there are 800,000 successful suicide incidences globally per year. There is a need for proper assessment of patients for suicide ideations at all levels to ensure their safety. Patients who are poorly or not assessed for suicide might successfully commit suicide and hence loss of life that could have been prevented. Scholars, technologists, and clinicians have proposed different assessment techniques, including several steps that clinicians can use to ensure that the suicide element is identified while assessing a patient. In the table below, I analyze some of the articles where authors discuss research findings of suicide and assessment technique

Conceptual Framework

Describe the theoretical basis for the study (If there is not one mentioned in the article, say that here).**
The study was based on an investigation to establish the best way to assess suicide in individuals through suicide attempt information obtained from single-item self-report survey, multi-item self-report survey, and face-to-face clinical interview. Suicide rates in veteran and military populations in the United States are high. In a research article by Ronald (2017), suicide rates in women veterans is at 35 per 100,000 which is wat higher than the civilian counterparts. Mental health services among Americas returning veterans have been identified as scarce leading to the high suicide rates. The research article reviews the accuracy of methods used to identify individuals who are veterans and are at a high risk of suicide. It also covers the healthcare interventions that have been implemented in the veteran population to tackle the suicide problem The research article assesses the use of technology to prevent suicide through mobile applications on Google play. These are applications that developed to assess depression and suicide risk in individuals Suicidal behavior are very complicated to determine and manage. There are a variety of elements including biological, physiological, psychological, and social aspects that could be the main causes of suicide behaviors in individuals. Suicide behaviors can also be linked to high-stress situations as well as changes in one’s lifestyle. (Castillo-Sánchez et al., 2020)
The article aims at identifying machine learning techniques used to predict suicide in individuals that use social networks
Design/Method

Describe the design and how the study was carried out (In detail, including inclusion/exclusion criteria). The research design was made of Non-experimental studies used to evaluate the relationship between suicide attempt history information that’s collected through a single-item self-report survey, multi-item self-report survey, and face-to-face clinical interview. Inclusion was based on participants’ endorsement of a suicide attempt history on a prescreening survey. Excluding those who did not endorse past suicidal attempt on the survey screening. This research study was based on trials, observational studies, and systematic reviews that apply to U.S. veterans and military personnel. Databases including MEDLINE, PsycINFO, SocINDEX, and Cochrane are the main sources that were used to provide the required articles
Eligible studies in the research included veteran, military populations, and demographically comparable nonveteran adults ages 18 and older from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. A Systematic review was conducted on mobile applications developed to assess depression and suicidal ideations. The applications were got in Google Play for android platforms and Apple’s App Store. The Inclusion criteria was based on searching mobiles apps using key words, such as “depression,” “depressed,” “depress,” “mood disorders,” “suicide,” and “self-harm” launched or updated January 2019 since January 2017. To select the relevant studies on this topic, the authors defined the following inclusion criteria:
English language,
Types of studies: Research paper, Clinical Trial and Case Study.
Published from 2010 up until December 2019.
Focus on suicide.
The studies include algorithms or models to estimate suicide risk using the social network.

Sample/Setting

The number and characteristics of
patients, attrition rate, etc.
Participants involved in the research were undergraduate students (N = 100) selected for study. Participants were ranged in age from 17 to 24 (M = 19.1 years, SD = 1.4), and the sample was 67% female (n = 67) and 32% male (n = 32). The breakdown of self-identified race used was: 62% White, 19% Black, 10% Hispanic/Latino, 3% Asian/Pacific Islander, 4% Mixed Race, and 2% Other Race.

There was a total of 7,788 citations that were reviewed, 681 articles were selected for full-text review, and 37 studies met inclusion criteria. 2690 applications were got with the initial search of app stores. These are applications that were potentially relevant in this area of study. Only Sixty-nine applications met inclusion criteria and were systematically assessed.

Categorization of the applications shows 20 depression management apps that represent 29%, 3 depression management and suicide prevention apps that represent 4%, and 46 suicide prevention apps representing
67% The authors retrieved 426 articles in the search conducted in research databases. After eliminating the duplicates, 424 items were selected for screening.
Major Variables Studied

List and define dependent and independent variables The study was an investigation to compare the measurement of suicide attempt history using a single-item survey, multi-item self – report survey with follow-up questions, and a semi-structured face-to-face clinical interview.
Dependent variable: Types of suicide History Assessment
Independent Variable: Suicide History This article is reviewing accuracy of methods used in the identification of individuals at risk of suicide, the effectiveness and adverse effects of health care interventions relevant to united states veterans and military personals and to reduce reduce suicide and suicide attempts
Independent Variable: Suicide and Suicide attempts

Dependent variable: Suicide risk Assessment methods Independent variable: Suicide / Self harm Ideations
Dependent Variable: Mobile applications that help to meet the unmet needs of people at risk
The major variable of the research article are individual adherence of suicide prevention advice in the management of depression and the available suicide prevention applications. The article reviews the art on the literature concerning the use of machine learning methods for suicide detection on social networks. According to article, the dependent variable is the machine learning methods that include Prism, Decision Tree (DT), Naïve Bayes (NB), RF and SVM. The independent variable is the suicide ideations experienced by people at risk
Measurement
Identify primary statistics used to answer clinical questions (You need to list the actual tests done). 1.Undergraduates (N = 4,847) completed Screening Phase 1, a prescreening survey
2. Completed a follow-up self-report survey as part of Screening Phase 2.
3. Screening Phase 3, which included a brief, face-to-face clinical interview. Nineteen studies of risk assessment methods to identify individuals at increased risk of suicide or suicide attempts evaluated 19 different approaches that were identified.
The research study used several suicide risk assessment methods and models that use retrospective electronic records data and clinical/patient rates instruments
English Language Full- text articles that were considered relevant were examined by two authors one being a physician and the other a doctoral investigator
Systematic assessment of the mobile applications meeting the inclusion criteria.
There were 20 depression management apps representing 29%, 3 depression management and suicide prevention apps representing 4%, and 46 suicide prevention apps that represent 67%

Six applications (9%), including two apps available in both app stores and downloaded more than one million times each, provided an inaccurate crisis helpline number. 65/69 apps of the apps included emergency contact information which is 94%. Also 46/69 apps had direct access to a crisis helpline representing a 67%. The study assessed suicide risk assessment models in social networks.
Data Analysis Statistical or
Qualitative findings

(You need to enter the actual numbers determined by the statistical tests or qualitative data). The study conducted a three phase non- experimental investigation that included self-survey, screening Phase 2, 67% reported a past attempt and 33% reported no past attempts and phase 3 that involved face to face clinical interviews.

According to the research article, measures, interventions, outcomes, and study participants were too diverse to be combined in statistical meta-analysis, and conclusions are based on qualitative synthesis. The suicide assessment methods demonstrated sensitivity greater than or equal to 80% or area-under-the-curve values that is greater or equal to 70 in single studies
The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Chi-square test in case each category had more than ten variables and two-tailed Fisher’s exact test if any of the categories in the contingency table had less than ten variables. The significance level was chosen at p 0.05. Systematic review to identify relevant papers that use suicide risk assessment models in social networks.
Findings and Recommendations

General findings and recommendations of the research Using a single item self-report assessment while assessment history of suicide is a big challenge for the clinicians in classifying prior suicide behaviors
Clinicians should routinely incorporate follow-up questions during suicide assessments when an individual endorses a suicide attempt history. Suicide risk assessment methods are known to be sensitive predictors of subsequent suicide and suicide attempts in individuals; however, the frequency of incorrect positive results limits their clinical utility and does not quality to be a safety measure to be used in safety planning. 69 applications targeting depression and suicide prevention include all six evidence-based suicide prevention techniques.
According to research results, Apple and Google’s app stores, as well as the health application business, have failed to self-govern and ensure quality and safety.

Recommendation
Providing suicide prevention information, for example, governance levels should be differentiated according on the risks and benefits to app users. It is necessary to improve the quality of suicide risk prediction model reports in the social network to benefit the users.
Appraisal and Study Quality

Describe the general worth of this research to practice.

What are the strengths and limitations of study?

What are the risks associated with implementation of the suggested practices or processes detailed in the research?

What is the feasibility of use in your practice? The study provides quality insight on how to assess those at high risk of suicide attempt in clinical settings to ensure their safety.

Although the sample included a relatively large number of individuals belonging to a high-risk demographic group, data were only collected at a single institution.

Clinical staff would require more training and education on how to assess suicide using additional steps. This might be costly for organizations and the need to ensure that clinical staff agree with the new procedures.
My practice being a psychiatric hospital, suicide is a major issue in our patients and all clinicians are supposed to ensure that the screen patients using the available procedures and protocols.
The study provides information on the effectiveness of the suicide risk assessment in preventing suicide,
This review was limited by its focus on veteran and military populations in the United States, which may have excluded important studies in other populations. The article is crucial for policy making in the public health to provide governance on the metal health apps launched to ensure their usefulness in preventing suicide
Strengths
A severe and detailed systematic review methodology was applied in the search for those applications that fit the criteria. This was done by a specialized search engine capable of retrieving the maximum number of applications without any boarder country restrictions hence an increased generalizability of the required findings
Limitations
Due to the stringent inclusion criteria, applications that are targeting other mental health disorders or illnesses were missed

Only four app store categories were selected and used in the search. Apps in other app store categories were missed and not included

In-app paid applications were no assessed in the study

Risks associated with the suggested practices
Apps are technology based and face the problem of data security, hackers and Privacy. There should be good security measures to ensure that user information is safe The study provides insight on the possible use of social networks in prediction and prevention of suicide. The study is using social networks which are the main forms of communication in the current world.

Limitations
This paper is only reviewing those studies that focus primarily on suicide risks. The selected papers are using a scoping review methodology in only four research databases and written in English language and yet their other research studies that can be available in different languages and databases

Key findings

It has been established according to the research that Single-item suicide risk assessment is not sufficient to provide vital information about the individual behavior. It is therefore imperative to use follow up questions and assessments Risk assessments are crucial, however due to its high possibility of having false positivity does not make it a clinical applicable instrument There is a good number of applications that are technology based and offer suicide assessment and prevention strategies to individuals that are at risk. However, few of these have a comprehensive approach including the six strategies discussed in the article Social networks can provide a crucial platform to predict and prevent suicidal attempt.

Outcomes

The single item assessment is not sufficient to provide more information to predict the patient’s next move in terms of suicide or self-harm. The research study indicates the importance of suicide risk assessment in mentally ill patients and individuals at risk of suicide. However, there is a clear indication of failure to be applied successfully in clinical practice where there is much need to save lives There is a failure of Apple and Google app stores, and the health app industry in self-governance, and quality and safety assurance. Governance levels should be stratified by the risks and benefits to users of the app, such as when suicide prevention advice is provided. It is necessary to improve the quality of suicide risk prediction model reports in the social network to benefit the users.
General Notes/Comments The study provides information on how to handle those at risk of attempting suicide by using multiple item assessment and face to face interviews.
Further study is recommended to assess the individual intervention plans. The study recommends collaboration between public health and mobile apps developers to promote more stratified that can help prevent suicide. The study provides insight on the possible use of social networks in prediction and prevention of suicide.

Suicide is the most significant cause of mortality in the United States, particularly among teens and young adults, with almost one million people dying each year. As demonstrated in our study, single-item attempt history screening questions can help identify potentially suitable research subjects. Although a history of suicide attempts is one of the best indicators of the risk of suicide death, little is known about how suicide attempts are reported differently depending on the assessment method (Hom et al., 2016). Individuals’ classifications of previous suicidal behaviors may be challenged by a single-item self-report evaluation of suicide attempt history, especially if not accompanied by defined terminology. Multiple questions or answer alternatives and the use and presentation of well-defined, consistent definitions could all benefit from being included in surveys. In addition, when a person admits to a history of suicide attempts during a face-to-face examination, physicians may find it beneficial to ask follow-up questions. This is in line with studies that emphasize the value of combining self-report psychopathology assessments with clinician assessments, mainly to improve symptom accuracy.
Risk assessment approaches are good sensitive prophets to subsequent suicide and suicide attempts among individuals at risk. However, they are limited by the false positives irregularities that seem to on the high rise and causing doubt. These methods should be refined, and clinical applications should be investigated in the future study. Additional RCTs of promising individual therapies and site-randomized population-level interventions are needed to support suicide prevention programs, as there is inconclusive evidence to support their use. This is applicable in the practice because a patient can be issued a multi-level risk assessment survey to identify those at risk for further evaluation.

Evidence-Based Project, Part 4: Recommending an Evidence-Based Practice Change
The severity of the health outcomes indicates that there is need for change. The suicide rates are high and reducing them is a priority. The organization appreciates that changes are needed to address the suicide rates using elaborate healthcare assessment (Martinengo et al., 2019). There is need for comprehensive assessment of patients with suicide ideation. The leadership is ready for changes to address the suicide rates. The leadership appreciates the importance of changes in the healthcare assessment to address the prevailing problem.
The current problem in the healthcare sector is that the number of suicide cases are on the rise. The high number of suicide patients is leading to unpreventable deaths. The deaths can be prevented by improving the assessment of suicidal ideation (Martinengo et al., 2019). There is need for comprehensive assessment of patients with suicide ideation. The assessment measures include collecting comprehensive information about a patient. Lack of appropriate measures is the major cause of the prevailing problem.
Appropriate interventions are necessary to address the prevailing problem of a high number of suicide cases. One of the proposed ideas is to enhance assessment patients for suicide or suicidal ideation (Nelson et al., 2017). The method is appropriate since it will lead to better mechanisms to prevent the occurrence. The prevention measures include counseling and other psychotherapeutic interventions. Other ideas include follow-up self-report survey as part of screening and brief face-to-face clinical interview as part of screening.
Knowledge transfer in the healthcare sector is important in empowering the healthcare workers. One of the mechanisms of knowledge transfer is to organize training sessions. Training workshops will empower the nurses and physicians on what they need to know about suicide assessment (Castillo-Sánchez et al., 2020). The training methods will comprise training manuals and guides to empower the healthcare workers. Another plan is to use a patient assessment template to examine suicidal ideation.
The measurable outcomes include improved mechanisms to enhance the patient assessment. According to Hom et al. (2016) improving the patient assessment will lead to better outcomes of collecting data about patients at risk of suicide. Another measurable outcome is reducing the number of patients who die of suicide. Identifying the patients at risk will lead to better outcomes such as interventions to prevent suicide. The nurses and physicians will acquire advanced skills to assess patients for suicidal ideation.R

Lessons Learned
The lessons learned show that it is vital to assess patients comprehensively to identify suicidal ideation. Suicidal ideation assessment is a critical tool in the prevention of suicide. I learned that healthcare workers without appropriate training can miss to identify depressed patients at risk of suicidal ideation. For instance, Martinengo et al. (2019) describes suicide prevention using technology and the benefits of clinical guidelines while Hom et al. (2016) examines the limitations of single-item assessment. The studies recommend improvements in the assessment methods.

HA3002: Ethical Issues in Health Assessment

HA3002: Ethical Issues in Health Assessment

With this patient’s right to privacy and confidentiality in mind, identify those whom you need to inform about her HIV-positive status. Provide support from scholarly references for your response. (1 paragraphs)
In line with the HIPAA rules regarding patient’s privacy and confidentiality, I am not obliged to inform anyone about the patient’s health status. HIPAA has set national standards that make it mandatory to protect individuals’ personal health information and medical records (Turner, 2018). The patient’s HIV status is personal, and I am prohibited from informing third parties about the patient’s status (Stievano & Tschudin, 2019). Besides HIPAA, state laws also prohibit healthcare and social service providers from disseminating a person’s HIV-related information without the individual’s written permission.
During the health assessment, your patient has revealed that her boyfriend does not know about her HIV-positive status. Briefly explain how you might explore the patient’s understanding of how her HIV positive status may impact her relationship and the health of her partner. Explain why you would take this approach. Support your approach with scholarly references. (1paragraphs)
I would ask her whether she knows the stage of her illness and the likelihood of passing the disease to a romantic partner. I would also ask her about her relationship and the openness of communication. Turner (2018) says that the decision to conceal or disclose an HIV-positive status is influenced by the patient’s fear, privacy, and stage of illness. Since the relationship is new, I would ask the patient if she would be willing to relay the news and whether she was concerned about the relationship ending after the disclosure. I will also inquire if the patient has a history of abuse. Palamaru et al. (2020) states that women with stories of abuse have more difficulty and fears of revealing their HIV status to romantic partners. But, I would insist on the need for disclosure because it would help her take steps to keep herself and her partner healthy.
Identify two actions you would take—or ensure are taken—in this scenario to preserve patient confidentiality. Support your response with reference to the ANA’s position paper on privacy and confidentiality. (1paragraphs)
I would take two actions to preserve the patient’s confidentiality. First, I would not disclose any information regarding the patient’s status to anyone (Palamaru et al., 2020). I would leave it to the patient to disclose the information to her partner, parents, or other people. Second, I would ensure that all identifiable patient information is secure and, when sharing, conceal the patient’s identity with a pseudo for areas where personal identifiers are not needed (El-sol et al., 2018). Concealing the patient’s identity is in line with privacy requirements and helps to ensure that the patient’s data is only used for legitimate purposes.
The Code of Ethics for Nurses was developed to provide guidance for administering quality and ethical care while upholding standards and obligations of the profession. Select one of the provisions of the Code and explain how you might apply this provision to guide your responses to the health assessment described in the scenario. Support your response with appropriate citations from scholarly references. (2paragraphs)
The code of ethics for nurses has nine provisions, among them the provision that the nurse must advocate, promote and protect the safety, health, and rights of the patient (Turner, 2018). In the current case, the provision mandates me to preserve the patient’s right to confidentiality and privacy. I will also protect my patient’s rights by not discussing the patient’s case with anyone without the patient’s consent.
I would also ensure that hard copies of the patient’s health records are stored away safely or shredded to keep the health information from leaking to unwanted persons (Palamaru, Mihai, & Toader, 2020). I also intend to protect the patient’s rights, including the right to the right dose, patient, drug, route, and the right time (Salvadori & Hahn, 2019). The patient also has the right to be treated respectfully and given the proper treatment, which the patient has consented to. Honoring the patient in these ways protects and improves the patient’s health.
Once your patient has revealed her HIV-positive status to you, what else do you need to think about and do in providing quality care? With a holistic approach to this woman’s care in mind, describe one subsequent action you might take. Explain how this action is in alignment with the Code of Ethics for Nurses. Support your response with appropriate citations to scholarly references. (2–paragraphs)
Once the patient has revealed her status, I need to think about the patient’s right to make decisions regarding their welfare. I would inform the patient of the need to start treatment for symptom management and disclosure her status to concerned persons (Joe, 2018). But, I would only inform, not coarse, the patient to take action. According to the first provision of the nursing code of ethics, nurses should practice with respect for human dignity and give the patients the right to self-determination (Stievano & Tschudin, 2019). As such, the patient has the right to make independent decisions regarding her health, and I have to support her, whichever direction she takes.
Second, as a health promoter, I would provide resources within my reach that would support the client on her journey towards better health. For example, I would link the patient to a psychologist who would help her understand her status and understand how her life would change after the diagnosis.
Soon after revealing her HIV-positive status to you during the health history, the patient appears to regret bringing it up. She is clearly worried and asks you if any of this information will be sent to her home, which she shares with her parents, or to her employer. Briefly explain how you would respond to her. Support your response with scholarly references. (2–paragraphs)
I would reassure the patient that her personal information cannot be shared without her consent. Only she has the power to decide those who can know about her status (Palamaru et al., 2020). I would let her know that the care we provide is patient-centered, and the patient makes all the decisions regarding her health (Salvadori & Hahn, 2019). As such, she had complete control over her health information.
I would also let her know of the HIPAA rules, state laws, and regulations at my workplace that refrain providers from sharing patients’ personal information (Joe, 2018). But, I would let her know of the information that may be shared within the healthcare setup and with whom it would be shared.
