hat do you consider the role of assisted living programs in America?

Unit VI Case Study

Review the website http://www.alfa.org

Part 1: What do you consider the role of assisted living programs in America? How is assisted living different from residence receiving care in a nursing home or rehabilitation center? Why is assisted living such a growing field of health care today?

Part 2: One of the career fields that should definitely come to the attention of CSU students is assisted living administration. Your training at CSU is a great start toward managing an assisted living facility, or perhaps even owning such a center. What could you do to prepare yourself for a career as administrator or CEO of an assisted living facility? What kinds of job opportunities currently exist in this field?

Discuss transcultural nursing strategies that promote population health

Order Description

Today more than 1.2 million people are living with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in the United States (CDC, 2016). The once terminal illness, which is the precursor to Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), has downgraded to a manageable chronic disease due to the creation of antiretroviral therapy (ART), improved health awareness, and behavioral prevention strategies.
Even though, various preventive interventions have been designed in efforts to prevent and decrease the incidence of HIV infections some populations are at increased vulnerability for contracting HIV. Historically, lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender individuals (LGBT) have been identified as a vulnerable population due to prejudices against this group, discriminatory practices, and social stigma. The vulnerability of these groups become even more disadvantageous when health barriers such as reduced access to healthcare, substance abuse, mental health disorders and lack of health insurance become a factor in utilizing health care. These social determinants coupled with increased health disparities disproportionately places this group at a higher risk of HIV transmission.
According to the Center for Disease and Control (2016), men who have men who have sex with men represent 2% of the United States population but contribute to over 50% of people living with HIV (PLWH). It is estimated that one in six MSM will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime based on the current HIV infection rates (CDC, 2016). Transgendered persons are even more susceptible to HIV infection; they accounted for the highest percentage of newly diagnosed cases in 2013 (CDC, 2016).
Presently, culturally sensitive and competent directed education regarding LGBT persons has been explored as a solution to prevent and decrease HIV transmission rates. The implementation of a culturally and linguistically competent LGBT education and training has the potential to reduce stigma, decrease health disparities and increase social awareness

• Discuss transcultural nursing strategies that promote population health
• Examine the relationship between transcultural nursing and social determinants of health
• Explore nursing theories that address health care to diverse populations

What happens in one part of the world has ripple effects through the other parts, including the United States.

Health conditions, including heart disease and respiratory infections, have no borders. What happens in one part of the world has ripple effects through the other parts, including the United States. Technology has created an even smaller world, with nurses in instant contact and eager to share information.You and your nursing colleagues live and work around this shrinking professional world. Your nursing experience working with diverse populations presents a rich opportunity to share your international health perspectives. This exercise is a growth opportunity in terms of how we see ourselves, the world, and how we interact with our patients during the health interview and health assessment process.In this week’s Discussion, your stories will illustrate relevant social and cultural differences among yourselves and your patients. The collective experience will expand your individual nursing knowledge; improve upon our cultural humility and perspectives, in order to foster social and culturally-sensitive health interviews and assessments. This, in turn, contributes to safer and higher quality outcomes for your patients. Consider how your sensitive care is expressed through choice of your words, maintaining a distance that is culturally appropriate, and utilizing other techniques to negotiate through established social and cultural values. This leads to patient trust and comfort and a respectful nurse-patient relationship.a 2-paragraph response (at least 250–350 words) to one of the options below.

HIT Usability and Design Challenges

Order Description

HIT Usability and Design Challenges

Reflect on your experiences with the integration of new technology. How have these implementations affected the procedures that you perform at work? As the end user, it can be easy to overlook all of the important decisions that went into the finished product that you see before you. In looking at the final data management screens, you may find yourself at the crossroads of two options. You may either 1) be ecstatic about the needed change that this system brought, or 2) frustrated because you feel the system brings new hurdles into your already busy day. If you have ever experienced the latter option, the comment “I could have implemented a better system than this” may resonate strongly with you. Though research agrees that user input assists HIT designers, the development and implementation of new systems is not as straightforward as it may appear. HIT development teams find themselves in constant phases of trial and error as they strive to meet the needs of all users within the proposed development timeline. Failure to achieve promised usability benefits can lead to increased costs and job complications. Applying effective strategies to overcome usability challenges is essential.

In this week’s Discussion, you move from the standpoint of the “ outsider looking in” (end user) and place yourself into a real-world implementation example. To complete this Discussion, you evaluate a case study to determine where the implementation process took a wrong turn. Use this week’s Learning Resources to propose changes that could have put this operation on the road to success.

To prepare:

Review the Learning Resources, focusing on the TIGER Usability and Clinical Application Design Collaborative.

Consider the “Best Practice Exemplars” provided in the course text Nursing Informatics: Where Technology and Caring Meet.

Review “Case Study 1: A Usability and Clinical Application Design Challenge” presented on page 238 of the course text Nursing Informatics: Where Technology and Caring Meet.

Determine the causes of the noted usability challenges (i.e., human factors, ergonomics, human-computer interaction), as well as potential usability concerns experienced by staff during implementation. Consider the possible design failures that lead to the usability challenges.

What strategies might you employ to overcome these HIT usability challenges and concerns?
By Day 3 post a cohesive response to the following:

Place yourself in the role of the clinical administrator tasked with implementing the case study’s new health information technology system.

Evaluate the usability challenges that you faced during implementation as well as the factors that caused these challenges.

Nursing Care of a Person with Angina
Mrs Brown (54 years) is brought to the emergency department by her husband following two episodes of chest pain lasting approximately 15 minutes each at work. She
reports she has had increasing frequency of angina in the last few weeks. She does however admit to not taking her medication as required as she believed she had
recovered from angina. Mrs Brown is admitted to hospital to the medical ward six hours later for further investigation. Her husband and family accompany her. She has
a history of hypertension her weight is 120kg and she currently has an executive management job. Observations on admission are temperature 37.2oC pulse 110b/min
respirations 24 respirations/min and BP 146/89mmHg. You are working as a new graduate registered nurse on this ward. When you introduce yourself to Mrs Brown she
tells you how stressed she is in her current job with numerous projects to develop and manage and tells you I have no time to exercise anymore and I?m so busy and so
tired my husband and I just end up eating take away a few times a week as I can?t be bothered cooking. Later that evening you answer Mrs Brown?s nurse call bell and
she tells you she has chest pain now. She states she just went for a walk around the ward and started to feel a bit short of breath. She rubs her sternum and left
upper arm. She states her pain score is 9 out of 10. When you ask her to describe her pain she states It feels like someone?s squeezing or pressing down on my chest
it feels really tight. She has an anxious look on her face is pale and you can see her face is a little sweaty.
.State an overview of the patients condition and identify TWO priority nursing problems. Give a brief plan for the essay topics.
For the first problem (800 words): Briefly explain how it relates to the patients assessment data. Identify TWO priority nursing interventions to address the
problem. Discuss briefly the nursing interventions you will implement (explain what is involved in implementing the intervention why it is suitable any relevant
positive or negative aspects/considerations) and support/justify the use of these interventions with reference to current evidence-based literature. Outline the
evaluation criteria/data that would indicate that each intervention is improving or resolving the identified problem.
For the second problem (800 words): Briefly explain how it relates to the patients assessment data. Identify TWO priority nursing interventions to address the
problem. Discuss briefly the nursing interventions you will implement (explain what is involved in implementing the intervention why it is suitable any relevant
positive or negative aspects/considerations) and support/justify the use of these interventions with reference to current evidence-based literature. Outline the
evaluation criteria/data that would indicate that each intervention is improving or resolving the identified problem.
Conclusion (100 words): Briefly restate the patients condition and problems and how the nursing interventions can benefit the patients health.
