Name:

Date:

You are a staff nurse at the county health department,
providing care to low-income and uninsured individuals. You are caring for Mrs.
S., a 57 year old woman with a new
diagnosis of hypertension. She is 5 3, weighs 235 lbs., and smokes – 1 pack
of cigarettes per day. She has a 10th grade education. Her first
language is English. Her other diagnoses include insulin-dependent type II
diabetes and depression. Her family consists of her husband, 24 year old
daughter, and 26 year old son. They are all morbidly obese and are smokers
themselves. All are very devoted to her and want to help her get healthy in
whatever way they can.
Type your answers in the boxes below the box will expand
as you type.
What are three questions that you might ask of her and the
family to determine how best to proceed with her care? Consider things such as
patient preference and readiness to learn.

Mrs. S. tells you that she is not ready to quit smoking yet.
She would like to eat healthier, but thinks that healthy food has no flavor.
She is interested in learning about how to start exercising.
What are your personal thoughts and beliefs related to the
statement above? Remember examining our own beliefs and values is very
important in critical thinking and providing nursing care.

Now that youve examined your beliefs what type of
education might you provide to her that takes into account her preferences, values,
and readiness to learn? List at least three different education activities.

What types of resources might you refer her to for further
support/information? (Hint: The American Heart Association, American Diabetes
Association, and Centers for Disease control [to name a few] have great patient
resources that you can use).
