Diabetes adds to this stress because residents voiced that the out of control sugar levels made them more stressed. Individual emotional and physical choices play a crucial role in health and even more so in lower socio-economic neighborhoods. The biological level in terms of diabetes would be the genetic influence Cockerham (2013) addressed. The biological element at play is the TCF7L2 variant gene. This gene increases the diabetes risk but depends on heredity.
Specialized Courts Specialized courts are commonly known as the problem-solving courts that promote positive reinforcement, support behavior modification, decrease victimization, and reduce recidivism. Examples of specialized courts include drug court and mental health courts. A community might benefit from establishing a specialized court such as a drug court because it follows a comprehensive model that concentrates on reducing criminal actions through treatment and rehabilitation services with the focus being on substance abuse addiction and identifying the cause without jeopardizing public safety and due process (Specialized Courts, 2013). Another specialized court that a community might benefit from establishing is a mental health court. The aim of mental health courts is to connect people with mental illness, that display deviant behavior, to mental health resources and social services that can better deal with cases such as these as an option for individuals who need to be treated more than they need to be imprisoned (A Promising Alternative, 2011).
Lifestyle habits can enhance or impair health. This enables people to exert behavioral influence over their vitality and quality of health. Perceived self-efficacy affects every phase of personal change--whether people even consider changing their health habits; whether they enlist the motivation and perseverance needed to succeed should they choose to do so; and how well they maintain the habit changes they have achieved. The stronger the perceived self-regulatory efficacy the more successful people are in reducing health-impairing habits and adopting and integrating health-promoting habits into their regular lifestyle. Comprehensive community programs designed to prevent cardiovascular disease by altering risk-related habits reduce the rate of morbidity and
Instead we should be advocating patients to practice healthy lifestyle and aware of any potential health risks in daily life. Prevention of diseases is of most importance, preventing infections by practicing basic hygiene can lower the burden to the entire health care system and prevent unnecessary expense of patients. Practicing healthy lifestyle such as exercising at least 30 minutes everyday and controlling diets can help to lower the risk of having chronic illnesses in the late years, which can ease a large portion of public hospitals. Other than that, doctors should also aware of any social or mental difficulties of patients, which may be the underlying cause or hindering factors for patients to comply with treatment. If doctors observe patients have financial or social difficulties, they can advocate patients to seek help from medical social workers, this is beneficial to both patients and the whole health care
If such a destructive disorder is not dealt with, the person's health will be diminished regardless of how their health is improved in other areas by nursing interventions. Therefore, it is important that nurses can assist patients in dealing with depression so that health is improved holistically. There are many evidence-based interventions nurses can use to alleviate
Physiological issues is one of them and there are doctors for curing these problems. Being aware that these issues are associated with many factors including stress, there are studies performed. A research by researchers at the Duke University shows that the recent exposure to race-related stress can have a sustained impact on physiological stress responses for African Americans ( Duke University, 2008). Although the source is from 2008 it shows a reliable study on drastic growing race related stress in people. In addition to psychological issues associated with race, there was a research report on blood pressure, which showed various experiments and results.
Heath Education The health education progragmme should be focus on the population at risk. The prime objectives of health education is to provide information, make awareness and mobilize peoples to practice good health related aspects to keep them safe and sound. In resource poor community, where lacks proper sanitation and hygiene, health education can bring life style changes (Smits, 2009; Knopp et al., 2010; Bieri et al., 2013; Gyorkos et al., 2013; Al-Delaimy et al., 2014). The health education intervention should be cost effective and option should be best for the community, so that they must adopt and, this will help to retain the achievements obtained through preventive chemotherapy (Knopp et al., 2010; Bieri et al., 2013).The people
Cues to Action: These are signals that prompt one to take the initiative to treat illness. These can range from being exposed to health reports and messages in the mass media to watching a friend or relative suffer from the disease, reading a health pamphlet or even the onset of symptoms in one’s body. The model therefore says that an individual is more likely to seek treatment if he thinks he is prone to a disease that has severe consequences. For the individual to make the decision, though, his evaluation of whether the benefits of taking up treatment will outweigh the difficulties he will face in the process is crucial. In addition to the six factors that influence the making of a health care decision, various demographic factors like age, sex, race, social class, education, employment status, knowledge and experience play a role in how a person perceives the urgency of taking proper action to deal with his health condition.
The authors emphasize that a diabetes patient must know how to recognize the complications that usually arise from the disease and how to respond to those problems adequately and efficiently. Accordingly, the discussion articulates a model of education, the therapeutic patient education (TPE) as an increasingly fundamental approach adopted not only in the management but also the prevention of diabetes. The researchers emphasize that various trials vindicate the suitability of the model by registering improvements in lifestyle, clinical, and psychosocial effects. Nonetheless, the authors highlight the lack of clarity in the ideal attributes of a comprehensive education program and insist on the need for further research to determine the perfect application of the education model. Hence, this article's relevance is providing context by explaining the place of education in the diabetes management spectrum and proposes a suitable model for the implementation of education programs.
Introduction It is very important for Health programs to reach out and be able to help all sorts of different kinds of people, which are being affected by an illness or disease. Programs that know about individuals and their culture will benefit greatly, when knowing the background of their culture and why they may struggle with such problems in their health. I found two programs that are working for the people, the programs had to be beneficial with the certain cultures of people they are trying to reach out to. For one of the programs I decided to talk about was the, Black Women’s Health Impetrative and its interactions to help inform African American women the signs of Cardiovascular disease. The second Program is the, PMC Chronic Obstructive
Gates and Kevin M. Walker talked about the effects of physiological changes on treatment of diabetes in older adults. Decreased renal function and increased sensitivity to medication were discussed as challenges in medication therapy. Therefore the authors suggested medication dosages be adjusted based on individual health patterns and not just based on age alone. The article pointed out the importance of less aggressive, low coast and more individualized goal setting treatment plans towards older adults with diabetes. Health promotion
It was introduced after the sudden death and highly increase of diabetics in 2008. The objective for this program is to evaluate the success of this project in prevention of diabetic cases in Rio Grande Valley region. This assessment will also evaluate the intervening variables that confines the scope of program even after sufficient funding from the Health Care Department. Program evaluation and performance metrics for the healthcare emergency awareness segment work together to agree with the strengths and flaws of the program to be evaluated, taking into deliberation for goals of programs, impact of execution, and long-term sustainability. The mission is to prevent of diabetes and its implications through awareness programs, educational system, and early detection through free health
It is favorable influence behavior of the unique, families, and communities. This objective might solve health problems in the community. It might make nursing students provides adequate advice and information about food, fat, cigarette smoking, alcohol, and regular exercise. This course objective might make behavior change and community change. Also, it can prevent disease or infections.
