Written Assignment Unit 1 The case study of Fatima, who is a 30 year old single mother of 2 young children and works 50 hours a week in order to support and care for her family, demonstrates several psychological constructs including social norms, habits, delayed help seeking, quality of life and health outcomes. Although Fatima does not smoke, her choice of eating processed foods instead of fresh fruits and vegetables because of food costs, and avoiding seeing a doctor when she suffered from occasional chest pain and fatigue, have progressed to her diagnosis with hypertension at the hospital after she fainted one day. This paper will discuss health psychology and the biomedical model. It will also discuss the four main theoretical frameworks

Participants were 100 elderly successively admitted to a nursing home, within 1 week of admission and after 6 months. Data were gathered from medical and nursing records (medical and psychiatric history, ADL), interviews (MMSE, details for admission) and self-report instruments (GDS, BSI, WHOQOL-brief). Results exhibited that just 5.9% (n = 4) had relocated to the nursing home by their own will, 26.5% (n = 18) because they were isolated and 36.7% (n = 25) because they had no accessible caregiver. Twenty-six participants had an MMSE score >or= 18 and allowed to undertake complete evaluation.

Rehabilitation nurses, whether novice or expert, search for and use current evidence, and supportive technology to deliver optimal client and family-centered care (Stephanie, Kristen, Cynthia, Pamala, Jill, Wendy, Christine, David, 2015, p.35). According to the association of rehabilitation nurses, “the role of the nurse is to assist clients in adapting to an altered lifestyle while providing a therapeutic environment for client’s and their family’s development”. Rehabilitation nurses identify client and caregiver health and wellness needs, including facilitators and barriers to health improvement, and integrate community care services that manage chronic disease and support healthier time (Smeltzer, 2010)”. Health promotion through primary prevention, as well as preventing complications for those with existing disabilities is essential to the role of the rehabilitation nurse (ARN, 2014a,b). The rehabilitation staff nurse designs and implement treatment strategies that are based on scientific nursing theory related to self-care and promote physical, psychosocial, and spiritual health (ARN, 2014).
For many students, homework is a chore--mandatory, useless, painful. In addition to already-long school days, many more hours are spent by students at home, working on numerous, often unimportant, assignments.

Due to its length, inaccurate representation of student knowledge, insignificant impact on academics, elimination of free time, and damage on the physical and mental health of students, homework does not benefit students.
The great effect of being over fatigue is the decrease in the grades of students. It is very hard for them to concentrate on lectures in the morning when they have used up all their energy at night making school works. As stated in an article by Carpenter (2001): “You can be giving the most stimulating, interesting lectures to sleep deprived kids early in the morning or right after lunch, when they’re at their sleepiest, and the overwhelming drive to sleep replaces any chance of alertness, cognition, memory or understanding”. For sleep deprived individuals, being able to sleep just for a few minutes is a big opportunity to regain back all the lost times to

She explains that she spent almost every second day in the hospital, whether it was caused by kidney stones, an illness, or giving birth, as this was the span of years where she had all of her four daughters. Her husband was working longer days as well, which meant she had more responsibilities on the farm and with the kids at home. It felt like she was burning the candle at both ends with all of the daily stress and tasks. In terms of her life satisfaction, she rates it a seven on a scale of one to ten.
