1.2 THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK. To clarify our understanding of this research, the researcher has chosen to relate it to Gordon Marjory functional pattern to provide a more comprehensive nursing assessment of the patient. GORDON MARJORY FUNCTIONAL HEALTH PATTERN MODEL 1994. Marjory observed that functional health pattern evolved from client- environment interactions. Each pattern is an expression of biopsychosocial integration which can be influenced by biological, developmental, cultural, social and religious factors.
The application of theoretic knowledge has to be well structured during nursing care. According to the self-care deficit theory of nursing, attaining the individual therapeutic self-care demand and maintaining the patient self-care agencies are the required result. (Smith 2012). 3.1 Assumption and assertion of the theory The assumption relating to this theory were devised in the early 1970s.

Care Plans and Person-centred Health Delivery This essay examines what is a care plan, the different types care plan and an analysis of the advantages and the challenges of a care plan in a nursing home setting. I will conclude my analysis by suggesting how to improve the care plan to make it more efficient in a health setting. What is a Care Plan? A care plan helps to assess the type of care needed and how it will be provided. It shows not only the physical aspect of a resident but as well psychological, social aspects, economics and life- style factors (ANA 2015).
Health is determined by several factors, some of these including genetic inheritance, personal behaviors, access to quality healthcare, and our general external environment. In a growing variety of research, we have documented associations between social and cultural factors and health. Many Anthropologist measure these factors using two forms of analysis. Biocultural and cross-cultural. The biocultural approach: defined as, “Perspective that considers the social, ecological, and biological aspects of health and how they interact within and across populations” (Wiley & Allen p. 9).

(National Health Strategic Plan 2006-10), (National Health Strategic Plan 2011-14) c) Explain how the four approaches of Public health could be used to attain the objectives outlined in b). Public health is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life, and promoting health through organized efforts of society - The Acheson Report (1988) Therefore, the public health approach principles provide a useful framework for investigating and understanding the causes and effects of Health related conditions and for planning there mitigation interventions through primary prevention programmes, policy interventions and advocacy.

In the nursing profession there are numerous models of nursing care. Orem (2001) bases her care model on promoting and encouraging self-care and Roper-Logan-Tierney (2000) developed their model on the 12 basic activities of living.

This essay explores the relationship of socioeconomic impacts on health in Islington Borough and accumulate data about disparities in the provision of health and social care services. I will also examine government methods in the promotion of health and factors and how barriers affect these health promotion campaigns. Health promotion is the procedure of empowering individuals to build control over, and to enhance, their Health. It moves past an emphasis on individual conduct towards an extensive variety of social and environmental interventions. The Ottawa Charter (1986) defines health promotion as the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve their health to reach a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing
Dr. Song, Clinical Decision Support has been defined as a “process for enhancing health-related decisions and actions with pertinent, organized clinical knowledge and patient information to improve healthcare, as well as, healthcare delivery (Campbell & CPHIMS, 2013). Clinical Decision-supporting tools are utilized to manage and support patient care. Healthcare information systems and information-retrieval systems are tools that manage information. There are various programs that provide custom tailored assessments or advice based on sets of patient specific data (Musen, Middleton, & Greenes, 2014, p. 701). Decision tools may follow simple logics (such as algorithms), may be based on decision theory, cost benefit analysis, or may use numerical approaches only as an adjunct to symbolic problem solving (Musen, Middleton, & Greenes, 2014, p. 701).
By implementing CQI, I will form a team that can help me to identify problems and challenges towards achieving effective and result oriented healthcare. This quality improvement team will be responsible for implementing, documenting, monitoring and evaluating the improvement plan. Responsibilities are then assigned to the members of this team. Then I will delineate scope of care and service, and one method of doing this is to identify the organizations key governance, managerial, clinical, and support functions. All departments and services should be made to contribute to this delineation of key functions.
I have chosen two roles that are integral to the Health Care Industry. The first being Health Educator and the second being Medical Coder. The following discussion will be looking at what a day in The life of each of these roles may look like. Health Educator Health Educator roles are various and diverse depending on what setting they are utilized in.

It is the duty of the manager to ensure targets are set and obtained. Managers can make an impact on the policy by researching and coming up with solutions that best fit the needs of the practice or facility. On the other hand, the systems can also give health care managers direction as to what training may be necessary, as well as what changes will be essential to the growth of the practice. Having health policies helps to define a vision for the future which in turn contributes to establishing targets and points of reference for the short and medium term they also help outline management priorities and the expected roles of different groups while building consensus and informs people (WHO, 2016). Without health policies just like regulations and laws, health care would lack structure, therefore, putting patient’s safety at risk this is why it makes such a huge impact on managers.
