World Health Organization defines nursing as: “Nursing encompasses autonomous and collaborative care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and communities, sick or well and in all settings. It includes the promotion of health, the prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disabled and dying people” (WHO, 2018). This means that nurses care for both those who are sick and unable to care for themselves, healthy people, and the dead. One of the duties of the nurse is to educate the patient and public. As such nurses also go into the communities to create awareness on recent developments and how to manage our environment to prevent the inhabitants from becoming sick.

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).

In health education for example, some of the main players - as regards health systems components- are mainly the human resources for health ( nurses educating pregnant mothers on breastfeeding and health facility delivery), service delivery ( health education sessions offered to groups in a specialised clinic) and pharmaceutical and technology used to treat an infected patient. Health promotion, however, goes beyond boundaries of the health facility and/or health systems and into the community; infrastructure improved to allow supply of clean water to prevent cholera and other water-borne diseases, media announcements for mass screening campaigns against e.g. cervical cancer, policies and laws formulated to govern road safety, police officers tasked with ensuring motor vehicle safety, and many more. Regardless of the varied scope of the health education and promotion, theories of socio-cognitive behaviour change can still be used at all levels of health interventions (7, 8). Both health education and health promotion are swallowed up in the term health promotion and both are considered during health
In order to be trained the midwives must go through lectures and clinical skill labs where they are prepared to act accordingly to the situation. (Rivers, 2015) Besides working in hospitals and clinics, the midwives can also work as community midwives. While working as community midwives, they can introduce the idea of homebirth, and encourage more women to consider it. As there are now cultural varieties among the communities, some people might not be aware of homebirth, or regard it as dangerous. Therefore, the community midwife should supply the pregnant women with appropriate information.

The importance of good communication was highlighted and evidence of the author working in partnership with Joan’s niece and son was provided.

She has very strong family values and spiritual guidance from her traditions. It is recommended that she find a home health provider or companion care resource that helps her with household tasks, transportation to doctor’s appointments, grocery stores, and church activities. Have a visiting nurse check in once a week to check how she is doing.
