A Guide to Effective Communication Strategy on Health According to Ratzan (2001), communication is not the mere message repetition. It should include the development of an environment for community involvement to espouse common values of human kind. People should already prepare themselves as communication strikes to advance health and health care delivery today. In formulating a communication strategy, it must always begin with the analysis of the situation to be followed by the communication strategy itself. To achieve an effective communication campaign to any health program, one must make sure first of health literacy.
Promotion of female education and literacy is described in several studies as one of the most effective measure to reduce maternal and neonatal mortality (Mekonnen & Mekonnen 2003; Addai 1998; Ikeako et al. 2006). Furthermore, community effects of education have shown to possibly initiate self-organization and involvement of communities in shaping adequate health services (Grosse & Auffrey 1989; Levine & Rowe 2009). As literature shows, limited availability of transportation options play a crucial role in whether or not a facility can be reached in time (Doctor et al. 2012; Parkhurst et al.
Movies are not just the source for an entertainment they are also helpful for knowledge and research. There are many movies where they portrayed the real life scenario into the reel life, which is very informative to the human society. The movie “Contagion” is a medical thriller directed by famous director Steven Soderbergh. The movie is based on the active breakthrough of a destructive airborne virus which is known as Meningoencephalitis Virus One (MEV-1), as the spread of the disease grows rapidly the medical research group and the government finds ways to cure and rule out the deadly outbreak by removing horror in the society and ultimately developing a vaccine to stop the spread. The movie is encouraged from a real life event of a deadly
This policy will, in fact, be successful in deterring drug use among teens as the fear of punishment, such as suspension or expulsion, causes students to avoid even making the choices to try and therefore become addicted to illegal drugs. The Institute of Education Sciences (Department of Education) performed a multiple year study of 36 high schools in the southern United States that use random drug testing and compared it to control schools not using the policies to compare the effectiveness. In this study, they found that sixteen percent of students in the schools with drug tests used, whereas twenty two percent of students in the control schools used these same drugs being tested (“NCEE”). Assuming this six percent drop could transfer across all other regions, this one policy could prevent thousands upon thousands of kids from using narcotics. The study found that the measures had both short and long term ability to drop the usage rate consistently, therefore it can be part of a long term solution to help minimize drug use in the United States.
Nurse need to know about health promotion because they need to know what advice is good to give the patient, such as having an interaction with a patient that has diabetes and advising them of the importance of testing their blood sugars and how to control their diabetic diet. Children with learning disabilities have higher levels of health needs than the general population (Gurney et al, 2006; Nocon 2006), and this high level of need extends into adulthood (Barr et al.
I read an article called “In L.A., policy shift yield decline in school suspensions” by Christine Armario. Schools in L.A. are talking to kids in order that they won 't have to kick them out. Some of these kids have gang problems. When kids are talking to one another, they learn how to communicate with each other instead of fighting. Kids should learn to talk to each rather than get kicked out because they will learn more.
Health Belief Model The Health Belief Model is one of the most widely used models to explain the preventive health behaviour. Health Belief Model (HBM) was initially developed in the early 1950’s by a group of social psycologists, to create awareness among masses regarding preventive measures about fatal diseases. It was the first conceptual model of behaviour developed with a concern for public health issues. This was an effort to provide a framework for analysing why some people who were illness free take actions to avoid illness, whereas others failed to take such protective action. The model explains the factors that motivate individuals to engage in behaviour for a healthy living.
Policy-makers can cooperate with a range of organizations, health practitioners, and government departments at all levels in order to develop health policy that seeks to reduce health inequalities effectively before they can manifest themselves in poor health outcomes. The medical model – while it will always be around, and while it arguably should always be around – is somewhat of a quick-fix, short-term approach to a very serious and pervasive public health issue. The social-ecological model, though, is a much more forward thinking, long-term, and sustainable approach to dealing with this public health issue. It looks to the root causes of the issue – all of the social and economic determinants of health discussed in part 1 – and attempts to solve the problem at that level. This approach is far more useful for reducing health inequalities.
Children are not taught to stretch their thinking and to be receptive of opposing views. In the current society of “protected feelings”, children are being taught that negative opinions are bad, and this type of thinking does not allow them to flourish intellectually.(p. 7) Sadly, children are not learning about what the First Amendment means, and as a result, college students are protesting against speakers which have different viewpoints from their own. In addition, Stephens contends that college students are not capable of thinking for themselves because they tend to identify with a particular group and own that groups views. (p. 8) He strongly argues that “to disagree well you must first understand well.” (Stephens p.5) Secondly, Stephens acknowledges that the influential media is another contributor to the downfall of healthy debate.
They provide talking points, such as “sexual abstinence until marriage provides numerous health benefits,” and that abstinence programs deter other high risk activities of teens like smoking and drug abuse. The authors also talk about how schools teach risk avoidance when it comes to many other subjects, such as drug use, bullying, or even nutrition. The comparison is that schools do not tell students about different types of alcohol, they teach students to avoid alcohol. The Focus on the Family group feels that sex education should also be about risk avoidance, instead of risk reduction. They even go as far as saying that risk reduction sex education is “taught at a lower standard than all other health topics.” They include a link to a National Abstinence Education Association study that shows how Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) improves teens.
("Medicare", 2015). The third payment plan varies and is dependent on the plan that they are using. Because the medical industry works to become more and more accurate in all medical terms, it is necessary for patients being just as accurate when applying (2015). This way, clients will get just the health plan they need. Another prominent health plan is Medicaid.
By banning this book in schools, rebellious teens would want to know what the book contains and will try to find a way to read it. Also, by banning this book, students may never know what life was like for slaves or what life was like for whites during slavery. The lessons learned in this book are helpful and can guide children to achieve goals. Do not ban books that will give children the sight, speech, and
How can students think that taking prescription drugs used to treat ADHD is fine to do if you do not have a prescription? How is illegally taking prescription drugs “safe” to do? Some students think this, and this essay will explain the dangers of doing this, and what can be done about this issue. Our society has an issue. There are students taking Adderall, a drug that is commonly used to treat ADHD, and they think there is no problem if they take it without having a prescription for it.
First the goal for drug testing is to hopefully deterrent students to use drugs under peer pressure(NIDA). According to the National Institutes On Drug Abuse, they stated that “Drug testing should never be undertaken as a stand-alone response to a drug problem. If testing is done, it should be a component of broader prevention, intervention, and treatment programs, with the common goal of reducing students ' drug use”(NIDA). Now if students that are tested positive for drug use are not punished but are helped on their addictions to drugs(NIDA). Drug testing is very effective many studies in the past has shown that students reported using drugs had use it less and less, and they also found out that students who did use drugs for sports have a good accurate chance they will use it in their future lives in a sport career.
