In this assignment students are required to:
Choose one diverse population of your choice based on the populations outlined in the course content, that is: children, older person, men, women, minority groups, culturally and linguistically diverse persons, those with a physical or mental disability.
Then present a report discussing the key areas to follow. You will also propose a nursing plan that seeks to address one of the health outcomes you have discovered for this group.
In your report you MAY decide to further focus on a sub group of the original population you examined in the E-Poster. For example you may have examined the population group of High school aged children in Rural areas. Your report MAY like to further focus on Male High school aged children in Rural areas. It is up to you.
Within your assignment you need to begin with:
• WHY your chosen population is considered diverse and include:
o Social determinants of health and how they impact this population;
CRICOS Provider No. 00103D RTO Code 4909
o Health inequalities (the differences in health status between population groups) such as differences in wellbeing, risk of disease, abuse/violence, healthy life expectancy, morbidity and mortality;
o Health inequities (differences in health status between population groups that are socially produced, systematic in their unequal distribution across the population, avoidable and unfair) such as difference in access, affordability, income etc;
o Health outcomes – Discuss key health issues impacting this population ie certain disease, mental health issues, injuries etc
• Discuss the nursing care considerations that would be important in caring for an individual of this population. Your discussion should highlight and link to three Registered Nurse Standards such as:
o Standard 2: Engaging in a therapeutic and professional relationship How to communicate effectively, and how to be respectful of your
chosen population’s dignity, culture, values, beliefs and rights.
How to provide support and direct your chosen population to resources
to optimise their health-related decisions
