As the teenagers enter the room, pupils are arbitrarily decided to finish a questionnaire to identify exactly what dangerous behaviors they may be associated with. The questionnaire is random and is likewise evaluating for an understanding of the HIV ailment procedure and views related to the disease (Hamilton, 2011).
In the spectrum of healthcare system services, the nursing care that this intervention program will offer this populace would be primary prevention. Upon admission, clients are asked if they have actually ever before been checked for HIV and when. Clients are likewise examined for any behaviors that put them at threat for contracting HIV. Registered nurses will address any questions their client could have and then the client will be seen by the MD. If clients wish to be checked for HIV, the infection control registered nurse will then come and offer HIV awareness (Hamilton, 2011).
The facets of community health nursing that I am making use of in my nursing practice for this populace is education. I am promoting healthy behaviors such as great hygiene, correct nourishment, and ways to avoid this ailment. With reference to the general public health nursing intervention wheel, I would explain my practice as "recommendation and follow-up." I think this holds true since typically clients only spend a brief time inpatient and then they are released to follow up for other medical concerns, future outpatient therapy, etc. (Hamilton, 2011).
Looking to the future of HIV, avoidance is the secret to preserving healthy neighborhoods. HIV education need to begin young and the focus ought to be on those populaces who are specifically at danger. A moving of HIV care into the primary-care setting must produce enhanced results for clients, specifically pregnant ladies. There should be more community outreach and discussion on the conditions and support for others with HIV. I feel a higher sense of duty, not simply on how I look after my clients, but exactly what I contribute to my community. As a community, exactly what influences one person influences us all (Hamilton, 2011).
Planning, Handling, and Examination of Programs
When preparing a program to satisfy the demands of a community a health division supervisor needs to take a number of elements into account. Initially, the healthcare requirements of the community and the effect of these demands on the community need to be understood. Questions that need to be responded to consist of whether the community will support the health program, and whether financing, for instance federal and state grants allocated for programs to assist with the health requirement in the community, are readily available. Making sure financial backing for the program is important: securing the financing can be completed with grants, sponsors, or contributions (Maurer and Smith, 2009).
Handling and examining an intervention program is a recurring job for a health division supervisor (Maurer & Smith, 2009). The outcomes of the intervention program needs to be gauged to guarantee that the program works. Analysis of a program for effectiveness and efficiency offers information to gauge the sustainability of the program. Gathering proof on the success of the prevention program, for instance by asking the participants to fill out questionnaire surveys related to the program comparing prophylactic use prior to and after involvement in the program, can offer program sponsors with data required to validate their ongoing support as well as could amass extra financing sources (Maurer & Smith, 2009).
