Describe how this health issue should be addressed through a specific health education program

Final Project Component 1 Health educators may be involved in the analysis of a case study to demonstrate how they will implement strategies to address a health issue for a given population. Within a case study you will find extensive health information that may support the strategies which a health educator may recommend for this health issue. Or you may find that a different or alternative strategy not mentioned in the case study is supported by the health information provided. Thus as a future health educator your health literacy skills whereby you filter analyze and interpret healthrelated information will be important when reviewing a case study. Furthermore you may also find that health literacy skills are important when engaged in research and identification of potential sources to assist in your recommendations for health education practice. For this Assignment review the Point Mar Case Study provided in this weeks Learning Resources for the Final Project. Select a health issue from this case study to focus on for the Final Project and that you would like to address with a health education program. Reflect on this health issue and consider peerreviewed literature and databased resources (e.g. websites peerreviewed journals etc.) that can be used to research this specific health issue. Note: In grading this Assignment your Instructor uses the Final Project Components Rubric located in the Course Information area. Review the Rubric prior to completing your Assignment. The Assignment: (12 pages) Describe the health issue that you selected from the case study including an explanation of why this health issue is important for the health education profession. Describe how this health issue should be addressed through a specific health education program. Include a list of 35 peerreviewed literature resources that you are considering using as support for your Final Project. Identify databased resources or support for this health issue.

Explain the pathophysiology of the disorder depicted in the scenario including the associated alterations. Be sure to describe the patients adaptive responses to the alterations.

Adaptive Response
Order Description
consider this scenario: Jack is a 27-year-old male who presents with redness and irritation of his hands. He reports that he has never had a problem like this before but about 2 weeks ago he noticed that both his hands seemed to be really red and flaky. He denies any discomfort stating that sometimes they feel a little bit hot but otherwise they feel fine. He does not understand why they are so red. His wife told him that he might have an allergy and he should get some steroid cream. Jack has no known allergies and no significant medical history except for recurrent ear infections as a child. He denies any traumatic injury or known exposure to irritants. He is a maintenance engineer in a newspaper building and admits that he often works with abrasive solvents and chemicals. Normally he wears protective gloves but lately they seem to be in short supply so sometimes he does not use them. He has exposed his hands to some of these cleaning fluids but says that it never hurt and he always washed his hands when he was finished.
Explain the pathophysiology of the disorder depicted in the scenario including the associated alterations. Be sure to describe the patients adaptive responses to the alterations.
Construct a mind map of your selected disorder. Include the epidemiology pathophysiology risk factors clinical presentation and diagnosis of the disorder as well as any adaptive responses to alterations.

Discuss the scenario of either the drug shortage or organ shortage found in the article.

Ethics in the Healthcare Setting Paper instructions: The doctrine of double effect says that the pursuit of good is not as acceptable if the harm that results is intended rather than merely foreseen (Lippert-Rasmussen, 2010). To some it is a nonabsolutist moral principle in which as long as significant good resulted from the action, it is allowable (Lippert-Ramussen, 2010). Scanlon believed that an act that leads to the death of an innocent person can never be justified by the good that results (Lippert-Ramussen, 2010). Scanlon’s beliefs will be the focus of this assignment. Tasks: 1.Read the article by Lippert-Ramussen, “Scanlon on the Doctrine of Double Effect”. After reading the article, respond to the questions listed below. 2.Define the Doctrine of Double Effect. 3.Provide a brief summary of Scanlon’s view on the doctrine. 4.Discuss the scenario of either the drug shortage or organ shortage found in the article. •What is the scenario? •How does this demonstrate the Doctrine of Double Effect? •Do you agree with the action taken? If not, what could have been done? •What was Scanlon’s view on the scenario? Assignment Expectations 1.You will be expected to provide a scholarly basis for your response. *********2.Your opinions must be justified with evidence from the literature.***** 3.References should be cited properly in the text of your essay (either in parentheses or as footnotes), as well as at the end. *********.Please support your discussions with scholarly support (3-5 references). Be sure to properly cite all references.********** 5.Be sure to apply critical thinking skills to the assignment components stated above- especially #3. 6.The page length for this assignment should be between 2-3 pages (not counting your title page and references).

Explain how the factors you selected might impact decisions related to preventive services.

Cancer and Womens and Mens Health
Order Description
Application: Cancer and Womens and Mens Health
The American Cancer Society estimates that by the end of 2012 more than 226000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 241000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer (American Cancer Society 2012a; American Cancer Society 2012b). With such prevalence of womens and mens cancers patient education and preventive services are essential. In clinical settings advanced practice nurses must assist physicians in educating patients on risk factors preventive services and for patients diagnosed with cancer on potential drug treatments. The clinical implications of womens and mens cancer greatly depend on early detection which is primarily achieved through preventive services. In this Assignment you consider the short-term and long-term implications of cancer and drug treatments associated with womens and mens health as well as appropriate preventive services.

Determine the total variance between the planned and actual budgets for Patient Days. Is the variance favorable or unfavorable?

Budgeting
is an important activity within every healthcare organization. The particular
challenges encountered, however, can vary depending on the type of
organization. A state or federally funded organization, for example, will
likely have a budget that is allocated to it, and it needs to follow specific
guidelines on how the money can be used. A for-profit organization, by
contrast, will typically have more influence and flexibility in setting up
its budget and making choices on matters such as how much to spend on
marketing, patient care, or incentives for employees.

In
addition to preparing budgets, as a healthcare administrator, you must also
be able to evaluate whether or not you have achieved your budget using
variance analysis. This is important because variance analysis measures the
differences between the budget and actual results, and provides
administrators with a starting point for correcting financial performance.
For this Assignment, you conduct a variance analysis for a healthcare
organization.

To
prepare for this Assignment, review the Week 7 Assignment document provided
to you by the Instructor. Examine the budgeted and actual revenues and
expenses for a hospital. Reflect on concepts of budgeting and variance. Refer
to Chapter 10 and Chapter 11 of Financial Management
of Health Care Organizations: An Introduction to Fundamental Tools, Concepts
and Applications in this weeks Learning
Resources for additional guidance.
