Policies, programs and other organized initiatives regarding health promotion have to be empowering, participatory and holistic. The programs regarding health prevention enables communities and individual to control their environmental, socioeconomic and personal factors that keeps their impact in their health (Pender, Murdaugh & Parsons, 2011). Health promotion fosters spiritual, physical and mental health.
Nursing diagnosis relates to health seeking and self care activities. Those activities include
accepting the responsibility of self-care, identification of progress and the elimination of the negative health care practice, initiating the program needed for stress reduction, being active for seeking knowledge regarding disease process or medical treatment (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2000).
Readiness for Learning
Readiness for learning is very much important. Nurses have to connect with the patients emotionally and practically for understanding their problem. Learning with other professionals and students will make the learners more efficient member of social care or health care team. Group learning will help the learners to understand the limitations of the profession. Discussion of the problems within a social-care team will be fruitful.
Learning Theory to Be Utilized
The salutogenic theory may be utilized for the program regarding health promotion. The theory is designed for enhancing the health promoting program. It focuses on the health of the person not the disease of the person. Before the application of the theory, the theory must be understood by the students very clearly.
The goals of the health care promotion according to HP 2020 are—
Increase the number of persons having medical insurance.
Increase the number of persons having dental insurance.
Increase the number of persons connected to a primary care provider.
Increase the number of practicing medical employees and so on.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
