A. Davis Company Publication Date January 30, 2018 Overview Discuss from your nursing experience an intervention you used with a family using each of the 4 types of approaches: Running head: PROMOTION 1 Health Promotion PROMOTION 2 Chronic illnesses affect over half of all adults in the United States. Current trends in population growth, age distribution, and disease dynamics predict increases in the occurrence of chronic diseases and chronic conditions (Posner, 2013). These illnesses affect health care costs and most importantly the overall well-being of Americans. The purpose of this paper is to choose a chronic illness and discuss interventions to promote the health and wellbeing of the patient and family. Current assessments indicate that diabetes mellitus affects more than one hundred and fifty million people worldwide. This number is expected to double by the year 2025. Health promotion and education is essential to reduce these findings. Clinical trials show that prolonged uncontrolled diabetes mellitus induces chronic complications (Intine & Sarras, 2012). Among these complications are diabetic retinopathy, which is the leading cause of blindness and visual loss, heart disease, chronic kidney disease, amputations, and diabetic neuropathy (World Health Organization, n.d.). As a healthcare professional, I care for many patients that have a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus. The reported prevalence of diabetes mellitus and its associated macrovascular complications are much higher in rural Appalachian Ohio compared to national averages (Schwartz, Ruhil, Denham, Shubrook, Simpson, & Boyd, 2009). In my years as a nurse, I have identified that many residents of my county are unaware of the risk factors related to diabetes mellitus. Health education and promotion is imperative to endorse positive lifestyle changes and chronic illness management. Demographic data shows that in the county I reside, approximately thirty three percent of the residents are obese, higher than the state average (Ohio Department of Health, 2008). The first intervention that I would focus on would be healthy lifestyle promotion and weight loss to PROMOTION 3 prevent diabetes mellitus. Encouragement of physical activity, walking, running, or working in the yard can be a lifestyle change for the client, as well as an activity that the whole family can participate in. Regular exercise is a key part of managing diabetes. It can help lower blood glucose in addition to many other benefits, such as increased energy and a decrease in stress and anxiety (American Diabetes Association, n.d.). Diet is equally important as exercise. The family can meal plan together to promote healthy diet choices. I would encourage cutting out added sugar drinks, and starting off with portion control, and low fat and carb diet for those clients who are diabetic. The second intervention for a client with diabetes mellitus would be the prevention of comorbidities. Adults with diabetes mellitus are four times more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease than those without diabetes mellitus (National Diabetes Education Program, 2013). I would educate the client on frequent doctors’ visits with routine lab work to assess hemoglobin A1C, cholesterol, frequent blood pressure monitoring, and overall health. I would also encourage the family to take part in wellness visits to monitor their health. I would encourage frequent eye exams as well to proactively assess visual function. These visits for the family can assist them in learning their odds for future health problems, and how to deal with current illnesses for the client. Lastly, for the client with diabetes mellitus self-management would be a tool that I would teach my patient. By promoting patient autonomy, the client can develop the skills and confidence needed to participate fully in their diabetes management. The family can also be involved in this teaching to assist as needed. This will empower the family and client to have control over their chronic condition. Teaching the client to manage their diabetes also endorses positive patient outcomes, if the education is received and practiced. Diabetes self-management PROMOTION 4 behaviors can include medication taking, monitoring blood glucose, diabetes self-care related problem solving, reducing risks of acute and chronic complications, and psychosocial aspects of living with diabetes. In conclusion, there is a growing number of individuals living with chronic conditions. The need for health-promotion interventions to prevent chronic diseases and promote quality of life for patients and their families is imperative. As family health care professionals it is vital that we educate and provide interventions for health promotion and wellness. 5 PROMOTION References American Diabetes Association. (n.d.). Fitness.
