Wk 5 Discussion
Research community resources available for children with cardiovascular disorders and infectious diseases.
There are three community resources available for children with cardiovascular and infectious diseases with a focus on keeping them safe, healthy and happy. The first resource is education and outreach programs. These programs can be moderated by medical experts. In addition, the programs include coaching clinics that educate the caregivers on the best approaches and how to handle emergencies. Besides that, the programs include outreach clinics that provide funded medical services, education, and health promotion material (Burns et al., 2017). The second resource is health care networks that seamlessly interconnect data sources, devices, and sites to streamline health care delivery. The collected data and developed knowledge are regularly acted upon to anticipate and prevent medical emergencies. The networks also include a trusted community of pediatric acute care, wellness, and health resources that are comprised of pediatric specialists, pediatricians, and subspecialists, as well as facility providers and other individuals who are involved in providing high-quality health care services and expanding the pediatric care delivery model. The third resource is school-based programs and partnerships. From prevention and wellness to disease management, these programs ensure that children in school have optimal health care outcomes. They are designed to improve health literacy while reducing the amount of time the children are out of school because of illness, and therefore they focus on increasing the amount of time the children spend learning (McDonald & Jakubec, 2021).
Describe a resource that can be used in clinical to help a child patient or to educate the patient’s family about a cardiovascular disorder or an infectious disease.
One resource that can be used in clinics to help a child patient with cardiovascular disorders and/or infectious diseases is the health care networks. These networks serve two main functions. Firstly, they leverage communication technologies to seamlessly interconnect data sources, devices, and sites to ensure that the child is always monitored and health care delivery is streamlined. This ensures that medical emergencies can be anticipated and prevented. Secondly, they create a trusted community of medical personnel who deliver the required medical care (McDonald & Jakubec, 2021).
