QUESTION -TOPIC 5 DQ 2
Health teaching is one of the population-based interventions that can be implemented by public health nurses. Could you implement this intervention model for your chosen population? What would be the positive and negative aspects of utilizing this model?
CHOSEN POPULATION IS…..
Health teaching is an element of Population-based Intervention that helps the community acquire knowledge, skills and develop interest and positive attitudes to maintain healthy behaviors (Shahzad et al., 2019). These healthy behaviors involve personal hygiene, healthy eating behaviors, and awareness of diseases in the community (Doyle et al., 2018). Therefore, health teaching provides a secure platform for communities to understand the importance of maintaining good health and wellbeing among the Population and its impacts in the long run. This study discusses health teaching, the positive and negative effects of utilizing this model in my chosen Population.
Implementation of Health Teaching
I will probably implement this model among young girls and women in the community. I will use health teaching intervention to train and facilitate this population on the importance of maintaining personal hygiene to reduce the chances of having diseases such as urinary tract infections s and others, as they can lead to serious health complications. Even though it is an influential model, there are both advantages and disadvantages.
The model is easier to use and less costly. As a public nurse, I will have to study more on the topic to ensure I am familiar with the content for easier delivery, facilitation, and training. It is also manageable and effective because, through the model, the chosen Population can gain knowledge and skills, thus helping them change their mindset towards improving their health as a population. Its structured and organized manner enables the participants to understand the information provided and relate to it efficiently (Doyle et al., 2018).
The model can be a bit hectic to use due to some content that might be a bit comprehensive to the community, making them have second thoughts on whether to trust the information. It can take some time before the community decides to implement the Intervention and follow the guidelines, thus taking too much time to be effective and sustainable (Doyle et al., 2018).
