Benchmark Information

This benchmark assesses the following programmatic competency:

MSN Public Health Nursing

6.1 Evaluate theoretical frameworks in public health nursing useful for assessing the health status of populations and promoting health and preventing disease for individuals, communities, and populations. PHN-652 — Population-Based Interventions.

 

Topic 1 DQ 1

 

Discuss the sources of evidence for public health nurses. How can this evidence be applied to support evidence-based practice? Cite at least two sources of evidence in your response.

Re: Topic 1 DQ 1

There are many different sources for public health nurses to utilize from, and the first would be the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website. I personally like this website to pull information regarding current health, social, and any other topic an individual would like knowledge of. For a public health nurse, the information that is placed in this source is vital because it provides a comprehensive look at different healthcare, biological, and social specialties and presents information in a method that is comprehensive and easy to understand. Many studies that are being completed by government or public health programs are found on the CDC. Many healthcare issues that are being tracked by private offices are submitted to the CDC for overall, comprehensive review. This is why I think the CDC websites is a great resource for both public health nurses and any other individual who is seeking to further their knowledge base. PHN-652 — Population-Based Interventions.

The second source of information that public health nurses may utilize are scholarly databases such as the one that is provided by Grand Canyon University. Scholarly databases allow for public health nurses to specify studies down to whether or not they are peer reviewed, scholarly based, time frame, etc. Any other database source such as EBSCOhost would also provide information that has been deemed to be peer reviewed or scholarly.

It is so important that public health nurses use reviewed, credible sources for their studies because it oftentimes serves as a foundation for any other research that follows. It can unintentionally skew results in one way or another when foundational information is later to found to not be as credible or true as it was previously deemed.

Topic 1 DQ 2

 

How has evidence-based practice evolved? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this evolution for public health nurses as well as communities?

Topic 1 DQ 2

The provision of quality care aims at ensuring that safety is a priority in nursing care. However, this is a matter that has often been overlooked in nursing school, a notion that has seen nurses lack adequate preparation on how to offer safe care to patients. The resulting improvement to shape the nursing curriculum was the introduction of evidence-based practice (EBP) to make sure that nurses are proficient in both the clinical experience and patient-oriented care by meeting the laid provision for the best care in line with emerging clinical researches PHN-652 — Population-Based Interventions. Since the beginning of EBP, it has since shaped the nursing profession, it has promoted skills, competence, and equipped nurses with the relevant knowledge required to provide quality and safe care by nurses (LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2017)

As stated above, EBP had several advantages including equipping the health care nurses with skills and knowledge which has played an important role in their profession and interaction with the community. It has given nurses a platform in which they can make reverence and address a range of challenges as a result of promoting competence. The evolution of EBP has, however, come along with a lot of challenges. At times, it is very difficult to find valid and credible evidence. This consumes a lot of time and sometimes the public health officers are misguided by some sources, hence ending up doing what is contrary to the expectations of the community ( LoBiondo-Wood & Haber, 2017). EBP has also lead to oversight of common sense. EBP has made some public health workers lazy, that they rely so much on evidence from other sources rather than using their minds to reason and execute the mandate.

Topic 2 DQ 1

 

Why are public health models important in providing quality health care? Briefly describe two public health models and their impact on quality health care.

Re: Topic 2 DQ 1

In different facilities, several healthcare models and theories are used to enhance the practices of the health workers to ensure that quality care of the patients is realized. One common model is the Social Cognitive Theory     (SCT). This model focuses on engaging how one’s influences affects other people’s action and it revolves around the behavior of the individual (Stanhope et. al., 2019). However, it is mainly meant to guide healthcare workers. This model tends to promote self-efficacy in that one will be able to control their behavior and it includes having self-control when it comes to monitoring their behavior. A good example is the Healthy Relationship program that is instilled by Chattanooga CARES, which is operated by a small group of individuals who are living with AIDS, and it mainly focuses on skill-building. Another model is the Health Belief Model that offers guidelines on how to promote different preventive programs. To measure the development of the healthcare system, the facility will be able to engage more in prevention than treatment programs. According to the saying, prevention is better than cure, and this must be a concept that applies to healthcare facilities (Jackson, & Gracia, 2014). According to this model, the main area to define includes the threats of the disease, consequences, actions to be taken, barriers to the action taken, and the chances to succeed. For instance, the Michigan Model for Health is a program that is designed to be implemented in the learning institution. It focuses on social health problems.
