Discussion 5: Using the health belief model
Using the health belief model, nurses can encourage patients to make immediate and permanent behavior changes particularly to life style changes by assessing the patients readiness to learn, make changes, resources available to help patients achieve goals, set goals, and evaluate plan. In our family practice office we make several assessments related to cancer screens and other health assessments. it usually starts with lab work. once the levels come back and teaching is complete about what an abnormal level is the patient, doctor and nurse develop a plan of how to proceed. For example, if a patient has a high glucose level the nurse determines if the patient knows what a “glucose” level is. from there the nurse assesses how the patient learns ie. demonstrations, brochures, group teaching like in diabetic education ect. in addition to glucose checks follow up is make approx every two weeks to evaluate the patients compliance, and understanding. If the patient is unable to check his/her glucose at home because he/she doesn’t know how to use a glucometer, adjustments are made and teaching is performed. compliance and evaluation to make changes is necessary and will assist in accomplishing a positive outcome.
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
