Describe the program you selected. ◦Address why you selected the program.
Describe the cultural demographics of your community.
Explain the age breakdown of your community.
Describe how demographics and age affect your local health care market.
Identify the major health needs of the community.
Include a comparison of your community to the national health care market.
Identify the local wellness programs and their effect on health care costs.
Identify recommendations for how you might market to your local community.
Format your mailer according to APA guidelines.

health assessment presentation
Max Points: 150
In this assignment, you will be creating a PowerPoint presentation based on the application of the functional health assessment of a movie character. To complete this assignment, choose a movie from the following list and identify a character from the movie on whom you would like to do a health assessment. If you wish to use a character from a movie not included on the following list, get the approval of your instructor.
My Sister’s Keeper
The Elephant Man
The Tic Code
Create a PowerPoint presentation of 10-12 slides using the template “Movie Character Presentation.”
Provide an introduction and background overview of the movie character (client).
Assess the client using the “Functional Health Pattern Assessment.”
Based on your “observations” and thoughts, document your assessment, providing examples from the movie.
Describe any observed or potential cultural, geographic, religious, ethnic, or spiritual considerations of this client.
Describe two normal health patterns of the client as well as two abnormal health patterns that you observe, and provide examples.
Develop an appropriate nursing diagnosis for the client based on your assessment.
Identify and describe three interventions for the client: health promotion, health prevention, and maintenance.
Identify at least two possible resources or community services to which you would refer this client and provide rationale for your choices.
In addition to submitting the presentation to the instructor, post your assignment to the Movie Character Health Assessment Presentation Main Forum as directed by instructor. Respond to other learners’ posts in a manner that initiates or contributes to discussion. Each person should make at least three substantive comments.
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
keep the good paraphrase as usual.
This assignment requires you to reflect on your clinical experiences to identify a question to be searched which is of interest to you. You will need to explain how and why you developed your question. You will be required to identify 5 relevant studies and state how you found these through a detailed description of your search strategy. Finally you will be asked to reflect on this activity.
Develop a research question from ONE of these health themes:
– Mothers and babies
– Children and families
– Acute care settings
– Older people
– Mental health
– Rural and remote health
Use a database to identify 5 studies that address your question. The studies should not be systematic reviews or literature reviews.
You can use any database that you are familiar with but you may like to become familiar with PubMed as you will be able to continue to use this database once you graduate. See assignment 2 help for more information about using this data base.
Plan a search strategy to locate specific research articles related to your research question. A detailed description of your search strategy is needed
Discuss how your research strategy went. In this section you will be required to identify exactly how your search went, e.g. how many hits you got, how and why you refined your search and exactly how you identified relevant studies.
List the 5 research articles you found. Briefly state how together they are a good fit for your question
Reflect on this activity.
Background (1500 words)
– Identify which theme you have chosen.
– Explain why you are interested in this theme
– State your research question
– Describe the process of writing your question (what process did you use PICO, PIO, how did it work e.g. did you need to fine tune? When and why did you do this?)
– Discuss with reference to the literature why your research question is important to person centered care, nursing/midwifery practice, or evidence for practice.
Search strategy (500 words)
– Name the electronic database you used and briefly state why you used it.
– List the key words you used and how you used these (you may like to indicate how you used PICO and PIO to identify key words, how you limited your search terms, if you used truncation, abbreviations, wildcards and Boolean operators which ones you used and why )
– Explain in detail how you implemented your search strategy (it should be very clear in this explanation how you arrived at your 5 articles and how you chose these from the hundreds/thousands of hits that you may have had)
– List the 5 relevant research articles you found correctly annotating your list in Harvard style.
– Give a one or two sentence summary as to why these articles together are a good fit for your research question. You may refer back to PICO or PIO. (Note you do not need to summarize the article content)
Discussion (total of 800 words)
-Discuss how the process of writing a research question and identifying related evidence has broadened your understanding of evidence for nursing and midwifery practice.
A research critique demonstrates your ability to critically read an investigative study. For this assignment, choose a research article related to nursing to critique. Your critique should include the following:
State the problem clearly as it is presented in the report.
Have the investigators placed the study problem within the context of existing knowledge?
Will the study solve a problem relevant to nursing?
State the purpose of the research.
Review of the Literature
Identify the concepts explored in the literature review.
Were the references current? If not, what do you think the reasons are?
Are the theoretical concepts defined and related to the research?
Does the research draw solely on nursing theory or does it draw on theory from other disciplines?
Is a theoretical framework stated in this research piece?
If not, suggest one that might be suitable for the study.
What are the independent and dependent variables in this study?
Are the operational definitions of the variables given? If so, are they concrete and measurable?
Is the research question or the hypothesis stated? What is it?
What type of design (quantitative, qualitative, and type) was used in this study?
Was inductive or deductive reasoning used in this study?
State the sample size and study population, sampling method, and study setting.
Did the investigator choose a probability or non-probability sample?
State the type of reliability and the validity of the measurement tools.
Were ethical considerations addressed?
What data analysis tool was used?
How were the results presented in the study?
Identify at least one (1) finding.
Summary/Conclusions, Implications, and Recommendations
What are the strengths and limitations of the study?
In terms of the findings, can the researcher generalize to other populations? Explain.
Evaluate the findings and conclusions as to their significance for nursing.
The body of your paper should be 4–6 double-spaced pages plus a cover page and a reference page. The critique must be attached to the article and follow APA guidelines.
