Partnering with local hospitals and urgent care centers to connect with clients that recently suffered from exacerbations would be another area that I would immerse our attentions. Finally, home visits would be the most important factor toward a successful outcome to obtain the metrics of effectiveness educational interventions at schools and churches, also encouragement to continue proper asthma management for children. The Asthma Action Team program’s success was demonstrated 2007, the rate of pediatric ED visits was 855 per 1,000 children. In 2012, that number had dropped to 267 per 1,000 (Figley, 2014, p.1). This evidence based research motivates my initiative to see even greater success with the increase of
The purpose of epidemiology is to aid in establishing preventative programs and to control the development and spread when trends are identified in populations (Miller-Keane, 2003, para. 4). In the United States, the health issues surrounding childhood poverty have been identified as a nation problem by the public health system and are under epidemiologic study on the national, regional, and local levels. To be able to develop effective programs to combat the obesity epidemic among children living in poverty in the United States, descriptive epidemiology, the first stage of epidemiologic study, is being done. Descriptive epidemiology is examining the occurrence of health-related problems surrounding childhood poverty.
Another program is School Nurse Childhood Obesity Prevention Education (SCOPE). This program is a complete, continuing education program created by the National Association of School Nurses to provide methods for school nurses to help students, parents and their community deal with the challenges of childhood obesity (NASN). The U.S. Surgeon General’s “Call to Action to Prevent and Decrease Overweight and Obesity” provides steps to prevent and decrease childhood obesity. Children need to have a thorough medical evaluation by a pediatrician to consider the possibility of a physical cause.
