The Health Belief Model (HBM) is a psychological model that is use in nursing to explain and predict health behaviors of patients diagnosed with chronic disease like MI. In educating the patient using this model, the nurse will focus on the attitudes and beliefs of the patient. The nurse will encourage the patient by educating to recognize and promptly response to signs and symptoms of any complication from the MI. In-depth education opportunities will be planned and evaluated. The overall goal is for the client to return to pre-hospital living condition in an improved state of wellness.
These beliefs, values, and practices influence the health promotion and disease prevention in which they seek (Edelman & Mandle, 2010). The assessment of these practices is an essential role nurse’s play in caring for each individual and family. By using the family focused approach the nurse can determine the support and care a family can provide to the patient. The nurse can then assess the family’s potential of obtaining optimal health. The purpose of this paper is for the nurse to complete a health assessment of a family by using Gordon’s 11 functional health patterns and the system’s approach.
Health Promotion in Nursing There are various definitions that apply to health promotion. Health promotion can be “the science and art of helping people change their lifestyle to move toward a state of optimal health.” (Edelman, 2014, p. 12). According to Edelman there happens to be a more complex definition that was commissioned by the U.S. Public Health Service stating health promotion is ““the process of advocating health in order to enhance the probability that personal (individual, family, and community), private (professional and business), and public (federal, state, and local government) support of positive health practices will become a societal norm” (Edelman, 2014, p. 12). Health promotion applied in nursing practice is vital for patients. Nurses apply health promotion everyday to their patients wither they realize it or not.
Family Assessment: Gordon's 11 Functional Health Patterns Shirley Allen Grand Canyon University Family Assessment: Gordon's 11 Functional Health Patterns Healthcare today is centered around health promotion. A framework for prevention of disease and health promotion is provided by Healthy People 2010. Gordon’s 11 functional health patterns gives us structure for collecting material through assessment of the patient and their family and that assists in spotting lifestyle patterns. The mentioned patterns assist in leading nursing diagnoses and interventions for current or likely complications to advance health and well-being (Edelman & Mandle, 2010). This composition will layout two to three Q & A for all patterns used to evaluate the family and decipher the conclusion of a particular family utilizing Gordon’s 11 functional health patterns.
They should know how to talk to children in order to get accurate information to help in diagnosis and treatment. As Pediatric nurse practitioners, they not only take care of the children but also need to teach children’s family members how to prevent childhood diseases, and about proper nutrition for their growth and development.

Running head: Family Health Assessment Family Health Assessment Grand Canyon University: Family Center Health Promotion NRS-429V August 8th, 2012 Family Health Assessment Everyday changes in healthcare make family assessment more important as ever as a tool for health care providers seeking to assist the family move themselves toward higher levels of wellness. A family system is a group of individuals and the pattern of relationships between them (Servonsky & Gibbons, 2005). The family defines its views of health, makes decisions regarding health practices, and is the most frequent provider of health care to family members. In 1987, Marjory Gordon challenged professional nurses to adopt a standard nursing framework to guide data collection in the assessment phase of the nursing process (Nettle, et al, 1993). Gordon delineated a typology of 11 health patterns as a universal framework for nurses.
The symptom is usually what brings the patient to seek out health care (Humphreys et al., 2008) and adherence to treatment by the patient is crucial. The nurse who provides a biopsychosocial view of the symptoms to help the patient better deal with their symptoms is imperative to this adherence. The Theory provides many target areas for research and furthers our knowledge of the development of symptom management. To provide a greater understanding
This theory has been used to help the new generation of nurses to view the human being as a whole with a connection between body, mind, spirit and the environment, understand transpersonal relationship, and create caring moments in nursing practice to improve patient care to obtain positive outcomes. Watson’s theory focus in caring as it must to remain constant. The words “human care” in Watson original book, was later changed to “human caring” or “caring” to describe transpersonal interaction, caring moments, and carative factors, elements of Watson’s theory (Watson, 2012). Watson describes caring as an intentional act from the nurses. In her theory, Watson emphasis that the nurse has
I will first provide an overview of the issue in relation to both these fields of nursing and discuss why it is important and the impact it has on nursing care. I will then highlight any similarities and/or differences that may rise between the two fields. Adult nurses provide a high standard of essential personal care with dignity and compassion, while also being able to undertake complex interventions and use specialist skills, such as communication-the basic skill needed to survive as a nurse. Philippa Sully (2003) stated that “development of effective working relationships underpins all aspects of nursing practice. Whether we are exploring the best way to arrange shift cover or discuss with patients and their families the most appropriate community care, how we communicate depends on our professional relationships with all those involved.” In other words, communication is a key aspect in nursing as a whole.
