EXPLAIN THE ROLE OF HEALTH EDUCTION IN HEALTH PROMOTION NRS 429
Topic 5 DQ 1
Explain the role of health education in health promotion. How is the nursing process used in developing health education? Describe a contemporary issue, local or global, that a family may experience today. What steps would the nurse take to address these as part of a health education plan?
One way to implement programs for health promotion and disease prevention is through health education. Experience in health-related subjects are provided through health education. Strategies for health education are developed with the specific population in mind. Health education provides tools to build capacity and support behavior change in an appropriate setting, as well as information on specific health topics to target populations, including the health benefits and threats they face.
Individual, group, institutional, community, and systemic strategies for enhancing health knowledge, attitudes, skills, and behavior are all components of health education. Health education aims to positively influence individuals’ and communities’ health behaviors, as well as the living and working conditions that affect their health. Just like in everything else in healthcare, health education can use the nursing process to ensure better care. We assess, intervene and evaluate to ensure that the right care or information is given. The pain global issue a family can face is poverty, which is the #1 on global issues facing the world. A nurse may take steps to address these issues by helping low-income families apply for Medicaid or food stamps, and sometimes these government agencies help the families get a job.

You are right. According to what we are reading about health promotion by Angel Falkner, Health promotion is a process of enabling people to increase control over, and improve, their health. It moves beyond a focus on individual behavior toward a wide range of social and environmental interventions. Nurses play an integral role in providing health education and resources to many patients. Health promotion is embedded in the daily routine of nursing practice teaching the community; The SDOH includes a variety of factors that all have a significant effect on; individual life and health status; for example, relationships, society, community, and individuals; these are factors typically influence by the environment from the circumstances of the need.
Jeff is a 28n year 28 old young man who was involved in a motorcycle accident and sustained multiple compound fractures. The functional model of health would view the patient’s acute injuries as a primary concern and consider how these injuries will affect the patient’s ability to return home or work and return to normal health. The health care team for a patient for whom this model applies would focus on formulating a POC that helps set goals related to returning the patient to optimum functioning capacity. That is precisely the health promotion function.

Just as you said, health education is a very important part of health promotion. “Health education focuses on prevention, increasing health equity, and decreasing negative health outcomes such as availability and accessibility of health services, benefiting all stakeholders.” (Touro University, 2020, p.1) The ultimate goal of health education is to promote positive health patterns and help people reach positive health outcomes. Health education also works to tackle health disparities across the nation.

Health education is the first essential step to working towards health promotion. A desire to learn is the first task to obtain from a client. If the client does not express desire, formal learning and education cannot be performed effectively. Building one’s education in a health-related topic improves their knowledge of a subject. It furthers the chance for an individual to utilize self-management health promotion strategies to benefit their health. It is vital to address any barriers one may face to learning. This could be related to finances, education, resources, or language. Incorporating these into learning encourages the client to follow through with recommendations from a provider. The nursing process is used to section out ways to create a care plan by ensuring all the steps have been developed. If the actions of health education and the nursing process are used correctly, one’s health will improve significantly. However, frequent reassessments need to be made to determine if the current method is still working or if adjustments need to be made.
