NRNP 6550 Week 1 Discussion Including Response; Medicolegal Impacts on Health Promotion

Vaccination can prevent the emergence and spread of disease. It is no surprise that it is a supported public health promotion issue. Many of the diseases targeted by vaccines are childhood diseases that impact the young; hence vaccination can prevent infants, children, and teens from potentially harmful diseases that can even be deadly.

But immunizations are not just for children. Protection from some childhood vaccines can wear off over time. Adults may also be at risk for vaccine-preventable disease due to age, job, lifestyle, travel, or other health conditions.

For this Discussion, review the immunization recommendations for patients across the lifespan. Reflect on how these recommendations might differ for patients who are immunocompromised or on immunosuppressive therapy. Consider how patient factors, such as age group and gender, might affect which immunizations are recommended by nurse practitioners for their patients.

  • Review the Learning Resources on medicolegal and health promotion considerations.
  • Reflect on how medicolegal recommendations may impact health promotion strategies for the advanced practice nurse.

Write a post comparison of the differences in immunizations that are recommended for patients ages 11–24, 25–64, and 65 years of age and older. Then, explain how these immunizations might impact patients who are immunocompromised or on immunosuppressive therapy. Be specific and provide examples by age group and gender.  With 3 APA style citations

  1. Identify and describe the three levels of prevention.  Be able to provide examples
  2. Identify health screenings that are recommended by age
    1. Cancers such as prostate and breast, LDL screening, osteoporosis
  3. Identify recommendations for administration of pertussis, tetanus, and pneumococcal vaccines
  4. Distinguish between live, attenuated, and inactivated vaccines

Week 1: Medicolegal and Health Promotion

The story of humankind contains many impressive accomplishments. Yet, in order to turn the page on any advancement, it is often necessary to address its impact, including any ethical or legal considerations that must be addressed.

This is certainly true of health accomplishments. Medical professionals continue to learn new ways to address both existing and emerging health concerns. With each achievement comes the need to address the extent to which regulation and/or ethics impacts behavior, informs decision-making, and guides health promotion activities.

This week, you examine this impact. You analyze medicolegal impacts on health promotion by comparing differences in immunizations for differing age populations and consider the impact on immunocompromised patients. You also identify concepts related to medicolegal recommendations and health promotion initiatives.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • Compare immunization recommendations for patients across the lifespan
  • Analyze the effects of immunizations on immunocompromised or immunosuppressed patients
  • Analyze the effects of patient factors on immunization recommendations

Discussion: Medicolegal Impacts on Health Promotion

Vaccination can prevent the emergence and spread of disease. It is no surprise that it is a supported public health promotion issue. Many of the diseases targeted by vaccines are childhood diseases that impact the young; hence vaccination can prevent infants, children, and teens from potentially harmful diseases that can even be deadly.  

But immunizations are not just for children. Protection from some childhood vaccines can wear off over time. Adults may also be at risk for vaccine-preventable disease due to age, job, lifestyle, travel, or other health conditions.

For this Discussion, review the immunization recommendations for patients across the lifespan. Reflect on how these recommendations might differ for patients who are immunocompromised or on immunosuppressive therapy. Consider how patient factors, such as age group and gender, might affect which immunizations are recommended by nurse practitioners for their patients.

To Prepare:

  • Review the Learning Resources on medicolegal and health promotion considerations.
  • Reflect on how medicolegal recommendations may impact health promotion strategies for the advanced practice nurse.

By Day 3

Post a comparison of the differences in immunizations that are recommended for patients ages 11–24, 25–64, and 65 years of age and older. Then, explain how these immunizations might impact patients who are immunocompromised or on immunosuppressive therapy. Be specific and provide examples by age group and gender.  

By Day 6

Respond to at least two of your colleagues on two different days and expand upon your colleagues’ posts by recommending which immunizations should be recommended to address immunocompromised or immune suppressed patients and explain why.

History Notecard 

Use this worksheet to organize your thoughts before developing a differential diagnosis list.

  1. Indicate key symptoms (Sx) you have identified from the history. Start with the patient’s reason(s) for the encounter and add additional symptoms obtained from further questioning.
  2. Characterize the attributes of each symptom using “OLDCARTS”. Capture the details in the appropriate column and row.
  3. Review your findings and consider possible diagnoses that may correlate with these symptoms. (Remember to consider the patient’s age and risk factors.) Use your ideas to help guide your physical examination in the next section of the case.

Problem Statement

Elisa Henderick, a 16-year-old female, has lost 20 pounds gradually over the past six months due to excessive exercise, food obsession, and self-perceived overeating despite being significantly underweight (BMI 15.7). Additional general health issues include secondary amenorrhea and a recent metatarsal stress fracture. Periods of restriction are alternated with episodes of binge-eating and self-induced vomiting (two times per week on average), as well as the usage of laxatives for “constipation”. She reports tiredness and a mild loss of interest in her usual tasks. Striking for straight A’s, parent’s divorce one year ago, and social phobias related to other people’s views of her weight are psychosocial stressors. Physical findings are significant for orthostatic hypotension, dry skin and scalp hair, lanugo body hair, calluses of the dorsal aspect of the right hand, mild angular stomatitis, and bilateral parotid enlargement.

Management Plan

PLANNING

  • Primary Diagnosis: Anorexia Nervosa (binge-eating/purging, type: mild)
  • Status/Condition: Fair
  • Code Status:
  • Allergies: NKDA
  • Admit to Unit: Psychiatric Unit
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Diet: Oral Nutrition
  • IVF:
  • Critical Drips:
  • Respiratory:
  • Pulse Oximetry monitoring daily.
  • Medications:
  • Fluoxetine (Prozac) 10 mg QD

  • Zofran 24 mg QD PRN nausea
  • Multivitamin 1 co QD for 7 days
  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine) 50 mg PO QD for 7 days Nursing Orders:
  • Obtain weight BIW
  • Obtain vital signs q 4 hours daily: o BP (lying and standing) o Pulse (lying and standing) o Temperature o Respiratory Rate
  • Monitor potassium levels. Notify physician if potassium < 3 mmol/L.
  • Monitor fluid balance.
  • Document initial daily energy intake at initiation of refeeding, progression in intake and maximum number of daily calories consumed, and macronutrient distribution.
  • Monitor and recognize refeeding syndrome.
  • Monitor mental state.
  • Monitor compensatory behaviors, purging in toilets after a meal.
  • Chart physical activity and level of work. Follow Up Lab tests:
  • Electrolytes and phosphate daily for 3 days. Diagnostic testing:
  • Bone Density Scan Consults:
  • Consult dentist for dental optimization outcomes.
  • Consult for a nutritional rehabilitation program.

Patient Education and Health Promotion:

To ensure that the patient and the parent understands the medical rationale for nutrition meal plan guidance, patient education should be offered. Parents may need to take the lead on meal preparation and consumption after discharge. Patient is engaged in severe limiting or purging habits, thus, needs to discontinue exercising until the patient builds a healthy relationship with food. The primary line of treatment for children and adolescents with anorexia nervosa is family counseling, according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. For those with anorexia nervosa, therapy may be recommended either directly one-on-one or in a family setting. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a specific sort of treatment that is frequently provided to patients. It aids people in realizing that their thought patterns may be incorrect or skewed, which enables them to gradually alter their belief systems (Chand et al., 2022). Although the reasons of hypermetabolism are not fully understood, weight gain is made challenging by an increase in metabolism after refeeding. To achieve minimal weight gain objectives, patients might need at least 2200 calories per day. Although the impact may linger for months, metabolism gradually stabilizes (Reese, 2022). Physical symptoms frequently go away before psychological ones during recovery, which might take a while. Discharge planning and required follow-up care: An important element to support recovery from AN has been identified as multidisciplinary approaches, which include nutritional, psychological, physical, and psychiatric interventions for patients with anorexia nervosa. These approaches should be used throughout the continuum of care, from inpatient to outpatient modalities (Proulx- Cabana et al., 2021). Patient assessed as physically stable by medical team. Consistently completing suggested full meal plan. Depending on openness and engagement in therapy, temperament discharge ranges from fair to good. Relapse is common; thus, treatments should be followed by a long period of relapse preventive therapy. Following weight restoration, relapse prevention therapy should involve at least a year of monthly outpatient consultations with nutritional and psychiatric doctors.
