Keiser University Social Determinants of Health Health & Medical Question

Question Description

I’m studying and need help with a Health & Medical question to help me learn.

Post your initial response to one of the two topics below.

Social Determinants of Health

Topic 1

Increasingly, health policymakers are becoming aware of the social determinants of health and the role they play in prevention disease and promoting health and wellness.

  • In the “Frameworks for Action in Policy and Politics” chapter, examine Box 1-1 (Political Aspects of the Social Determinants of Health) and Figure 1-6 (The Who, What, Where, When, and Why of Nursing’s Policy Influence). Compare these with the story about Lilian Wald’s work in New York City.
  • Reflect on the “what” of Wald’s strategies. In your opinion, which did she use effectively? Looking further at the “what” in Figure 1-6, answer any one of the following questions: Discuss at least three competencies/strategies that you have used effectively. Identify three competencies/strategies that you don’t currently use and discuss how you might incorporate them into your advocacy toolbox.

Topic 2

Review the four recommendations in the IOM report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health and find your state’s action coalition.

  • Discuss your state’s action coalition’s work as it aligns with these four recommendations. Is each recommendation being addressed?
  • Based on your analysis of the website, how would you describe your state’s progress toward meeting the IOM recommendations?
