Diverse Populations & Nursing Practice

Purpose: Develop a nursing practice plan using the Registered Nurse Standards for strategies in managing the health issues that impact those of a chosen diverse population in the local, national, or global community of Australia.
Word Count: Between 2200-2500 words in length
Format: You are required to use headings to structure your report. Do not include a defined Introduction or Concluding paragraphs. The Report will be presented as a formal academic paper.
Description:
In this assignment students are required to:
Choose one diverse population of your choice based on the populations outlined in the course content, that is: children, older person, men, women, minority groups, culturally and linguistically diverse persons, those with a physical or mental disability.
Then present a report discussing the key areas to follow. You will also propose a nursing plan that seeks to address one of the health outcomes you have discovered for this group.
Within your assignment you need to begin with:
• WHY your chosen population is considered diverse and include:
o Social determinants of health and how they impact this population;
o Health inequalities (the differences in health status between population
groups) such as differences in wellbeing, risk of disease, abuse/violence,
healthy life expectancy, morbidity and mortality;
o Health inequities (differences in health status between population groups that
are socially produced, systematic in their unequal distribution across the
population, avoidable and unfair) such as difference in access, affordability,
income etc;
o Health outcomes – Discuss key health issues impacting this population ie
certain disease, mental health issues, injuries etc
(Approx.1200 words)
• Discuss the nursing care considerations that would be important in caring for an individual of this population. Your discussion should highlight and link to three Registered Nurse Standards such as:
o Standard 2: Engaging in a therapeutic and professional relationship How to communicate effectively, and how to be respectful of your chosen population’s dignity, culture, values, beliefs and rights.
How to provide support and direct your chosen population to resources to optimise their health-related decisions
(Approx.1200 words)
Referencing should be included using APA 7th Edition guidelines. It is expected that the students use peer reviewed sources for referencing. For this assessment and to support your findings, you are to use at least 15 peer-reviewed references in your paper.
