As a public health nurse at a free clinic, you are assessing and interviewing a 21-year-old woman who has come to the clinic because she doesn’t have any energy and hasn’t felt good in weeks. During the interview, you leam that she averages one meal per day, smokes up to two packs of cigarettes per day, and rummages through trash to find items she can sell to purchase food, snacks, and cigarettes. She admits to using street drugs every once in a while when she can find someone who will share with her. She admits her life is a mess and she doesn’t know how to make it better.
- What data can you gather based on available client information? 2. What questions should you ask yourself while interviewing this client? 3. During planning, hove can you, as the nurse, best assist this client? 4. What are the potential strategies that would assist the client to a “better” life?
Technological. Tesla is the leading innovator of technology in electric cars and is transforming the automotive industry. However, the existing battery technology has some drawbacks. The Tesla Model S can only travel around 230-300 miles on a single charge (Thompson, 2015, p. 254). This requires a solid infrastructure of charging stations which is still being developed. This need for charging stations creates “range anxiety” because though charging stations do exist along many major highways, however, owners may have difficulty finding charging stations in more remote areas (Thompson, 2015, p. 262). Environmental. The market for electric cars was created in response to a growing awareness of environmental issues and impacts such as global warming and climate change. These impacts are noted by both governments and consumers which have encouraged the expansion of electric car technology through government policies and changing consumer demands. Tesla’s electric cars have zero carbon emissions and do not contribute to the carbon footprint, unlike other electric, hybrids, or gasoline cars (Tesla, 2017; U.S. Department of Energy, 2017). Legal. Tesla has faced difficulty with state laws and regulations regarding the Tesla’s decision to vertically integrate sales and service instead of selling through authorized dealers. “Legislation either forbidding or severely restricting the ability of automakers to sell vehicles directly to the public [has] been passed in 48 states (Thompson, 2015, p. 261).” This results in strategic challenges for Tesla in regards to their showrooms that offer both sales and service. Porter’s Five Forces Industry Rivalry. The U.S. automobile industry is a mature multi-billion-dollar oligopoly. General Motors, the highest selling car manufacturer in 2016, realized $166.4 billion in revenue (General Motors, 2017). The large competitors and brands control market share and the industry is highly competitive. In a fight for flat market share, competitors design new car models and redesign existing car models, and offer attractive incentives to influence potential customers.>GET ANSWER
