Community/public health nurses implement a population-focused approach that encompasses health protection, health promotion, and disease prevention. Interventions often target vulnerable populations or those demonstrating increased risk of developing an adverse health outcome. Risk is an epidemiologic term that refers to a higher probability of illness in certain groups versus others. Vulnerable populations often experience multiple cumulative risks. As health care providers we note that some groups have greater resilience; resilience is the ability to resist the effects of vulnerability. It is important to learn what factors make some people more resilient than others.
As a registered nurse you must be familiar with community agencies that provide services to vulnerable populations. This information should be utilized to provide continuity of care from an acute care agency to the out-patient community based setting. Community-based resources are also utilized to prevent illness and promote health. This week you are to consider the vulnerable population you have chosen and identify your local community resources that are available to meet this group’s needs. Then respond to the following questions.

By Wednesday at 11:59 pm EST

1. First, identify your local community (where you live, or the nearest urban area to you) and the vulnerable population from the list provided above. Note: You will use this same local community for the M1 – M4 discussions. Place the name of your vulnerable population in the subject line of your post.

By Friday at 11:59pm EST:
2. What makes this population \”vulnerable?\”
3. Discuss the effects of social, cultural, and economic factors on vulnerability. How can poverty (i.e., “being poor”) and other social factors affect A) cumulative risk, B) resiliency, and C) vulnerability? Make certain that you list each of these.
4. How can nurses working in the community affect or alter vulnerability in this group? Develop a plan listing the 3 levels of prevention to reflect your ideas. (Refer to text Ch. 1, including Table 1-1 for examples of levels of prevention)
5. What regulatory/legal factors impact the availability of services to your defined group? List at least 2 regulatory/legal factors
6. Include citations and references as needed in APA format.
