NUR4636 Week 7 Discussion Communicable Diseases Part 2
This is a continuation of the discussion from last week and I expect each of you to continue to integrate the movie and the TedTalk into some of the answers when appropriate.
Question 1: Describe one of the following (COVID-19, Zika, Ebola, Marberg, SARS or HIV/AIDS) as a communicable disease (causes, symptoms, mode of transmission, complications, treatment) and the demographic of interest (mortality, morbidity, incidence, and prevalence). Is this a reportable disease? If so, provide details about reporting time, whom to report to, etc. I am hoping that you will as a group not ALL pick the same communicable disease condition.
Question 2: Describe the determinants of health and explain how those factors contribute to the development of the communicable disease you chose. How does
Question 3: Discuss the epidemiologic triangle as it relates to the communicable disease you have selected. Include the host factors, agent factors (presence or absence), and environmental factors. Are there any special considerations or notifications for the community, schools, or general population?
Question 4: Explain the role of the community health nurse in relation to your chosen communicable disease (case finding, reporting, data collecting, data analysis, and follow-up).
