NURS 4005 Week 1 Assignment: Emerging and Re-emerging Diseases Fact Sheet

Sir Francis Bacon said, “Knowledge is power.” This is most definitely true when it comes to diseases and how to prevent and treat them. As a nurse, you are charged with teaching patients how to prevent infectious diseases and what to do if they become infected. A powerful tool in your arsenal is the Fact Sheet. Usually comprised of one page of easy-to-read content, these leaflets can be distributed easily and can effectively inform your practice.

To prepare for this Assignment:

  • Select one disease that is either emerging or re-emerging in the world today.
  • Research the disease using both scholarly and non-scholarly resources.
  • Determine your audience (patients, other nurses, schools, etc.) that you would want to share the Fact Sheet with.
  • Select pieces of information that are appropriate for your audience.

By Day 7

Submit: A 1- to 2-page Fact Sheet.

  • Indicate the audience on the Fact Sheet.
  • Give a brief history of the disease.
  • What are the implications of the spread of the disease?
  • How does one detect and prevent the spread of this disease?
  • How is this disease treated?

Your Fact Sheet should be visually stimulating, appropriate for your audience, and formatted with bullet points for easy reading.

Support your “facts” with references.

Note: Your Fact Sheet must be supported with at least three scholarly sources of evidence in the literature.NURS 4005 Week 1 Assignment
