Part 6: Community Nursing

 

Topic: School Health

The school nurse has a unique role in the provision of school health services for children with special health needs, including children with chronic illnesses and disabilities with various degrees of severity. This case describes the role of the school nurse caring for a child with type 1 diabetes.

Susan has two students with type 1 diabetes in her school, one requires blood glucose monitoring and daily insulin injections, while the other has a continuous insulin infusion pump. The incidence of type 1 diabetes presents a complex challenge to school healthcare providers. Type 1 diabetes ranks as the second most common chronic illness in childhood, second only to asthma. The American Diabetes Association (ADA, 2015) reports that about 193,000 Americans under age 20 live with diabetes and 17,900 are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes annually, and another 5,300 with type 2 diabetes. Children with diabetes are considered disabled and as such are protected under federal laws that prohibit discrimination against children with disabilities. Studies show that the majority of school personnel have an inadequate understanding of effective diabetes management. It is best for the student to monitor blood glucose and respond to the results as quickly as possible to avoid possible complications.

1. What are the essential elements of a diabetes medical management plan for each student with diabetes in the school?

2. When the school nurse is unavailable, who is legally responsible for providing care to a child with diabetes?

 

Part 7: Pathophysiology

 

The psychosocial aspect of female health is just as important as the management of Diabetes and Hypertension. The World Health Organization (WHO, n.d.) addresses women’s mental health facts as follows: 

Depressive disorders account for close to 41.9% of the disability from neuropsychiatric disorders among women compared to 29.3% among men.}

Leading mental health problems of the older adults are depression, organic brain syndromes and dementias. A majority are women.

An estimated 80% of 50 million people affected by violent conflicts, civil wars, disasters, and displacement are women and children. 
Lifetime prevalence rate of violence against women ranges from 16% to 50%.

At least one in five women suffer rape or attempted rape in their lifetime. 

Select a mental health illness as a diagnosis for a female patient, perhaps one you have encountered in the clinical setting. 

Topic: Depression:

2. How is it treated?

a. Pharmacology and non-pharmacology 

3. What is your follow-up?
