Understanding the Scope of Vulnerable Populations

Discussion 1

 

Understanding the Scope of Vulnerable Populations

Review the descriptions of the ten special populations addressed in Chapter 1 of your course textbook.  Identify the three groups you feel are most vulnerable. Explain your reasoning for selecting the groups based on:

  • An analysis of the statistical data/trends related to the populations. How did you use data to determine the three most vulnerable populations? Explain your thought process.
  • The World Health Organization’s formal definition of “health.”  How are the physical, mental, and social aspects of health compromised in these three vulnerable populations in comparison to the others?
  • The statistical data and the health compromises identified above. Create a list of at least three health service needs for each vulnerable group you identified.

Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by a minimum of two scholarly sources beyond your course text.  Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

 

 

Discussion 2

 

Factors Affecting Vulnerability and Assessment of Needs

 

This week’s second discussion forum will focus on two selected groups:

  • Vulnerable mothers and children
  • People affected by alcohol and substance abuse

Review the video segments titled “Premature Babies: Risks and Costs” (Vulnerable Mothers and Children group) and “Social Cost of Alcohol Abuse” (People Affected by Alcohol and Substance Abuse group) through the Films On Demand database or in the textbook.

  • For each segment, select three specific factors from Chapter 2 (e.g., age, gender, culture, ethnicity, education, and income) that are present.
  • Reflecting on your experiences and knowledge gained in previous courses, discuss how these factors relate to the group’s vulnerability.
  • Based on the selected factors, assess the health care needs that can be inferred for each group. Discuss which approach(es) to care from Chapter 4, Section 4.1 (i.e., preventive, treatment, or long term), might help address them.

Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by a minimum of two scholarly sources beyond your course text.  Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
