Addressing Diabetes and Obesity in the Elderly with Nutrition

A 7 page paper discussing controlling diabetes and obesity in the elderly through better nutrition. Intervention that seeks to control both diabetes and obesity in the elderly is not an easy task, but it is one that at least is logical.

Controlling diabetes and obesity in the elderly through nutrition is not easy, but it is possible. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

A 6 page paper. The US Census Bureau reported there were more than 35 million Americans over the age of 65 in the year 2000 and those over the age of 85 are the largest growing population.

This paper explores the data and the reasons so many of our elderly do not receive adequate nutrition. The writer also reports the most recent guidelines regarding a proper diet for persons over 65. These guidelines include recommendations for food categories and for specific vitamins. The results of a lack of these daily nutrients are included. B Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Changes in the US Health Care System and Nurses' Roles

A 7 page paper discussing the state of several aspects of the US health care system and nurses' roles within both the current system and that which continues to emerge. One of the primary qualities of US health care today is that it is in flux. It has been changing dramatically since the advent of managed care; continued budgetary pressures and the ongoing shortage of nurses dictate that further changes are made in the future. Nursing itself is changing as well, as those who have made nursing their life profession approach retirement age themselves. Those new to health care now face higher career demands than those who went before them. The new generation of nurses will need to be even more adaptable to change and more conversant with technology as it continues to change the face of health care. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

Corrections Nursing and the Community

A 7 page paper discussing how the correctional facility nurse can have effect in the local community. The US penal system guarantees appropriate health care to prison inmates. US Supreme Court decisions have determined that withholding any medical treatment where there is urgent need constitutes "cruel and unusual punishment," which of course is not allowed by the Eighth Amendment to the US Constitution or by the American character. Providing nursing service within the prison community offers distinct challenges, but it also offers opportunities that otherwise might never be available to health care providers. Prisons often hold individuals that public health professionals have difficulty locating; extending public health screening to the correctional setting can have direct benefit both within the prison and in the local community when individual inmates are released. Includes an outline. Bibliography lists 6 sources.


Cost Effective Measures in Maintenance of Mental Health Treatments and Possible Alternative Therapies

This is a 7 page paper discussing cost effective measures in mental health treatment. The Surgeon General in the United States has issued a report which estimates that "one out of every five Americans suffers from some form of mental disorder with direct and indirect costs to society totaling nearly $200 billion a year". In addition to the number of those considered affected by a mental health illness within the country, the range and diagnoses of mental health illnesses vary a great deal. While those with severe mental health conditions may be able to be "reliably" diagnosed and treated in the medical community, there are those who cannot afford medical mental health treatment as they may be uninsured and there are also those who may be less easily diagnosed or may be associated with mental disorders which relate to alcoholism and/or substance abuse therefore creating a large and diverse population in need of mental health care. The mental health community has also come to the realization that mental health care treatment costs are escalating while funding is not, resulting in mental health professionals seeking other more cost-effective treatments for their patients but treatments which must also maintain the effectiveness of traditional treatment as well. Since alternate treatments have been studied in the past decade, it has been found that while many alternative treatments are cost-effective, many are also as effective as traditional treatments and some have proven more-effective than traditional therapies. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Drop Dead Gorgeous - The Inherent Risks of Liposuction

Education Needs Assessment: Use of Restraints

A 7 page paper discussing the need for an in-house short course program addressing the use of physical and chemical restraints of elderly nursing home residents. Restraints are notorious for being misused; what is discussed less in the popular press is the benefit that they can provide. The purpose of such restraints is to prevent injury stemming from patients' attempts to do something for which they need assistance. The use of restraints both supports and contradicts the ethical principles of autonomy and beneficence, and an in-service refresher can serve to reconcile that contradiction. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
