Discussion: Health Issues: From Global to Local
It is often said that the world is “becoming smaller.” Among the justifications for statements such as this is that people are more mobile than ever before, more likely to visit other countries, and more likely to be consumers of products shipped from other countries.
While there are many benefits to being citizens of a smaller world, there are also some disadvantages. Among these is the threat of disease and other health problems that originate elsewhere. What begins as a local health problem can quickly become a national or even an international health problem. As a nurse leader, you could be called upon to not only to help treat such issues but to help inform and educate your local population about the threat.
In this Discussion, you will examine one global healthcare issue and consider your potential role as a source of information for the population you serve.
To Prepare:
Review the World Health Organization’s (WHO) global health agenda in the Resources.
Identify and select one health issue at the global level that has implications at the local level.
Reflect on how a nurse leader might work with local authorities to inform and educate the local population about the global health issue you selected.
By Day 3 of Week 11
Post a summary of the global health issue you selected and explain how it has impacted the local population. Be specific and provide examples. Then, explain the data you would need to best inform/educate the local population about this global health issue. Describe at least one source you might consult and use to gather this data and provide a rationale for why you would consult this source. NURS 6050: Policy and Advocacy for Improving Population Health Content
One global healthcare issue that has significant implications at the local level is the COVID-19 pandemic. The World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic on March 11, 2020, and it has since spread to every corner of the globe, impacting the health and wellbeing of millions of people.
The impact of COVID-19 on the local population can be seen in a variety of ways. For example, in many areas, the pandemic has led to widespread job loss and economic hardship, as well as increased stress and mental health concerns. Additionally, COVID-19 has led to significant disruptions in healthcare systems, with many hospitals and clinics facing shortages of supplies and personnel.
As a nurse leader, one potential role in working with local authorities to inform and educate the local population about COVID-19 would be to gather and analyze data on the pandemic’s impact on the community. This could include data on the number of confirmed cases and deaths, as well as data on the economic and social impact of the pandemic.
One potential source of data on the impact of COVID-19 in the local population would be the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC has been tracking the spread of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic and has a wealth of information on the number of confirmed cases and deaths, as well as data on the impact of the pandemic on specific populations and communities. I would consult this source because it is a reliable and reputable source of data and information on COVID-19 and would provide up-to-date and accurate information on the pandemic’s impact on the local population.
