Initial Post

For this week’s discussion, you should focus on the vulnerable population group that you choose during Week 1 for your paper. Select one of the following topics and respond to the thread corresponding to the question/discussion, utilizing at least three scholarly references to support your post. As a class, please make sure that all topics are addressed.

Note: As you are choosing a topic, please try to make sure that all topics are chosen by at least by one person. You can see this by noting if anyone has posted to the topic within the corresponding threads.

  1. Discuss how low literacy within your vulnerable population group affects the group’s health and how you, as an APRN, can improve their overall health literacy.
  2. How do the three (social, distributive, market) concepts/types of justice affect the health of your vulnerable population? How would you suggest enhancing social justice in advanced practice nursing?
  3. Analyze how you could motivate the vulnerable population that you chose in Week 1 to make changes. What is your primary health concern for this group and what theory might you utilize to encourage them to make behavior changes?
