8 dimensions of wellness

Interview Assessment Based on the Eight Dimensions of Wellness
For this assignment you will do an assessment of someone you know using the Eight Dimensions of Wellness. This should be done as follows:
1. Identify someone that you can interview using the Eight Dimensions of Wellness as a guide. You can interview a friend, a relative, another student or a current client. (Be sure to disguise any identifying information.) In view of our current health situation, the interview can be done via telephone or computer if necessary.

2, Assess that individual based on the Eight Dimensions of Wellness. Includes a description of how that person functions in each of the eight dimensions. Based on the definition of each dimension and what you’ve learned about that person in that dimension, discuss your findings of whether that person meets the definition of healthy functioning or might there be some room for improvement or is there a serious problem? Discuss what led you to that conclusion. (Did the interviewee tell you this, or was it based on observation or prior knowledge or something else?)

3, If there are any dimensions that can be improved, what are some suggestions that you, as the health counselor, might make if you were actually the counselor for this individual. (Do NOT make these observations or recommendations to your interviewee if it is not appropriate to the relationship you have. Recommendations for now are just an exercise for this paper only.)

4, Finally, comment on your own thoughts and feelings as you conducted this interview. Were you comfortable? Did you feel capable of exploring each of the Dimensions? Were you more comfortable with some dimensions than with others? Do you feel your conclusions and suggestions are accurate, or are you a little unsure? What issues might you want to bring to a supervisor?

5. The paper should be organized as follows:
a. The first paragraph should include general information about the individual (e.g. gender, age, race/ethnicity/religion, marital status, etc.)
b. The general information should then be followed by 8 paragraphs, one paragraph for each dimension. Identify each paragraph with a heading naming the dimension you are discussing.
c. For each dimension describe what and how the person you are interviewing is doing in that dimension and whether you think this functioning is generally healthy, in need of some improvement, or seriously impaired. Discuss how you came to that conclusion. Include recommendations that you think might be helpful in improving functioning in each dimension if appropriate.
d. Next, there should then be a paragraph summarizing the individual’s overall wellness.
e. Finally, there should be a paragraph describing your own thoughts and feelings about the interview. Include ideas on what went well and what you might do differently next time.

Writing about Art

Please use some art related concept to show that the essay is about art
Course learning Objective: Gain analytic skills that employ a suitable vocabulary of historical terminology, cultural context stylistic analysis in evaluating the relationship between visual culture and history.

What is this assignment ? One of the most difficult tasks for anyone beginning to study in a specific field is learning the discipline- specific terminology. Think about it: lawyers write legal briefs in very particular ways, so do medical students when writing case studies. In art history, part of what you study is the discipline itself, its methodologies, its fields of study, and its terminology. You may have already noticed that terms like “style” or “form” are used in art history in a different way than in popular culture or fashion. So for your writing assignment, I am going to give you very specific guidelines to help guide you in writing your essay. The most important thing to consider is: have you prepared? Have you done the assigned readings and paid close attention to the terminology learned in the reading quizzes? Have you participated fully in the discussion sections and really used that as an opportunity to learn? If so, good! You have prepared yourself for this next stage. If you have not, you have to do some catch up and review, but you will have another opportunity at the end of the class to do this again. So this stage will be a good assessment of where you are in the class in terms of your learning.

How to complete it successfully: Your assignment is to write a brief paper (500-700 words) making a comparison between the two artworks shown below; one is an Egyptian sculpture the other Greek. You must make specific visual references to the examples shown here. Your comparison should be broken down as follows:

Paragraph 1: Begin with a topic sentence about style in art history. Describe the stylistic differences and similarities between these two sculptures, making specific reference to the actual artworks. You do not need to research the specific works of art, but you should identify which stylistic period the Greek sculpture belongs to. (refer back to the readings if necessary.)

Paragraph 2: Begin with a topic sentence about historical context in art history. Describe the different historical contexts of each sculpture. How is each work characteristic of its respective culture (its cultural, religious, or political beliefs)? Be sure to state how.

Paragraph 3 Begin with a topic sentence that summarizes your main points. Your conclusion must respond to the following two questions: It is clear that the Greeks learned the art of free standing sculpture from the Egyptians but why did they change it? What does this tell us about how different their beliefs and ideas were as separate cultures?

HCA 205 Week 5 US Health Care System Presentation

Description

For your Final Presentation, you will continue your Week 3 The U.S. Health Care Presentation: Part 1 assignment on the on the U.S. health care system by expanding on the information it presented. Please note, you are adding on to the assignment you started in Week 3. If you do not include the previous slides, it will negatively impact your score. Please review the rubric if you are unsure of the impact. Please correct issues and address recommendations from your instructor’s Week 3 assignment feedback, then continue adding Parts 2 through 5 as directed below.

In this assignment, you will prepare a 15- to 20-slide PowerPoint presentation with detailed speaker’s notes of 100–150 words for each slide, not including the title and reference slides. Newly graduated health care professionals (e.g., Doctors, Registered Nurses, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, etc.) are unfamiliar with the day-to-day operations addressing practice management, insurance coverage requirements (e.g., referrals, pre-authorizations), credentialing, accreditation, state and federal regulations, health care laws, and reimbursement methods. Their educational focus has been on learning how to diagnose and treat patients. Therefore, understanding the operational aspect in practice management is imperative to the financial viability of their future practice.

The CEO of the largest health care teaching hospital in the area asked you to present an overview of the U.S. health care system to a group of newly graduated health care professionals (e.g., Primary Physicians, Specialists, Hospitalists, Internists, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants). You have been tasked with creating a PowerPoint presentation that includes elements about history, major developments, stakeholders, costs, reforms, and beliefs as well as a comparison of the U.S. health care system to another country’s health care system.

Content:

Part 1:  Include the slides from your Week 3 Presentation

Part 2: The Cost of the U.S. Health Care System

  • Describe three different reimbursement methods (e.g., capitation, fee-for-service [FFS], pay-for-performance [P4P], value-based, episode of care, prospective reimbursement, diagnosis related group [DRG], patient-centered medical home [PCMH]).
    • Explain why you think one of the reimbursement methods you discussed is more effective at reducing health care costs overall while still ensuring the delivery of quality care.
  • Describe the use of two technological advancements (e.g., electronic medical record [EMRs], electronic health records [EHRs], medical research, improved equipment like magnetic resonance imaging [MRI], mammography, personalized medicine, mobile services like e-prescribing, disease registries, ).
    • Explain why you think these advancements have reduced costs overall while still ensuring the delivery of quality care.

Part 3: The United States Versus Other Health Care Systems: An International Perspective

  • Contrast the S. health care system with another country (e.g., Canada’s universal health care or South Africa compared with the U.S. health care system, etc.). You can use the same country discussed in the Week 4 Health Care Systems Around the World discussion.
    • Discuss how the other country’s health care system is funded.
    • Discuss disparities in health care from your chosen country.
    • Include at least one positive aspect from the other country’s health care system that you would like to see added to the S. health care system, explaining why you would like this addition.

Part 4: Reforms and Improvements

  • Describe two potential reforms and improvements currently being debated at either the local, state, or federal You may want to review the Laws and Regulations Affecting Health Care discussion prompt to help you with this component. Examples could include any of the following:
    • Federal modifications (e.g., antitrust reforms, CHIP, HSA or HRA, Medicare reform, Medicaid expansion, PPACA repeal, pharmaceutical regulations, development of a universal system, veterans’ health care, crossing borders for health care, clinical trial research, )
    • State modifications (e.g., Medicaid reform, income tax credits, adoption of state level universal health care, etc.)
    • Increased consumer controls (e.g., patient-centered care, provider choice, complementary and alternative care choices, activism for changes at the state and federal level, etc.)
    • Reimbursement changes (Medicare, Medicaid, managed care plans, traditional insurance plans, etc.)

Part 5: Conclusion: The Future of the U.S. Health Care System

  • Examine what you believe the S. health care system will resemble in the next 10 years by recommending two changes and addressing access to care, quality of care, and cost of care, including an example of each in your vision of the future health care system.

Getting started

Choose a public health nutrition problem in a community:

  • childhood obesity
  • childhood malnutrition
  • improvement of breastfeeding
  • iron deficiency anaemia
  • food security
  • other area of interest (subject to approval)

 

Select a location/community similar to the examples from the list below:

  • A rural village in a developing country e.g. Dacitan village in China
  • An urban centre in a developing country e.g., Chennai in urban India

Please do not choose an entire country or state. Please remember to make sure that your intervention is context and community specific. Please ensure that strategies/interventions are nutrition-based. You are allowed to focus on a broad approach if appropriate. Proposals that focus heavily on physical activity, alcohol, tobacco or clinical measures etc., are not appropriate.

Choose a target group:

This will be largely influenced by the public health nutrition problem you choose e.g. childhood obesity- children aged from (A-B years), women of reproductive age etc.

 

Guidelines for the presentation and written report: it is recommended that you structure your proposal as below. ***Please note that word count recommendations are a guide only***
