Vulnerable Populations

How would you describe a vulnerable population?
A vulnerable population is a group of people with certain characteristics that cause it to be at greater risk of having poor health. They include but are not limited to age, culture, disability, education, ethnicity, health insurance status, housing status, income, mental health, and race. According to Mary de Chesnay a vulnerable population can be defined “by virtue of their marginalized sociocultural status, their limited access to economic resources, or their personal characteristics such as age and gender.” Vulnerability is both an individual concept and a group concept.

What barriers may prevent these groups from obtaining needed services? In the reading assignment there is an example of Samoan elderly in the United States trying to remember the old remedies for treating ailments. Thus isolating them from current treatment and possibly causing more harm by remembering wrong.

What experiences have you had with vulnerable groups in your own life? I volunteer with Remote Area Medical, RAMUSA. I have been to Guyana and traveled to the Rupunini where the villages are very remote. Three days by canoe between some villages. Although the people in these villages appear very happy they do lack in basic health care such as dentistry or emergency medical attention. Although the Rupunini region missed the industrial revolution as we consider world population the same issues occur here in the United States as well. That is why RAM has instituted clinics stateside. I have also volunteered at the Coalition for the Homeless with their food drives and holiday meals. Many of the people are in an unfortunate point in their lives. The assistance they need may be only temporary but very…...

...How Does Knowledge of the Foundations and History of Nursing Provide a Context in Which to Understand Current Practice? Identify at Least Three Trends in Nursing Practice. How Have These Trends Influenced Your Perspective of Nursing Practice? In answering the above question, my thought immediate goes to, “You don’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been or come from.” “The American Association for the History of Nursing (AAHN) is a professional organization open to everyone interested in the history of nursing. The purpose of the Association shall be to foster the importance of history as relevant to understanding the past, defining the present, and influencing the future of nursing.” [ (About AAHN, 2007) ] The history of nursing and knowledge of foundations allows us an opportunity to ask why & then obtain answer(s) for current practices via documented evidence. This knowledge propels an individual from a level of ignorance to a focused level of education. Awareness of historical practices and events better assists us in understanding the why’s within this profession, we call registered nurse. Having knowledge of the foundations and history of nursing helps nursing practice today because it shows not only how far we have come in healthcare and nursing but also how important education has been and still is for nurses. Looking back on history and research of practices help us understand why we do some of the things we do today as nurses such......

Nursing History

...  It is important to know the basis of our roles in nursing as practiced today.  Knowing our history and the foundations we stand on, promote forward thinking with regards to perfecting our practice. Three trends that stand out in our history are community health organization, reformation of sanitation and prevention of infection, and the need for formalized education and registration of professional nurses.   Organizing community health is best seen by the works of St. Vincent DePaul and the Daughter's of Charity. Organization of nurses to aid in the Civil War was monumental in establishing our stance in society.  Hannefin, D. (1989). "Daughters of the church: A popular history of the daughters of charity in the united states 1809-1987" . (Book 17 ed.). Brooklyn, NY: Vincentian Digital Books. Retrieved from http://via.library.depaul.edu/vincentian_ebooks/17   The American Red Cross also changed the direction of community awareness when it came to health and the role of community partnership to assist those in need.  Thus, driving the pull of working together.   Florence Nightingale headlined the reformation of sanitation within hospitals and communities.  She started the movement of preventing the spread of disease.  One could venture that her efforts started the idea of evidence based practice. Woodham-Smith, C. (1950). Florence Nightingale. London, England: The Reprint Society.  She was an early researcher.  Her connections of mortality rates and sanitary conditions......

History of Nursing

...Knowing the history or origin of things is important regardless the subject matter. We all want to know how things came about; this applies to nursing as well. It’s important to study the history of nursing because it certainly influences current nursing practice. It’s humbling to know how far nursing has evolved and the men and women who made that evolution possible. It’s important to celebrate these men and women and never forget their contribution to this wonderful profession. Can you imagine if Florence Nightingale had never implemented sanitary conditions in hospitals or advocated for the organization and advancement of nursing education? What about Mildred Montag who created the two year associate degree which most nurses carry today including those of us here who are trying to get our BSN. What if Dorothea Dix had never recognized the plight of the sick, the mentally ill and so forth? I think to move forward it is always wise to know where we came from; hence that’s why we study our history. The first trend that has influenced my nursing perspective is education. It is clear that even back then nursing education was in the forefront and was deemed most important by a number of these nurse leaders – Florence Nightingale, Linda Richards – first person to obtain diploma in nursing in the US, Mary Mahoney – First professional black nurse to complete 16 month program to obtain her nursing etc. so education is key today as it was back then as evidenced by nurses......

Statistical charts and graphs were utilized by Florence Nightingale for the support of her theory as the first nursing theory. For example, her theory related to a positive, clean environment. In 1859, Florence Nightingale published a small book called Notes on Nursing, relating to how to take care of babies (Florence Nightingale). Florence Nightingale was responsible for providing a new image for female nurses as a profession. She opened the Nightingale School of Nursing, the first formal nurse training program.

Nursing History

...the subject in its entirety. Knowledge of medical research from the past is a necessity for any form of medical advancement that may take place in the present. In the class lecture it was stated that “by understanding the history and foundation of nursing nurses can develop a sense of professional identity and build a better future for the profession and the people they serve.” While reviewing the “Nursing Timeline of Historical Events,” I discovered multiple nursing trends. The first being, for a large portion of history, the nursing profession was dominated by individuals without any formal training, and they were often uneducated. The second trend I noticed involved their attire; nurses often wore a nurse’s cap, used to keep hair away from the patients, and maintain a sanitary environment. The last trend noticed, was the Vow of Hospitality, originating from Saint Jeanne Jugan. In many ways these trends have largely influenced not only my perspective on the nursing practice but nursing as a whole. I have come to understand the importance of the many years of formal training in school that is required to enter the nursing profession. As for the nursing caps, in many maternity wards, nurses still wear them today. Lastly, being that the nursing profession is such a humble profession, many nurses themselves tend to be hospitable in nature, in a way Saint Jeanne Jugan’s vow of hospitality, still plays a major role in nursing....
