Purpose of assessment task: Providing health related education to clients plays an important role within health promotion for the community health nurse.
The purpose of this assessment is to provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge of health education provided by the community health nurse and its role within health promotion. Assignment task: Discuss the role of the community health nurse in planning evidence based health education relevant to one knowledge deficit identified within Anne Giovanni’s case study (Breast Cancer) in an effort to improve her health outcomes. Anne’s Case Study: Anne Giovanni is a 26 year old Italian Catholic primary school teacher who resides with her grandmother. Anne’s grandmother is heavily involved in their Roman Catholic Church in East Brunswick and considers faith to be an important part of family life and values. Anne has had a boyfriend for two years who she sees weekly but otherwise spends most of her time with her girlfriends from Church. Anne has been referred to you by her General Practitioner for education after she had attended an appointment in tears, confused by the news that her best friend has been diagnosed with breast cancer, requiring a double mastectomy. Anne was under the impression that “only old women” can be diagnosed with breast cancer and is now afraid for her own health. Since hearing the news of her friend, Anne has heard all sorts of rumours about breast cancer. Anne has heard that because she has been wearing an underwire bra since a young age she is more likely to get breast cancer and her grandmother has said that because she hasn’t had children yet she will probably get breast cancer when she is older. Anne has returned to the clinic two weeks after her last appointment, having gone away to think about some of the education you provided to her about breast cancer. She is grateful for the information you shared but has one burning question “Sometimes my breasts hurt a lot, and I think it has been since I received the cervical cancer vaccine, could it cause breast cancer?” Anne’s question makes you question whether you need to evaluate the success of your health teaching. You question Anne further on her knowledge of the Human Papilloma vaccination only to find that since receiving the vaccine in her teens, she has been of the belief that she does not need protection when engaging in sexual activity because she is protected from “the icky” diseases now, and “I’m in a committed relationship and neither of us has been with anyone else”. She insists that her boyfriend “uses the withdrawal method” when you ask her about family planning.
