Health assessment: Module 2: Preventative Screenings and Vaccines
The CDC and Healthy People 2020 continue to educate on the importance, the improved ease of access and insurance coverage for screenings and vaccinations. It is the responsibility of nurses to engage our ageing adults in self-advocating for services that benefit the individual and community health. How can you, as a registered nurse, impact older adults to encourage routine vaccination? What impact does this have on the community as a whole?
Create an infographic on the importance of one of the concepts for the module (either screenings or vaccines for older adults). Include at least (2) two scholarly sources, cited per APA on the infographic where used and add the references at the bottom of the infographic.
Choose one older adult community population (Examples: men, women, certain ethnic groups, etc.) and create an infographic on a topic of preventative screenings or vaccines for this population. Choose to focus on one specific preventative screening (like colonoscopy) or one specific vaccine (like pneumovax).
