Why does diversity among individuals, as well as cultures provides a challenge for nurses when it applies to health promotions?The lecture notes and other related resourced viewed over the past two weeks have provided me with a better insight into my learning styles. I could address my learning barriers and ways to optimize my learning outcome. I reflected on my cultural barriers in illness prevention-based education and health promotions. What could I do to enhance health promotions related to the health of the public? The American Nurses Association(ANA) could answer that question. The ANA exists to promote the health of the public and advance the nursing profession through the support of preventing programs(ANA2007). They promote the prevention of disease, illness, and disability in the community. They urge nurses to use strategies that encompass primary, secondary and tertiary levels of prevention. They believe that if those impacted by the health promotion strategies would likely have adhered to it if they were involved in its development(ANA2007).The health disparities among individuals and cultures would also impact teaching methodologies. The nurse would have to determine the willingness of the community to receive information being taught. The barriers would have to be identified regarding health promotion and disease prevention for providers to implement the most appropriate strategies.The national health problem of diabetes is on the rise that particularly affects Hispanics community in New Mexico. The problem and barriers have been identified. The structural violence that exists in this population needs to have well thought out strategies in the health promotion(Page-Reeves2013). The nurse will have to minimize the barriers and the first had to be eliminating the fear associated with receiving economic and health care assistance. The federal and state government has put in place resources to assist with healthier lifestyles. How does the nurse connect the community they serve to the resources available to them? The disease prevention can take place until the structural violence has been reduced. Once the community has the opportunity to the very basic needs met. the publichealth model for diabetes prevention and treatment has tended to continue to focus on gettingindividuals to change their behavior in terms of diet and levels of physical activity (DiabetesPrevention Program Research Group 2002). The nurse would need to concentrate their health promotions to address this for the entire family as this disease is a growing epidemic(Page-Reeves2013).
