The Promise

Explore what C. Wright Mills meant by “Sociological Imagination.” (Mills, C. W. (1959). The promise of sociology.
Demonstrate your understanding of this concept by selecting an example of a “private trouble” (from the readings, your own experience, or elsewhere). How are personal troubles different from public issues? Explain how if a personal trouble becomes a public issue, why it may reflect a structural problem in society. Provide an example in your answer.

Methodology of natural philosophers

Use the attached pdf to answer the prompt.
Prompt: What intellectual errors did he (and Bacon) imagine themselves to be pushing back against? How does Offray de La Mattrie put this method into practice? Based on your reading of Man, A Machine, what advantages do you see to this method? What disadvantages? Are there instances where he seems to be imposing his own preconceptions on his observations rather than rigorously following his own methodological demands?

post 1

A societal factor that is affecting nursing and patient education curriculums is the rapid technological advances happening all over the world. As discussed by Meetoo, Rylance & Abuhaimid (2018) the technological innovation of mobile health has the potential to change healthcare in the clinical setting and non-clinical setting. It could enhance patient education, prevent disease, improve diagnosis and research-based treatment, reduce healthcare costs, and enable patients to manage long-term conditions. This article discusses the benefits of apps, digital devices, wearable sensors, monitoring devices, implantable sensors, and lab-on-a-chip. Although mobile health opportunities can benefit society there are large informational gaps regarding the long-term effects, acceptability, costs, and risks. Due to this, there is a significant need to continue research to evaluate the factors needed to standardize the implementation of mobile health into healthcare while maintaining the rights of the individuals. Due to the increasing availability of these new technological advancements, it is important that nursing curriculum and patient education evolve to educate on how to use new healthcare technology.

I chose this article because technology is rapidly advancing, and many people are falling behind and do not understand how to use modern technology making it difficult to implement widespread. These advancements can positively impact patient care and education. The adaption of these technology is inevitable and therefore needs to be discussed and incorporated into the nursing curriculum and patient education fields. We are already using modern technology in nursing school curriculum, making online programs more accessible to students and online simulation courses as part of the curriculum. In addition to using these technologies, it is important to teach nursing students about new healthcare technology so they are familiar with new practices that are offered to patients and can therefore help to teach them and create new innovative ways of providing effective patient care.


Communication between a patient and nurse is an important relationship to provide quality and safe care. A societal factor, that can affect this communication, is when a patient has limited English skills. According to Squires (2018), these patients are identified as limited English proficiency (LEP) and this lack of English skills can impact patient outcomes and healthcare delivery. Patients with LEP change the way nurses provide care and present patient education and a bond is needed to maintain the practice standards and improve outcomes.

As a lactation consultant, encouraging and supporting breastfeeding skills requires effective communication for all patients to be successful in their breastfeeding experience. The study from Communication Barrier in Health Care Setting as Perceived by Nurses and Patient (Sethi & Rani, 2017) describes results than can be helpful in establishing an effective nurse-patient communication. This article was chosen because of the reliable source, applicable timeframe, and research information. The cross sectional, descriptive study was conducted on 50 nurses and 50 patients which identified that spoken language and cultural differences was a communication barrier for the nurse and patient. Improvement in education and training can help nurses communicate with patients that maintain good interpersonal relationships and safe clinical practice.

Calkins, Lucy.  Raising Lifelong Learners: A Parent’s Guide.  Reading: Addison-Wesley
        Longman.  1997.  Print.

Lucy Calkins is a noted teacher and researcher in reading and writing. Her book is a guide for parents, helping them to work with their children’s schools to create a positive learning environment and a lifelong love of learning in their children.  Topics covered include fostering learning and curiosity in mathematics, science, social studies, reading, and writing.  Calkins work also offers advice on school curriculum and testing. By providing specific examples of parental involvement, this book will help support my assertion that parents need to play a strong role in their children’s education.

Defending Your Policy Proposal

Submit a video presentation summary of the policy proposal you created from last week’s Discussion. Be sure to incorporate feedback from your colleagues. Make sure that your summary presentation provides a solid rationale for the passage of your policy, using reputable sources from experts in the field. This should be a simulation of a summary presentation you would make to “real-world” policy leaders, so make sure you are succinct and informative. You can include any visual aids that you think help your presentation.

Your video should be 45 minutes and no more than 6 minutes

sport physical

Topic: Sports Physicals

In the sports medicine field, the sports physical exam is known as a preparticipation physical examination (PPE). The exam helps determine whether it is safe for you to participate in a certain sport. Most states actually require that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season. But even if a sports physical is not required, doctors still highly recommend getting one.

Case Study
The administration of the local critical access hospital has asked the practitioner to organize a community service program to conduct sports physicals for local junior high and high school athletes at no cost to the student. The practitioner has the use of the usual physician office space or the facilitys large meeting space and will recruit physicians, nurse practitioners, nursing staff, and medical technicians to conduct the sports physicals. Based on a survey of nearby school districts, the administration expects to serve 100 to 150 student athletes over the 2 days the physicals will be offered.

Case Questions

Which format would most effectively serve the needs of the students in this program? Include consideration of the space chosen for conducting the program.
Which space would be most appropriate to use for the program and why?
What are the drawbacks to the assembly-line format?
Which physical examination focus points could the nursing staff and medical technicians be assigned to complete?
When the practitioner is preparing to advertise the program being offered, the local newspaper asks the practitioner to identify three of the main objectives of the sports physicals for an article. How would the practitioner respond?
