School of Nursing QEP Writing Prompts
NUR 1211L (Medical-Surgical Nursing Clinical)

Health promotion is the act of empowering clients to take control over and achieve their optimal
level of health. Utilizing the topics listed below and evidence-based practice, you will write a
scholarly paper on health promotion including the following:

• Introduction to the topic (select one of the topics below)
• Description of the disease process (topic) selected
• Implement 4 health promotion measures involved in the prevention and care of

client with the disease process (topic) selected from the textbook, nursing journal
articles, and evidence-based practice, including complementary therapies.

• Analyze how health promotion can improve the client’s overall health and avoid
complications (include modifiable and non-modifiable factors such as age,
gender, ethnicity, and lifestyle). Be sure to compare/contrast what happens to
patients if they implement health promotion strategies and what could happen if
these activities are not implemented.

• Reflection on what you learned from the assignment and how it will impact your
practice in the future

Mobility involves physical movement of the body, and its existence dictates the level of

independence and freedom a person holds. Mobility is a spectrum, with full mobility lying on

one end, immobility on the other, and varying degrees of mobility lying somewhere in between.

Mobility “requires sufficient muscle strength and energy, along with adequate skeletal stability,

joint function, and neuromuscular synchronization” (Crawford & Harris, 2016. p. 40). Disturbances in

mobility are caused by postural and muscular abnormalities, central nervous system damage, and

trauma to the musculoskeletal and nervous system (Potter et al., 2017). Acute or chronic pain are

also deterrents. Additionally, long periods of immobility can negatively affect the body systems

and may cause impaired tissue perfusion, deconditioning of the muscles, orthostatic hypotension,

thrombus formation, pneumonia, pressure ulcers, contractures, constipation, and psychosocial

complications amongst other health issues (Crawford & Harris, 2016). To this end, improving

and preserving the degree of mobility that a person possesses is essential to their well-being. This

fact especially rings true in the nursing home setting where the preservation of mobility can have

a huge impact on a patient’s quality of life and autonomy. Therefore, to prevent decline,

evidence-based practice and interventions must be used to resolve the causative factors of the

patient’s mobility impairment.

Patient Description

been a resident there for 10 months. Her current medical diagnoses include Parkinson’s disease,

scoliosis, anxiety, major depressive disorder, arthritis, ischemic stroke, and dementia. These

Hypertension is one of the most common cardiovascular conditions in the United

States and worldwide. So severe is this disease that it may result in premature death, stroke,

chronic kidney failure, coronary artery disease, and myocardial infarction if untreated.

Statistics indicate that 25% of adults in western nations are hypertensive (Oparil et al., 2018).

However, most of them are unaware of having this problem. Hypertension refers to elevated

blood pressure levels. Current criteria for diagnosing hypertension include having systolic

blood pressure readings of more than 130mmHg and diastolic blood pressures of higher than

80mmHg at more than two reproducible measurements. Additionally, systolic blood

pressures of
