Explore how determinants of health such as poverty, behavior, education, and income are related.

 

Within this activity, you will explore how determinants of health such as poverty, behavior, education, and

income are related. One common element underlies poor health: poverty. Money is required to purchase

the essentials of health such as food, clothing, shelter, clean water, education, and access to preventative

health services. Each day in nursing, you are faced with persons from varying economic, social, and

cultural backgrounds. In addition to varying backgrounds, you will also experience differing patient values

and preferences related to their individual health and behavior. Caring for the vulnerable, at-risk, and

aging populations is an essential competency for nursing. Therefore, we need to explore the

interrelationships of socio-cultural influences, behavioral influences, as well as economic and non-

economic barriers to healthcare to improve our knowledge. In doing so, we will be able to plan specific

interventions designed to help achieve healthier outcomes. You will have the opportunity to examine

poverty, behavior, and other determinants of health in Sentinel City®. As providers of care, BSN nurses

need to understand how these are related and impact the health of our patients.
