This essay focuses on economic determinants on health.Interventions for primary and secondary (early detection) prevention, aiming to minimize the burden of diseases and associated risk factors.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW DIRECTIONS ATTACH IS A VIDEO AND FILE According to the NIDA, “Prevention programs aimed at general populations at key transition points, such as the transition to middle school, can produce beneficial effects even among high-risk families and children” (National Institute on Drug Abuse, 2003, p. 4). Identifying these key transition points is important as you develop programs for your local community. Can you think of a time when a prevention program may reach students before they engage in dangerous behaviors? Perhaps before prom? Or graduation? For this Assignment, review the media in this week’s Learning Resources.
Base on these resources, determine which of the NIDA prevention principles were address. How they “enhance(d) protective factors and reverse(d) or reduce(d) risk factors” (NIDA standards, 2003, p. 2). For this Assignment, you will complete a 1- to 2-page paper.
Review the media piece Saving lives at Maryville. Consider the excerpts from Preventing Drug Use Among Children and Adolescents. A Research-Base Guide for Parents, Educators, and Community Leaders. Explain how the NIDA prevention principles were use by Mike Gimble in this week’s media. Be specific, and provide examples from the media piece to support your answers.
Disease prevention, understood as specific, population-based and individual. Interventions for primary and secondary (early detection) prevention, aiming to minimize the burden of diseases and associated risk factors.
Primary prevention refers to actions aimed at avoiding the manifestation of a disease. (this may include actions to improve health through changing the impact of social and economic determinants on health. The provision of information on behavioral and medical health risks.
Nutritional and food supplementation; oral and dental hygiene education. And clinical preventive services such as immunization and vaccination of children. Adults and the elderly, as well as vaccination or post-exposure prophylaxis for people exposed to a communicable disease).
Secondary prevention deals with early detection when this improves the chances for positive health outcomes. (this comprises activities such as evidence-based screening programs. Early detection of diseases or for prevention of congenital malformations. And preventive drug therapies of proven effectiveness when administered at an early stage of the disease).
Capacity-building in other health care services, this is not the case for secondary prevention. Screening and early detection is of limited value (and may even be detrimental to the patient. If abnormalities cannot be promptly corrected or treated through services from other parts of the health care system. Moreover, a good system of primary health care with a registered population facilitate. The optimal organization and delivery of accessible population based screening programs and should be vigorously promote.
