Sential City and Covid 19

Description

C228 has two tasks: Task 1 is in Section 6.1 and is an assessment of Sentinel City. The tools for data collection can be found in Section 6.1 or your task directions within your Taskstream account. You will be engaging in approximately 25 hours of simulation (you do not need to keep track of time).   Task 2 is in Section 14.2 and discusses an international outbreak of one of the approved contagious diseases. An example of a specific outbreak is the 2014 Ohio Amish measles outbreak brought to the state from the Philippines. You are not reporting on a pandemic, but an outbreak which may be part of the pandemic.  The Bentonville simulation completion certificate will be included when submitting  Task 2. For assistance in task 1 and 2 organization and writing, a task writing guide (template) can be found in the course of study launch page under “course search”.   Below is Additional Task 1 support that I have put together. The information is in alignment with the cohort and task directions/rubric and many students have found the information and examples have assisted them in task navigation.   To complete the areas of Task 1, make sure you have collected the data on the four tools provided. The tools can be found in the COS 6.1 under the link to enter the simulation or in the Assessment section on the course home page, click the View Task link, then go to Task Overview and use the Supporting Documents link.  The tools can be found in those two areas under the Community Assessment link (Demographic, Public Safety, and Scavenger Hunt) and the Windshield Survey link. On the Windshield Survey only answer the questions that you can, approximately 50% of the tool.    Section A., of the task is called “action report” in instructions. This “action report” is a collection of the 12 photos assigned in the task directions.   The simulation collects the pictures in a Photo Journal.  You will visit each of the required 12 places that are required — see task 1 directions for list. Use the camera icon in SC and take a picture at each of the 12 individual sites, per the task directions. If there is signage make sure to get that in the picture, In the text box type in the name of the location if there is no signage in the photo.  Once you take the photo it will be saved in a Photo Journal.   Section B., you will need to summarize the information identified on each of the four tools. The tool names need to be identified in the task per the directions so using the task template mentioned above, summarize related tool information under the listed tool heading. You will be providing summarization of the data collected from the simulation tools to complete this area.    You do not have to compare the rates of SC to National numbers. Areas where statistics, data, or non-general information in-text citations will be done. For assistance on APA and in-text citations please contact the Writing Center, contact information is below.     Section B1., in this area your goal is to link health concerns/problems identified from the simulation to data you collected or identified. In other words, what causative factor(s) or information from charts under the tools, spinning “I’s” and/or your observations identify the health concern is a problem recognized from the simulation. Determinants are causes, related risk factors of health-related conditions or situations.   For example, maybe you will identify SC as having a possible health concerns with cardiovascular disease identified from community characteristics and data you identified along with the four assessments (e.g. prevalence of smokers, poverty, low cigarette tax, cultural acceptance, hospital admits/discharges, pharmacy mediations dispensed).    Another example maybe the health concern in SC related to pollution from the data indicated issues in the City Hall Water and Sanitation chart. Related issues to the health concern was observed with trash burning, rats and dogs in the streets, pollution floating, etc.   Analyze the collected data and charts in SC, using concepts of epidemiology and health determinants, identifying 3-4 health concerns from the collected information.  Section B1., is usually a couple paragraphs summary.   Overall, Section C., consists of using 3 of the SC health concerns/problems you identified in B1.     Section C1., In this section you identify your 3 top health problem you assessed for Sentinel City and state the Healthy People 2020 goal that addresses each of the 3 problems.  Look on the HP 2020 Topics A-Z website to find the HP topics/goals.  See the example below of what the HP 2020 Goal/objective will look like.  You will find it under the tab “overview”.  This HP 2020 goal/objective is what supports each of the 3 problems you identified. Click HERE to access the HP2020 topics or find HP2020 access in the task directions under “Web Links”   Basically, you will state something like this (using the screenshot from above): The first problem identified is a high incidence of poor oral health in Sentinel City. The Healthy People 2020 Goal for addressing oral health is to prevent and control oral and craniofacial diseases, condition, and injuries, and improve access to preventative services and dental care (Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 2019).     The second identified problem in Sentinel City is XXXX. The HP 2020 goal to address this issue is……(in-text citation). The third identified problem in Sentinel City is XXXX. The HP 2020 goal to address this issue is…… (in-text citation).   Section C2., you will then choose one of your previously selected 3 problems in C1.  In C2., after you have chosen one problem you will then go back on the bus and ride through SC to find resources that address that selected problem or refer to the Scavenger Hunt information.    Section C3., Go to the Primary Prevention Topic List in the task directions, choose one topic from the list that relates to the health concern resources listed in C2. This section can be two sentences…. The Primary Prevention topic I have chosen is ………….  This topic was selected as it relates to the resources identified in C2.     Section D., is your conclusion and you are to discuss how you will apply the assessment strategies learned from the simulation environment to assessment strategies in you can utilize in your community. Did this experience make you “think out of the box”, did it provide you with additional assessment skills to serve your clients or to identify resources for them, etc.?  It relates to you and your community/work area and not more information on the simulation.  This section is usually a couple of paragraphs.   Below is a brief mock example for Section D. Be sure you use this only as a brief example to understand what could be included: I have learned from using the assessment strategies and tools how to assess my own community to identify resources and areas requiring support…..etc. I have also learned through assessing a virtual community that critically analyzing data will assist to define problem areas in a community. Strategies that will be affective for me to assess my community include gathering data on various aspects of the community and county such as demographics, available resources for problem areas, and visually assessing my community using a windshield survey.   Regarding the referencing for Task 1 please contact the CWE, our APA resource should you have any questions regarding referencing. WGU Writing Center now has a helpline that you can call for assistance.  Here is the number: 1-877-435-7948.  Extension 2967.

The information is in alignment with the cohort and task directions/rubric and many students have found the information and examples have assisted them in task navigation.   B. DESCRIPTION OF OUTBREAK. You need to describe one specific outbreak of a disease selected from the task directions, Section A,  list identifying the outbreak from one country to another (from Country A to Country B), including each of the following: •  name of the disease •  the countries involved (link the outbreak from Country A to Country B) •  the date the outbreak was discovered •  the dates the disease reached each involved country   A general example of a specific outbreak is the 2014 Ohio Amish measles outbreak brought to the state from the Philippines.   (you can use this too). Once an outbreak is identified you can “Google” or “Google Scholar” to search for the information required in this section, using a reputable source.    B1. EPIDEMIOLOGICAL DETERMINANTS AND RISK FACTORS. What are epidemiological determinants related to the identified outbreak? A determinant is anything that increases disease frequency in a population.  Analyze the epidemiological determinants of the specific outbreak. What is indicator? Was it related to lack of immunizations, travel outside the US, etc.? Why is it important? What does it tell us?  Risk Factors and Transmission are both epidemiological determinants. However, you should discuss other determinants relevant for your outbreak here such as infectivity (how easily spread is it?), virulence (how deadly is it?), mode of transmission (Vector? Contact? Aerosol?), climate considerations (i.e. does the vector survive arid or cold temperatures?), antigenic stability (i.e. Influenza) and any other appropriate variable. Discuss any RISK FACTORS involved. Risk factors typically address the condition of the host (patient) and environment. Examples of risk factors would be age, occupation, immune-compromised status, unvaccinated status, lack of prior exposure to the disease, smoking, living in close quarters (i.e. military, prisons, and college dormitories), vector exposure, etc.   B2. ROUTE OF TRANSMISSION. Discuss the national and international ROUTE OF TRANSMISSION of the disease causing the outbreak. Discuss how the disease was spread geographically. Was air travel to blame? Migration? More local travel? Other? And then explain where it went over time.   B3. IMPACT ON COMMUNITY. This is a hypothetical situation (your thoughts and opinions) of a what would happen at a systems level if the disease outbreak, worst case scenario, occurred in your community. How do you see it affect the community, assume the worst-case scenario (include the functioning of schools, local government, businesses, hospitals)? Including how would an outbreak would affect the economy, schools, healthcare facilities, transportation.    For example, predict the effect of an outbreak on the FUNCTIONING of your city/county. You will want to address additional things like hospital overflow, transportation issues, economic productivity, etc.  The evaluator is looking for a “logical discussion” including what would be the effect on schools (would they need to close)? Would government offices need to close, etc.? Would the hospitals have the staff to care for an outbreak? Could they handle the individuals coming to the clinics or put others at risk? Would it burden or overtax the health system of the community, etc.?    B4. REPORTING PROTOCOL.   Explain the REPORTING PROTOCOL if an outbreak of the selected disease were to occur in your community. Often there is state legislation dictating the reporting protocol (chain of command) related of communicable disease.  You can “Google” the reporting protocol for your area and should find the chain of command. This task tip may help, as a community health nurse, who would you report a new case to? What does your Public Health Department, local and state level, indicate for reporting communicable disease? Think about who should be notified and how?  As stated above your state legislature should have laws for the reporting of communicable diseases when suspected or actual.   B5. PREVENTION STRATEGIES.   Discuss two strategies (e.g., patient education strategies, community education strategies) that you would recommend preventing an outbreak of the selected disease in your community.  Provide a discussion with explanation on how the strategies would prevent an outbreak. Why do you recommend these as prevention strategies? Perhaps avoiding the vectors, staying home when feeling ill, hand washing, covering mouth and nose when sneezing, information on vaccinations, and /or perhaps wearing a mask. Immunization clinics and/or incorporation of seasonal influenza vaccination movements at different levels, especially those who are at high risk. Does the community have a sufficient supply of anti-viral mediations, what could be used to treat the outbreak? Provide a discussion with explanation on how the strategies would prevent an outbreak. Why do you recommend these as prevention strategies?   C. BENTONVILLE ACTION REPORT. Instructions on how to save the Bentonville PDF completion certificate can be found in the course cohort. I have also attached PDF saving instructions. The completion report is from the Bentonville simulation in module 14. Use Google Chrome to do this simulation.     D.  SOURCES. This section will depend on resources used. Please contact the CWE, our APA resource should you have any questions regarding referencing. WGU Writing Center now has a helpline that you can call for assistance.  Here is the number: 1-877-435-7948.  Extension 2967.  Additionally, here is a link to the Writing Center’s APA Checklist.                            Task 1 C228 V3 Your Name Western Governors University  Date                           A. Sentinel City has made an update to their platform allowing for multiple pictures to be included in a Photo Journal. Save the Photo Journal as a PDF to your Desktop to be submitted with task 1. If you have already taken 12 individual PDF photos-these are also acceptable for submission with the task. Your APA Community Assessment paper includes sections B through D. B. Needs Assessment: Holistic, Comprehensive Assessment of the Sentinel City. Complete the section, as directed below.   Demographics (Refer to the Assessment tool: Demographics for the items/questions needed to be addressed in this sub-section)        Neighborhood Safety Assessment (Refer to the Assessment tool: Neighborhood Safety Inventory for the items/questions needed to be addressed in this sub-section) Scavenger Hunt (Refer to the Assessment tool; Scavenger Hunt for the items/questions needed to be addressed in this sub-section)     Windshield Survey (Refer to the Windshield Survey directions). This is a generic tool. Answer the questions you can through data and your own observations. Summarize your findings about the physical and social environment of Sentinel City. B1. Data Analysis: Interpretation of Data Link the health risks and needs evident in the data/information you collected from section B (4 assessment tools). In this area your goal is to link the health risks and needs evident in the data you collected.  For example, from charts under the tools, spinning/floating “I’s” and/or your observations.  Identify 4-5 health concerns that are significant to you as the nurse assessing the city. Interpret and analyze your observations coming from your OWN perspectives; utilizing the epidemiological variables that you collected in section B. Example: (As I completed my assessment, I went to the Better Health Clinic where I learned that teen pregnancy is a concern in Sentinel City. Through exploring and researching within the Better Health Clinic, I learned that just between the ages of 15 and 17, there were about 400 teen pregnancies………………………) Add additional epidemiological variables (contributing factors) to each identified health concern.  Maybe you have discovered SC as having a possible health concern with cardiovascular disease that you have identified from community characteristics and data you found along with the four assessments (e.g. prevalence of smokers, poverty, low cigarette tax, cultural acceptance, hospital admits/discharges, pharmacy medications dispensed). Analyze the collected data and charts in SC identifying 4-5 health concerns from the collected information.  C. Sentinel City Health Concerns Complete the section, as directed below.   C1. Three Problem Areas   Relate and discuss 3 health concerns identified in B1 with a related topic HP 2020 Goal/Objective. This should be written in narrative APA format. Health Concern 1                  HP 2020 Goal/Objective Health Concern 2                  HP 2020 Goal/Objective Health Concern 3                  HP 2020 Goal/Objective C2. Discussion of Community Resources Step 1 Select 1 health concern from the 3 listed in section C-1  Step 2 List community resources available within SC with whom you could effectively collaborate-to help improve this selected health concern. List as many actual or possible collaborative partners/resources from SC (no less than 2).           C3. Primary Prevention Topic From the Primary Prevention Topic list located in your Task Directions choose a Primary Prevention topic that relates to the SC Health Concern resources discussed in C-2. D. Application of Assessment Strategies/Tools between Simulation and My Community Reflect what you have learned from the simulation assessment strategies/tools (example: HP 2020, Windshield Survey, etc.) and discuss how you will apply these to your own community.    References Examples: SentinelU.
