Phase 5: Developing a Care Plan

You are now in Phase 5 of the Capstone project. Last week, you conducted a risk assessment to identify the health risks faced by the aggregate you selected.

This week, begin working on a comprehensive care plan for the aggregate

.

The care plan should propose a nursing diagnosis for the aggregate and include strategies to tackle the major health risks identified during the risk assessment.

In addition, it should include a disaster management plan with the following components:

  • List of disasters that might affect your aggregate (take into consideration the geographical location of the aggregate, past history, etc.)
  • Strategies for handling at least two disasters from the list
  • Recommendation for a disaster supplies kit

Your comprehensive care plan should be in a 4- to 5-page Microsoft Word document. Be sure to apply Mobilize, Assess, Plan, Implement, Track (MAP-IT) in your assessment process.

Phase 3: Analyzing the aggregate strengths and weaknesses

The strengths of the aggregate and the community living there are that despite previously being among the least healthiest cities, the aggregate has been making significant efforts to improve its health through healthy schools and healthy community initiatives. One of the efforts is Spartanburg’s Way to Wellville that have created a culture of health where people are ready to work together to promote health for all (Upstate Biz SC, 2016). The city and the entire Spartanburg County has worked towards rallying community partners towards the achievement of a common objective of wellness. These attempts have worked well in significantly reducing teen pregnancy, increased affordable houses, increased education opportunities, and access to medical facilities and healthful meals. Other strengths include enhanced access to healthcare and social amenities for low-income earners and citizens of the county who cannot afford insurance policies and other creative tactics to integrate behavioral wellness practices into the aggregate. Comment by dorothy bybee: Where is the introduction?

The strengths of the city and the community living in the aggregate are that it faces the health problems of high rates of children and child obesity, a high number of people living with high blood pressure and diabetes, and risk of suffering from heart attack. The county also has high poverty rates, elevated levels of air pollution, inadequate education facilities, poor living conditions along with other health problems. Comment by dorothy bybee: Do you mean weaknesses?

Applying MAP-IT to this assessment, the first step is to mobilize, and there are already some active partners willing improve the health conditions of the city. The next step is assessing the needs of the aggregate, which from the above weaknesses include making lifestyle modifications and improving the wellness conditions. The partners then plan on the best way to make lifestyle changes and reduce the above lifestyle related diseases. The last step will be to track the progress by collecting data to determine if the rates of the diseases have reduced. Comment by dorothy bybee: The only element to discuss is A for assessment.

Selecting the Aggregate

The selected aggregate for this capstone project is in Spartanburg County in the state of South Carolina. It is the twelfth largest in the state in terms of population. The city is located on the latitude 340, 93’ N and longitude 810 99’ W.

The formal boundaries of the Spartanburg, SC encompass a land area of 19.77 square miles and 0.11 square miles of water (SC HomeTownLocator, 2016).

As at July 1, 2016 the population of Spartanburg was 38,047. In comparison to other cities, Spartanburg ranks in the upper quartile for population density and diversity index.

The city was formed in 1785 and given the name after a local militia that existed during the revolutionary war. The incorporation of the city took place in 1831 and nicknamed the “Hub City” because it had several railroads that formed wheel hubs.

The first reason for selecting Spartanburg as an aggregate, is that the city is among one of the least healthy cities, according to USA Today. Some of the statistics include; the physical health index is 71.9, 30 percent of the residents are obese, 36.3 percent of them have high blood pressure, 13.7 percent live with diabetes , 6 percent have suffered a heart attack and the city has a poverty rate of 20 percent (Frohlich & Hess, 2014). More than 30 percent of the interviewed residents said that they could not perform age appropriate activities due to their health. In addition, less than 48 percent of the population engages in regular exercises and 27.5 percent are smokers. The second reason for selecting this aggregate is that the city only has three hospitals with a population of almost 40,000 and requires more health interventions.

The selected aggregate for this project is the city of Spartanburg in South Carolina. The formation of this city took place in 1785 and is named after a local militia that used to operate during the revolutionary war. The incorporation of the city took place in 1831 and was nicknamed the “Hub City” because it had several railroads that formed wheel hubs. The rationale for selecting this city is that it was named one of USA Today’s least healthy cities in the country. Most of the residents are obese, have suffered a heart attacks, or living in poverty.

MAP-IT is a tool for implementing the Healthy People 2020 in the community. The tool helps to mobilize partners, evaluating the inadequacies of your community, formulating and executing a plan to reach the Healthy People 2020 goals and analyzing the improvement of the population (ODPHP, 2014). I will mobilize health organizations to form a group to improve the health of the people and then assess the specific health needs of the community. The partners will then plan on the most appropriate approach to meet the aggregate’s health needs and implement them according to the identified plan. The last step will be to track whether the implemented plan has met the identified needs and improved the health of the aggregate.

The city of Spartanburg is largely served by Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System (SRHS), which is a not-for-profit health care system with a 588-bed teaching and research hospital and other small hospitals. SRHS meets, supports and advocates evidence-based practice by providing cost-effective and patient-centered care and treatment services (Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, 2017). SRHS collaborates with other hospitals and medical centers in offering these services and make health services accessible to all city residents.

The city of Spartanburg has a population of 37,375; 16,610 males and 20,631 females. The city has 17,971 housing units for both owner and renter occupied. The median age of the city residents is 37.1 years. The city residents have a median household income of $33,600. The majority of the residents are below the age of 65 years (Esri, 2015).
