Health Promotion and Illness Prevention

Holistic Role for Nurses

Health promotion and illness prevention is a holistic role for nurses. Typically community or public health nurses assume these roles; however, these roles are also important for nurses in acute care settings and are achieved through the promotion of health or management of illness by providing client education, often during a client’s stay and at discharge.

Read the following two articles to understand the roles of both acute care and community nurses.

Original Research: Implementation of an Early Mobility Program in an ICU.

Kulbok, P.A. Esther Thatcher, E. Eunhee Park, E., & Meszaros, P.S (2012). Evolving public health nursing roles: Focus on community participatory health promotion and prevention.

After reading the two articles, post the following:

What is the primary role and responsibilities of nurses in health promotion and illness prevention?

Are there any differences in the role and responsibilities if the nurse is working in
acute care or in the community?

Are there differences in process or outcomes for health promotion versus illness

What do you think is needed for nurses to be successful, either with health promotion or illness prevention
