As a public health nurse at a community clinic, your supervisor has asked you to research and examine childhood obesity in the community. You have been asked to create a visual concept map to be shared during a staff meeting to illustrate your findings on the cultural, socioeconomic, and behavioral factors that are contributing to childhood obesity as well as determining how the community clinic can promote healthy behaviors to address childhood obesity.
Create a visual concept map on child obesity and the factors influencing childhood obesity that:
Identifies a specific community to research and provides statistical data on childhood obesity in the selected community.
Analyzes the cultural, socioeconomic, and behavioral factors that influence childhood obesity.
Illustrates the connection between childhood obesity, behavior, culture, and socioeconomic status.
Describes how the promotion of health behaviors will help to reduce and ultimately eliminate childhood obesity.
Explains ways the public health nurse can support healthy behaviors while responding to the diverse needs in the community.
Provides stated ideas with professional language and attribution for credible sources with correct APA citation, spelling, and grammar in the visual concept map.
Identify the different theories and their implications on the aging process.
Define aging from biologic, sociologic, and psychological theories.
Develop nursing interventions based on the psychosocial issues and biologic changes associated with older adulthood.
Discuss several nursing implications for each of the major biologic, sociologic, and psychological theories of aging.
Based on your experience what health promotion strategies would you recommend to facilitate successful aging?
The paper is to be clear and concise and students will lose points for improper grammar, punctuation and misspelling.
The paper is to be formatted per current APA, be clear, concise and students will lose points for improper grammar, punctuation and misspelling.
The paper is to be 3-4 pages in length, excluding the title, abstract and references page.
Incorporate a minimum of 3 current (published within last five years) scholarly journal articles or primary legal sources (statutes, court opinions) within your work.

Complete and submit the assignment by 11:59 PM ET Sunday.
Late work policies, expectations regarding proper citations, acceptable means of responding to peer feedback, and other expectations are at the discretion of the instructor.
You can expect feedback from the instructor within 48 to 72 hours from the Sunday due date.
Your assignment will be graded according to the grading rubric.

Nursing Assignment Help Based on your program option (i.e., nurse practitioner, nurse educator, nurse administration), answer these questions in an initial post. (Use the online resources available to you in the APA Legal Formatting Resources and Online Legal Resources module to support your initial post.) Please cite all relevant legal and ethical sources throughout your post. Respond to two (2) classmates.
What are your legal responsibilities regarding the care of patients? Did you find any laws that outline or guide your responsibilities?
Did you find any proposed legislation (state or federal) that would impact your specialty? If so, please briefly explain the bill and the positive/negative impact it could make.
As you are forming a legal question/topic for the scholarly paper, what resources do you find helpful in locating information around your topic
This list of websites (and links to those sites) may helpful at throughout the course. These websites contain valuable information for use when preparing your work in this course. There are many other sites and sources “out there” which contain valid, reliable information, but as the elderly Crusader said to Indiana Jones, “Choose wisely.”
Agency for Health Care Policy
leadership management more detail below
How does a nurse, faced with a clinical practice problem, begin the process of quality improvement? Hopp and Rittenmeyer (2021) indicate that armed with data, nurses use the best available literature to guide practice guidelines. Have you looked at the policies on the unit you work? Who writes and reviews them? Are there references to the literature noted on the policy? Does your organization have a shared governance committee where nurses can present clinical practice problems and collaboratively work to improve patient care?
Your assignment this week will spark your curiosity about how nurses spur change. You are probably aware of items at work that you would like to review. Nurse leaders initiate quality improvement initiatives. This week, we are asking you to think about system change.
Directions: You will write a 1-3 page document in APA format addressing each point (1-4).
1. Your assignment this week asks that you describe a current clinical practice problem within a health care work environment. Please write a paragraph about the problem.
2. Once you identify the problem, you are asked to develop a PICO question to narrow and specify your problem. The PICO question will guide your search for the best available evidence. Here’s some helpful hints…
**Please review the Presentation on EBP Questions and Search Strategy (29:00) and the information found under the ‘Evidence-based practice’ tab of the course Library Guide for additional information on PICO question writing and levels of evidence. The Worksheet to assist in creating a PICO question and search strategy does not have to be submitted. This is only for assistance in creating the PICO.
How do you write an appropriate question? The PICO elements needed for a good research question are:
P- population: be specific about that population. As an example, if you are interested in hospitalized patients with COVID, be more specific about the specific population. Perhaps you are interested in hospitalized patients with COVID requiring respiratory support. How will you describe the population…adults with type I diabetes…5th grade boys…newborns in the NICU?
I- intervention- be specific about the intervention your population receives. You will be searching for the highest level of evidence in the literature. Questions to consider: Remember, you are not doing a research project. Instead, you are trying to find the best available evidence to support a change in practice? Another thing to think about – is this a nurse mediated intervention? Practice changes that involve other stakeholders (doctors, respiratory therapists, pharmacy techs) would require them to be at the table.
C-comparison Who is your comparison group? Did half the group in the study receive the intervention and the other half did not? The literature will tell you the answer.
O- outcome what outcome do you want to measure? Ex. adherence to hand hygiene policy
Here is an example of a well-written PICO question: What is the effectiveness of offering mandatory training sessions (I) compared to posting signs in the hospital (C) on improving adherence to the hospital hand hygiene protocol (O) among nurses in the ICU (P)?
3. Search for a minimum of three (maximum of five) research (scholarly) articles published within the last 10 years that relate to the chosen clinical practice. Note: Focus on higher levels of evidence whenever available. Please use APA format to reference each article at the end of your assignment.
4. Use the articles in step 3 (above) to summarize and synthesize the evidence as it relates to your question.
a. Summarizing your article means that you are articulating general findings in your own words for each of the three (3) articles cited on your reference list.
b. Synthesizing, then, is applying the findings to the clinical problem you have identified in step 1.
