Ø  Explore at least three types of health care providers.

Ø  What type of services does each health care provider provide (hospitals, nursing homes, home health care, MDs, APRNs).

Ø  Describe three types of healthcare users (private payers, public payers, and the uninsured).

Ø  Provide a listing of how each provider gets paid by users (insurance plans, self-pay, government agency pays).

Module 2-Discussion

Rural vs. Urban Ancillary Services

Health care services vary given a geographical location of an organization. All services may not be provided in one area; furthermore, patients who live in rural areas must often travel to obtain services. For example, according to Spasojevic, Vasilj, Hrabac, & Celik (2015), rural residents are more likely to travel more than 15 minutes to see their health facilities compared with urban residents. Based on the course readings and your own research, discuss/answer the following:

  1. What are ancillary services? (Provide 2 or 3 examples.)
  2. How do ancillary services offered in rural and urban areas differ?
  3. Regarding ancillary services, what are some disadvantages to consumers (patients) living in rural populated areas?
  4. What recommendations would you provide as a health care leader to lessen these disadvantages?

She says that none of the other nurses have listened to her about such a visit. As she asks you about this, she begins to cry and tells you that they have never been separated. You recall that the staff discussed their concern about this woman’s well-being during report that morning. They said that she has been eating very little and seems to be depressed.

1 postsRe: Topic 3 DQ 1

In the nineteenth century, health was described as the absence of disease.Because of the lack of sanitary conditions, diseases spread more widely.Sanitary conditions were better known in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and steps were taken to adequately control them, resulting in diseases that were more manageable. Vaccines were invented in the twentieth century, and the concept of health changed from cure to prevention. As the field of health promotion expanded, the term “health” came to mean a combination of factors such as physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being (Falkner, 2018). Today’s goals is to create a community of wellness in which health promotion and disease prevention take precedence over seeking careonce an illness has developed.We now realize that fitness and wellbeing go hand in hand with disease prevention. We may not always have control over our health, but we can make decisions to improve our well-being.

Promoting good health has existed for as long as there have been efforts to improve the public’s health. “The method of encouraging people to gain control over and improve their health is known as health promotion” (World Health Organization, 2019, para. 1).It shifts the emphasis away from human actions and toward a variety of social and environmental interventions.The nurse’s position in health promotion is critical, and it includes being an advocate, a provider of care/services, a care manager, an educator, and a researcher. The nurse is pushing reform to strengthen procedures in order to improve patient safety by using EBP to do so.
