Peer-reviewed scholarly resources should be no more than 5 years old. Example: professional, peer-reviewed publications or reports from resources such as CDC, IOM, AACN, etc. These should be written by professionals and scholars in the field. Websites are only scholarly if written by professionals and experts in the area. Wikipedia is not a scholarly source, for example. Websites such as Medscape, CDC, and TIGER Initiative are examples of scholarly sources. Assignment: Discuss how an advanced practice nurse can integrate the Health Promotion Model in meeting the health care needs of a family. Be specific. See sample documentation below: Health promotion and disease prevention should be a priority of all individuals in the nursing profession. The Health Promotion Model (HPM) reveals characteristics influencing the health behaviors of individuals. Pender’s health promotion model is commonly utilized to reveal and change unhealthy behaviors and explores specific components and relationships that contribute to overall health. Predicting elements of the HPM include perceived benefits and barriers, self-efficacy, emotions regarding behavior, and situational influences (Chen & Hsieh, 2021). According to Cardoso et al. (2021), the HPM originated as a proposition to incorporate nursing theories with behavioral sciences and assists with the foundation for nursing practice. In addition, the HPM serves as a guide to construct diagnoses, develop interventions, and establish outcomes. Domains of health promotion encompass nutritional habits, physical exercise, stress management, spirituality, interpersonal relationships, health accountability. Perception of one’s advantage​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‌‍‍​ of health behaviors and self-efficacy has been evidenced to increase commitment to the behavior in addition to diminishing perceived barriers (Habibzadeh et al., 2021). A specific population that would benefit from use of the HPM is the aging population. The older population continues to increase worldwide based on a variety of factors and by the year 2050 is expected to reach two billion (Liljas et al., 2017). Families often struggle with their aging family members declining health and cognition while attempting to balance work and raising their own families. The elderly population often feel a sense of isolation and may begin to withdraw which leads to further decline. Offering promotional health activities that are community-based can provide several benefits including improvement of physical health and function, feelings of accomplishment, a sense of spiritual satisfaction, and improved mental well-being. Positive effects on older adults physical and mental health are achieved in part by receiving social support through these health promotional activities. In addition, this support improves the likelihood of continued involvement in these activities. The greatest influence for participation in health promotion activities for the older population includes perceived benefit (Chen & Hsieh, 2021). Nurses are gifted with the responsibility of health promotion for the aging population, and this can be done in a variety of ways. To accomplish this task, the nurse needs to be educated on the aging process including both physiological and pathological changes that occur. The nursing role should include enabling and empowering the individual’s independence and autonomy, improving self-care and self-esteem, and encouraging social activities with the goal of improving overall quality of life (Cardoso et al.,​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‌‍‍​ 2021).
