“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity” (World Health Organization, 2005). This 1946 historical definition of health remains pertinent to this day, and it helps to guide not only our perception of health but also that of illness. For this week’s discussion, you should review the WHO’s definition of health and do an online search to see how others perceive the concept of health, then create your own definition of health. Consider that there are individuals who have physical abnormalities but do not feel “ill,” and those with no physical changes who yet report feeling “less than well.” How might these two statements affect the overall balance or well-being of an individual and their outlook on their total health? What is the role of the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) in terms of addressing the health of individuals and communities?

Include the following in your initial post:

 

  1. 1-   Discuss your own personal definition of health.
  2. 2-   How does your definition compare to the WHO’s definition of health?
  3. 3-   What do you see as the role of the APRN in addressing not only the health of individuals but that of the community?

Definition of Health

Question descriptionIn this assignment, you will research three definitions of health and apply one of those definitions to the following scenario.

Scenario

In a typical family in your community, one of the children has recently experienced an acute illness (such as pneumonia) and one of the grandparents has a chronic illness (such as heart disease or congestive heart failure).

Tasks:

From the nursing literature, identify three definitions of health. Generate a report in which you analyze the definitions and apply one version to the family described above.

In a 5- to 7-page paper, complete the following:

  • Analyze each definition in terms of context, population focus, and its relationship to the concept of health promotion.
  • Select one definition and how this would apply to the family described above. Would this help promote better health outcomes for the family?
  • Identify and explain at least five health promotion activities or behaviors you could recommend to a family such as the one described above. How might it help promote a healthier family outcome?

Support your findings with examples and scholarly references. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
