In June of 2018 the Health and Human Services Secretary approved the Healthy People 2030 framework which seeks to improve the health and well-being of people in the United States; this framework outlines the initiative, contribution, vision, mission and foundational principles of the past 5 decades of Healthy People: Healthy People 2030 Framework. Healthy People 2020 provides a list of health topics pertaining to the United States, and the World Health Organization (WHO) provides a list of possible international health topics. Website links for Healthy People 2020 and the WHO health topics lists are provided: Healthy People 2020 and the World Health Organization
As you write your NURS 3315 Final Course written assignment, consider the following:
Evidence-based practice, appropriate client education, and well-designed health promotion interventions which positively impact disease risk and lifestyle changes.
Effective, evidence-based interventions which requires clients to be at the center of the decision making process, and to be involved in all aspects of their health care.
Clients and/or patients require appropriate evidence-based information to make informed decisions regarding their health.
Any health information provided to a client and/or patient needs to be: based on the evidence; addressed the basic knowledge of the disease and/or disease process; an identified associated disease risk and address modifiable factors which outline possible lifestyle changes; and promoting health through health promotion interventions.
Healthy People 2020, the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO) seek to increase health promotion while offering information to promote a healthy lifestyle.  Healthy People 2020 seeks to evoke change at the national level while the United Nations and WHO seeks to impact change both globally and internationally.
