Preventing use of tobacco and helping those who utilize it to stop can have continuing benefits for people and for the public health in general. Advanced practice nurses can engage in activism and prevent Big Tobacco from further disabling the health of many communities by developing and implementing tobacco management programs to assist to reduce or prevent the use of tobacco. These programs can make use of taxation, mass-media campaigns, restrictions and easily accessible and effective behavioral analysis and tobacco ending medications. The programs can provide services to different target audiences, including young individuals, people with co morbid health issues, those of different socioeconomic status and ethnicities, and women (Diem & Moyer, 2015). A comprehensive approach to tobacco management results in changes that affect the whole population, from the person to the community level, by addressing the social, political economic, cultural and environmental aspects that sustain the using and not using of tobacco. 

Another way that advanced practice nurses can engage in activism and prevent Big Tobacco from further disabling the health of many communities is through the use of Evidence-based best practices for tobacco control (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2014). Programs for tobacco control reduce use of tobacco at the populace level by building tobacco-free outdoor and indoor areas, limiting the access of young people to tobacco products, restricting tobacco marketing, having continuous counter marketing campaigns, increasing the price of tobacco products, and offering easily available tobacco termination services and products.

 Running head: THE ROLE OF HEALTH ACTIVISM BY NURSES IN CONTROLLING TOBACCO USE Carlos Ortiz Florida National University Prof. Crevecoeur 11/13/2017 THE ROLE OF HEALTH ACTIVISM BY NURSES IN CONTROLLING TOBACCO USE Practicing nurses can engage in health activism as form of communication to empower communities to mitigate the devastating health effects evident in many health facilities. One way in which this can be achieved is through nurses becoming active members in coalition groups that campaign against tobacco use. They can then use their healthcare experience to craft attention-drawing advertisements to be broadcasted in mass media and social media on why the masses need to avoid tobacco use ( Hamilton ,2014). They can also design effective posters to be displayed in health facilities and other public places highlighting the steps a tobacco user can take to quit the practice. Further, such campaign groups can organize public presentations in public gatherings, schools, churches and other learning institutions to sensitize the public on the dangers of using tobacco in its various forms and ways of quitting when even addicted. In the political arena, practicing nurses can engage legislatures while seeking office and present their proposals on what they could like to be passed into law in the quest to mitigate negative effects of tobacco use. In addition, they can utilize their advocacy abilities to push for policy changes by the various policy makers including as the total retail outlets, increasing the number and area of ‘no smoking zones’ and pushing for exponential escalation of tobacco taxes. The change in policy may also seek to limit the advertisement of tobacco products in mass media while making it a condition to explicitly display warning signs on the packets containing the products. Moreover, the nursing activism groups can involve people who have quit tobacco use to testify to the public spreading the message of the need to end tobacco use (Smith,,2015). References Hamilton, N. A. (2014). American social leaders and activists. Infobase Publishing. Smith, S. A. (2015). The Pernicious Weed: Anti‐Tobacco Sentiments in Periodical Literature, 1800–1870.

You’ve had a chance to review the “start here” sequence that gives an overview of the course design. You also had an opportunity to review the course learning outcomes. Take a moment and review these outcomes. Which outcomes do you have familiarity with already? What previous knowledge do you have that you bring with you into this course? What professional experience connects with the learning outcomes? 

There’s no need to answer every question or address each learning outcome. Rather, focus on one question and the learning outcome(s) that stand out to you the most. In your post, introduce yourself and let your peers know about your professional experience in no more than one sentence, e.g., “I’m Dr. Estee Beck, and I have 12-years experience with teaching undergraduate and graduate students.” 
Learning Outcomes Recall basic conventions for common professional and technical documents when prompted in a workplace setting
Identify distinctions of the varying information needs of primary and secondary audiences, document design principles, and conventional genres Implement technical writing standards to professional and technical documents in order to meet and/or exceed workplace norms Analyze professional writing styles in professional and technical documentation Evaluate professional and technical documents for readability effectiveness in order to approve or revise documents for readers in workplace settings

Within the Grand Canyon University (GCU) Library there are multiple resources available to access scholarly journal articles. In the field of nursing and health sciences two scholarly databases include CINAHL Complete and OVID Nursing Essential Collection (Grand Canyon University [GCU], n.d.). CINAHL Complete is a database geared towards nurses and other health care providers and covers nursing specialties, nutrition, and speech language pathology. It contains the full text for more than 1,300 journal titles, many of which are peer reviewed (GCU, n.d.). OVID Nursing Essential Collection contains 112 full text journal titles along with Lippincott, Williams, & Wilkins Nursing & Health Professions Premier Collection which provides access to 64 journal titles (GCU Library, n.d.). Within the GCU Library these are the two scholarly databases I use the most. These databases are better to use than an internet search or Google Scholar because they contain articles that are often from peer reviewed journals that can be trusted. Journal articles found through these databases include an author or authors, dated material which allows for a search of current information, and most contain facts backed by evidence that is cited and often contain statistical data (Grand Canyon University [GCU] Library, n.d.). Information from website searches may be biased, out of date, or lack concrete evidence to back up claims or opinions. By using information from one of the GCU Library scholarly databases I can be sure that the information I am using is trustworthy.

What are social determinants of health?  Explain how social determinants of health contribute to the development of disease.  Describe the fundamental idea that the communicable disease chain model is designed to represent. Give an example of the steps a nurse can take to break the link within the communicable disease chain.

Dorothy Johnson

Johnson viewed health as efficient and effective functioning of the system, and as behavioral system balance and stability. Behavioral system balance and stability are demonstrated by observed behavior that is purposeful, orderly, and predictable. Consider a clinical-practice situation that demonstrates Johnson’s model of health. How can the nurse support this theory to return the patient to balance and stability?

Learning styles represent the different approaches to learning based on preferences, weaknesses, and strengths. For learners to best achieve the desired educational outcome, learning styles must be considered when creating a plan. Complete “The VARK Questionnaire,” located on the VARK website, and then complete the following: Click “OK” to receive your questionnaire scores. Once you have determined your preferred learning style, review the corresponding link to view your learning preference. Review the other learning styles: visual, aural, read/write, kinesthetic, and multimodal (listed on the VARK Questionnaire Results page). Compare your current preferred learning strategies to the identified strategies for your preferred learning style. Examine how awareness of learning styles has influenced your perceptions of teaching and learning.

In a paper (750-1,000 words), summarize your analysis of this exercise and discuss the overall value of learning styles. Include the following: Provide a summary of your learning style according the VARK questionnaire. Describe your preferred learning strategies. Compare your current preferred learning strategies to the identified strategies for your preferred learning style. Describe how individual learning styles affect the degree to which a learner can understand or perform educational activities. Discuss the importance of an educator identifying individual learning styles and preferences when working with learners. Discuss why understanding the learning styles of individuals participating in health promotion is important to achieving the desired outcome. How do learning styles ultimately affect the possibility for a behavioral change? How would different learning styles be accommodated in health promotion?
