Project #55970 - social determinants


This paper is about understanding health and how to improve health. The conditions or experiences in which we live our lives, affect our health. These conditions, also known as Social Determinants of Health (DoH), are more important than medical treatments or lifestyle choices in shaping our health.   For example, how long we will live, whether or not we will develop chronic diseases, or how we raise our children. It is important for the nurse to understand the health of an individual in a broad way and in the context of these social determinants.  Nurses provide interventions to help improve a patient’s DoH, thus aiding in improving their health. 




Synopsis: Provide an overview of the health of a selected family from the Canadian Neighbourhood, identify and explain how 3 DoH are negatively affecting the family, and identify and explain how 2 areas of health promotion would benefit the family
