Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Role of Community and Public Health Nurses. It needs to be at least 500 words.
The article is pretty effective at convincing one of the merits of C/PHN and community participation in outbreak control. However, one of the biggest faults that one can associate with it is the fact that it draws from only one case to support its stand. While a true case might strengthen the point being argued in the article, only one instance cannot be considered as conclusive or even convincing evidence of any fact. Therefore, the authors would have done well to cite other such cases to support their viewpoint.
The article is pretty meticulous in the coverage of the functions of C/PHNs during an outbreak. It mentions their skills that are of utility, their flaws, precautions that need be taken, their responsibility as well as their place in the bigger picture. It also points out flaws in state regulations that exacerbate problems. However, an attempt to compare these to a system where all these flaws have been dealt with and the system functions smoothly (whether in the same country or elsewhere), would have made the concept seem far less utopian.
A mention of cases where the involvement of C/PHNs had actually helped control an outbreak without any significant damage to health and life would have made a far stronger case than one where their forced non-involvement made things worse.
Examining the relevance of the article to the community and public health nursing practice, one finds that it is only of moderate utility. While it does, in many instances help a C/PHN understand their responsibility and the importance of their role in outbreak prevention and control, it does not mention how their involvement can be increased to an optimum level. It also fails to explain how the existing system could be modified to make better use of the skills possessed by C/PHNs.
