P3: Describe current patterns of ill-health and how they are monitored

There are many different ways in which we could describe health; some people describe health as being without any illness or disease, whereas the World Health Organization would say that health is being physically, mentally and spiritually healthy. The health profile of England is planned for the use of public service professionals and officials working at national, regional and local levels. This document assists people working within the local community who are in a position to apply influence over the planning, commissioning, procurement and delivery of programmes that will support health improvement. http://www.dh.gov.uk/prod_consum_dh/groups/dh_digitalassets/documents/digitalasset/dh_114938.pdf
The first Health Profile of England was published in October 2006, then it was update in 2007 and 2008 and now updated for 2009. The Health Profile of England is one of a family of ‘Health Profile’ products. Local and Regional Health Profiles are produced and published by the Association of Public Health Observatories. The reason why these health products are here is because they provide collection of local, regional and national date; which can be used in combination by health planners, in order for them to understand their local health situation. The role of the organisations produces how the reports may be used both nationally and locally. This is because they identify the health needs of the population, develop programmes to reduce risk and screen for disease early on and also they promote the health of the population.
The report shows recent improvements in a number of serious areas such as increasing life expectancy, which is now at its highest ever level.…...

Gordon's Functional Health Patterns

...Family Health Assessment Grand Canyon University: NRS-429V May 21, 2013 Gordon’s functional health patterns has been used since the late 1980s and serves as a guide for nurses in the nursing process. It was created by Marjory Gordon to help provide a framework to aide in the promotion of family health (“Gordon’s functional health, 2013”). Gordon’s functional health patterns consists of 11 categories that help nurses determine how each individual functions. An interview was conducted on a Caucasian family consisting of 4 individuals to determine their patterns of behavior. The family of four consisted of a 56 year old father, 54 year old mother, 21 year old son, and a 19 year old daughter. The father is currently employed by the United States Army where he has served his country for more than 20 years. The mother is a stay at home mom/wife. This couple has been married for 35 years. Both the son and the daughter attend the University of Texas at El Paso and currently live at home with their parents while attending school. When the family was asked about their overall health perception/health management they all agreed that they are in pretty good health. The father is an active military member and states that a healthy lifestyle is adamant for survival. No one in the family takes medications on a daily basis and they all rate their overall health as “good”. When the family was asked about their eating habits the children seemed to have a different style of eating......

...Gordon's Functional Health Patterns: Family Assessment With the various detailed questions related to the health perception, M. Houston perceives her level of health as generally healthy, but with numerous unhealthy patterns. With no history of colds/flu over the last few years, she denies ever taking flu vaccines, nor has her health ever been the cause for lost work hours. A smoker of at least 33 years, she currently reports smoking approximately 10 cigarettes per day, a significantly amount less compared to previous years. Physician recommendations have been to stop smoking, but she reports this as, "not being easy but I never really tried to stop" (personal communication, Aside from the extensive smoking history, there were other health related entities to take into consideration. Weight management is a health concern where much focus was given. When obtaining information about the things that are most important for her health, maintaining a healthy weight was given highest priority second was blood pressure and cholesterol control. This was interesting because the family has a significant history for heart disease, and hypertension, both of which medications are being prescribed for. However, blood pressure and cholesterol control was not given as much priority as weight management. Since years of elementary school, teachers have instructed their students on the importance of a good night’s rest. Somehow as adults we often forget these basic principles instilled......

In an effective budget system: * Managerial responsibilities are clearly defined – in particular the responsibility to adhere to their budgets * Individual budgets lay down a plan of action * Performance is monitored against the budget * Corrective action is taken if results differ significantly from the budget * Departures from budgets are permitted only after approval from senior management * Unaccounted for variances are investigated In 2011, Dave’s Cars budgeted their income at £180, budgeted their expenditure at £120 and budgeted their profit at £60.

P3 M2 D1 Patterns and Trends in Health and Ilness Among Diffrent Social Groups

...P3 Explain patterns and trends in health and illness among different social groupings Gender Men and women have different levels of risks of getting mental illnesses such as alcohol dependency. This is “more than twice as high in men than women. In developed countries, approximately 1 in 5 men and 1 in 12 women develop alcohol dependence during their lives” WHO 2015. This clearly shows that men and women have different risks when it comes to health and illness. Men are also twice as likely to have personality disorders, but women are more likely to have anxiety and depression than men are. Women have more accounts of sexual harassment and rape and this has a knock on effect to the amount of people with depression. Social class Different social classes have different levels of financial stability, which is also directly linked to the health care that is available and the housing and area in which they live. People in the lower class have higher levels of illness and bad health, as they cannot afford private healthcare so would then have to wait for appointments and go to public hospitals where they may be very busy and have a low amount of appointments available. Also people from the lower class may not be eating as well as others as they are on a strict budget this means they may be missing certain vitamins and minerals from their diet. Eating cheap microwave meals and processed food is not as good as eating fresh meals and organic fruit and vegetables. Table –......

(D1) Evaluate the Influence of Government on Factors That Contribute to the Current Patterns of Health and Illness in the Uk

...Evaluate the influence of government on factors that contribute to the current patterns of health and illness in the UK – Over the course of the last 50 years in the UK the government (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland) have made a great effort in order to improve the overall health of the general population in the UK. This has been achieved through the use of making the general population more aware of the dangers to their health and what they are along with they can do in order to improve it, thereby making better informed decisions in regards to their health when it comes to things such as diet, road safety (driving), exercise, smoking and education. The greatest influence that the government has had on the population in general on patterns of health over the last 50 years has been to increase the awareness on the negative effects smoking can have on a person’s health. The ill effects of smoking were originally discovered in 1961 and from that point onwards the government have worked continuously in order to stop people from smoking in order to prevent individuals from dying. The first government initiative was put into place in 1971 which led to manufactures agreeing to display on their packaging compulsory anti-smoking adverts, such as “smoking kills”. This new initiative made a significant impact on raising people’s awareness in the UK about the damaging effects smoking can cause to their health. Adverts promoting smoking were officially band in......

Ill Health

...There are many different ways in which individual’s quality of life can be affected by ill-health. In this assignment I will be discussing how cystic fibrosis and obesity affects the health and lifestyle of the person with the illnesses. What is cystic fibrosis? Cystic fibrosis is an example of ill health, as it is the UK’s most common, life threatening disorder. It is a genetic disorder that is caused by ‘an inherited disease caused by a faulty gene. In the UK, 2.3 million people carry the faulty gene and when two people that are carriers of the gene, there is a 1 in 4 chance in every pregnancy that their child will be born with cystic fibrosis. This gene controls the movement of salt and water in and out of your cells, so the lungs and digestive system become clogged with mucus, making it hard to breathe and digest food.’ This faulty gene causes a variety of symptoms for the person with the disorder, some of these symptoms include: a persistent cough, poor weight gain and recurring chest and lung infections. The cells most seriously affected are the lung cells, this is because the over production of mucus clogs the airways of the lungs and increases the risk of infection due to the amount of bacteria that can reproduce which may lead to lung and heart failure. Cystic fibrosis is a disorder that is getting more treatable over the years and with newfound technology and medication has meant that ’life expectancy for children born and diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) in......

...M2: Discuss the factors likely to influence current and future patterns of health in the UK D1: Evaluate the influence of government on factors that contribute to the current patterns of health and illness in the UK There are many factors that are likely to influence current and future patterns of health in the UK. I will be discussing binge drinking particularly in teenagers and obesity issues in the UK. This is because I believe that the biggest health issues affecting the UK at present are influenced by lifestyle choices. There are many current health issues within the UK that are affecting current health patterns and are likely to affect the future patterns of health. The government has introduced policies and legislations that should tackle these factors affecting health patterns. Binge drinking used to mean drinking a lot of alcohol over consecutive days, however now binge drinking refers to drinking a lot of alcohol over a short period of time whether this is to get drunk or to feel the effects of the alcohol on them. This has only more recently changed as teenagers have been seen to drink considerably more alcohol. Different Medias have shown that teenagers have been seen to binge drink more than the average adult drinks. “Media coverage has been given to news that “British teenagers are the third worst binge drinkers in Europe” Teenagers may have many reasons to drink such as issue as home, to fit in, peer pressure or even to feel a sense of thrill from the......

P3 Trends and Patterns in Health and Illness in Three Social Groups.

...P3 Trends and Patterns in health and illness in three social groups. There are many significant differences in humanity and illness rates which continues to occur among income groups, a section of the community whose income falls within a certain range, and social classes, individuals and groups are considered on the sources of respect and status which is learnt mostly through financial success and the growth of wealth. Social class may also refer to any particular level in such a grading, in most developed countries. The fact reminds us of the significance of social and economic causes of health. There is small uncertainty that the low average of living and persistence of total poverty in the developing world are the main factors of health in developing countries. We have the knowledge that our life routes are socially and economically planned and is genetically determined, which changes the determinants of population health into a social science. Medical sciences speak about the biological paths involved in diseases. There are many opportunities for treatment, but so far health is a social creation and some forms of social organization tend to be healthier than others. To advance our understanding of health all depends on collective research. There was change in public health and there was a sudden rise in life expectancy in developing societies. Life expectancy in more developed societies has increased at the rate of two to three years added to life in the 20th century.......
