To prepare for this Discussion:
- Select one health problem that you will use as a basis of comparison between countries.
- Identify one developed and one developing country.
- Compare and contrast the health problems and countries you selected with the United States in terms of World Health Organization (WHO) outcomes. In your analysis, be sure to include information about workforce availability to deal with the country’s disease burden.
- Based on your examination of the research, how well is the United States performing in terms of public health as compared to the developed and developing countries you selected?
- Think about what countries with worse outcomes could learn from countries with better outcomes.
- Think about why nurses should be concerned with global health issues and what the role of the nurse should be in public health.
By Day 3Post your analysis of one health problem between one developed and one developing country in comparison with the United States in terms of the WHO outcomes and criteria listed above. State your opinion about how well the United States is doing in terms of public health. Share what you think countries with worse outcomes could learn from countries with better outcomes. Explain the nurse’s role in public and global health and why nurses should be concerned with global health issues. Conclude by summarizing your view of the role of the nurse in public health.
Support your response with references from the professional nursing literature.
