Preschool Child Case Study
Student’s Name: Edgardo Mejias Chacon
Institutional: Miami Regional University
Professor: Dr. Rafael Camejo
Prevention of Disease Case Study
The nurse would collect information about the child’s physical health to assess Ricky.
According to Martin et al. (2019), the nurse would obtain a history of the child’s eating habits
and be aware of any changes in appetite or refusal to eat. The nurse would inquire about any
recent illnesses or injuries that might have affected his appetite or ability to swallow food.
The nurse would also collect information about the child’s emotional health. Ricky’s physical
health can be assessed by noting signs of dehydration, fever, and changes in blood pressure.
Ricky’s emotional health can be evaluated by recording anxiety symptoms, such as
restlessness and irritability when preparing or eating food. In addition, Shatkin (2019)
supports that the nurse would collect information about the family’s socioeconomic status and
The nurse would first want to ascertain whether or not Ricky’s refusal to eat is due to
any underlying medical condition. She would next like to determine whether or not Ricky is
experiencing any pain or discomfort with eating, as this could be a symptom of an underlying
medical condition (Lumba et al., 2018: Martin et al., 2019). The nurse should also ask
Ricky’s mother about his recent behavior at school, including whether there were any new
friends or activities that he joined or participated in recently. If there were any changes, the
nurse should inquire about them so she can further explore the issue of Ricky. The question
to the mother should follow the following criteria. Nurses would ask the following questions:
what are the child’s eating and dietary pattern? How has this changed over time, and why?
What are his preferences, likes, dislikes, and favorite foods? Is he eating enough at meals?
Does he have a problem with food? If so, what is it?
The extended family residing far away influences the family’s approach to health
promotion. The extended family can also help by being available for play dates or visits when
needed since the parents have a tight schedule as full-time workers (McNeil, Campbell &
Crews, 2018). They can also support other activities essential to the child’s development,
such as school events or celebrations like holidays with Ricky. As such, Ricky feels it is
necessary to have a close relationship with his family, so he may be stressed about not being
able to visit them often. Dallacker, Hertwig, and Mata (2018) argue that their child is not
getting to see them as much as he would like. It also means that he will not be able to spend
as much time with extended family as he would like.
There are several factors to consider when determining whether malnourishment is a
factor in a family of Ricky’s. If the family is experiencing any other issues, it might
contribute to Ricky’s refusal to eat. If so, you may consider those factors in evaluating their
situation. For example, if the family has recently experienced a divorce proposal or other
significant life change, Lumba et al. (2018) support that it may be difficult for them to focus
on nutrition concerns when trying to cope with their own emotional needs. Or if another child
in the household shows signs of malnutrition, such as not gaining weight or being
underweight. Another factor is if the family is currently experiencing a period of economic
hardship. This entails whether the household income is significantly lower than previously
and whether the family’s food budget has been cut (Panda, 2019). This could mean they must
make difficult choices about what they eat and how much they spend on groceries.

CASE STUDY: Albert
Albert Mitchell is a 36-year-old man who will be traveling to Dubai to give a business
presentation in 3 months. Although he has traveled widely in the United States as a consultant,
this is his first trip to the Middle East.
He requests information regarding immunizations needed before his trip. Albert states that as
he will be in Dubai for only a few days, he is unlikely to contract a disease in such a short time
and therefore believes that it is illogical to obtain immunizations.
Albert states that he has heard that the side effects of the immunizations might be worse than
the diseases they prevent. He is also concerned about leaving his wife at home alone because
she is 6 months pregnant.
How would you address Albert’s beliefs?
What learning would be needed in each domain?
What learning theories would you consider?
How might his family concerns be addressed?
