Visit the Healthy People website using the imbedded link:
Review their 26 leading health indicators (LHI). Identify 3 important indicators that you would like to promote as a community health nurse. Discuss why these three indicators are important to you? Identify a primary, secondary or tertiary prevention strategy that you would use to improve the health of people in the community using one of these selected indicators. For example, smoking among adolescents is one LHI; this may be important to someone if a family member or friend began smoking in high school and developed lung cancer. A primary prevention strategy could be educating high school students about the effects of smoking; a secondary strategy would be to screening people who smoke for early detection of disease; tertiary prevention would be smoking cessation to limit damage and disability.
