A nurse educator is preparing an orientation on cognitive illness and the workplace. There is a need to address the many clients with cognitive issues that seek healthcare services and how to better understand the needs. Choose a cognitive illness that you feel less knowledgeable about and address the following prompts by including three examples of each question:
Compare and contrast this illness with a physical illness (one that can be “seen”).
Provide examples of the historical, socioeconomic, political, educational, and topographical aspects of this disease.
Report the appropriate interdisciplinary interventions for high-risk health behaviors associated with this disease.
Determine the influences of their value systems on management of this disease.
Outline health-care practices, including acute versus preventive care; barriers to health care; the meaning of pain and the sick role; and cultural practices that can impact this disease.
Identify cultural issues related to learning styles, autonomy, and educational preparation and any impact on disease management.
