Ischaemic Heart Disease
Lead questions you need to answer:
What type of behavioural intervention would you recommend your patient (strongest evidence) to generate change in targeted (modifiable) health behaviour (e.g., diet, stress, smoking) and population (e.g., adult lung cancer patients). Contrast and compare empirical evidence to support your choice of intervention(s) for your population group
Justify why this is an appropriate intervention for your population group with reference to the different dimensions of the bio-psycho-social model.
Evaluate potential strengths and weaknesses in the plan, e.g. in terms of patient adherence to recommendations. Explain how your treatment plan could serve as an example of ‘Evidence- Based Medicine’.

Discuss the relevance to nursing across the lifespan.
Support your claims with evidence to support the argument.
Reflective case study
Finish summary of case (make it up) and write a short reflective commentary on the case thinking about the following questions.
What have you learnt from the case? What else have you learnt about other than the basic medical case – how does the case relate to the GMC Outcomes for Graduates? Why is communication with the patient important in this case? How will your communication between Primary and Secondary care impact on the ongoing care for this patient? So what personal learning needs have you identified from this case?
Use the template document as already started that and fill it in

The Double Burden of Malnutrition
Describe the burden of malnutrition and how this may be reduced. Your assessment must address all four points.
Describe the health burden of malnutrition, including overnutrition and undernutrition, in your country using published information.
Describe the main determinants of malnutrition o Give the evidence in your country for a double burden of malnutrition ________÷ ( that would be Saudi Arabia ) o Describe the consequences of malnutrition o
Critically evaluate the quality of the information you use.
Imagine you have responsibility for a regional population of 500,000 people in which there is a significant health burden from malnutrition. How could this be reduced?
Describe how you would address undernutrition using a vertical approach and address overnutrition using a horizontal approach. In your answer describe the features that characterize a vertical approach and a horizontal approach.
Analyse the evidence that supports the likely effectiveness of your chosen approaches and justify your choice of these two approaches.
How would you evaluate the success of what you propose in this this region?
