Overview: As a community of practice, your task for this week is to ÿcollaborate with professionals across the health care system. With your ÿcommunity of practice, in the Discussion, find a gap in care or social ÿdeterminant that often results in poor health care outcomes. You will ÿbegin to take the lead in advocating for and collaborating with others ÿto improve the health care outcomes for populations at risk.Practicum Discussion: During this week, you will identify a ÿpopulation at risk in your community. This population will be the basis ÿfor your Practicum Discussions and your individual presentations over ÿthe next 6 weeks, as well as the focus of your final PowerPoint ÿpresentation in Week 6. To review, a population is a group of ÿindividuals who share a common environmental or personal characteristic, ÿsuch as obese individuals who are at risk for diabetes or ÿcardiovascular disease (populations at risk) or those individuals who ÿare otherwise healthy and could stay healthy if they do not develop ÿrisky behaviors (populations of interest). An example of this is ÿteenagers who don?t yet smoke but might consider it due to peer pressure ÿ(Stanhope & Lancaster, 2016). Some of the topics you might consider ÿare vaccination compliance, obesity rates among children and adults, ÿteenage pregnancy, or infectious diseases such as Norwalk virus, genital ÿwarts, or sexually transmitted diseases/infections. You might look also ÿat emerging public health problems such as Chagas or the Zika virus. ÿSome of the places you might consider looking for information to ÿsubstantiate and support your ideas about populations at risk in your ÿcommunities are your local health department, the CDC, and the many ÿevidence-based websites that the CDC supports, such as the CDC Wonder ÿ(http://wonder.cdc.gov/). You may also review the work of other ÿcommunity groups that focus on improving health care outcomes for your ÿcommunity. You should begin to support your selection of population and ÿideas about their health care problems through the use of health data ÿand scholarly literature.Please address the following points in your Practicum Discussion:Briefly describe your community and then describe your practice setting.What are the determinants of health in your community? ÿ(https://www.healthypeople.gov/2020/about/foundation-health-measures/Determinants-of-Health)What are the most prevalent health problems in your community or in your practice?Choose a population at risk and describe the health problem specific to that population.
