C.

A. Describe what is meant with socioeconomic inequality in health, and discuss some empirical examples.
B. Compare different approaches (universal vs selective) to tackle socioeconomic health inequalities in relation to the examples you described above, and discuss some pros and cons of the different main strategies.
C. Discuss some of the challenges the application of these strategies face when taking into account different cultural contexts.
D. Working with public health initiatives to reduce socioeconomic inequalities in health may entail initiatives aiming to influence and change the ways in which people think and act, which would mean that medicine plays the role of a ‘moral entrepreneur’ (Freidson, 1970: 252). Discuss the problematic sides of such a role, via examples.

Support your response with evidence and references to the learning resources (including the primary literature).

Common symptoms of anxiety disorders include chest pains, shortness of breath, and other physical symptoms that may be mistaken for a heart attack or other physical ailment. These manifestations often prompt patients to seek care from their primary care providers or emergency departments. Once it is determined that there is no organic basis for these symptoms, patients are typically referred to a psychiatric mental health practitioner for anxiolytic therapy. For this Assignment, as you examine the patient case study in this week’s Learning Resources, consider how you might assess and treat patients presenting with anxiety disorders.
To prepare for this Assignment:
Review this week’s Learning Resources, including the Medication Resources indicated for this week.
Reflect on the psychopharmacologic treatments you might recommend for the assessment and treatment of patients requiring anxiolytic therapy.
The Assignment: 5 pages
Examine Case Study:
A Middle-Aged Caucasian Man With Anxiety. You will be asked to make three decisions concerning the medication to prescribe to this patient. Be sure to consider factors that might impact the patient’s pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes.
At each decision point, you should evaluate all options before selecting your decision and moving throughout the exercise. Before you make your decision, make sure that you have researched each option and that you evaluate the decision that you will select. Be sure to research each option using the primary literature.

Explain your rationale.

View STD data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC,2021) by following these steps.
Access the CDC Atlas Plus https://www.cdc.gov/nchhstp/atlas/index.htm Select STD from the STEP 1 prompt: What data do you want to see?
Select Charts from the STEP 2 prompt: How do you want to see them?
Access STD ChartsLinks https://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/nchhstpatlas/charts.html Navigate to the left-hand search box titled Select Data
Select STD from the indicator category.
Select California from the geography category.
Examine the data presented in the charts and address the following:
-Explain what the data indicates about infections rates based on age, race, and gender.
-Identify evidence of disparities. Explain your rationale.
-Discuss biases or barriers that may contribute to disparities in STD rates in your state.
-Return to the left side of the screen and change the geography indicator category to the United States. Discuss how rates in your state compare to those of the U.S. as a nation.
-Describe two person-centered actions the nurse practitioner can use to promote STD self-care management for marginalized clients.
-Discuss opportunities for interprofessional collaboration to address disparities in STD rates.

If this is not possible, you may base your report on the common standards you find in your research.

Assume you are the program director of an EMS training center. One of your paramedic students was injured while on a field clinical ride-along. The student will miss approximately 2 months of class, which will delay his or her completion of their program. The student has contacted an attorney and is claiming the school was negligent in the training and practices.
Your dean has asked you to prepare a mitigation report on the steps needed to make sure that this situation does not occur again.
Your report to the dean should provide the specifics of the actions you will take within the program to prevent another injury from occurring, while providing the best environment for student success, whether in class or while students are on field rotations. You should present an insightful and thorough analysis with strong arguments and evidence. Some specifics the dean has asked for include a review of the following components:
the applicable content of the student handbook pertaining to risk and liability,
the orientation program for students,
the preceptor training program and its records,
practice of scheduling and assigning students to ride-sites and preceptors,
the emergency procedures that take place when a student is injured, and
the level of engagement of the medical director in the program.
The items you are reviewing are standard in most EMS education programs. You are encouraged to base your review and report on specific documentation from your current employer or local EMS facility. If this is not possible, you may base your report on the common standards you find in your research.
Your report should be at least three pages in length. You must utilize a minimum of two outside scholarly sources. Adhere to APA Style when creating citations and references for this assignment. APA formatting, however, is not necessary.

As a reminder, this week’s literature themes are: nutritional influences; discerning attributable outcome; roles of non-communicable disease; and, the iceberg example from covid-19.

Go to https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ type in each article number 508686; 28424146; 32183930. and explain how
they represent very different aspects of the pervasive issues around respiratory illness. While the threats highlighted are quite different from each other in many ways, in terms of likelihood of infection including their cosmopolitan
nature and the influence of societal and host factors, they have a lot in common.

Discuss why randi thought this was not a heart attack.

The following story and questions are designed to stimulate critical thinking through class discussion or as a brief essay response. There are no right or wrong answers to these questions.
Randi Marchant, a 42-year-old waitress, was vacuuming the family room when she felt that painful squeezing in her chest again. This was the third time today, but this one really hurt. She sat down to catch her breath and stubbed out the cigarette she had left smoldering in the half-filled ashtray by the couch. Randi’s husband, Jimmy, and stepdaughter Melonie had pestered her until she finally had taken time off work to see her doctor. Dr. Harris found that her blood pressure was 158/88—probably owing to the noon rush stress at work, she rationalized. At least her cholesterol test was only 30 points above average this time. It had been slowly coming down, even though she cheated on her diet.
Another wave of pain tightened its icy fingers around her heart, and the pain moved up into both sides of her jaw. Randi thought, “Probably just a little heartburn. Since the pain doesn’t radiate down my left arm, it couldn’t be my heart, could it?”
“Don’t think about the pain,” she told herself. “Think of something else. Melonie’s prom dress needs altering.” Randi fell to the floor, clutching her chest, just as Melonie walked in. She saw her stepmother slumped on the floor and screamed, “Oh my God! Help, somebody, help!”
1. What information in the story indicates that Randi might be a candidate for heart disease?
2. Discuss why Randi thought this was not a heart attack.
3. What can Melonie do immediately to try to save Randi’s life?
4. Assuming that Randi is suffering a myocardial infarction, discuss why it is important that she receive appropriate treatment quickly.
