...Family Assessment Bryan Smith Tulane University Abstract The Gordon’s 11 Functional Health Patterns provides an efficient and well organized mechanism in order to collect data from an individual and all of their life processes (Edelman & Mantle, 2006, pg. 131). With the Gordon’s Functional Health Patterns, it provides the foundation of the nurse’s assessment. “The assessment is a systematic technique for learning as much as possible about the individual”, and the main purpose in collecting all of the information is to discover if there are any health complications and to help identify the person’s healthy goals (Edelman & Mantle, 2006, pg. 147). With the nursing process, the nurse is able to evaluate, make a proper nursing diagnosis, predicts outcomes, prescribes interventions, and is able to assess the effectiveness (Edelman & Mantle, 2006, pg. 147). With subjective and objective data, the nurse is able to organize what is wrong with the individual. The nurse then uses the data he or she has gathered and formulates a diagnosis. With this, the nurse can then continue making a plan of care for the person and help encourage them to a healthier and better goal. For this particular assessment, I chose to interview the “M Family”. I decided to interview them in their own home in order to gather the most accurate information as possible. With this data provided, the Gordon’s 11 Functional health assessment, and the NANDA text book, I was able to devise an......

... Family Assessment Stephanie Anne I. Samson NUR 405 April 28, 2016 Penny Horper Family Assessment The saying “Everything begins with family” is not merely a cliché proverb. The textbook definition of a family is “two or more individuals who depend on one another for emotional, physical, and/or financial support” (Stanhope & Landcaster, 2014, p. 601). For health care providers, collaborations with families are significant partnerships in promoting healthy individual lifestyles, which ultimately contribute to the wellness of an entire community. This report, describes the nursing assessment and health plans for family Y. The Family Family Y is a traditional nuclear family with a four-month-old infant. The parents are both immigrants from Japan who are here only on limited student visa statuses. Most of their extended and immediate families are still in Japan. However, the couple has been successful in building a small group of dependable friends that form their support system. According to AY, acculturating during their first year in the United States was the most difficult experience she ever had to endure. The language barrier and longing for her family and friends were enough to cause her significant stress. The family is in the childbearing stage of development where they are learning their new roles as mother and father.

...Running head: FAMILY HEALTH ASSESSMENT Family Health Assessment Marsha Ricks Grand Canyon University Family Health Assessment Functional Health Patterns Many different people due to their cultural and ethnic background can define family in many different ways. But one thing that is shared by all families is value and health perception. Families are as diverse as the members that make up the family unit. The Family is the primary social framework in which health promotion of wellness and disease prevention and management takes place, and which the belief system influences the health behavior of its members. The purpose of this paper is to analyze family function health patterns using Gordon’s 11 Functional Health Patterns assessment tool. Gordon’s health pattern tool is used to obtain a family nursing history that consist of eleven areas of function to assess and to promote areas of wellness as well as identifying health pattern problems. By using this framework the nurse can combine the cumulated data both subjective and objective, build patterns reflective of their lifestyle. (Edelman & Mandle 2010). If nurses assess functional trends and interactions among patterns, then nurses can accurately predict and diagnosis current or potential issues. By doing this they can more effectively facilitate movement in the positive direction of outcomes to promote an ultimate feeling of well-being.

...Family Heritage Assessment Stacey Bury, RN Grand Canyon University: Nursing 429V April 28, 2012 This paper will seek to understand 3 different cultures with utilization of the Heritage Assessment Tool. The purpose of the Heritage Asessment Tool in health promotion is to gain clarity on different cultures and their families. Increasing diversity of the United States (US) population is a reality in the 21st century. The Census 2000 indicates that one out of four persons in the US are non-Whites with Hispanic Americans constituting the largest (12.5% of total population) and fastest growing minority group. The Healthy People 2010 goal of “eliminating all health disparities” and the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health Care highlight the need for all health care providers to be client-centered and cross-culturally competent. This necessitates health care professionals to be able to elicit, understand, and work with traditional health practices used by their clients. (Sankaran, 2007). Health care professionals can use the Heritage Assessment Tool to gain insight on cultural differneces within our society. The Heritage Assessment will not permit the resolution of all problems, but gives health care providers a view into families and how they deal with health issues. It is impossible to foresee all possible consequences of action, but ethical reasoning can facilitate appropriate and in-depth data gathering, permit the......
