This week’s second discussion forum focuses on the populations of the chronically ill and the disabled.
You may be familiar with the common quote “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” In reality, however, you may know of a person, family, or group who is not receiving adequate preventive or medical care due to a lack of resources and funds.
- Choose one specific chronic illness or disability of your choice.
- Select two resources in your community that address issues related to the chronic illness/disability and describe the services offered. (I live in Groves, TX for the resources)
- Select two national resources that address issues related to the chronic illness/disability and describe the services offered.
- Analyze whether or not the continuum of care services are adequate for the population with the chosen chronic illness/disability. Explain why or why not.
Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by your course text and at least one other scholarly source. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
