Holistic

Choose an adult (over the age of 18), can be a friend or relative, and perform a Holistic Health Assessment on them.  Your assessment should include the following 7 parts: Health History and Assessment of Physiological, Psychological (stress, coping), Social, Cultural, Developmental and Spiritual.

Paper requirements: Label each part above with a Level 1 heading; paper should be 1250 words minimum with at least 3 scholarly sources and the textbook.

  • First, describe the data gathered on your client for each of the 7 assessments; it should be clearly documented in detail in your paper.
  • Also, interpret the findings according to pathophysiologic disease states and then choose ONE physiologic abnormality found and discuss possible pathophysiologic reasons for the abnormality related to a holistic basis. How does this abnormality impact the other areas of the patient’s life, especially those areas discussed in this course?
  • Next, discuss the client’s stress and coping mechanisms.  Are they healthy?  What improvements could be made?
  • Finally, create a teaching plan that addresses the client holistically.  Describe at least one client goal for each of the categories (physical, psychological, social, cultural, developmental, and spiritual).  AND answer: How would you teach the client about each goal?  How would you evaluate your teaching?
