Determinants of health fall under several broad categories: Policymaking, Social factors, Health Services, Individual Behavior, and Biology and Genetics”. —Healthy People 2020As stated, these categories of health are broad. One important competency of a public health nurse is the ability to recognize and consider the linkages between these categories when addressing the health needs of a population. For this Discussion, you will consider definitions of health across populations. To Prepare: Review the Healthy People 2020 website and reflect on what makes some people healthy and others unhealthy. Review this week’s Learning Resources, giving specific attention to perspectives provided by the “Determinants of Health” video. By Day 3Post a response to the question: “In your own words, how do you define health?” Explain the resources needed to achieve optimal health in a population. Then, explain what resources are available in your own community for supporting the achievement of health. Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses. By Day 6Respond to at least two of your colleagues by comparing your responses to the question: “How do you define health?” Then, compare the resources you included as necessary to achieve optimal health in your community to those cited by your colleagues and explain why the necessary resources may differ between individuals and communities.  Purchase this Tutorial.  https://aptitudenursingpapers.org/
