NPs in primary care have a pivotal role in health promotion/maintenance, screening for disease prevention and disease management. To facilitate positive health outcomes, the NP must develop a trusting and collaborative relationship with the patient/family and other members of the healthcare team. As we learned from previous units, there are myriad challenges when caring for adolescent and young adult patients; risky behaviors often lead to deleterious health outcomes or compromised safety. It is important that the NP caring for adolescents and young adults is prepared to effectively communicate wellness and disease prevention and management. Healthcare informatics (telemedicine, electronic medical records, patient portals) “revolutionized,” ways of communicating with patients and other providers via “indirect means.”This Assignment will give you an opportunity to create a proposal to promote health maintenance/promotion, screening for diseases and disease management using social media and principles of healthcare informatics to reach a larger, broader audience.For this Assignment, please follow the directions provided below:Read CDC’s Guide to Writing Social Media.Pick one risky adolescent behavior or one acute or chronic condition that is prevalent in your clinic setting (adolescent or older adult).
