reply to student regarding this discussion

Hello Dr. Segovia and Classmates,

Initial Post week 4

I have selected Colorectal Cancer as the National Practice Problem, and my focus is on the Asian American population residing in Torrance, California. This group faces various social determinants of health, including language barriers, limited access to healthcare, and financial constraints. Due to these factors, they usually visit emergency departments instead of primary care physicians. Sadly, there are different reasons behind these patients not receiving proper treatment, such as work and family obligations, poor health due to poverty, the inability to afford expensive treatment without health insurance, and the lack of a primary care physician for routine and preventive care (Dhanjani et al., 2023). The objective is to encourage this group of people to participate in preventive healthcare by regularly visiting the doctor and undergoing routine screenings.

The Healthy People 2030 Goal that applies to my selected population and health issue is to improve the health and well-being of men dealing with cancer. Pre-screening and regular visits to the doctor or clinic will increase men’s health as the death rate has increased in the last five years.

I’ve decided to use “Screening” as an Intervention to decrease the risk of colorectal cancer in Asian Americans as part of my efforts to address the Healthy People 2030 goal. This intervention is based on evidence and aims to reduce the morbidity and mortality rates associated with this disease (Kim & Kang, 2022). One helpful intervention is to participate in a stop-smoking campaign. Additionally, maintaining a diet low in animal fats and increasing fruit, vegetable, and whole grain intake can be beneficial. Regular exercise and reducing or avoiding alcohol are also recommended. Preventive measures and screening can lead to early detection and increase the chances of successful treatment.

Efficacy: In this population, the effectiveness of medical intervention depends on healthcare costs, which many people cannot afford. When illness or disease strikes, it becomes a burden on the family. Nonetheless, hospitals, physicians, and healthcare professionals abide by an ethical code to treat all patients, regardless of whether they are uninsured or underinsured.

Effectiveness: The community is the driving force in this area, and its impact on the outcome is significant. The effectiveness of interventions is measured by how well patients receive treatment. When communities come together to help someone in need, they leave a lasting impression and encourage others to do the same.

Efficiency: This section considers the expenses involved in implementing an intervention versus the health benefits it provides. Specifically, it focuses on how an intervention can lower the risk of colorectal cancer.
