2Family Health Assessment Part 1Every family is different in terms of dynamics, values, and health. When assessing a patient's demands, it's also important to consider the patient's family structure and needs. Families' health promotion encompasses a variety of activities such as identifying disease or illness risk factors, immunization regimens, and health promotion education to assist families in achieving optimal health. “Nursing assessment and interventions for health promotion lead to greater health knowledge and comprehension, emotional and behavioral healing, and other improvements for each family's well-being,” according to Green (2018). Gordon's health pattern and evaluation will be used to base the health behavior analysis that will be investigated in this study. When completing family assessments, nurses have professional competence and can examine how a family maintains their health. The nurse conducts a family health assessment to learn about the family's problem-solving patterns, values and beliefs, coping abilities, physical health, and dietary habits. The report aimed to present a summary of the family health assessment findings, recommend functional health strengths, and portray regions where health concerns were discovered using these patterns. Finally, the study will assess the suitable system theories that can be used to correct the problem.Family StructureTo make the assessment successful, a middle-class Caucasian and a nuclear family were picked. The household is located in the outskirts of the city. The family is made up of a married couple who have been together for more than eleven years. The husband is 41 years old, and the woman is 35 years old. The wife claims to be 30 pounds overweight, and her husband claims to be 25 pounds overweight. The couple has two children: a 16-year-old son and a 13-year-old girl.
3The two children have body weights that are within the usual range. The husband stated that he works at least 40 hours per week, whilst the wife works at least 36 hours per weekFamily Health and Health BehaviorsValues/Health PerceptionThe family's overall health perception is that they are in good shape and do not have any imminent health issues. The family's health is maintained through their health insurance coverage, which enables them to have regular physical health examinations and stay current on immunizations and developing health issues.
