SU NSG6101 Problem Statement Homeless men suffer from many health conditions. A main health condition is that of mental illness. A study done by Kaduszkiewicz, et al., (2017) resulted that 75% of the population of homeless people suffer from a mental illness that required medical treatment, 6-14% suffered from respiratory problems, 7-20% suffered from some cardiovascular disorder, 5-15% intoxication and injuries, and 10-16% infectious and parasitic diseases. This population of people tend to seek health care only when it is an emergency condition and have a decrease use of primary care facilities (Rhoades et al., 2014). The results of another study by Many homeless men feel a since of powerlessness and that they are being stigmatized due to their mental illness. This is another cause as to why they do not seek health care. The conclusion of a study conducted on access to care for the homeless showed that women were most likely to have access to care for mental health and other health conditions than men (Winetrobe et al., 2017). There is an increase in cost on the healthcare system and an increase in preventable health conditions and diseases among homeless men. This increase is due to the lack of engagement of homeless men of access to primary care. Research Question How effective is an onsite health clinic at a homeless shelter for homeless men in increasing their likelihood of seeking primary care?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
