Community Health Exam 1 1. A clinic treating a child for otitis media is an example of: A. Community-based care B. Public health care C. Tertiary health care D. Community-oriented care Answer:  A - In community-based nursing, the nurse focuses on "illness care" of individuals and families across the life  span. The aim is to manage acute and chronic health conditions in the community, and the practice is family-centered  illness care. Community-based nursing is not a specialty in nursing but, rather, a philosophy that guides care in all  nursing specialties. 2. A community-oriented nurse has identified obesity as a problem in the middle school. The next step in a population- focused practice is to make information available about the health of the middle school students. This describes the  public health core function of: A. Assessment B. Policy development C. Assurance D. Research Answer:  A - The three public health core functions are assessment, policy development, and assurance. Assessment is  systematic data collection on the population, monitoring the population's health status, and making information  available about the health of the community. 3. A state agency has received multiple complaints regarding the availability of elder transportation services to a specific  county senior center. The state agency assigns a public health nurse to work with the community to evaluate its  program for elder transportation services to publicly sponsored elder care programs. The public health core function  applied is: A. Assurance B. Primary prevention C. Policy development D. Public transportation Answer:  A - The public health core function of assurance focuses on the responsibility of public health agencies to be  sure that activities are appropriately carried out to meet public health goals and plans. This role requires skill in  assessment, investigative functions, collaboration, consultation, and cooperation. Assurance also includes assisting  communities to implement and evaluate plans and projects. 4. A nurse planning a smoking cessation clinic for adolescents in the local middle schools and high schools is providing: A. Community-oriented care B. Community-based care C. Secondary care D. Tertiary care Answer:  A - Community-oriented nurses emphasize health protection, maintenance, and promotion and disease  prevention, as well as self-reliance among clients. Regardless of whether the client is a person, a family, or a group,  the goal is to promote health through education about prevailing health problems, proper nutrition, beneficial forms of  exercise, and environmental factors such as safe food, water, air, and buildings. 5.
