Word Count: 2500 words (+/- 10%) includes in text citations.

You are required to use headings to structure your report. However, should include
logically structured discussion sections. You may include a defined introduction

Description: In this assignment students are required to: Choose one diverse
population of your choice based on the populations outlined in the course content,
that is: children, older person, men, women, minority groups, culturally and
linguistically diverse persons, those with a physical or mental disability. You may
narrow this down further to a subgroup for example: children aged between 11-16
yrs, older people living in residential care, pregnant women, men living in rural and
remote Australia.
Then present a report discussing the key areas to follow. You will also propose a
nursing plan that seeks to address one of the health outcomes you have discovered
for this group.
Within your assignment you need to use the headings provided and discuss:
• WHY your chosen population is considered diverse and include:
o Social determinants of health and how they impact this population;
o Health inequalities (the differences in health status between population groups)
such as differences in wellbeing, risk of disease, abuse/violence, healthy life
expectancy, morbidity and mortality;
o Health inequities (differences in health status between population groups that are
socially produced, systematic in their unequal distribution across the population,
avoidable and unfair) such as difference in access, affordability, income etc;
o Health outcomes – Discuss key health issues impacting this population ie certain
disease, mental health issues, injuries etc (Approx.1200 words)

• Discuss the nursing care considerations that would be important in caring for an
individual of this population. Your discussion should highlight and link to three
Australian Registered Nurse Standards for practice such as:
Standard 2: Engaging in a therapeutic and professional relationship
 How to communicate effectively, and how to be respectful of your chosen
population’s dignity, culture, values, beliefs and rights.
 How to provide support and direct your chosen population to resources to
optimise their health-related decisions (Approx.1200 words)

Referencing should be included using APA 7th Edition guidelines. Review the FedCite
Resource page. It is expected that the students use a minimum of 15-20 peer
reviewed sources for referencing. These should be no more than 7 years old unless
of historical significance and/or of specific relevance to the topic (for example; the
Ottawa Charter from 1986). These references must be a mixture of books and
journals or Library database sources. Dictionaries or Wikipedia are not considered a
primary reference and therefore will not be counted in the reference count. Direct
quotes, appendices or the reference list, are not counted in the word limit. Direct
quotes must be limited to no more than 50 words and be according to APA 7th
Edition style
