Global Climate Change And Nursing
The environment (both home and physical) has a significant influence on health, as you saw in the readings and media presentations for this week. You also read about the ramifications of global climate change on health. For the purpose of this Assignment, consider the implications of global climate change on health now and in the future.
Write a 3- to 5-page paper that addresses the following:
· Describe two health care concerns related to global climate change.
o Topics could include increased exposure to vectors that transmit Zika, West Nile virus, or malaria; respiratory problems; food distribution problems due to drought or lack of water; or heat-related illness.
· Compare concerns in the United States related to these topics with one developed and one developing country.
· Describe health promotion/health protection strategies a nurse could implement.
· Support your ideas with references from the professional nursing literature.
Please find attached a reference list with links to articles and an article that is from my school library. I also attached the rubric. You can use other references but must be last 5 years and peer reviewed.
Make sure you cite the information in the paper as well. Thank you
