Improvement of healthcare outcomes for people living with disabilities and their children
Scholar practitioners should look at the gaps and health care knowledge in their communities to identify health issues. A review of health data and literature may provide insight into the nature and extent of the issue. In order to provide unique views and solutions, it is worth speaking with the families and the entire community.
The scholar practitioner needs to identify the problem and develop an intervention that is culturally sensitive, evidence-based, and culturally acceptable. It should have measurable goals to decrease the prevalence or incidence of the issue. A school-based program to encourage healthy eating and physical activity could be an example of an intervention that is evidence-based.
Scholar practitioners should promote improved outcomes for patients and their communities by speaking with healthcare providers, policy makers, and other community leaders to make sure the intervention is a success. Monitoring and evaluation can be done regularly using measurable goals to identify any changes and make recommendations for future interventions.
The web of causation can help expand the scholar practitioner’s understanding of the complexity of the population by highlighting the interrelated and multifaceted factors that contribute to the health issue. This can be used to guide culturally-appropriate interventions that target the root causes.
