Page is employed by the local county health department as one of the two RNs in the county’s public health system. Her job is to cover eight of the 16 cities located within the county encompassed by her county’s health department. She provides a wide range of services including health screenings and health education and promotion programs. According to the IOM & QSEN competencies, Page needs to deliver expert, safe, effective, and patient-centered care to the community population. Page’s supervisor has alerted her to an outbreak of pertussis (whooping cough) in an underprivileged community. She has been asked to prepare a health education program about whooping cough and present it in the community’s elementary school auditorium. Her audience will consist of parents, teachers, and concerned citizens. In reviewing what she knows about the city, she notes a large population of Hispanic Americans.
Page’s supervisor has also alerted her to the fact that one of the scheduled presentations will take place at a local church that serves an underprivileged population of migrant workers who primarily speak Spanish. The average educational level of this particular group is approximately at the third grade level.
