Discuss one or more specific communicable disease related to the Healthy People 2030 objectives and share how the disease(s) still remain a major cause of illness, disability, and death even though nearly all are preventable diseases. Discuss specifically how nurses will need to counsel clients about behaviors in efforts to accomplish the identified objectives (consider Primary Prevention, Secondary Prevention, and Tertiary Prevention).
About 1 in 4 people in the United States have a disability.1 Healthy People 2030 focuses on helping people with disabilities get the support and services they need — at home, work, school, and in the health care system.
Studies have found that people with disabilities are less likely to get preventive health care services they need to stay healthy.2 Strategies to make health care more affordable for people with disabilities are key to improving their health.
In addition, people with disabilities may have trouble finding a job, going to school, or getting around outside their homes.3 And they may experience daily stress related to these challenges. Efforts to make homes, schools, workplaces, and public places easier to access can help improve quality of life and overall well-being for people with disabilities.
