Abstract:
Identifying Health Priorities in a Traveling Preschool
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2005
Author:Alvaro, Shirley, APRN
P.I. Institution Name:University of Hawaii
Title:Instructor
Aims: The purpose of this research is to describe the health education and health promotion priorities selected by the parent/guardian/grandparent accompanying the 0-6 child to the preschool setting.. Background: Caretakers of today's children want accurate health information to guide them in their child rearing practices. Many parents and guardians do not feel equipped or educated in the area of health education and health promotion when addressing the needs of their growing and developing child. Grandparents are being asked to care for children of parents who work one and two jobs to make ends meet in Hawaii. These grandparents come with knowledge and experience, however, feel they are not up to date with current trends and new strategies that may help their grandchild's journey through childhood. The University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Nursing partnered with the traveling preschool to provide the health component that was lacking in the preschool curriculum. Methodology: A survey that was administered to 29 families to identify priorities in health education and health promotion. In response to the survey six topics were identified: chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease; influenza; healthy & safe foods for 0-6 year olds; safe herbs and vitamins for children & adults; effects of TV on children; and age and weight appropriate car seats. Results: From the diverse multi-cultural respondents health education sessions were planned and implemented by the University of Hawaii Nursing students. Implications to Practice: This research demonstrates that approaching health support by identifying population needs is a way to better tailor specific health education.
