Purpose/Aims: The focus of this symposium is on differing, yet innovative, applications of the Flaskerud and Winslow (1998) Health Related Problems of Vulnerable Populations (VP) Model. This symposium will showcase four applications that encompass perspectives on nursing administration, practice, education, and research, all utilizing the Vulnerable Population Model. Background: Limited scientific knowledge has been conducted highlighting health disparities among vulnerable populations. Since the inception of the NIH mandate to include minorities and women in research, the Vulnerable Population Model has been a significant force spearheading, scientific inquiry by nurse scientists conducting with multiple vulnerable groups. Expanding beyond these boundaries, this knowledge base has led Schools of Nursing to explore applications of vulnerable populations knowledge to larger settings, including the development of academic nursing centers, practice settings and educational/training programs revolving around service delivery models and training programs with vulnerable populations. Many communities have set up health centers designed at meeting their community's needs, and Schools of Nursing have developed academic nursing centers that not only allow for student and faculty practice, but also provide care to many vulnerable populations. Training programs and research fellowships have developed that expose students, faculty and staff to vulnerable populations. Adaptation of the Vulnerable Populations Model to encompass not only conceptual, and practice applications, but an administrative focus of a health center or a nursing educational program would appear to be a natural progression of the model's development. These adaptations might allow clinicians, administrators and educators an opportunity to explore relationships between health center resources, risks to patients and the ultimate health outcomes. Methods: The presented studies used theoretical, descriptive, qualitative, and case study report on the use of the model in varying applications. Results: The Vulnerable Populations Model have been applied to an academic nursing center from an administrative perspective where over 6000 patients are served annually. Practical application to home health nursing has revealed the knowledge and skill needed for assessment and intervention along with adaptation of the home environment. Application to an educational setting revealed a sense of competence in analyzing and performing population-based public health nursing at community and system levels. Finally, application of the model to African American breast cancer survivors adheres to identified model assumptions in a research application. Implications: Scholarship, education, practice, and research are enhanced through research with vulnerable populations. Adapting the Vulnerable Populations Model from an administrative, education and practice perspective appears to be useful additions beyond its application to nursing research for advancing the scientific discipline of nursing.
