According to Warwick-Booth et al. (2018), health education passes health information to people. On the other hand, health promotion is empowering people to have increased control over their health to improve it. Therefore, one can define health promotion education as a combination of different learning experiences by influencing a change of attitude and increasing knowledge to communities to promote their health (Warwick-Booth et al., 2018). Therefore, health education is part of the broader health promotion strategy. Health education plays various roles in health promotion. One of the roles of education health is that it helps build a capacity for behavior change in a community. In addition, health education helps deliver health information to a specific population concerning various health issues they face, e.g., health threats or benefits that they may face (Rural Health Information Hub, 2022).
According to Semachew (2018), the nursing process is a logical problem-solving technique used in identifying, averting, and treating various health problems. The nursing process has five steps: assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation. The role of the nursing process in health education is that it helps develop critical thinking skills and knowledge to patients about their conditions so that they can reclaim their independence. For example, a patient having a diabetic condition will learn how to administer their injections and how to test their urine.
There are various contemporary issues that families experience globally. These issues involve society killer diseases or untreatable diseases. One of the contemporary issues is diabetes type two. There are various steps that a nurse would take to address diabetes type two in her education plan. The first step is assessing the learning needs of the patient. This step is important because it helps a nurse identify the knowledge gap that their patient has. The second step is to develop learning objectives. A nurse has to set goals that they intend to accomplish after educating diabetes type two patients. The next step is the implementation of patient teaching. This step involves passing knowledge to patients about diabetes type two. For example, a nurse can pass information about the patient’s diet. The next step involves evaluating the patient’s learning to determine whether it was successful. The final step is documenting the patient teaching and learning.
