Vulnerable Populations Have Special Health Needs


Vulnerable populations have special health needs that can be addressed by nurses and other professionals in the community. Sometimes underlying social and support system issues must be addressed prior to dealing with the health problems themselves. The community/public health nurse must always remain vigilant to potential problems for vulnerable individuals. Evaluate a vulnerable population in your area and discuss ways to support them through Public Health initiatives. What social activism or political advocacy might be needed for the community health nurse(s) to address this issue?
