Suggest areas of research for the chosen population-based on weekly readings and lectures. Analyzed and suggested two areas of research about chosen population

First Research Area: Health Disparities in Nursing (Phillips & Malone, 2014)

Nowadays, people want to believe that they get rid of disparities and inequalities. However, it is not actually true because there are many communities and populations that cannot find the required portion of support because of their race and ethnicity. It is important to investigate the grounds of inequalities and underline the facts that help to improve the current situation.

  • The task is to reduce health disparities.
  • Abilities for people to improve their health
  • Importance to get treatment any time
  • Demographic trends grow rapidly.
  • Disparities in health care exist today.
  • Connection of health outcomes with ethnic diversities
  • Diversity in the nursing workforce bothers many people.
  • Funding and support policies are required.

Second Research Area: Hispanic Population Healthcare Innovations (Chin et al., 2012; Health care innovations for Hispanic populations, 2015; Truong, Paradies, & Priest, 2014)

There are many innovations that could be offered to Hispanic population healthcare. People have to understand their roles and impact on health care and take steps to improve the quality of healthcare and nursing.

  • Healthcare quality should be improved.
  • Hispanic health care has its measures.
  • Healthcare requires new solutions and improvements.
  • Cultural competency matters in healthcare
  • Intervention effectiveness depends on all healthcare workers.
  • Minority health should not be a problem.
  • Patient navigation is a new idea to try.
  • Engagement of families in health care matters

The writer did not follow my choice of topic (Food/Water Insecurity, Hunger, & Poverty), the paper was instead written about Climate Change in Africa. However, the paper was still great and informative. Thank you!
