Workbook Health # 1

This workbook  is a component of our  Health eManagement Program.

The workbook contains an example scenario and is here  for an interactive approach to learning.

You will find reference material to assist with learning and links to the other components.

The scenarios are examples only.

There are two decisions, the first shows how the individual may choose to manage her health.

The second is a better decision that can be made through our health program.  In this the person takes control to be healthy with or without medical intervention. It may even make medical intervention unnecessary.

At the end there is an assignment.

Be a fan of the program on Facebook.

==================================================================================================

Scenario

Mrs. X is 47 years old and has always paid attention to her health by making visits to her family doctor periodically.

This time her physician told her that her blood pressure was high and so was her blood  cholesterol.

Her physician mentioned her weight because she appeared overweight. He gave her a prescription for medication to lower her blood pressure and to reduce her cholesterol level.  He advised her to lose weight.

He also gave her an appointment to see him in four weeks. He wants to monitor her blood pressure, her cholesterol levels and effects of the medication.

This seemed good enough for Mrs X.   Her care is now in her physician’s hands. She followed his instructions, took the medication as instructed and plans to keep her appointment at all cost.

“Isn’t it great that I saw Dr. Y today,” was her immediate response.

She is a non smoker. her leisure activities include watching TV, going to the movies and visits to the casino. She drives everywhere.

=======================================================================================

Evaluation

Mrs X’s actions were not wrong.  An interest in her health took her to the physician’s clinic; however, they did not include eliminating or reducing the causes of the problems she was facing. It didn’t include self-care on return home.

Our Health Program

Under our health program she would take a look at the health risk factors that apply to her, and take actions to reduce them.  She would calculate her body mass index( BMI) and check out our healthy eating guide.

This would be a better decision:  Mrs ‘X’ is overweight, so she decides to lose 5-10% of her body weight. To avoid quick fixes she allows herself 5-6 months to do so.

She plans to use our Healthy Eating Guide, this would help her work out a diet which is nutritious and low in calories. She learns to shop wisely for grocery and save money by eating less and the right foods.

By participating in our patient health education program she learns that physical activity along with her new eating pattern would help her meet her goals.

She checks out our resources for tools to manage her decisions.  By using  our resources and participating in our program she will learn to self-care at home.

She seeks out information on hypertension and cholesterol. She learns about the other health risk factors and how they play a part in developing diseases.

Because problems already exist she can join the e-program for coaching and mentoring. This would allow her to address the immediate problems and self-care at home.

Mrs X can now look forward to a favourable response from her physician as she takes control and not him.

She can look forward to fewer visits, and a healthier lifestyle. She can participate in our Self-Developed Weight Loss Plan to learn to lose weight.

Assignment

Mrs X  heard about our health program about six months before she visited her physician.

What would have been a better health decision then?

Question

What health risk factors are present, can you identify them?
