Health Program

Workbook # 2

This workbook contains an example scenario and a practice scenario for those in the consumer health education program.  The workbook is here for an  interactive approach to learning. It s a component of our Health eManagement program and  contains reference material to assist with  study.

The scenarios are examples only.

There are two scenarios, the first is the individual’s own decision.

The second decision is an example of  how one can take  better control of  his health using our health program.

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

Scenario

Mr. ‘X’  has been complaining of unusual tiredness, dizzy spells and feeling under the weather. His wife advised him to see his doctor instead of complaining.

Mr. X is a smoker but does not consider himself overweight.

He eats out often, mainly fast food; he loves soda pop and snacks on salt laden chips.

He finally saw his physician, but it took him a few weeks to do so.  He had a complete physical examination and a series of blood tests.

His doctor gave him a prescription for multivitamins and iron,  and recommended yearly physical examinations.

He returns home, fills the prescription and complied with the treatment.  He feels confident that he is well enough; he can see his physician again if necessary.

He plans to have his yearly physical examination; he is not contemplating any changes to his lifestyle at this point

Evaluation

Mr. ‘X’ was right to see his physician to rule out any medical problems, but his health care would begin in the weeks prior to seeing his physician.  On return home, after seeing his physician, he will focus on self-care to make changes to his present lifestyle. He will implement self-care.

Health Program Scenario

He would take a look at our health risk factors heto see which ones apply.

He is a smoker, so he checks out our health information on smoking for current information on smoking cessation. He learns about the dangers of smoking and second-hand smoke. He decided its time to quit.

Smoking is a health risk factor

He would need additional resources to help him, so he tells his wife of his plans and sets a date to quit.

He plans to us the resources on our site. While using the resources he learns about the other health risk factors

His eating habits are far from healthy so he involves his wife in a healthy eating plan.

He plans to use our healthy eating resources and guide.

He was able to do certain assessments such as his body mass index (BMI)and a physical assessment. He became aware of other health assessments and screening that may be necessary.

He subscribes to our mailing list to receive future information on smoking.

By getting involved in our health education he is now closer to the resources and support to help him quit.

He can even study through the newsletters and develop a personal health toolkit.

He can look forward to a healthier life and still keep appointments with his doctor.

Practice Scenario

Mr. X is a self-employed business man. He employs less than 20 people.

His only income is from this business, but it is profitable enough to support his wife and family. He recently heard about another business associate’s challenges with ill health, and plans to avoid them. He has always been considered well and has not required any medical intervention himself.

What could be his decision based our health program?

Clue: Think about the health and other benefits.
