Family Assessment Part II GCU – social determinates of health (SDOH)
Family Assessment Part II
Social Determinants of health or (SDOH) is the determination of one’s health by examining their social and economic factors. According to (WHO, 2019) SDOH definition is “the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. These circumstances are shaped by the distribution of money, power and resources at global, national and local levels.”
A disruption in any of these can lead to poor health outcomes.
Upon interviewing the Foster family, it does not appear they experience a lot of SDOH factors. One factors they do experience though, would be financial strain. With the recent tragedy of the kids’ father, there was a lot of unexpected expenses and a loss of income which has resulted in a huge financial strain that has not only been felt with Mrs. Foster, but also with the oldest daughter. With the pressure of this strain, there has been a notable decrease in Ms. Fosters health that has been exacerbated by the decrease in sleep. Also, the loss of medical insurance that the father provided has in return halted the health promotion Family Assessment Part II GCU – social determinates of health (SDOH).
Another SDOH that has affected the family is food insecurity which is related to financial strain. With the loss of income, the family has struggled with the means to buy groceries, in return, the family is making poor eating choices by eating fast food mostly. Thus, increasing the risk of some health problems if not corrected soon.
Appropriate health screenings are a great primary preventative treatment. Ms. Foster is 35 and has had a previous hysterectomy and has stated she is currently not receiving any hormone therapy due to side effects she developed after taking some. She however is experiencing vaginal dryness, no sex drive, and bad hot flashes, and now these side effects are interfering with her daily life. She should seek a gynecologist appointment to further review possible medication treatments. She also has a kidney stone that is unable to be operated on now due to limited surgeries from covid that needs to be monitored. Also, with the amount of stress Ms. Foster has been going through and the lack of sleep she should get a blood pressure screening done as well as getting her routine lab work done.
Ashlynn, 19 years old, should get lab work done for cholesterol and lipids, as well as an A1 C due to extreme weight gain. According to (American Stroke Association, 2018) young adults that are overweight can begin to develop high blood pressure that will put them at higher risk for developing stroke and heart disease later in life Family Assessment Part II GCU – social determinates of health (SDOH). Studies show that there is a relationship between being overweight and heart problems in young adults and that heart damage can begin long before the heart attacks and strokes are seen in overweight adults. Also, with the added fatal heart attack on her father this is a very big concern that should be addressed quickly.
Kylee the middle daughter who is 17, has been acting out and rebelling should be assessed for depression, she also is having a hard time sleeping and is taking medication to help her. She has also never seen an OBGYN so she should make an appointment to be see so she can get a pap-smear and so she can also discuss over HPV vaccine option.
Cade, is the 15 year old son. He should have a mental health screening to rule out depression due to the passing of his father. According to (Douglas M. Maurer|Tyler J. Raymond|Bethany N. Davis, 2018) a disturbed family environment can be a risk factor for depression in youth, and with him not opening very much about how he is feeling, this would be an indicator that he needs to get this screening.
For this family the Self-empowerment model would be beneficial, the main objective in this model is to promote self-empowerment and enhances self- awareness. Also, it uses the action competence process that recognizing determinants that may be beyond their control.
Some health promotion strategies for this family would be to promote exercise and healthy eating, encourage open communication on how each induvial is feeling along with being there and listening when one need to talk, education on developing some healthy coping skills, and educate family on stages of grief. Also, to encourage medical checkups on previously discussed topics. With open communication on how each other’s filling and being respectful on the stages they are going through this family will eventually heal and will be stronger for coming together in this time Family Assessment Part II GCU – social determinates of health (SDOH).

Family Assessment Part II
Refer back to the interview and evaluation you conducted in the Topic 2 Family Health Assessment assignment. Identify the social determinates of health (SDOH) contributing to the family’s health status. In a 750-1,000 word paper, create a plan of action to incorporate health promotion strategies for this family. Include the following:
- Describe the SDOH that affect the family health status. What is the impact of these SDOH on the family? Discuss why these factors are prevalent for this family.
- Based on the information gathered through the family health assessment, recommend age-appropriate screenings for each family member. Provide support and rationale for your suggestions.
- Choose a health model to assist in creating a plan of action. Describe the model selected. Discuss the reasons why this health model is the best choice for this family. Provide rationale for your reasoning.
- Using the model, outline the steps for a family-centered health promotion. Include strategies for communication.
