Politics, Stress, and Sleep

question-bubble.png In your reading assignments for this module, you read about a classic example of politics and health promotion in the episode of Rick Perry and the HPV vaccine. For your original post, cite another example of politics and a health promotion topic. An example could be smoking cessation and politics (whether on the local, state, or national level). Thoroughly explain how politics and the selected health promotion topic are related. Your post should clearly demonstrate a thorough understanding of the example being provided. Remember to include an APA formatted in-text citation and corresponding reference from a recent (within last 5 years) professional journal or website (NIH, CDC, etc.).

 


Provide your initial post, then engage at least two of your online colleagues in a discussion about his/her initial posts. Therefore, you should have at least one initial post and one response to each of two colleagues. Please note that your postings and responses must be “substantive”, which means that they are to be made AFTER you have read the assigned course material and additional self-chosen material. Please note that your Discussion Board assignments are worth a significant part of your course grade, therefore, you are expected to put thought and effort into these entries.

Original post is due by Wednesday at 2359, and the two responses to peers are due by Saturday of Module 2 at 2359.

An APA formatted in-text citation and corresponding reference from a recent (within last 5 years) professional journal or website (NIH, CDC, etc.) are required in your initial discussion post. Blogs, magazines, and newspapers are NOT considered scholarly, professional sources.

Module 2: Sleep/Stress Analysis

Submit 2359 Saturday of Module 2

Name: Date:

Overview: Sleep/Stress Analysis

You will review your Sleep Log, reflecting the types of sleep and the impact of sleep deprivation on health. You’ll conduct a short Sleep Analysis using data from your Sleep Log.

Referring to the weekly readings, you will identify which level best describes your own stress. You will also self-assess your stress levels and personality type using online tools, and analyze the implications of your own typical and atypical stress levels.

You are encouraged to practice stress-reduction techniques, some of which are described in your readings. As a healthcare professional, you will often find yourself in stressful situations, but applying such techniques to yourself will help you teach those skills to your stressed clients.

Objective:

· Analyze one’s own sleep patterns.

· Discuss current research on the negative consequences of sleep deprivation.

· Describe the physiological, emotional and behavioral responses to stress.

· Discuss components of stress management.

· I fought off/ignored a need to sleep.

· I dozed off/fell asleep without meaning to.

· I needed caffeine or another stimulant drug to stay awake.

Stress Analysis

Stress Levels

Referring to the article, “Understanding your Stress Levels,” explain which level of stress best explains your typical week. State specific reasons why you place yourself in that level. Explain regular instances in which your stress level either escalates or diminishes.

Stress Reduction Technique

Participate in at least one stress reduction technique for the remainder of the course. There is no assignment component to submit and you will not be graded for this, but I hope you try something new and/or allow yourself time to continue in a technique that works for you!

Readings from the American Cancer Society

The first two readings above relate to a specific example of Health Promotion and Politics and how decisions can be made. Though this occurred in the 2007 Texas Legislature, it still is such an illuminating example of how politics can effect Health Promotion effforts. The first article provides information concerning Perry’s mandate of 2007 and how a health promotion decision re-surfaced politically when Perry ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2011. (Please remember that this is being used as an example of health promotion and politics and in no manner is meant as any political comment on any candidate or political party). The second article was published shortly after the Texas legislative session ended in 2007. It is very important to note that progress concerning HPV and prevention has continued to go forward since the issue was before the Texas legislature. The above website from the American Cancer Society lists many updated references. When you post your comments on the Discussion Board, please assure that you are familiar with updated information.
