to one the following questions:

Based on the research, which of these factors have the
greatest impact on a patient? Why? Contrast at least two ways the factors would
affect a twelve-year-old with the way they would affect a
seventy-five-year-old.

Consider the twelve-year-old and the seventy-five-year-old
have a chronic illness. How does the chronically ill patient’s illness
trajectory influence the plan of care?

Review Healthypeople.gov website. Discuss how you feel these
goals will impact the health of the nation. Briefly discuss how you could

Based on the research of chronic illness, the greatest impact I would say for a patient would be chronic pain and altered mobility. I have chosen these two because I put myself in this situation. If I was suffering from a chronic illness, I do not think I can overcome chronic pain or altered mobility. Not being able to move my upper and or lower extremities and enjoying the things I now take for granted such as walking, self-cares such as bathing, toileting, and feeding myself will be unbearable to think about.   Having to depend on someone else or even worse not having family will be difficult as well. I think I can manage the social isolation but to be in excruciating pain day and night with no relief from pain meds will drive me to suicidal ideations.

Dealing with chronic pain your body may grow accustom to pain meds and the relief may be temporary or may not be 100% effective or I may become addictive. Altered mobility of not being able to transfer or roll side to side or turning myself will send me down a road of depression.

A 12-year-old dealing with chronic pain or altered mobility will show more compliance because at this age they are going through a stage of independence and acceptance from peers. Research showed thatthere was a significant positive correlation between adolescents-valuing involvement in medical decisions and perception of actual involvement. Adolescents who perceived themselves as more involved in their care reported less decisional conflict (David, Lo, & Langer, 2018) A 75-year-old dealing with chronic pain and altered mobility may have a different outlook because at this age they may feel like they have lived their life and chooses to die as a result or they may feel as if this is a punishment from a bad deed they did in their past. They may be prescribed multiple medications and may have multiple medical problem leading to poor medication adherence and poor compliance (Shruthi, 2016).

Consider the twelve-year-old and the seventy-five-year-old have a chronic illness. How does the chronically ill patient’s illness trajectory influence the plan of care?  The chronically ill patient for a 12-year-old and or a 75-year-old illness trajectory are imperative for a patient plan of care because this creates a road map for them to sequentially follow to progress healing and management. Our lecture brings out that this is a sick care system there are billions of dollars spent to treat an illness not realizing how cost-efficient it would be to promote a healthy lifestyle and having health insurance. This may help reduce out of pocket cost such as medications, hospital or doctor visits, and any personal health equipment needed such as wheel chair and at home hospital beds. Another illness trajectories action that may manage the course would be to know your family history, some illness due to lifestyle modification may be prevented whereas other illness may not. Some illness has genetic traits and knowing your family medical history ahead of time may be a future benefit. Eventualities often catch patients by surprise and affects their mental health negatively. On my maternal side majority of my aunts and mother have high blood pressure and diabetes and the men usually get tested for prostate cancer. Knowing this information ahead of time may prevent chronic illness if it is caught and treated early.
