Pros and Cons to Delivering Community-Based Participatory Care
The purpose of this discussion is to describe some of the benefits and challenges to delivering community based participatory care to the disabled adult vulnerable population. The disabled adult population is at risk for poor health outcomes for many reasons. This population is at a disadvantage for health disparities due to low socioeconomic status and other disparities (Pender et al., 2015) because of the nature of their illnesses. As an advanced practice nurse, interventions should aim to reduce health inequalities among disabled adults. This is initially done by performing health assessments prior to formulating targeted health plans in partnership with each patient.
