    Health Supervision- provide services with the goal of optimizing health or wellness 

    -birth- adolescents-and into adulthood

    • - Three components include:
    •     * Health Promotion (activities)
    •     * Growth and development surveillance and screening - pt monitored overtime 
    •    * Injury prevention- each age group has different safety needs 

    - Health supervision is apart of continuum of care- continue to see pt overtime and monitor their care

    • babies are seen more frequently but everyone should be seen annually 
    • frequently asking questions and monitoring their health, growth and development- head circumference, weight, height, nutrition in effort to keep them healthy

    as a rn, its very important to discuss health promoting behaviors for our pts

    in OB health sup. starts prenatally
  3. Each health supervision visit includes:
    each age group how special and unique needs

    History and Physical assessment- 

    development and behavioral assessment- asking pt about milestone, have they met certain needs, what behaviors are the exhibiting

    Sensory screening- eyes and ears

    risk screening- car safety, smoking, sexual activity, HTN, domestic abuse, physical abuse, metabolic disease at birth 


    Health promotion- oral health, physical activity, nutrition counseling, shelter/housing issues

    anticipatory guidance- info/education provide to families in anticipatory the child is growing and will be able to do new things. how to keep the children safe
  4. Development surveillance and screening
    • Developmental surveillance (watching children overtime)
    • - components include:

    • can screen at any age
    • watch for response to stimuli 
    • screen to see if they are doing anything usual

    • if u understand normal growth and development u will then be able to recognize if something is wrong
    • once u noticed u can identify any delays and start intervention or referral for intervention to help them delay and get caught up. 

    Annual BP check start at age 3
  5. Injury and disease prevention
    • Screening test
    • - risk screening
    • - universal (everyone gets this screening ex vital signs BP) & selective screening (some sort of risk has been identified ie old house lead poision check 6 months usual check 12 months)
    • 1. Metabolic screening 
    • 2. hearing screening
    • 3 vision screening
    • 4. iron defiency anemia (IDA) screening
    • 5. Lead screening
    • 6. HTN screening
    • 7. Hyperlipidemia screening
  6. Immunizations
    Key to disease prevention

    healthy people 2020 goal: achieve effective vaccination coverage levels for universally recommended vaccines among young children

    • Nursing
