Assigned Health Condition: Cancer

  1. What are the recommendations for diet, exercise, and sleep for individuals diagnosed with your assigned health conditions?
  2. How do these behaviors relate to stress, if at all?
  3. What of the other factors you learned about in Modules 1 and 2 may be playing a role in the behaviors of patients that comply and don’t comply with these recommendations? (Module 1 and 2 talked about how culture and stress play a role with my assigned health condition)
  4. Could any of these health behaviors have caused the condition or contributed to its prevention or development?
  5. dentify and describe at least one theory-based and evidence-based practice for increasing one or more of these health promoting behaviors (oftentimes one type of intervention will work across behaviors).
  6. Be sure to include references and examples from the articles you found.
  • For your individual health condition, identify articles that examine this week’s variables/factors (nutrition, exercise, sleep) in relation to your assigned health condition.
  • Find and read at least two articles for each of the health behaviors (for a total of six). If possible, choose one article that describes the effect of the health behavior on your assigned condition, and another that describes an intervention to help the patient follow recommendations for the health behavior. A literature review article less than 5 years old would be a good choice. All other articles should be recent empirical studies (i.e., studies that produced data and have a results section with statistical analyses or qualitative analyses). As much as possible, choose empirical studies that were published no more than 3 years ago.

Remember that you need to find and read at least two articles for each of the health behaviors (nutrition, exercise, sleep) for a total of six articles beyond the week’s assigned readings.

Also, be sure to clearly address each of this week’s discussion topic requirements:

  1. What are the recommendations for diet, exercise, and sleep for individuals diagnosed with your assigned health conditions?
  2. How do these behaviors relate to stress, if at all?
  3. What of the other factors you learned about in Modules 1 and 2 may be playing a role in the behaviors of patients that comply and don’t comply with these recommendations?
  4. Could any of these health behaviors have caused the condition or contributed to its prevention or development?
  5. Identify and describe at least one theory-based and evidence-based practice for increasing one or more of these health promoting behaviors (oftentimes one type of intervention will work across behaviors).

You can use headings or numbers within your post to indicate which portion corresponds to each required topic. Finally, don’t forget to include references and examples from the articles you found (point #6).
