Community Health and Population-Focused Nursing Field Experience-L127

Part 1: Replacement Field Experience Sentinel Town Project Submission

Note: This activity is different than the simulation in C228 Community Health titled “Sentinel City.” 

Note: Your simulation photo journal must be submitted with your assessment. If both are not submitted at the same time, your task may be returned to you without evaluation.

Sentinel Town is an educational simulation developed by Healthcare Learning Innovations to represent what you may find in any rural community in the U.S. This educational simulation provides a unique opportunity to explore the health and environmental issues facing rural America today, without having to leave your home. You will be able to use a car and/or walk around the community while observing the environment and people of Sentinel Town. Through your observations, you will gather information to assess potential health issues and risks within this virtual learning environment. 

We encourage you to keep a notepad nearby and take notes about your observations. You may take the car tour as many times as needed to complete your assignments. You will assess different factors that may contribute to or detract from the health and wellness of the community and its citizens. After making your observations, you will return to the course and complete the related assignments. Please review the grading rubric for each assignment prior to exploring Sentinel Town.

During your first trip through the town, you will focus on the core of the community, its people. You may be asked to describe the people you see and any expected or unexpected findings related to the citizens. Your keen observations will be the foundation to successfully completing this task.

Communicable Disease

Despite the fact that disease patterns have changed considerably over the last couple of decades, communicable diseases have remained the leading cause of mortality as well as morbidity, particularly in developing countries.  Spengler et al. (2016) have stressed that communicable diseases are diseases that can be spread easily from one person to another.  There are typically caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, and toxins.  Taking this into account, the selected communicable disease for this paper is Ebola.

Description of Outbreak

According to Althaus (2014), Ebola was discovered first in 1976 new Ebola river in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since that time, Ebola has emerged periodically, infecting people in various countries across West Africa.  However, the 2014-2016 outbreak is regarded as the largest in history. The outbreak was first recorded in March 2014 before being declared as a global epidemic by the World Health Organization on June 10 2016. As opined by Kamradt-Scott (2016), the Ebola outbreak in West African began in the rural areas of southeastern Guinea. From this point, it spread to urban areas as well as across borders within a few months. After a few months, Ebola was regarded as a global epidemic. Although Ebola spread to various parts of Africa, Europe, as well as the United States, the most affected countries were Guinea, Liberia, as well as Sierra Leone.
