Family Health and Assessment Assignment

Overview

This assignment is the use of a selected conceptual model to help students in describing, pinpointing an exploring families in community practice. The Friedman family conceptual model is a tool used to assess the “family as a whole, as part of the whole of society, and as an interaction system” (Lancaster & Stanhope, 2008, p. 569). The Friedman assessment is following the nursing process in the context of a family and provides guidelines for nursing interventions (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2008). This methodical process can point to family problem area, strengths and resiliency (Lancaster & Stanhope, 2008). As noted in Stanhope and Lancaster (2016), not all of the Friedman assessment tool will be relevant for the family.

Instruction for Assessment and Intervention:

For this project the student must complete the Friedman family assessment short form during from one to two home visits. You must initially receive approval for the family interview, ensure privacy by using only initials or pseudonym to identify family (no other identifier should be utilized). If you identify an intervention that would of benefit to the family, provide the information as soon as possible and follow-up on intervention. Please discuss all proposed interventions in a summary with the Friedman Family assessment and the tentative benefit/s to the family.

The guiding questions for the Friedman family assessment short form is located in Stanhope and Lancaster, 2016, pp. 1046-1047. It will also be meaningful if you read pages 606-618 in Chapter 27 of Stanhope and Lancaster, 2016. Attached is an example of a Friedman family assessment format short form (note the example paper does not have a title page with the identifying data). The assignment must follow the APA format, including a page 1 (Title page) and a title on page 2
