Evidence Base Practice and Applied Nursing Research
Keyworth, C., Peters, S., Chisholm, A., & Hart, J. (2013). Nursing students' perceptions of obesity and behavior change Implications for undergraduate nurse education. Nurse education today, 33(5), 481-485.
In this article, the four author have portrayed a negative image for those students who take nursing in the university in the course of their studies. They have been portrayed as people who are never aware of the impacts of this disease before taking this course. Therefore, they have little knowledge about the topic of discussion. Ideally, this proves how most of these students are not made updated on the prevailing issues in the society (Keyworth, et al., 2013). The reality is that this information has no valid justification as the authors reveal them. All that they say is that given that the subject of obesity has been so prevalent in the current era and that the nursing students have nothing much to offer about it, they are therefore attributable to the brandishing awarded by these authors. On the other hand, given the publicity of the matter to hands of the public domains, almost all people have the information regarding the issue. Only that they need to be aware of how to take the preventive measures to avert any signs that one might be affected by the illness.
Notably, all this can only be done by the medical practitioners since they have the capacity to conduct the research on various ways in which one can become affected by the diseases along with the curable measures. It will help to prevent the possible loss of lives that are inevitable in the case that one has been suffering the impacts of this disease. These people have to be aware that the society is watching hem so that they can feed them with the right amount of data, which will help the society deliberate on the matter and assume the right measures to curb the strength of these diseases (Keyworth, et al., 2013). In their conclusion, they find the college education being vital in ensuring that students get the required knowledge to enable them to assist the community in all its needs. The point of controversy arises whereby the authors fail to acknowledge that the students have prior knowledge concerning obesity before they attend the college education. Nevertheless, as depicted by the chart below, all areas that comprise this research were relatively done well.
One of the ethical issue that this research has put into considerations is the
issue of environmental
they have addressed the issue, those who engage in the field of health have to
tell people about the importance of keeping a clean environment that will see
them free from diseases. If other types of research would embody
the same aspect, they will be appropriate for this case scenario. Finally, the
evidence that the investigators give in the course taking their analysis is in
line with the research. Then, a theoretical model will do well to this arena
since it will help to give the course to be followed in the course of executing
all this. As well, in this research, all the five areas that comprise the
research paper have been well done. In this regard, the introduction is much in
line with the conclusion. Moreover, the body that entails the literature review
and the methodology along with the data analysis are well documented. Given
this, they all make the research comprehensive and a reliable source.

In this article, the authors seek to encourage the members of the public to participate in various forums that encourage people to take the nice routes in the course of making them aware of the disease along with its effects. People have to seek the services of those people who advise on the best practices to execute so as to combat the dangers of this disease (Swift, et al., 2013). It will help those without the disease to undertake measures that can prevent one from being caught in the suffering of this disease. Those who are already suffering the disease will be advised about the right way to tame the effect of the disease and possibly cause cure to it. In this case, a theoretical model will be necessary to guide the procedure in which all will be attained.
Kantor, E. D., & Giovannucci, E. (2015). Adolescent Obesity and Inflammation about Colorectal Cancer Risk: Recent Findings and Future Implications. Childhood Obesity, 11(4), 335-337.
In this case, the two authors go to the details of the aftermaths of obesity. One of these aftermaths is cancer, and this can be dangerous especially to the youth. Many youths take the subject of cancer light not knowing that it constitutes to the higher percentage of deaths more than any other disease (Kantor & Giovannucci, 2015). Given this, the authors, in this case, seek to encourage the youth to undergo the cancer screening so that those who are already suffering from the disease and are not aware can undertake early medications.
Gagnon, L. E., & Sheff, E. J. K. (2012). Outcomes and complications after bariatric surgery. AJN the American Journal of Nursing, 112(9), 26-36.
In this case, Gagnon and Sheff reflect on the aftermaths after one has undergone some surgery to determine all that they suffer. Sometimes, it might be a complex surgery to most people, and this implies that it could prove a difficult engagement by most of the people who engage in this behavior (Gagnon & Sheff, 2012). As well, it can be beneficial since one will know all that they suffer alongside the doctor and this will be instrumental in seeking the right medication. In this case, a theoretical model will be crucial to offer directions to be followed.
Aranda, K., & McGreevy, D. (2014). Embodied empathy‐in‐action: overweight nurses’ experiences of their interactions with overweight patients. The nursing inquiry, 21(1), 30-38.
Given the predicaments that people who are overweight undergo in the contemporary societies, it is advisable that they keep in touch with the nurses so that they can be told about the most efficient practices to undertakes, which will have an effect of making them a bit lighter (Aranda & McGreevy, 2014). Aranda and McGreevy have documented these aspects pretty well.
Buxton, B. K., & Snethen, J. (2013). Obese women’s perceptions and experiences of healthcare and primary care providers: A phenomenological study. Nursing Research, 62(4), 252-259.
Women have been described as the people who have shown much apathy with those who suffer this disease, unlike their male counterparts (Buxton & Snethen, 2013). Therefore, they have been described as people who can encourage others to undertake measures that can help reduce the effects of these pandemics. A theoretical model is deemed essential at this juncture since it will help bring the actual picture of all that is expected.
Flegal, K. M., Carroll, M. D., Kuczmarski, R. J., & Johnson, C. L. (1998). Overweight and obesity in the United States: prevalence and trends, 1960-1994. International journal of obesity and related metabolic disorders: journal of the International Association for the Study of Obesity, 22(1), 39-47.
In this article, the ability to understand the entire concept of obesity has been described as the key to attaining the victory against this problem in the society. Truly, this concrete knowledge will serve to reduce the effects that arise when people suffer an unknown disease (Flegal, et al., 1998). Given the fact that people will be aware of the signs of obesity, they will have to undertake the medical care before the situation worsens.

In this case, those that have suffered diseases such as diabetes have been well told about, regarding all that they can do to live a longer life. People who suffer this disease are typically known to die after a short spell of time (Talley, et al., 2015). Mostly, one will have to survive for long though with challenges if he or she has noticed the disease and has undertaken the right medical course. Such a move will help take the effects of the disease.
Jinks, A., Cotton, A., & Rylance, R. (2011). Obesity interventions for people with a learning disability: an integrative literature review. Journal of advanced nursing, 67(3), 460-471.
In this journal, those who suffer obesity and still have other disabilities have been described. These authors have discussed the possible measures that they can pursue to effect a better life (Jinks, Cotton & Rylance, 2011). It will help those who suffer the same fate if they embody all the practices that have been explained in this journal.
Panel, N. O. E. I. E. (1998). Clinical guidelines on the identification, evaluation, and treatment of overweight and obesity in adults.
In this case, the author takes an initiative to discuss various diseases that emanate from obesity. Cardiovascular has been at the forefront since it is one of the prominent diseases in this case (Panel, 1998). All the possible ways to eradicate this disease have been told in this research. In this case, a theoretical model when used will act as a control example to the nurses.
