Develop an interview questionnaire to be used in a family-focused functional assessment

This family health assessment is a two-part assignment. The   information you gather in this initial assignment will be utilized for   the second assignment in Topic 3.

Develop an interview questionnaire to be used in a family-focused   functional assessment. The questionnaire must include three   open-ended, family-focused questions to assess functional health   patterns for each of the following:

  1. Values/Health Perception
  2. Nutrition
  3. Sleep/Rest
  4. Elimination
  5. Activity/Exercise
  6. Cognitive
  7. Sensory-Perception
  8. Self-Perception
  9. Role Relationship
  10. Sexuality
  11. Coping

Select a family, other than your own, and seek permission from the   family to conduct an interview. Utilize the interview questions   complied in your interview questionnaire to conduct a family-focused   functional assessment. Document the responses as you conduct the interview.

Upon completion of the interview, write a 750-1,000-word paper.   Analyze your assessment findings. Submit your questionnaire as an   appendix with your assignment.

Include the following in your paper:

  1. Describe the family structure. Include individuals and any     relevant attributes defining the family composition, race/ethnicity,     social class, spirituality, and environment.
  2. Summarize the     overall health behaviors of the family. Describe the current health     of the family.
  3. Based on your findings, describe at least     two of the functional health pattern strengths noted in the     findings. Discuss three areas in which health problems or barriers     to health were identified.
  4. Describe how family systems     theory can be applied to solicit changes in family members that, in     turn, initiate positive changes to the overall family functions over   time.
