Discussion: Nurses Working to Prevent Disease at Home According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (2016), a vaccination has not been found to prevent the Zika virus, a disease that has been transmitted to humans through mosquito bites from mosquitoes that are most active during the day. Zika has been found in many countries around the globe, and its range is expanding. The symptoms of Zika are generally mild, last about a week, and include fever, rash, joint pain, and/or conjunctivitis. Symptoms are generally so mild that many victims will not know they have been infected, but about 20% of those individuals who are bitten will develop Zika. The most concerning symptom of Zika affects pregnant women, whose babies may develop microcephaly. In general, the CDC (2016) has recommended that people wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outside and apply insect repellant beforehand to avoid getting bitten. People who possibly have been infected with the Zika virus are urged to use a condom during sexual contact to avoid spreading the virus to others. In fact, some countries, such as El Salvador, have recommended that women avoid pregnancy for the next two years (The New York Times,1/25/16). The CDC has also recommended that any vessels or containers of open water be protected from access to mosquitoes so that breeding cycles are disrupted. Brazil has begun a massive campaign to stop mosquitoes from accessing breeding grounds by closing their access to water collection systems and other sources of standing or still water. Could something like the Zika virus begin in your neighborhood? In this Discussion, you will examine your neighborhood through the eyes of the public health nurse or a nurse epidemiologist. To prepare for this Discussion: Walk around a two-block radius near where you live or work. Look to see if you can spot any areas where mosquitoes may reproduce. These sites may include abandoned tires, rainwater collection systems that have been installed at homes, parks or golf courses, low sections at roadsides or near sidewalks, and the like. You may include pictures of sites that you find to enhance your discussion thread. Note any positive or negative findings that you observe. Have steps been taken to prevent mosquito breeding? Find out what your community health department does for mosquito abatement. Discover who in your community you would contact to report deficiencies/negative findings. By Day 3 Post your findings regarding mosquito breeding grounds in a two-block radius near where you live or work. Include any preventative strategies you can see that are already in place. Report on the role your local health department plays in mosquito abatement and to whom you would report negative findings. Then, describe your role as a BSN in changing policy to ensure a healthier climate (reduced mosquito breeding grounds) in your neighborhood. Support your response with references from the professional nursing literature

1.Tell me how each member contributed to the outline/speech.
Everyone contributed to the outline except for Hector. I had to message him several times to ask for his part for the outline. Yes some people procarstinate and I myself sometimes is guilty too. But it took all 3 of the ladies to get a hold of him to remind him about the deadline. At the end he stepped up with contributing with the Power point for the Speech. As for myself, I should have stayed on top of the outline and not waited last minute to verify all the information and references. I sometimes beat myself up thinking I didn’t do my best. But having my group telling me they trust me when I let them read the final outline, boost my spirit and confidence. As for Diana and Ashley, they were both helpful and team player. When I needed something for the outline, they produce work right away. Ashley was the first one to give me her part which is amazing. It was the INTRO which is the first needed to construct the outline. And as for Diana, when I asked her that we need Transition for the outline, she immediately worked on it.I was impressed with Hector with the power point. He went above and beyond what was asked for it. We all gave him all the info and he delivered. So for that, he made up the work he didn’t do much for the outline.As for the speech, I am confident to say we did all well. After doing two personal speeches, we all gave each other suggestions and had confidence with each one that we will deliver a strong speech. Everyone has something to work with the speech such as avoiding fillers “UM”. Despite of it all, we applied everything we learned from our previous impromptu and speeches.
2. Who was/were your group leader(s) and why?
I was responsible for submitting work and communicating to the professor. I don’t consider myself the leader because we all contributed and work together as a group to get the work done.
We all gave each one equal work to do for the speech and outline. As for the speech, we made sure everyone has inputs to say. And had equal time for the speech.
3. Did your team interact well? Why or why not?
Yes. Despite of not having enough time to collaborate and the busy schedule of each one, we all tried our best to communicate, We used e-mail and txt messages to keep updates with the outline. We reminded each other what needs to get done. Communicating to each other was the key to get the work done.
