Health Risk AssessmentNameInstitutionInstructorCourseDate Health Risk AssessmentIn addressing an individual who has taken an online health risk assessment tool for breast cancer and wants a referral for mastectomy since the results indicate that the patient is at a risk for breast cancer, one of the interventions will involve analyzing the health risk assessment tool (Bickley, Szilagyi, & Hoffman, 2017). It is important for an individual to be assisted by a nurse educator before using any health risk assessment tool on the online platform.
This is important in determining which are the most reliable tools based on the patient’s symptoms and concerns (Bickley, Szilagyi, ; Hoffman, 2017). If the health risk assessment tool is reliable, a nurse educator can focus on the available options to improve the health of the patient and promote wellness (Bickley, Szilagyi, ; Hoffman, 2017). There are different ways, which can be applied, and not necessarily, the recommended interventions by the health assessment tool, which can be determined after a careful screening and assessment to identify any other concerns, related to the patient (Bickley, Szilagyi, ; Hoffman, 2017).
