1. A nurse is teaching a patient’s family member about permanent tube

feedings at home. Which purpose of patient education is the nurse meeting?

a. Health promotion

b. Illness prevention

c. Restoration of health

d. Coping with impaired functions


Teach family members to help the patient with health care management (e.g.,

giving medications through gastric tubes and doing passive range-of-motion

exercises) when coping with impaired functions. Not all patients fully recover

from illness or injury. Many have to learn to cope with permanent health

alterations. Health promotion involves healthy people staying healthy, while illness

prevention is prevention of diseases. Restoration of health occurs if the teaching is

about a temporary tube feeding, not a permanent tube feeding.

2. A nurse is teaching a group of healthy adults about the benefits of flu

immunizations. Which type of patient education is the nurse providing?

a. Health analogies

b. Restoration of health

c. Coping with impaired functions

d. Promotion of health and illness prevention


As a nurse, you are a visible, competent resource for patients who want to improve


their physical and psychological well-being. In the school, home, clinic, or

workplace, you promote health and prevent illness by providing information and

skills that enable patients to assume healthier behaviors. Injured and ill patients

need information and skills to help them regain or maintain their level of health;

this is referred to as restoration of health. Not all patients fully recover from illness

or injury. Many have to learn to cope with permanent health alterations; this is

known as coping with impaired functions. Analogies supplement verbal instruction

with familiar images that make complex information more real and

understandable. For example, when explaining arterial blood pressure, use an

analogy of the flow of water through a hose.

3. A nurse’s goal is to provide teaching for restoration of health. Which

situation indicates the nurse is meeting this goal?

Teaching a family member to provide passive range of motion for a

a. stroke patient

Teaching a woman who recently had a hysterectomy about possible
