Can someone please help me to start answering this question. I have been working on it since 6pm yesterday and it is now 3:50 am. I don't know where to begin . Also, did I match the sentences correctly with the correct type of prevention for the sentence ?
Thank you,

Analyze the scenarios and describe the Level of Prevention each scenario addresses. (Primary, Secondary or Tertiary) Do you think the prevention strategy used in the scenario is effective? If not, what would you do differently?) 200 to 300 words

Scenario 1: Violence Prevention in a High-Risk Community

Karyn, a social services worker, is confronted daily with issues such as homicide, suicide, child and elder abuse, battered women, sexual assault, and domestic violence at the community agency in which she works. Her job responsibilities are to build community and agency coalitions to help meet the needs of the community. (Primary Prevention )

One day, an enraged young man storms into the agency demanding to know the whereabouts of his wife, who he had ordered not to leave the house. The wife is cowering in Karyn’s office after being referred by her physician for suspicious bruises.
(Primary Prevention)


The wife is later transported to a shelter for battered women. The shelter provides classes in self esteem, parenting, and job training and placement. It also assists clients with access to eligible welfare benefits and housing. (Secondary Prevention)

Scenario 2: Closure of a Planned Parenthood Clinic

You are a human services liaison in your community’s county public health office. Of the 60,000 people living in your county, 12,000 are women of childbearing age. The teen pregnancy rate is above the national average. Of the county’s births, 25 to 30 percent are unintended. With an annual per capital income of just over $13,000, most of the population lives below the poverty level.
(Secondary Prevention )




At your weekly team meeting, your manager announces that the Planned Parenthood Clinic in the county is closing due to lack of funding. Other county family planning providers have waiting lists and cannot take new patients. Team consensus is that lack of accessible and affordable family planning services will lead to more unintended pregnancies, child abuse, and poverty. (Secondary Prevention)


You organize a group of other health and human service providers in the county to solve the issue. After much discussion, the public health office decides to offer limited family planning services. Primary Prevention



Scenario 3: Caring for the Homeless
You are a case manager in a community mental health center. Many of your clients are homeless and have either mental disorders or substance abuse and health problems. Tertiary Prevention

Health problems among the homeless are exacerbated by their homeless status. Exposure to extreme temperatures and a lack of sanitary facilities, nutritious food, restful sleep, and support networks worsen infections and chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. The homeless are less likely to take medications for their mental and physical diseases. Most homeless people do not seek health care until they are so sick or injured that they have to be transported to the emergency room by ambulance. Tertiary Prevention



Although there is a community health center in the county, it is not financially or geographically accessible to the homeless. After determining the needs of the homeless population in your case load, you meet with the leaders of all the agencies that provide services to the homeless, including the health center. You learn that there are three shelters, one food bank, and two faith-based initiatives providing services to the homeless. Secondary Prevention

A collaborative decision is made to provide basic health services in the shelters. The health center will supply the clinical providers, supplies, and equipment; the shelters will provide the space, furniture, and utilities; and the mental health center will provide on-site case management that includes counseling and support groups. Secondary Prevention

  1. I am uncertain of your definitions (see text) for primary, secondary, tertiary. My understanding of those terms: primary...education to prevent, secondary....education and counseling to prevent likely events, tertiary ...counseling, on scene intervention to defuse and prevent because of likely past history...
    would indicate many of your classifications are erroneous
