To determine proper health promotion activities for an individual, you must first assess their current health status. Without a proper assessment, a nurse would be unable to provide adequate care and intervention. Gordonâ€™s functional health pattern framework provides guidance for this assessment.
Discuss Gordonâ€™s functional health patterns as they relate to assessing an individual (and their family). How do the health patterns as they relate to assessments differ, if at all?
