Discussion week 6 health promotion

I need an explanation for this Nursing question to help me study.

C.C is a nurse practitioner working in a small private high school. She provides comprehensive care to the students and staff at the school. She coordinates the health education program of the school and consults with the administration to identify the educational and health promotion needs of the population.

She works in a Catholic high school. She meets resistance about providing health education about some of the topics typically taught to the adolescent age group. Substance abuse prevention; HIV, AIDS, and sexually transmitted disease prevention; and pregnancy prevention are topics that are highly controversial at her school. However, C.C. realizes that it is imperative that she reach the teens about these difficult topics.

Discuss the recommended schedule of health-promotion and preventive health visits for adolescents and the appropriate topics for inclusion during each visit.

answer the specific question on the table above. Then, continue to discuss the 3 topics listed below for your case:

  1. Discuss appropriate interventions for adolescents suspected of having an eating disorder. Describe how they would initiate conversations with adolescents about this issue.
  2. Describe the physical changes of adolescents that include natural processes of biology and genetics
  3. Discuss the prevalence of violence among adolescents. Identify ways that health care practitioners can help prevent and educate adolescents about these issues.

Your initial post should be at least 500 words, formatted and cited in current APA style with support from at least 2 academic sources, must be constructive and use literature where possible.
