Canada. Clearly provide your standpoint with well-drawn out arguments. (Use this
question as a class forum/debate)
-Its important cuz there wud be faster preparedness (Faster reaction times)
-Stock piling of emergency safety products
3.What are some indicators of health status and non-medical determinants of health? How
do they help to explain health and illness in our society?
-Life expectancy; Mortality rate; Causes of death
4.According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the gap in health between white
and black Americans has been estimated to cause 84 000 excess deaths a year in the
United States. In the United States, health disparities are well documented in minority
populations such as African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and
Latinos. When compared to European Americans, these minority groups have higher
incidence of chronic diseases, higher mortality, and poorer health outcomes.
In what ways are racism and racialization associated with health and illness?
What strategies could researchers employ in order to explore the role of race in research
on health and illness.

TUT03
1) Nurses in Canada want full-time employment, appropriate workloads, involvement in
decision making and educational opportunities. During the cutbacks of the 1990s, many
nurses were forced into part-time or casual jobs. By the late 1990's, 48% of nursing
positions provided only part-time work. Desperate for stable employment, up to 15% of
new Canadian graduates now move directly to the U.S (Sibbald, 2002, p. 535). Discuss
the push and pull factors influencing the international migration of health care
providers.
a.Push Factors:
a.Economic instability
b. Limited opportunities
c.Impact of HIV/AIDS
d. Danger work environments
e.Lack of career opportunities
b.Pull Factors:
a.Higher pay
b. Better working conditions
c.Have a lot of opportunities
d. Political stability
e.Aid work
2. Which factors have facilitated the emergence of nursing as a prominent health care
occupation? Which factors have served to constrain the development of nursing in
Canada? What implications have changes in medical technology and in the
organization of health care services had for the development of nursing?
