|a.||It includes all states.|
|b.||It affects the illness of patients.|

|d.||The major goal is to achieve optimal levels of health care.|
The nurse must recognize that in the health care delivery system, the major goal is to achieve optimal levels of health care. The health care system consists of a network of agencies, facilities, and providers involved with health care in a specified geographic area. Insurance companies do have involvement in the health care system. The illness of patients is not necessarily affected by the health care system.

- What is required by the health care team to identify the needs of a patient and to design care to meet those needs?
|b.||The physician’s order sheet|
|c.||An individualized care plan|
|d.||The nurse’s notes|
An individualized care plan involves all health care workers and outlines care to meet the needs of the individual patient. The Kardex, physician’s order sheet, and nurse’s notes do not identify the needs of the patient nor are they designed to assist all members of the health care team to meet those needs.

- Patient care emphasis on wellness, rather than illness, begins as a result of:
|a.||increased education concerning causes of illness.|
|b.||improved insurance payments.|
|c.||decentralized care centers.|
|d.||increased number of health caregivers.|
The acute awareness of preventive medicine has resulted in today’s emphasis on education about issues such as smoking, heart disease, drug and alcohol abuse, weight control, and mental health and wellness promotion activities. This preventive education has resulted in an emphasis on wellness, rather than illness. Improved insurance payments, decentralized care centers, and increased numbers of health caregivers did not influence an emphasis on wellness.
