In the lecture for the week, a theory was identified. Knowledge as a component of the socio-cultural orientation basic conditioning factor enhances the prevention of hazards is a theory from a major nursing framework. Identify the framework and provide an example of how other applications of this theory may occur in nursing practice. For example, you may say that education may enhance the reduction of free-throw rugs in an elderly persons home which will prevent falls. Tie the concepts together by clearly defining them and how they could be measured. Find an instrument, survey, or tool in the literature that could be used to measure the concept. For example, if you are measuring pain, you might use the Faces Pain Scale-Revised, at the following link:
Education may enhance mothers understanding of neonatal feeding cues which will prevent inadequate weight gain. According to Singleterry (2012), the responsiveness and quality of mothers interactions to their neonates feeding cues are extremely important in allowing the infant to develop healthy eating habits and patterns (Singleterry, 2012). Healthy eating patterns and habits contribute to adequate and sufficient weight gain, thereby decreasing the risk of failure to thrive in infants. The quality of a mothers responsiveness can be observed through the mothers positioning, reactions, verbal, visual, and tactile answers; while infant feeding cues have been identified as babbling, crying, and even falling asleep during the feeding (Singleterry, 2012). Aside from weighing infants at every visit, as well as at home, providers use a standardized weight and growth curve to track and measure. These standardized growth curves were created by the World Health Organization (WHO) and adopted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Utilizing the standardized growth curves would be the tool necessary to measure if a neonate is having adequate weight gain or lack of weight gain. The Barnard Parent-Child Interaction Model is a great theoretical framework that can be used to measure the quality of the mother-infant interaction process (Singleterry, 2012). Providing all mothers with education in regard to assessing and properly responding to infant feeding cues will help the establishment of healthy feeding patterns. Positive responses to feeding cues by mothers will lead to healthy feeding patterns that can contribute to satisfactory weight gain in infants. It must be noted that education alone will not effectively determine or guarantee that a neonate will gain a healthy and adequate amount of weight, as there are other factors that can impede the weight gain process; however, providing mothers with proper and sufficient education can start them in the right direction.

Education about seatbelt and car seat safety should start at a very young age. According to the CDC, as many as 53% of people that had fatalities in car accidents were not wearing a seatbelt, this includes drives and passengers. Car accidents can happen at any time, whether it is distracted driving or weather related. Seat belts dramatically reduces risk of death and serious injury. Among drivers and front-seat passengers, seat belts reduce the risk of death by 45%, and cut the risk of serious injury by 50% (2011). Educating new or expecting parents is also important. The new standards for infants and toddlers that they are rear facing until the age of two and they meet the highest weight and height allowed for their rear facing car seats. Then after rear facing, they continue to sit in the appropriate seats. Seat belts are made for adults. Children should stay in a booster seat until adult seat belts fit correctly, typically when children reach about 4 feet 9 inches in height and are 8 to 12 years of age (2021).
This website above is a great recourse with tables and explanations on when the appropriate time is for children to move up in their seats. By giving the proper education on seatbelt safety to adults/ parents to pass on to their children and create positive behaviors while in the car then it can mean less people in the hospital following car accidents or even better less deaths related to car accidents.
