What strategies are used to protect vulnerable populations (pregnant women, children, prisoners) from harm when conducting nursing research? Please include in this discussion a definition in your own words or a resource’s words of what a vulnerable population is. Remember that as nurses, we would be tempted to think of all of our patients as vulnerable, however there are specific groups of patients that fall within this definition. If you use a source, please remember to cite and reference it.
The purpose of this paper is to identify and assess an aggregate or vulnerable population in your community. You will also describe one community health problem that impacts this group. This problem must be one that a community health nurse could positively impact.
