Collecting information is one of the main procedures for high-quality and effective patient education about current problems. Thus, nurse practitioners (NP) should use information based on proven data in their practice to provide it to patients. Furthermore, it is essential to indicate the harm and risks from such negative human actions as pollution. In addition to the rates sacred with this issue, it is necessary to collect information on the effects that the current waste management standards have on people’s well-being and how not following them can ruin the health of individuals. Moreover, data training is also crucial in relation to e-waste. In this context, NP will have to examine for patients who are exposed to e-waste, the prevalence of e-waste exposure in families, and the risk factors that lead to the exposure.
Although professional organizations have considered the effects of e-waste on public health, the needs of families specifically have not been addressed fully. Specifically, several white papers, such as “EU actions and existing challenges on electronic waste” (2021), have focused on the issue briefly. Furthermore, a Family Nurse practitioner must focus on advocating proper waste management in patients and their families and educating them about the strategies for disposing of e-waste. As an educator, a FNP must be collecting the information about the necessity to dispose of e-waste properly and avoid the settings where e-waste can be found. Therefore, advanced practice registered nurses are aware of the current problem and are ready to support actions invented to limit the negative impact of the issue.
Furthermore, it is essential to conduct and investigation, and have an examination of the knowledge about what can be significantly harmful for the qualities of life of people. Firstly, these actions should be fixed in the existing policy about waste standards. To improve the situation, patients will be explained such information as the threat to hazardous waste and the means of reducing exposure to e-waste. Change implies introducing standards for removing e-waste and offering alternatives to landfills for managing regular waste for companies. Specifically, patients will be taught about the means of disposing of e-waste, the strategies of safeguarding children against e-waste exposure.
