You will create in which you (a)  teach the class how to conduct the icebreaker. You may teach this any way that makes sense – you might demonstrate yourself conducting the icebreaker (please do not use a real client) or teach the class how to do it another way. Then, (b) explain the way you hope it helps you develop cohesion in the group setting with reference to the information in the course readings.

In the second part of your post, when you explain the way this icebreaker helps to develop cohesion, please refer to at least 2 specific parts of the textbook.

You are an Infection Control Practitioner (ICP) for your county’s Public Health clinic. You have been invited to speak to a group of registered nurses who work in the public school system and a county-led group home. Your job is to provide education about common STDs and STIs with a focus on how the latest medications function to treat the disease.

For your initial post, share an example of an STD caused by a bacterial infection and one caused by a viral agent. How would each of these STDs be transmitted, what are the primary signs and symptoms of each, and what medication treatment options are available. Describe how each medication works to control the replication, transmission, and related signs and symptoms of the diseases.
