You will prepare a essay based on the following case study:

Susan is a 45-year-old woman who lives in a rural and remote Queensland town. Susan is a single parent of two children aged 13 and 15. Susan is unemployed and is tight. Her only source of income is unemployment benefits. Susan also worries about her health.

Susan has a family history of Type 2 Diabetes. She does not like exercising and feels unmotivated. Susan eats processed foods as they are cheap and she doesn’t have to cook.

Susan feels stressed about her current situation. Her GP, Dr Smith, has noticed that she has gained weight. She also feels tired all the time and needs to go to the toilet a lot. Dr Smith has referred Susan to the local Community Health Centre Nurse (you) for some additional support to assist Susan to reduce her risk factors for Type 2 Diabetes.
