PHN600 Foundations of Public Health Nursing
Week 4 Assignment
Public Health Nursing Assessment
The purpose of this assignment is to perform a public health nursing assessment to determine health needs and appropriate interventions for a population.
Performing a public health nursing assessment is a critical first step in determining health needs and appropriate interventions to meet them. For this assignment, you will perform a public health nursing assessment on a selected population using the Public Health Nursing Tool (PHNAT) included in Chapter 3 of the textbook. You are free to use your setting/population of interest discussed in Topic 3 DQ 1 or choose another population of interest. Consider the importance of preparing and providing quality care to the diverse groups within your target population.
Using the assessment framework provided by the PHNAT, develop a 1,500- to 1,750-word report summarizing your assessment findings and identifying the public health needs for your selected population. Your summary should address the following:
Define your target population.
Describe data collection method and sources.
Analyze and interpret data regarding diversity of target population and correlation of health issues. Include socioeconomic, behavioral, biological, and environmental factors that influence a population’s health and readiness for health promotion and disease prevention interventions.
Discuss cultural issues of diversity that may impact the community health.
Identify a specific community health need. Use 3-5 key data points from the assessment to support your rationale.
Recommend a specific intervention to address the identified community health need.
Defend why the 3-5 data points highlight the need for this intervention.
Describe how community stakeholders would be identified and engaged in the assessment process.
Propose how the assessment findings’ documentation regarding the health issue could be disseminated to the community and its stakeholders.
Develop two specific improvement strategies based on a Healthy People 2030 initiative that could be used to create an initial improvement plan. Present the strategies in the form of two S.M.A.R.T. goals as a measurement.
Support your information with a minimum of two peer-reviewed resources within the last five years.
