Week 1 Discussion Latest 2017 April
Determinants of Health (graded)
What are some factors that make some people
healthy and others ill? Healthy People 2020 identifies five determinants of
health that influence the health of individuals and populations. Healthy People
2020 describes them as “a range of personal, social, economic, and
environmental factors that influence health status” (U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services, 2014, About Determinants of Health, para. 1). Determinants
fall into five categories including: (a) policy making, (b) social factors, (c)
health services, (d) individual behavior, and (e) biology and genetics.
Go to the “Determinants of Health”
link at http://www.healthypeople.gov/2020/about/foundation-health-measures/Determinants-of-Health
and click on each determinant to read about them.
Choose one of the five determinants. In your
post, describe this determinant and its importance.
Discuss how this determinant relates to one
intervention from the Public Health Intervention Wheel (Nies & McEwen,
2015, pp. 14–15).

Week 2 Discussion Latest 2017 April

Demographic and Epidemiological Assessment
(graded)
For this discussion, you will collect
assessment data about your city or county. This post will include information
about demographics (general characteristics) and epidemiological data (disease
or health behavior rates) of your community.
Demographic data: Go online to the U.S. Census
Bureau at https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/. Obtain a range information about
the demographic characteristics of the population for your city or county of
residence. You may have to look at county data if your city is not listed.
Discuss demographic data about age, ethnicity, poverty levels, housing, and
education.
Epidemiological data: Go to your city or
county health department website (search the Internet) or County Health
Rankings (http://www.countyhealthrankings.org/) and report epidemiological data
about your area.
Identify several priority health concerns for
your area.
Here is a helpful tip sheet about the U.S.
Census website located in Course Resources that will assist you in using this
website as a resource.

Caring for Vulnerable Populations (graded)
Review the Week 3 Case Study that is found in
Course Resources. This case study focuses on a vulnerable young woman who is
facing many risk factors.

Discuss
several risk factors that may impact health outcomes for vulnerable
populations.

Assurance is one of the three core functions
of public health. Find a resource in your community (other than WIC)that
could assist Mary during her pregnancy. Start by searching the Internet for
your local health department’s website. What services does it provide for
pregnant women, those living in poverty, or those with mental health concerns?
What about your local welfare office? Does it provide prenatal or mental health
services? Are there any service organizations, crisis pregnancy centers, or
churches providing help for pregnant women or those experiencing mental health
concerns? (The Internet, your local newspaper, and the telephone book may also
help you locate resources.)

Briefly
describe the types of services that you found.
Choose
one agency and assess this agency in terms of the 4 A’s. Is it accessible,
acceptable, affordable, or available for Mary or other pregnant women that
you case manage?
Are
there adequate resources for other vulnerable populations in your
community?

SCENARIO
You are a community public health nurse
(C/PHN) working with the vulnerable population you identified in Milestone 2.
You will choose a specific community health role that would serve this
population. You have analyzed the data collected from your windshield survey

QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE EVALUATION METHODS
For the final assignment in NR 443: Community
Health Nursing, you will need to utilize a qualitative or quantitative
evaluation method to evaluate your proposed intervention.
Qualitativeevaluation
techniques generally are subjective data and can include methods such as:
• observation methods
• interviews
• focus groups
• other non-statistical data
Example:
If your proposed intervention is related to
childhood obesity, you may want to interview the children pre and post
intervention to see if their attitude about food and health has changed. This
would be a qualitativeevaluation
method.
Example:
For the same intervention, you want to have a
focus group with pre and post intervention with parents to see if their children’s
attitudes about food have changed. This would be a qualitativeevaluation method.
Quantitativeevaluation
techniques generally are objective data and can include methods such as:
• surveys/questionnaires
• pre/posttests
• physiologic data
• statistical analysis
Example:
Your proposed intervention is the same as the
example above, but instead of an interview, you would like to measure the
children’s weight pre and post your intervention. This would be a quantitativeevaluation method.
Example:
Another example of a quantitativeevaluation method would
be having a pre and posttest on healthy foods and importance of exercise. You
would compare the pre intervention test results with the post to measure if
your intervention was effective.
