Introduction:

More emphasis is being placed on healthier communities as changes are occurring in the fields of healthcare financing, policy, and focus. One of the primary roles of a community health nurse is to assess the community or population in order to determine its health status in relation to its assets and needs.

You do not have to answer every question listed in the assessment tools. Each of these tools can be found either in the web links section or as an attachment to this task.

  • Population Economic Status Assessment
  • Neighborhood/Community Safety Inventory
  • Cultural Assessment Tool
  • Disaster Assessment and Planning Guide
  • Windshield Survey
  • Population Health Scavenger Hunt

Note: The name of each of the six tools should be identified in the needs assessment summary, along with a brief summary of how each of the six tools was used in the needs assessment.

  1. Interpret the collected data using concepts of epidemiology and health determinants (e.g., birth rate, death rate, rates of disease, morbidity).
  1. Formulate an appropriate community diagnosis for the selected community by doing the following (suggested length of 4–6 pages):
