Your organization has created an initiative to improve one of the pervasive and chronic health concerns in the community. Some examples of possibilities for health improvement initiatives include type 2 diabetes, HIV, obesity, and communicable diseases. You will need to do your own research to gather and evaluate the relevant data for your chosen issue.
Once you have created a presentation for the initiative, you have been asked to present to a group of community stakeholders. The purpose of your presentation is to inform and enlist support for the initiative from your audience.
The suggested headings for your presentation are:
Community Data Evaluation.
Meeting Community Needs.
In your presentation, you will:
Evaluate the environmental and epidemiological data about your community so that you can determine a population health issue within a chosen community.
Identify the relevant data. This can be communicated in a table or chart.
Describe the major population health issue suggested by the data within your community.
Explain how environmental factors affect the health of community residents.
Identify the level of evidence, validity, and reliability for each source.
Develop an ethical health improvement plan with outcome criteria that addresses the population health issue that you identified in your evaluation.
Consider the environmental realities and challenges existing in the community.
Include interventions that will meet community needs.
