Fill in the vertical column for each table that requests information on the Seven A’s. When filling in these boxes, place the most pertinent information that you think informs the assessment
Community Project There two parts to the Community Project: 1) Community Assessment and 2) Community Intervention Project. You will submit a paper for each of the two parts of the Community Project. Overview of the entire project: You will assess and develop a proposed community health nursing intervention to meet an identified need and/ or gap in your own community. Assessment of the community is the first step to identifying the need or gap in which a community health nurse can intervene. The intervention must be within the scope of the staff level public health/ community health nurse. (Note: you cannot propose building facilities or purchasing a mobile health van). The intervention should demonstrate your application of previous learning in the program related to process improvement and evidence-based nursing practice. Quality peer-reviewed references are required to support the need as well as the structure, elements, and evaluation of the intervention. Note that census and other epidemiological data is not available down to zip codes or census tracts in Florida- only by county and/ city. Part One, Community Assessment: Collect relevant data about your community by completing Parts 1 -5 of the Community Health Nursing Assessment Tool. The Community Data Collection Tool, Parts 1-5 will be submitted in Include references to support the data collected. The form is a tool to assist as you collect and organize data and information about your community. Community Data Collection Tool Your Data Assessment Paper will cover Parts 1-7. This will provide the data and framework for the Community Assessment paper due later in the course. The data from the first paper will be synthesized for the final paper to support your initiative/ program you are proposing. The sources of evidence notes after each area will assist in developing your references for both papers. This Tool is for collection of information and should NOT be submitted for the paper. Suggestions for Table Use: 1. Read all horizontal and vertical columns. These will give clues about the key questions to ask. 2. Fill in the vertical column for each table that requests information on the Seven A’s. When filling in these boxes, place the most pertinent information that you think informs the assessment. 3. In some instances, you need to consider collecting data on multiple years to identify trends. You can duplicate these tables and use them to collect the data on different years using census data. 4. Remember that this is a working document that you can adjust and revise to meet the needs of the community you are assessing. The collection of data is more than filling in the boxes. 5. You may need to collect additional data in a particular area, depending on what you learn as you go. For example, you may fill in the boxes about the number of schools in a community, but you may also want to know the number of students per faculty member, if a community collaborator cited that as a concern. 6. In some instances, there will be overlap of data collection. In the analysis section, these data will provide a variety of perspectives.
