You are a Community/Public Health Nurse (C/PHN) working in your setting of choice. You have identified a community health problem and have analyzed the data collected from your community outreach focus group. You have decided on a nursing intervention and need your organization’s approval for funding of this intervention. Your superiors have agreed to listen to your proposal.
• Choose a community health nurse setting. You may change the setting from the one you identified in your previous assignment, but you are encouraged to keep the same setting. Some examples are school nurse, parish nurse, home health nurse, nurse working in the health department (be specific to what area in the health department, e.g., WIC, STD clinic, health promotion, maternal-child health, etc.)
• Introduce the identified problem and reiterate at least one to two important findings (average of 1-2 slides)
• Propose one community health nursing intervention that would address one or more of the major direct or indirect factors that contribute to the problem. Keep in mind the Public Health Intervention Wheel (Nies & McEwen, p. 14, figure 1-3) as your framework (average of 3-4 slides). Your intervention needs to be specific:
o Who is your target population?
o Where is this intervention taking place?
o Will it take place one time or multiple times?
o How will you reach out to your target population?
How will you get your target population involved?
o Will you collaborate with anyone (e.g., physician’s office, church, local resources, etc.?)
o Is anyone else involved besides yourself (C/PHN)?
If yes, are they paid or volunteers?
o What level(s) of prevention is your intervention addressing?
• Justify why the problem and your nursing interventions should be a priority.
o Based on what you have found in the literature, discuss why these interventions are expected to be effective. Include at least two professional scholarly sources related to your interventions (average of 2-3 slides).
• Evaluation: Your presentation must include at least one quantitative or qualitative evaluation tool. It should include your method along with desired outcomes. Outcome measurement is a crucial piece to implementing interventions. (average of 2-3 slides)
o What will be the long-term and short-term impact on your community if the intervention is “successful?” Keep in mind your desired outcomes when analyzing the evaluation.
• Your presentation should include a title slide, an introduction slide, summary slide, and reference slide.
o The introduction should describe the problem in your community and your purpose for this presentation.
o The summary should reiterate the main points of the presentation and conclude with what you are asking to be accomplished, e.g., “Based on ABC, it is imperative our community has XYZ. Thank you for your consideration.”
• Remember, you are presenting to your superiors, so the slides should include the most important elements for them to know. You may add additional comments in the notes section to clarify information for your instructor.
• Application: Use Microsoft PowerPoint 2007
• Length: The PowerPoint slide show is expected to be no more than 20 slides in length (not including the title slide and reference list slide).
• Submission: Submit your files via the basket in the Dropbox: “Caring for Populations: Intervention and Evaluation” by 11:59 p.m. Sunday of Week 6.
• Technical Writing: APA format is required.
• Submit assignment with your last name in document title. Example: “Smith Intervention and Evaluation”
