Guidelines

Below are the requirements needed for successful completion
of the Windshield Survey Form.

Introduction to the Community: Identify the community you
will be using for this assignment with the city and state and provide a brief,
one paragraph description of the community. Your community should be the area
where you live or the area surrounding your work setting. The community must
include a residential area and be broad enough to answer the survey questions.
You do not need to include demographic data.
Windshield Survey: Assess your community by doing a
windshield survey. Information about the components of a windshield survey is
located in your textbook, Nies & McEwen (2015) on page 98 (Box 6-2). Drive
through the area and report your observations by describing each of the
following six areas using a majority of the questions from each category of Box
6-2 as your guide (one to two in depth paragraphs for each category). Be sure
to include what you observed related to each of these categories, and also
include any significant items that are missing in your community because this
may be equally important in identifying a community health problem.
Community vitality
Indicators of social and economic conditions
Health resources
Environmental conditions related to health
Social functioning
Attitude toward healthcare
Note: It is helpful to conduct this assessment at least two
different times: during the day or evening, on a weekday and/or on the weekend.
If possible, plan on asking someone to drive during your survey so that you can
take notes.

Vulnerable population: Identify an aggregate or vulnerable
population in your community based on your observations. What did you observe
about this population? See Units five (5) and six (6) in Nies and McEwen (2015)
for examples of vulnerable populations and aggregates.
Conclusion: Provide a summary of your findings. Describe
several potential community health problems for the vulnerable population that
you identified.
References: The purpose of this assignment is to document
your observations of your community. Outside sources are not required. However,
if sources are used, these sources must be cited within the form (Author, year)
and listed in the reference section in APA format (see APA resources for help
with formatting).

Caring for Populations Milestone 3: Intervention and
Evaluation PowerPoint Guidelines

Updated 4/27/2017

Purpose

The purpose of this PowerPoint presentation is to provide an
opportunity to develop a community health nursing intervention and evaluation
plan for a community health problem that you identified in your community
(described in Milestone 2: Vulnerable Population Assessment). You will apply
the components of the nursing process to assist this vulnerable population and
develop a proposal that could be presented to community leaders.

Course Outcomes

This assignment enables the student to meet the following
course outcomes.

CO1: Apply principles of nursing theory to the public health
system by analyzing determinants of health and the public health intervention
wheel. (PO 1)

CO3: Plan prevention and population-focused interventions
for vulnerable populations using professional clinical judgment and evidence-based
practice. (PO 4, 8)

CO4: Evaluate the delivery of care for individuals,
families, aggregates, and communities based on theories and principles of
nursing and related disciplines. (PO 1)

Due Date

Submit your PowerPoint presentation by 11:59 p.m. MT Sunday
by the end of Week 6.

Points

This assignment is worth a total of 225 points.

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 and vulnerable
population assignments (the first two milestones) and identified one community
health problem that a nurse can impact. Now, review the scholarly literature or
scholarly websites listed below and identify one specific evidence-based
nursing intervention that has the potential to improve the health of this
group. Then develop a proposal to implement this intervention and a plan to
evaluate the outcomes of this intervention. Create a PowerPoint that you could
use to present to an organization in your community to request approval for
funding and support for this intervention. (You are not required to implement
the intervention or present your PowerPoint, though you may want to consider
implementing your project in the future).
