Capella BSN4014 Unit 7 Discussion 1
Assessing the Needs of a Community
- In Unit 3, you submitted a Windshield Survey of your community. A Windshield Survey is just one method a community/public health nurse can use to assess the health of a community. For this discussion, consider the following:
- Identify the strengths and limitations of the Problem-Oriented, Single Population, and Familiarization approaches to community assessment.
- How do they compare to the Windshield Survey in relation to providing the best health care services for a community?
Your initial post is to be about 150 words, referenced with at least one APA-formatted reference. It can be a text, any assigned readings, or a reference you find on your own through the Capella Library.
Respond to a post of at least one fellow learner. What additional advantages or limitations to these approaches can you identify?
Your response post should be about 75 words, but may be longer. If you are responding with a personal perspective or an example from your workplace experience, you are not required to cite a source. However, if you offer an alternative viewpoint or refer to the ideas or work of others in your response to a classmate, your response must be supported with an outside source, which you must cite using APA style.
