Public Health Survey Assignment
Communities have different public health issues and concerns that must be addressed. An example of a specific application might include the Rural Healthy People 2010 – Models for Practice, which is a compilation of best practices in addressing rural health concerns, as seen on the Public Health Texas A&M Health Science Center website.
Choose a geographic community and describe ongoing health activities specific to identified health concerns.
Present a 12- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation that identifies a local public health issue and how it relates to nationally identified objectives by using the following criteria:
- Identify sources of data the community uses to assess targeted determinants of health in support of these activities.
- Describe the data collection standards used to determine population health concerns in this community such as disease definition specified populations and defined time periods.
- Describe how the data sources could be used to determine the focus of health care in the community–individual or the whole population–including implications for targeted populations.
- Explain health care determinants that impact population health.
