Evidence-Based Population Health

Evidence-Based Population Health

Develop a population health improvement plan, based on your evaluation of the best available demographic, environmental, and epidemiological data, that focuses on your diagnosis of a widespread population health issue.

Part of effectively engaging in evidence-based practice is the ability to synthesize raw health data with research studies and other relevant information in the literature. This will enable you to develop sound interventions, initiatives, and outcomes to address health concerns that you find in data during the course of your practice.

    Evidence-Based Practice

  •  Assessment Instructions
    Preparation
    Your organization is undertaking a population health improvement initiative focused on one of the pervasive and chronic health concerns in the local community. Examples of health improvement initiatives include nationwide concerns, such as type 2 diabetes, HIV, obesity, and Zika. However, your organization has asked you to determine which widespread health concern should be addressed in a population health improvement plan for the community in which you practice and has entrusted you with gathering and evaluating the relevant data.
    Requirements
    Note: The requirements outlined below correspond to the grading criteria in the scoring guide, so be sure to address each point. In addition, you may want to review the performance level descriptions for each criterion to see how your work will be assessed.

    • Identify the relevant data.
    • Describe the major community health concerns suggested by the data.

      • Consider the environmental realities and challenges that exist in the community.
      • Address potential barriers or misunderstandings related to the various cultures prevalent in the community.
    • Justify the value and relevance of the evidence you used as the basis of your plan.

      • Explain why your proposed criteria are appropriate and useful measures of success.

      • Ensure that your strategy enables you to make complex medical terms and concepts understandable to members of the community, regardless of language, disabilities, or level of education.
