Considerations in the Use of Geographic Information Systems to Plan Population-Based Nursing Interventions

The increasing emphasis on population level health care has resulted in new interest in communities and ways to enhance their health. This emphasis is the result of a renewed understanding of both the multiple levels of factors affecting health and the importance of social support and social networks to good health. Research in child health has concluded that the effectiveness of many programs aimed at improving children’s health in the future will depend on their successful implementation within and across interorganizational networks in their community. Geographic information systems (GIS) offer nurses a new technology to plan and implement population level interventions in such networks. In a time of increasing competition for health care funding they provide a spatial framework to support decisions for the intelligent use of earth’s resources. This presentation gives an overview of GIS systems and their use and the lessons learned from a project designed to test the potential of using GIS for nurse developed interventions at the population level. Three uses: needs assessment, participatory planning and evaluation are identified. Data considerations and resource needs to utilize geographic information sytems are discussed. Examples from this ongoing project are presented.
