Title:
Options for Healthy Living: A Community-Based Program
Abstract:
Options for Healthy Living: A Community-Based Program
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Rosenthal, Kathryn (Kay) Ann, PhD, RN
P.I. Institution Name:Options for Healthy Living, Inc
Title:Director, Options for Healthy Living
Purpose: Share how to set up a Community-Based Wellness program in your rural community setting to enhance the wellness of community members and visitors to your area. Background: As former Director of Nursing/Assistant Administrator of Estes Park Medical Center, a 16 bed acute care hospital I identified an unmet need in the community, a wellness program for all ages. So I resigned my position and began creating “Options for Healthy Living”. The Options team consists of a dietician, pharmacist, clinical herbalist for consultations as needed by the clients, and myself a Registered Nurse, offering physical assessment examination, goal setting and monitoring of success, and an incentive program to reward positive changes in the clients health. Clients track their progress in a logbook titled “Passport for Health”. The logbook is reviewed quarterly with clients. To measure the change in the health of the community clients are asked to participate in a research study. Baseline information is obtained and reviewed annually. The initial results of one year’s data collection will be shared with the conference attendees. Information on the program and how to set up a wellness program in your rural setting will be shared with attendees. Program documentation such as, visit notes, health survey, medical history, “Passport for Health” logbook, physician referrals, consent forms will be reviewed. Marketing strategies such as: flyers, postcards, open houses, power-point presentation to service groups, letters for financial backing, will be shared. Articles submitted to the local newspapers will be discussed.
