The goal of this project was to improve cardiovascular health within a community nursing model in Broward County, Florida. The designated community encompasses a multiethnic, multicultural population and a wide range of income groups even though a large segment of the population is economically disadvantaged. Particularly prominent in the population are people of color including African-American and immigrants from the Caribbean Islands such as Jamaica, Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas, and Puerto Rico. This is a population at risk for hypertension, diabetes, stroke and cardiovascular problems. The perspective of the community is important in developing health promotion strategies particularly in areas of great diversity of people. Therefore focus group interviews were conducted in phase I to identify the perceived needs and solicit preferences for program planning to meet those needs. Subjects for the focus groups were solicited through a senior center and a day care center in order to access a wide range of ages; children, parents (young adults), employees of the two agencies, and senior citizens. Baseline health data will be collected using the SF-36 form of the health Survey. Individual interviews were done to collect the data. Based upon the focus group findings and the outcomes of the health survey, cardiovascular health promotion activities were planned and implemented in phase II by the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, Florida Atlantic University. Following the health promotion activities, focus group data and health survey data will again be collected to evaluate the effectiveness both qualitatively and quantitatively. This project provides a pilot for a community-based nursing model allowing care that is grounded in community needs and planned in conjunction with the recipients of care. Data from the study can be used to develop more effective ways of addressing the health care needs of a community.
