When Human Response is to the Community: Establishing an Evidence Base
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006

P.I. Institution Name:University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

Nursing?s social policy statement provides direction for practice. To address the human response to alterations in health, graduate students at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire participate in a nursing course designed to evoke critical thinking about the human response. Students are asked to apply theory, not only to understand an individual?s human response, also to understand the human response of families and communities who have experienced alterations in health. In the wake of natural disasters that have had a profound impact upon families and communities, graduate students have rich opportunity to consider the evidence base for community responses. Students are asked to examine their practice for ideas and to share their stories in class. One student developed her paper around the community response to a 'needy' patient. In some cases, an exhaustive review of extant literature revealed little substantive research into the community response to a particular health alteration, such as suicide, loss of a child, Down Syndrome, or response to a person in need. Students are asked to examine their own responses, to interview others, and to comb relevant literature for ideas and insights. The educational strategy and evidence base we have used in our course, examples of student outcomes, and implications for nursing practice and research will be presented.
