Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Our busy community hospital is located in the mid-Atlantic region and serves a diverse population with a wide range of medical, physical, and emotional needs. The Community Health Education (CHE) department grew from a small group of interested nursing staff to a department within the Community Medicine and Wellness Service Line approximately 20 years ago. The mission of CHE is to provide accessible, population-sensitive health education and wellness opportunities to our community. Reporting directly to the Service Line Director, the department is led by a nurse as the Community Outreach Manager. RN Health Education Specialists, health educators and fitness instructors report directly to her. The department is divided into four clinical areas including Birth and Family, Parish Nurse, Community, and Fitness and offers a wide range of classes from pre-natal and post-partum yoga to bullying, smoking prevention and grief support groups specifically tailored to children, teens, adults, and older adults. Health fairs, wellness programs, and blood pressure screenings are regularly held. CHE supports a vigorous Parish Nurse program including certification in that specialty. Six local schools of nursing place over 20 students per year with the department. In 2005, our hospital led a countywide assessment with other local agencies to identify the needs of our community. Based on this assessment, targeted programs are continuously being developed. In 2009, CHE sponsored approximately 800 events and reached 30, 000 community residents. The structure of the CHE department facilitates the scope of these outreach programs.
