Abstract:
Session presented on Sunday, July 27, 2014: Assessing the needs of the community is an important part of healthcare and integral to the development, initiation and evaluation of health education programs, policies and regulations that promote population, community and public health and quality of life. The purpose of this symposium is to describe the integration of community and global health into curriculum for education, practice, research and policy initiatives using an inter-professional collaborative team approach consisting of advanced practice nurses (nurse practitioners), public health nurses, physicians, dentists, and public health experts. The program uses a myriad of approaches to provide a thorough assessment of community/populations followed by analysis of social, epidemiological, behavioral , environmental and predisposing, enabling and reinforcing factors that impact the overall health and quality of life of populations at the community and global health level. This assessment includes the use of an ecological/ educational model (i.e. Precede/Proceed) and Vulnerability models as frameworks to evaluate populations and identify at-risk groups so that students at both graduate and doctoral levels (i.e. nurses and physician) can provide evidence based strategies to improve health outcomes. Data obtained from the curriculum has been used thus far for the following: (a) Create curriculum models at several sites in Oregon and California and across disciplines; (b) to establish mentored clinical sites for nurses, dentists, and physician students; (c) building community partners toward community-based participatory research; (d) implementation of health promotion, quality and safety strategies across the life-span that is evidence-based and culturally sensitive; (e) influence policy. This innovative curriculum transcends to the global level through fostering student/faculty critical analysis of global health problems related to social, political and cultural barriers to health. It includes education, practical experiences and global partnerships.
