For the final assignment in NR 443: Community Health Nursing, you will need to utilize a qualitative or Quantitative evaluation method to evaluate your proposed intervention.
Qualitative evaluation techniques generally are subjective data and can
Include methods such as:
•other non statistical data
Example: If your proposed intervention is related to childhood obesity, you
May want to interview the children pre and post intervention to see if their attitude about food and health has changed. This would be a qualitative
For the same intervention, you want to have a focus group with pre and post intervention with parents to see if their children’s attitudes about food have changed. This would be a qualitative evaluation method.
Quantitative evaluation techniques generally are objective data and
Can include methods such as:
Your proposed intervention is the same as the example above, but instead of an interview, you would like to measure the children’s weight pre and post your intervention. This would be a quantitative evaluation method.
Another example of a quantitative evaluation method would be having a pre and posttest on healthy foods and importance of exercise. You would compare the pre intervention test results with the post to
Measure if your intervention was effective
Guidelines for Caring for Populations Milestone 3:
Intervention and Evaluation
The purpose of this PowerPoint presentation is to provide an opportunity to develop a community health nursing intervention and evaluation tool for your identified community health problem (described in Milestone 2: Assessment and Diagnosis) and identify the components of the nursing process as they apply to a community or population.
This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes.
CO1: Apply principles of nursing theory to the public health system by analyzing determinants of health and the public health intervention wheel. (PO 1)
CO3: Plan prevention and population-focused interventions for vulnerable populations using professional clinical judgment and evidence-based practice. (PO 4, 8)
CO4: Evaluate the delivery of care for individuals, families, aggregates, and communities based on theories and principles of nursing and related disciplines. (PO 1)
You are a community public health nurse (C/PHN) working in your setting of choice. You have analyzed the data collected from your windshield survey and assessment and diagnosis assignments (the first two milestones) and identified one community health nursing problem. You have decided on one nursing intervention and need your organization’s approval for funding of this intervention. Your leadership team has agreed to listen to your proposal.
• Choose a community health nurse setting. Some examples of settings are school nurse, parish nurse, home health nurse, nurse working in the health department (be specific to what area in the health department, e.g., WIC, STD clinic, health promotion, maternal-child health, etc.)
• Introduction: Introduce the identified problem, the purpose of the presentation, and reiterate at least one or two important findings that demonstrate this problem in your community (average of 1–2 slides)
• Proposed Intervention: Propose one community health nursing intervention that would address one or more of the major factors that contribute to the problem (average of 3–4 slides).
o Describe your specific nursing intervention relating it to the public health intervention wheel (Nies & McEwen, 2015, p. 14, Figure 1-3)
o Who is your target population?
o Where is this intervention taking place?
o Will it take place one time or multiple times?
o How will you reach out to your target population?
How will you get your target population involved?
o What is the CH nurse’s role in this intervention?
o Will you collaborate with anyone (e.g., physician’s office, church, local resources, etc.)
o Is anyone else involved besides yourself (C/PHN)?
If yes, are they paid or volunteers?
o What level(s) of prevention is your intervention addressing (primary, secondary, or tertiary prevention)?
• Intervention Justification: Justify why the problem and your nursing intervention should be a priority.
o Based on what you have found in the scholarly literature, discuss why these interventions are expected to be effective.
o Include summarized information from at least two professional scholarly sources from peer reviewed journals related to your intervention (average of 2–3 slides).
• Proposed Evaluation Methods: Your presentation must include at least one proposed quantitative or qualitative evaluation method that you would use to determine whether your intervention is effective. Outcome measurement is a crucial piece when implementing interventions (average of 2–3 slides)
o Describe at least one quantitative or qualitative method you would use to evaluate whether your intervention was effective. (There is a helpful tool found in Doc Sharing to assist you with understanding qualitative and quantitative methods of evaluation).
o Describe the desired outcomes you would track that would show whether your intervention was working.
o Include a discussion about the long-term and short-term impact on your community if the intervention is successful.
• Summary: The summary should reiterate the main points of the presentation and conclude with what you are asking to be accomplished; for example, “Based on ABC, it is imperative our community has XYZ. Thank you for your consideration.”
• In addition to the slides described above, your presentation should include a title slide with your name included and a reference slide. Remember, you are presenting to your leadership team, so the slides should include the most important elements for them to know in short bullet pointed phrases. You may add additional comments in the notes section to clarify information for your instructor.
• Application: Use Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 (or later).
• Length: The PowerPoint slide show is expected to be no more than 20 slides in length (not including the title slide and reference list slide).
• Save the assignment with your last name in the file title: example: “Smith Intervention and Evaluation.”
• Late Submission: See the course policy on late submissions.
• Tutorial: If needed, Microsoft Office has many templates and tutorials to help you get started.
BEST PRACTICES IN PREPARING POWERPOINT
The following are best practices in preparing this project.
• Be creative but realistic with your intervention and evaluation tool.
• Incorporate graphics, clip art, or photographs to increase interest.
• Slides should be easy to read with short bullet points and large font.
• Review directions thoroughly.
• Cite all sources within the slides with (author, year) as well as on the reference page.
• Proofread prior to final submission.
• Spell check for spelling and grammar errors prior to final submission.
• Abide by the CCN academic integrity policy.
