Describe the impact of the health issue at the level of the community AND the population.

Description
This assessment task requires you to examine a health issue from the below list (Australian Health Performance Framework - AHPF). The below link has been provided to assist you in beginning your research into your chosen topic.

Purpose

This assessment task requires you to examine a community and population health issue and identify key points where changes can be made. An understanding of what is possible is required by any health care professional when approaching an issue if they are to plan for a genuine outcome. In addition, professional skills in presenting a poster for a healthcare conference are developed.

Part A
1. Describe the impact of the health issue at the level of the community AND the population.

Part B

1. Outline one key point where changes can be made for both the community AND the population. The identified changes should highlight the role of the nurse.

Part C

1. Develop an action plan, using evidence-based research, to address your chosen health issue, targeting one key area of change that you outlined in part B. Here, you will utilise Stage 2 of the Health Promotion Planning Cycle (HPPC) to identify illness prevention strategies.
