Evidence-Based Population Health Improvement Plan

Professional Context

Master’s-level nurses need to be able to think beyond the bedside. It is important to be able to research, synthesize, and apply evidence that will result in improved health outcomes for the communities and populations that are part of your care setting. Improving outcomes at a community or population level, even incrementally, can create noticeable and significant aggregate health improvements across all of a care setting’s patients.

Scenario

Your organization has created an initiative to improve one of the pervasive and chronic health concerns in the community. Some examples of possibilities for health improvement initiatives are nationwide concerns, such as type 2 diabetes, HIV, obesity, and the Zika virus. However, your organization wants you to identify the health concern that is most appropriate to address for the community in your practice environment. You will need to do your own research to gather and evaluate the relevant data for your chosen issue.

Instructions

The bullet points below correspond to grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your population health improvement plan addresses all of the bullets below, at minimum. You may also want to read the Evidence-Based Population Health Improvement Plan Scoring Guide and Guiding Questions: Evidence-Based Population Health Improvement Plan (both linked in the Resources) to better understand how each criterion will be assessed:
